What did you just say?! It’s Prosper O.T’s first birthday?! No, that can’t be right. Surely it hasn’t been long enough yet!
Although that is how I feel about celebrating Prosper O.T turning one, the reality is that it’s been a year since we have been in operation. It has been an exciting, overwhelming, chock-a-block, but also very rewarding year, and I wouldn’t have had it any other way.
I wanted to write this post to draw your attention to our birthday celebrations (did someone say discounted consultations?) but also to reflect on the year that has been our inauguration.
I am so proud of what we have achieved and learning that I personally have had this year, having worked simultaneously in both the private and public sector. It sure has been an eye-opener as far as the scope of Occupational Therapy (you heard right…. sometimes OT’s don’t know what they actually do either) goes, and my ability to adapt to each individual’s needs and often the complexities of their situations has certainly improved to a level which I didn’t know was capable.
I am grateful for my friends and family who provide constant support (and food!) when i haven’t had enough sleep – maybe this is the year I finally become a coffee drinker. I am also thankful for the people whom I get to work with on a daily basis, who make my job the wondrous, ever exciting daily adventure that it is, and that I love.
“So, enough of the sentimentalities Leesa, what do you have in store for us next?”, I hear you asking.
This year we are working on self-improvement, and making sure that we continue to learn and develop with the needs of our clients by:
Introducing and encouraging client feedback on their experience at our practice. This will be done mostly via email, with new and continuing clients (or parents, or carers) receiving a link to provide feedback about their OT experience. For those of you who aren’t aware, you can already leave a google review on our google page. Client feedback forms will enable us to tailor our practice to the needs of each individual client that we see, and ensure that our continuing development is targeted to the areas that are important to our clients.
New and improved webpage. Sometimes when you start a business, certain aspects fall short in respect to more pressing matters and I personally feel as though our website is one of them (feel free to email or message with suggestions!). This year we are working on an updated version of our existing website which will feature easily accessible information, all of my previous and future blogs, and specials and exciting news throughout our second year.
Specials throughout the year. We think it’s about time we celebrate the little things and begin to give back to our clients who give us so much. To do this we will be introducing specials throughout the year which will correspond with milestones and important events. At the moment we have 10% off of all initial and follow-up consultations booked for the month of September (don’t miss out, click here to book today). Watch out for OT week specials in October, and more throughout 2017-2018.
We would love to hear any suggestions about what you think we can do to celebrate our first year. Be sure to send us an email with your comments or recommendations.
HAPPY FIRST BIRTHDAY PROSPER O.T!! Here’s hoping there will be many more 🙂
