Paul Thompson is the owner of three podiatry businesses, Leisure Coast Podiatry, Berry Podiatry and Illawarra Sports Podiatry, which incorporates Synergy Kids Podiatry. 

Paul has a particular interest in treating children and works with specialised Physiotherapists and OT's, which has helped lift his knowledge and enthusiasm for this specific area of podiatry. 

On this episode we discuss:

  • Why he has three podiatry businesses
  • Why treating children is such a rewarding endeavour. 
  • The enjoyment Paul gets from following a child's progress long-term.
  • Why kids are like plasticine
  • The benefits of asking patients the type of treatment they have received from other health professionals and learning from it. 

"Every patient that you see and treat should be considered as part of your CPD."

"Most of us have basic knowledge on how to treat most foot conditions, but sometimes it's about how to you the patient that makes a big difference."

Final Tip

Podiatry is not an exact science. Don't be afraid to ask questions and try something new. Everything is changeable; every modification is changeable; you just need to have a go.

Podiatry Business Coaching & Mentoring

If you want to own and operate a Thriving Podiatry Business, you've got to work on four specific areas of your business. 

  • Marketing - You need to have a proper, well thought out strategy
  • Systems - You need systems that will support both your marketing and your team.
  • Team - You need to develop a culture that makes your life easier, not harder
  • Diary - This is the backbone. Your diary needs to be structured in a way that maximises patient number per day and in turn, will increase your daily profits. 

Thinking you can just work on one part or maybe two out of four areas and still do well is no longer good enough, you must develop all four pieces of the business puzzle.

If you want to join one of my upcoming Group Coaching Programs or discuss one-on-one Business Coaching & Mentoring, please email me at, and we can set up a Zoom Call and have a quick chat and see where I can help.
