Promoting Excellence in Healthcare Sales isn’t just our tagline, it’s our goal. Repertoire exists to provide you with information that can help you further build your skills so you can continue to deliver value to your customers. So whether we’re highlighting top performing companies and sales reps, covering new or existing technologies, identifying and delving into market trends, or providing analysis on recent news, it is all weighed against how well it will serve you.

Fortunately, we receive a lot of help that keeps us focused on that goal. We have a dedicated editorial board that openly shares opinions on what we are currently doing in terms of content, as well as what we should be doing. Many of them are in high-level positions where they can see the bigger picture, which helps guide our overall direction. We also have the Rep Councils in both the physician and long-term care markets. They consistently provide us with grass roots knowledge of what is happening with their customers so we can educate our readers on those issues. We travel to a number of industry events, where people are quick to share their views on what is happening in the market, and where we should be concentrating our editorial efforts.

We are taking an additional step in 2008, and would like to ask you to participate. We have purchased a new survey tool that makes it easy to share your views on industry trends, customer issues, and the things you believe are important in today’s changing market. With a few simple clicks, your views will be heard! We believe this will strengthen our content, promote education, and bring the distribution and manufacturing communities closer together. Above all, it will help ensure that the needs of healthcare providers are better addressed by our collective community. To participate, please email me at ckelly@mdsi.org and I will add your name to our list. Thank you.

And speaking of thanks, in the spirit of the Thanksgiving holiday, it is time to give thanks for all the gifts we have in our lives. On the personal side, there are so many people I would love to thank for all of their support and friendship over this past year. Even in tough times, it was very inspiring to me. We all have so much to be thankful for as we settle into the holiday season ... family, friends, health, working in a great industry, living in this country … it couldn’t be any better. Someone once told me it can be eye-opening and uplifting to write out a list of all the blessings you have in your life. Trust me, it was great advice and I would highly recommend it!
