Presentations are appropriately crafted for keynotes, general sessions, or breakout sessions for association or corporate events. Seminar topics are also formal speeches but are more how to presentations on topics that lend themselves to executive development programs, special events, private conferences, retreats and workshops that are appropriate for CME / CEU credit. By customizing to meet specific organizational needs, Dr. Dunaway has earned a standing as a buyer-oriented audience pleaser. From large group presentation to smaller retreat gatherings Dr. Dunaway has a well deserved reputation as a polished speaking professional who uses incisive humor and a deep love of healthcare to create meaningful, effective, and memorable presentations.
Outside of Healthcare Audiences
Although Dr. Dunaway has traditioinally addressed healthcare audiences, he has also developed corporate programs for clients outside of healthcare with titles such as Connecting the Dots of Business, Everything I Learned about Business I Learned in the OR, and If You Can Sell to a Doctor, You Can Sell to ANYONE. Application of Dr. Dunaway's Helathcare Mutual Value Intergration model works well for any business and business insights from this surgeon turned entrepreneur with a distinct surgical flair touches funny bones and raw nerves. (And then he can sew up the holes he used to touch them.) Who says doctors "aren't businessmen?" Many of the blunders healthcare has committed can be used as case studies for any business that depends on branding, positioning, and value interpretation.

And with the advent of Accountable Care Organizations with respect to healthcare reform, improved physician/hospital relationships is a key factor...
