Speaking Consulting Network, 2014

Bete Johnson, Vice President of Business Development CareCredit, a part of GE Capital was the first recipient of the Linda Miles Spirit Award at the 17th annual Speaking Consulting Network in Tampa, FL last month.

SCN is an annual conference where dental practice management consultants, speakers and writers convene each year to hone their skills through networking and collaboration. After individually coaching friends who wished to start or enhance their own speaking or consulting businesses, Linda Miles, of Virginia Beach, VA (in 1996) founded the Speaking Consulting Network with 11 founding members and one Sponsoring Partner, CareCredit. SCN has grown to more than 100 speakers, writers and consultants plus twenty five to thirty supportive dental companies.

This award was presented by Lois Banta, CEO of SCN, and Linda Miles, Founder. The Spirit Award recipient was graded on the values and principles set forth in SCN’s beginning. Bete Johnson, CA exemplifies each of those criteria, even though other members/sponsors were close seconds.

Those values include:

1) Encourages Competition to Excel
2) Coaches Others without Remuneration
3) Spreads Hope that Success is Totally Attainable
4) Is Enthusiastic about the Profession of Dental Speaking and Consulting.
5) Volunteers when SCN Asks
6) Markets and Refers to SCN at Every Opportunity

In 1996, CareCredit was the ONLY sponsoring partner that took a chance or this new organization. Bete Johnson has served on the SCN Committee since the beginning. In addition, CareCredit sponsors many of the SCN members at dental conferences throughout the US. They are the only Premier Platinum Sponsor of SCN.

Lois Banta of MO, CEO since 2010, and Linda Miles, Founder take great pride in each of the SCN’s successful members and the growth that SCN continues to achieve year after year. The 18th Annual SCN Conference will be held in Portland, Oregon June 5-7, 2015. For more information visit the SCN site or Facebook page. www.SpeakingConsultingNewtork.com or call 1-816-847-2055.
