Hakim Group will be launching an innovative new event for the optical calendar on Sunday, 10 September 2023.
Share, Progress, Achieve (SPA) – a pioneering, full-day programme – will take place at the University of Bolton Stadium, offering optometrists and dispensing opticians both within Hakim Group and beyond an unrivalled opportunity to gain all their continuing professional development (CPD) points in a single day.
True to Hakim Group’s ethos of innovation and collaboration, the event will feature dynamic workshops, practical applications for everyday practice, and enlightening discussions, immersing attendees in the latest optometric trends.
The CPD SPA event is part of Hakim Group’s commitment to provide practical tools for independent eye care professionals to excel in their practice, deliver superior patient care, and advance the industry.
Esteemed speakers from within the Hakim Group family of independent practices, including Professor Nicholas Rumney, Paul Adler, Dr Keyur Patel, and Professor Simon Barnard, will share their extensive knowledge and experience across various optometry specialties.
External industry experts such as Andrew Sanders, Dr Alicia Thompson, and special guest Dr Pearse Keane, an ophthalmologist and AI expert, amongst other headline speakers, will also contribute their insights to this ground-breaking event.
“The SPA event is a testament to our commitment towards the continuous advancement of optometry professionals and the optical industry as a whole,” said Claire Slade, head of professional advancement and governance at Hakim Group.
