a blog by Chris Barrow

The Covid-19 Business Confidence Forum

I wanted to announce our new free webinar series and Academy membership through this blog at 06:00 this morning but for some reason the platform wouldn't let me in, so one huge attack of chest pains and a FaceTime chat with Rachel Barrow (in Melbourne) later, here I am, better late than never.

In times like these, we have to step up as leaders (and equally risk having a few rotten vegetables thrown at us). My Saturday blog post has been read by 6,800 (and counting) and the feedback convinced me that further action was required to alleviate the immense anxiety expressed by owners, team members and self-employed clinicians.

The Webinar

Thursday 19th March 2020 at 19:00 (UK) and every week.

For as long as it takes each night and every week.

I've asked a panel of Key Opinion Leaders to join me every week from now on for a live webinar to listen to your experiences and concerns as we navigate these uncharted waters together.

To answer questions and give insight, direction and leadership (to the best of our ability).

Colin Campbell - The Campbell Clinic and The Campbell Academy

Sarah Buxton - FTA Law

Simon Thackeray - Thackeray Dental Care

Megan Hatfield - Wetherby Orthodontics

Alan Suggett - UNW Accountants

Mark Topley - The CSR Coach

Lisa Bainham - The Old Surgery Dental Practice and President of ADAM

We may invite other panelists and guests over the weeks ahead.

We will invite a live audience to join us and, should demand exceed the capacity of our platform, we will make a video recording and PDF transcript of every webinar available within 48 hours of each broadcast.

To register go to the landing page:

When you register you will automatically be enrolled as a free member of:

The Extreme Business Academy

Recognising that most practices will have severely restricted availability to treat patients in the weeks ahead, I've decided to "open the gates" to The Academy and give free and unlimited access to all of the vCPD modules, tutorials, interviews and courses, as well as access to The Extreme Business Library of PDFs, templates and spreadsheets.

This offer will initially be available until 30th June and will be reviewed at that time in light of the current health crisis.

The offer is available to dentists all over the world.

It's a golden opportunity for you and all team members to not only bank some vCPD but also to train and prepare yourself for what will be needed when the crisis is over and we all have to crank the business engine back into life.

(For existing Academy members, we are going to give you a three-month extension on your annual renewal date FOC and free access to all courses not yet taken).


Let's make a positive difference.

I've volunteered my social distancing for one month initially and I'm realising that it may be for longer.

During that time here in The Barrow Bunker I'm going to dedicate myself relentlessly to supporting the dental community that has provided me with a good life for 25 years.

Please share this post with others who may benefit.

Please email me directly on if you need private advice - I'll do my best to help or point you in the right direction.
