We know from listening to osteopaths that have been the most successful in promoting their practice, that getting engaged with your community, providing talks, sessions on health advice, or even CPD for other health professionals, has proved really successful.

We have now updated our series of ‘template’ presentations with the latest information available, and guidance on key points that you may want to share during your talk.  Each presentation, provides a set of starter slides on which you can add additional information relevant to who you are talking to and your own practice.

The team here at the iO is only small, but we think there are lots of opportunities available around the country, and likely in your area, in which we may be able to help you connect and gain you an invitation to talk.  We are looking to build a network of osteopaths that we can approach when opportunities like these arise.  If you’d like to join our network, let us know by contacting
