I have a weekly 8: 30 a.m. meeting
with my key people and a great video
is even better than a double espresso
macchiato to get everyone off to a
roaring start for the discussion.
Here’s the important part: with
the millions of videos available, it’s
impossible for us to find the best
of the best all the time. So we’re
making this an interactive feature.
We’re recruiting you to identify
the ones that stuck in your mind.
Consider yourself deputized as a
contributor to Healthcare Sales &
Marketing. Email your suggestions
to our editor Neil Greenberg at
After all, this is the motivation for
everything we do, isn’t it? Lighting
a fire under people. Getting them
passionate about the vision. Giving them inspiration for how to do
their work better. Do it for your
colleagues! Do it for the industry!
Do it for the recognition!
Here are the ones we’re offering up

We received such great feedback about our launch issue video article, “Mixing it Up,”
that we’re making it a regular column. Sure, some of them you had seen before. But
they made you laugh, or cry, or become more determined all over again, didn’t they?
