An open letter from Julia Hewagama

Dear audiology professional,

I feel like I’ve blinked and 2018 is over.

It seems like only yesterday we were starting the year, full of vigour and excitement, and it is now Christmas. With 79 audiology locations now open, it’s time for a rest!

It’s staggering to think that we have been talking about Specsavers Audiology for more than a year.

I’m using the festive period to reflect on the year that was and how our team of talented and passionate audiology professionals changed the face of the Australian audiology industry for the better.

Looking back on every individual conversation I have had with you (and all the updates I’ve provided on my puppy – who weighs 37kg now! – and my kitten too of course) and I feel a sense of pride. It has been so wonderful to meet you, hear your stories, understand your frustrations and listen to the sincerity you’ve expressed in wanting to help others.

Conversations with audiology professionals – both Specsavers partners or potential partners – are a huge reason why I love what I do. Helping you realise your potential and fulfil your desire to help others with our support is simply icing on the cake.

If we didn’t get the chance to speak in 2018, never fear, the dawn of a new year gives you an opportunity to think about where you want to be in 12 months’ time, what you want to accomplish and how you want to grow as a person.

If you decide that you want something more and that you want to be part of something spectacular, give me a call and let’s talk.

If you are looking to meet face-to-face, I’ll be hitting the road from early February to meet with any audiology professionals interested in hearing more about our model, our plans for 2019 and how they can be a part of it.

Meet Specsavers Audiology:

  • Central Coast and Newcastle – February 1-2, 2019
  • Townsville – February 6-7, 2019
  • Cairns – February 8-9, 2019
  • Melbourne – February 15-16, 2019

Keep your eyes peeled on for more roadshows updates as the year progresses.

I wish you all and your families a prosperous 2019!
