KATTERMAN LECTURE Managing Change: Pharmacists Shaping the Future of Pharmacy

The University of Washington and the Pharmacy Alumni Association (PAA) are pleased to present motivational speaker and ex-Husky football great, Tom Flick, as keynote speaker for this year’s Katterman Lecture. Joining Tom will be Rod Shafer, chief executive officer, Washington State Pharmacy Association (WSPA), Dedi Hitchens, director, Washington State Pharmacy Legislative & Regulatory Affairs Council and Steve Saxe, executive director, Washington State Board of Pharmacy.

Pharmacy leaders will discuss new legislation and practice issues. Tom Flick will provide strategies and motivation for improving communications within the work place and the pharmacy community as a whole, thereby empowering each of us to not only positively impact our professional, but also optimize our own personal success as a pharmacist.

For the past 16 years, Tom has been helping Fortune 500 companies and leading organizations meet the challenges of today’s business environment, by presenting valuable leadership, strategic team development and change management strategies. He has tackled the business world with the same passion, focus and spirit that earned him honors as a collegiate and professional quarterback. As Rose Bowl quarterback for the Washington Huskies, Tom was voted team captain, Most Inspirational award winner, and Pac-10 conference Player of the Year, before going on to enjoy seven years as a NFL quarterback.

As president of Tom Flick Communications and Outlook Consulting Group, Tom understands that people, not programs, help organizations change and grow. Tom works with a large variety of health, technology, manufacturing and service corporations and associations, helping them meet the challenges of an ever-changing business environment. He addresses over 100,000 men and women each year on high performance strategies for leadership, teamwork, change, and personal growth. His passion for raising employee morale, improving customer service, increasing teamwork and communication, managing change and developing more effective leaders is achieved by his unique gift to connect with the listener’s heart as well as their head and habits. His achievements and experience in the highly competitive worlds of professional sports and corporate America give him a keen insight into success.

Join Tom, local pharmacy leaders and your colleagues as we discuss key state and national pharmacy issues that affect our profession and learn how you as an individual can affect positive change in pharmacy practice. With Tom’s help we can create and implement strategies to improve the quality of life of pharmacists, pharmacy employees, patients and the community.
