What Our Alumni Have To Say

“Hi Jim, I attended the SEAK conference in 2017 and it was life changing. Six months after the conference I started my new dream career as a Medical Strategy Lead with [large contact research organization] I hired a coach that I met at the conference, Philippa Kennealy, and she helped to guide me through the process.”

“I did attend last year in Chicago and am now completely transitioned out of clinical practice into industry. I am a Medical Science Liaison working for [Big Pharma Company] in Women’s Health. I also utilized the services of Michelle Mudge-Riley, as a career coach to help me transition, and I met her through your SEAK course!”

“Hi Jim! Wanted to say thanks for an ILLUMINATING weekend at SEAK! Had moments of clarity back at the clinical grind today—feeling more empowered than ever to leave the grind and follow my passions!”

“Excellent. I was amazed by the diverse group of consultants (41) and attending physicians (400) of all ages.”

“The salary info was very helpful and also whether that type of position is open to part time or not.”

“It was truly mind blowing and so eye opening as I had no idea what opportunities are out there. My goal is to slowly but surely begin to investigate some of the options as additional revenue streams. The course was very comprehensive and had excellent speakers and mentors and opportunities for networking. Thank you and I’ll spread the word!”

“It was an overwhelming experience. I was impressed with so many options available for physicians.”

“Thanks so much for four great days. It was incredibly educational and eye-opening. It really helped to crystallize where I want to go. I greatly appreciated all the various options.”

“Thank you for organizing the conference. I most certainly found the conference useful. The networking opportunities were tremendous. What I found most appealing was the feeling of freedom that fellow attendees and I felt after hearing about the numerous opportunities available for those of us considering leaving clinical medicine. I am now excited and motivated to move forward.”

“Thank you for having the conference! It was eye opening to say the least. (A bit overwhelming) It was packed with good information. So many things to think about.”

“It was truly mind blowing and so eye opening as I had no idea what opportunities are out there.”

“I attended the conference in 2017 and it opened my eyes to many career possibilities. I spoke with a gentleman from hospice and when I returned [home], I called our local hospice and there was a full time physician opening. I am happy to say, it’s been 9 mo and I am so happy. I have found my dream job. I would like to help motivate others to have the courage to change careers. I can’t thank SEAK enough!!”

“I attended SEAK last year and ended up with numerous opportunities and a few offers. I start working as a National [Specialty] Medical Director for _______ in 3 days. I credit SEAK for helping me find this position. All the offers came through LinkedIn, which I learned how to use at SEAK.”

“Hello Jim. I loved your conference when I attended a few years ago. I replaced 75% of my clinical income by becoming President of the [Local] Medical Association (1 year, > $300k), serving on the board of [National] Medical Association, publishing a book, and most recently, becoming a senior fellow at a political think tank.”

“I transitioned from clinical practice to the FDA as a medical officer August 2017. I attended seak fall 2016 and it helped me immensely gather the courage for this change which has significantly improved my life. I have since encouraged several colleagues to attend seak and am a big advocate of your program.”

“I changed from my academic/clinical career to working for a contract research company. Although at a slight decrease in pay, the benefit is a “normal” 40-50 hour a week schedule with all weekends and holidays off. A first since I started working with my paper route at age 12! And going from 100+ hours a week to 50 is much more beneficial!”

“Thanks! I attended last year. I just landed my 1st non-clinical job, and all thanks to a connection I made at the SEAK conference.”

“Thanks to the entire SEAK team for providing excellent content for meaningful action at the annual conference. This event was life changing!”

“Thanks for putting on a great conference two weeks ago in Chicago. I was concerned about spending that much money, but it was definitely worth it. I came to the conference exhausted, looking for a change due to many negative feelings about my current position; I left invigorated and optimistic for my future.”

“I did thoroughly enjoy the conference. I was so encouraged by the stories and the people I encountered this weekend. This conference is truly a wonderful service that you provide.”

“The conference was great. The advice that you and Jim provided has motivated me to take action to improve my professional situation; sometimes overcoming the inertia can feel oppressive. In addition, I connected with a few like-minded individuals attending the conference, which was reassuring. Thank you both for dedicating your careers to this field.”

“Thank you Steve. I was very impressed how you and your company really understood the needs of physicians and addressed them responsibly and with integrity.”

“Welcoming atmosphere with multiple, available and variable non-clinical opportunities and ideas presented in a realistic manner.”

“I appreciate tremendously what you have put together to assist those of us looking for direction in transition. The conference was perfect for my needs and I have benefited immensely already. It gave me tools that I would have had difficulty collecting in such a short period of time if at all.”

“I am very glad I finally came – I was a bit nervous but then when I saw all the other docs from various specialties I felt so validated – loved hearing all the personal stories of both participants and speakers. Also probably one of the few conferences I’ve been to with physicians where they actively talked to each other.”

“This was one of the most rewarding conferences that I have attended and it was time and money very well spent.”

“I cannot express to you in words how enjoyable and exciting the conference was! You are not only a caring person, but a class act, and I hope other realized that that’s your true essence.”

“Fantastic, enlightening. I feel that I am ahead of the game and more aware of my potential outside medicine.”

“Thanks to you I now have a job with [Company Name] (whom I met at one of your conferences). I am doing remote neuromonitoring (I am a neurologist), and make enough money that I no longer need extra income. It is my ideal dream job and again I thank you.”

“Just wanted to let you know that I am officially the new Medical Director at Johnson & Johnson/Ethicon/Mentor. I start at the end of March. I certainly owe a large part of this to your course, your advice, and you personally.”

“Very inspiring and eye-opening. I wish I had known about all this many years ago”

“Very practical. I received more useful and practical information in two days than I found in 2 years of searching on my own.”
