Dr Dave's Blog & Podcast Homepage

Est 2009
All of my Podcasts and blogs are
here each week.

Each week I publish the Freewheelin' video Q&A show and each month an episode of Blunt Dissection Podcast. I also publish articles randomly from time to time. 

In order to submit a question to freewheelin' please record a video and following the format closely:

1. State who you are and where you are from.
2. Ask your question as concisely as possible, it must be under 30 seconds long.

3. Upload your video using this form.


We do not guarantee to answer all questions, especially ones that have been answered previously.

Journaling is a discipline that I’ve only come to in the past two years but it’s one that I find remarkably powerful- both for the immediate benefits, but also the downstream effects. Many people raise a curious eyebrow when I get all excited about how much value it ha...

Today’s guest is Dr Diederik Gelderman Australian veterinary business legend, former veterinary hospital owner, current Australian Veterinary business Association (AVBA) President and creator of the Turbo Charge Your Veterinary Practice series of business development p...

One of my blog readers, Chris (who is a Company Commander on active duty in the U.S. Marine Corps), wrote to me after reading an earlier post called "Leadership - A definition that works well for me”. In that blog I challenged readers as to what the...

I just got finished up with my first interview for a new podcast I’m hosting (due later this month) with Dr Diederik Gelderman (http://www.turbochargeyourpractice.com/). We had a great, wide ranging chat about his very successful and unusual career.

Nothing was o...

Watching someone light up with happiness and amazement when they accomplish something new is one of the coolest things to witness. And it’s twice as enriching when you have been part of the journey towards the outcome.

I’ve been taking Marcia, my daughter, swimming...

Leadership is one of those topics with an almost bottomless pit of resources describing it. Despite this, a useful working definition can sometimes feel a little hard to pin down in practical terms. This morning, as I was doing my daily journaling exercise to start the...

Recruitment interviews are a minefield and most people working in vet clinics have never received any useful training in how to get them right. A startlingly crazy situation given that the cost of poor recruit can be as much as four times the salary you intend to pay a...

I recently moved back to the UK from Australia and let’s say the timing could have been better from a seasonal perspective. Southern hemisphere winter + northern hemisphere winter = very cold toes for a long time. So a short break in the Catalan sunshine was just what...

Christmas is over and I hope you’ve broken bread with your loved ones, Santa was kind and you’ve been able to recharge your batteries with a few days away from the coalface.

No doubt there will be a few days of bedlam now as we enter the Intestinal Disease Zone (IDZ), t...

1. A life less formal breaks down barriers.

Aussies tend to take themselves a little bit less seriously than us Brits. ‘Mate-ship’ is a central theme of life in Australia and it certainly makes life in practice a lot of fun. There’s a real sense that we all ‘have each...
