Dr Emma K Stokes (@ekstokes) is the President of the World Confederation of Physical Therapy. This is the first of two podcasts


1:00m - A fascinating career journey – from student at Trinity College Dublin to President of the World Confederation.

4:00m - “You have to be yourself but you have to understand yourself. Leadership is about bringing people on a journey. Make sure you understand how other people see, or feel about, that journey”

5:00m - The organisation you work in plays a big role too but you can make a difference from wherever you are. Students and early career physiotherapists are as important as the person on the top of the hierarchy

6:30m - The only constant is change (Emma’s nod to David Bowie but this was recorded before he died). Having a framework for adapting to change

7:50m - Practice change – applying the lessons to a typical health professional practice

10:00m - The role of the IFSPT – International Federation of Sports Physical Therapists – as leaders, advocates. A huge opportunity for leadership. Education, competency definition, congress organisation

12:00m - Physios as entrepreneurs. Social entrepreneurship – physiotherapists’ opportunities to contribute to society

13:30m - Emma’s experience on what makes a successful physiotherapy practice

15:00m - End of Part 1 – part two is scheduled for February 12th, 2016
