Daryl Goldsmith FBDO
I qualified as a Dispensing Optician over 30 years ago now.
Originally working for a multiple, I moved to the independent sector, and eventually started my own business 25 years ago.
Recently acquiring other sites, I now have a total of 8. They are situated in very different areas; ranging from very poor to the more affluent; and from part-time to very busy full-time practices.
I joined Sight Care quite soon after starting my business, so have been a member for around 25 years. I am a great believer in Sight Care as an organisation, having benefitted from the services they have provided over the years.
Networking, sharing our experiences, successes and indeed failures, with each other is so important. With my experience as an owner of such varied practices, I have been able to help many members over the years; from talking at one of the many workshops, to calling people on an individual basis, helping them tackle business issues. More so now, than ever, we need to stick together, and Sight Care, I believe, is the perfect vehicle to do this.
