JANUARY 2016 ISSUE 67 ISSN 2397-138X editorial

Great to see so many of you at Therapy Expo in Birmingham in November, thanks for coming to say hi and introducing yourselves to our new recruit, Sheena Mountford, who has fitted in superbly in the 6 short weeks that she’s been with us (at the time of writing this editorial).

As those of you who know me can probably imagine, there’s no small amount of ‘tech’ to get used to when working at Co-Kinetic and Sheena has absolutely hit the ground running! The most obvious outcome that you’ll already be able to see if you’ve visited the Co-Kinetic website, is that Sheena has freed me up to spend time developing more content partnerships. The first two of these went live in December and include a collaboration with the Fortius Clinic to make available through our site, the full 2-day, 155 video programme from the brilliant Fortius International Sports Injury Conference (FISIC) 2015 which took place in London in October. We look forward to forging similar agreements in 2016 where we can leverage the power of our content platform in collaborations that benefit everyone and most of all our subscribers. The second collaboration is with one of Australia’s leading soft tissue therapists, Stuart Hinds, who has agreed to let us publish several of his video masterclasses. In March we will begin our podcast collaboration with Chews Health, the producers of the excellent Physio Matters podcast. We have a load more partnerships in store for 2016 but if you know of anyone producing great quality, practically applicable content, whatever the format, please put them in touch with us, or let us know who they are so we can get in touch with them directly. In the meantime I wish you a very healthy and happy start to 2016 and look forward to sharing the year ahead with you.
