What Can a Sports Host, Mountaineer & Motivational Speaker Teach Pharmacies?

We know it sounds like the start to a bad joke, but you'd be surprised what these unlikely guests have to offer your pharmacy!

It sounds like the start to a bad joke. “A mountaineer, a sports host and a motivational speaker walk into a bar…”

Luckily, this isn’t that kind of blog post.

But the question remains, what do a motivational speaker, a mountaineer and a sports host have to do with pharmacy? Absolutely nothing, right?

We think there might just be some common ground, and some valuable lessons to be learned about grit, success, motivation and more.

On October 14th, 2021 RMS is bringing together some amazing speakers to inspire you for the next chapter in your pharmacy business. It’s all part of our continued efforts to help pharmacies grow profits and find a competitive edge through our virtual educational series, CLIMB.  (If this is the first time you’re hearing about CLIMB, it stands for Care, Lead, Innovate, Motivate and Balance. These tenets serve as the foundation for everything you’ll learn during CLIMB. You’ll discover how using these values every day can elevate your pharmacy business.)

Our October broadcast is extra special as we celebrate a full year of CLIMB episodes.

Here’s what you need to know about our 1st Annual CLIMBiversary special.

Our cast of characters may be out of the ordinary, but that’s exactly what makes this CLIMB so extraordinary.  


Is this name ringing a bell? You may have heard of Will Bowen and the Complaint Free Movement he founded. In October, Will brings his valuable message to pharmacy teams. Will Bowen will talk about why complaints happen, how to deal with them, and how pharmacies can improve efficiency, communication and profits by approaching business and life in a complaint free environment. Will’s complaint free practice has been shared by Oprah, Dr. Oz, The Today Show, and many more. This is a fun, motivational session with Q&A.


Perhaps another familiar name to sports fans across the country. Colin Cowherd is the host of The Herd with Colin Cowherd and the author of two bestselling books. Think a pharmacy can’t have anything in common with an independent pharmacy? Colin’s methods for finding success in a competitive industry and unique approach to leadership might just change your mind. And we might find a couple of minutes to ask him about his NFL predictions for the season.


Who better to teach us how to CLIMB than someone who’s climbed, and I mean really climbed, for real? Dr. Emily Johnston is a practicing physician and mountaineer. She’s summited the tallest peaks on almost every continent, including Mt. Everest where she’s also a certified guide. Her inspiring story and perseverance in two incredibly difficult careers can teach us all a thing or two about grit, overcoming obstacles, and finding balance in our lives.

Everyone is welcome at CLIMB!

CLIMB is for every pharmacy, big or small. One location or 100. Owners and managers. Pharmacists and technicians. There’s something for everyone at CLIMB.

CLIMB is not about point-of-sale. Really.

You don’t need to be an RMS customer or even in the market for a point-of-sale system to benefit from CLIMB. While we certainly think pharmacy point-of-sale is awesome, we know it takes so much more than technology to run a successful pharmacy business. At RMS, we’re passionate about helping pharmacies with every facet of their business. A passion that resides at the heart of CLIMB.  Think of CLIMB as our way of giving back to an industry that’s at the core of our 23 years of successful business.
