About the event

Hosted by Optical Dispensers Australia and Presented by Tanya Verrenkamp (Regional Manager for George & Matilda)

Topic: Optical Dispensing - More than just a job

Optical Dispensers are crucial to the success of optometry and fulfill roles across many different areas within the industry. There is no single, straight line or dedicated path to follow when it comes to a career in optical dispensing, but your career journey can be plentiful when you find your direction. 

In this presentation, Tanya will discuss:

  • Reasons for joining the world of optics and where to start
  • Where to access more industry knowledge and develop your skills
  • Career avenues beyond the optometry practice
  • Tools you need to be successful

Tanya's job has given her opportunities galore. She worked in the Northern Territory, where she received her first promotion - Optical Dispenser to Store Manager. After weaving her way through the profession and continually growing her skills, Tanya is currently the Regional Manager for George and Matilda in Victoria, South Australia, and Western Australia.
