On Wednesday, March 8th, Hogg, Shain & Scheck hosted another informative Managing for Growth series. The first series of 2017 focused on transforming profits through improved pricing strategies.

The conference room at The Westin Prince was full of engaged listeners as Paul Hunt, President of Pricing Solutions, delivered a useful and informative talk about the issues business owners face.

Paul Hunt discussed the different ways a business can structure pricing to keep costs low and profits high, all while maintaining customer and client satisfaction. “Customers don’t always want the best price, they want the best value.

Paul gave an insightful look at different pricing strategies. He encourages every business owner to find their “lakefront property”. A “lakefront property” in business terms is an object or service that can be leveraged because of its value. A busy Saturday for sales, versus a slower weekday, means Saturday is the “lakefront property”, and can sustain a fair price increase.

The Managing for Growth Series will be back in June. Strategist Robert Murray will be the guest speaker on June 6, to discuss leadership and getting your team members on board with your vision and plan. Tickets are available now, register here for their June seminar.

Regarding Brian McNeil-Smith, “Strategy is only limited to imagination”.

At 7pm, the main event began with a presentation from Procter and Gamble, LinkedIn and Green Lotus. What matters the most when you are a brand is to tell your brand a story and have a BIG Idea. What is a BIG idea? For Maria Shibaeva, Sr. Assistant Brand Manager at Procter and Gamble it has to be true in your business and also should be :
