Come to Pinehurst this spring!

   
Senior executives leading any company into success face common challenges. This new event lifts a day’s agenda to that common higher plane. You'll gain insights immediately relevant for running your company today and positioning it for tomorrow. 

 

This day-long experience is designed for the top leaders of both Management Companies & Business Partner firms. In a relaxed but professional environment we'll bring you wisdom specifically relevant to CEOs and senior executives, and opportunities to share a bit of downtime among your peers as well. We'll open and close with industry-related topics and gain leader-level insights of a more general nature in between.  

 

Our special keynote address is presented by self-professed pricing fanatic Casey Brown, whose mantra is "know your worth- then ask for it." Casey leads BOOST, an organization that helps companies across the US improve and sustain profits through better pricing.

11:00 am: Keynote Address "Higher Profits Through Better Pricing" - Casey Brown, BOOST. 

Discover your true pricing power! If you are excellent at what you do, you should be paid like you are excellent. Not like you are good. Not like you are average. But a lack of confidence in pricing power holds many businesses back from what's possible.
