    Pricing is the most important profit driver a company has, but getting pricing right isn’t as simple as it may seem! 

    For this event, we have partnered with Janene Liston, who will share with us interesting pricing tales, focusing on what is critical when it comes to pricing, and will look into more detail at:

    • the impact of pricing on profit

    • what’s most important to focus on and why

    • the aspect of pricing that many companies underestimate 

    About the speaker

    Janene Liston is an international pricing expert for small and medium sized businesses across many industries, who has lived in Switzerland for nearly 20 years, working for international corporations in product marketing and pricing. She is a Certified Pricing Professional, a public speaking champion and an entrepreneur. 

      You don't have to be a pricing expert to enjoy Janene's presentation, it is meant to be a general education event.

      Do not miss the most significant event of the year. Influential speakers will debate the topic of negotiation. Never an 'old' topic, negotiation is often regarded as 'a dance with your customer or supplier'. If one party knows the steps and the other doesn't, it's difficult to reach an effective agreement.

      During the even, topics such as how to plan before a negotiation, how to ask effective questions, how to 'read' the other's behaviour and how to bargain for the best deal possible will be explored.

      Like it or not, we negotiate every day, with our partners, with our children, with our bosses and, even with ourselves. How do you mange your emotions during a negotiation process? Is negotiation style different for men and women? How do you control the other party and balance the power?

      At the end of the evening you'll be able to have enough tools in your hand to conduct an effective negotiation. You will be inspired and empowered! 

        Our distinguished panelists:

        Panel moderator: Nicole Pitter Patterson, VP Partnership, OWIT Lake Geneva

        • 18:30 - 19:30 - Registration & welcome drinks
