Is unabated inflation the new normal? For most sales teams, global inflationary trends have fundamentally changed the interactions they are having with customers. In this informative webinar, pricing experts from Simon-Kucher & Partners will share their research findings and observations on how companies are coping with and managing against inflationary pressures. John Elsey, CEO of Richardson, will then describe how salespeople can defend their value and position price increases with resistive customers. You’ll leave this session with practical ideas for how to adapt your sales organization and implement cultural change to defeat the effects of inflation and ensure success in a challenging market.
