Knock Out Strategies for Working with Price Conscious Customers

Wednesday, July 13, 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm ET (Note: webinar will be recorded*)

Webinar Cost: $35 (includes recording)

Knock Out Strategies for Working with Price Conscious Customers

Presented by our NACE National Board Members Linwood Campbell, CPCE and Lisa Hopkins, CPCE, CMP!

 

Getting knocked out by the price conscious customer and your competition? Well it is time to step into the ring and learn from these pros how to score the knock out punch, win that price conscious customer and garner clients for life. Learn how to go all 12 rounds for your customer regardless of their budget by being strategic in your preparation. To a degree, it’s about the integrity of your product and the perception you portray with all customers – those who are on a tight budget, and those who aren’t. In the end it’s not about  fighting the customer, but rather fighting the image that doing events on a budget doesn’t have to be a battle at all if you know what you are doing, and are prepared to “go the distance.”

 

All attendees will receive one contact hour towards their initial or recertification of the Certified Professional Catering Executive (CPCE) Designation.  For more information, visit the CPCE page.

 

*A recording of this webinar will be available!  Sign up today and receive the recording the day after the webinar.
