PRE-FORUM WORKSHOPS

We are working on the upcoming programme. If you would like to participate as a Speaker, Sponsor or Delegate please contact Mariana Flores at mariana.flores@pricingplatform.eu

1. Commercial Excellence – A War Won by Unlocking Value With your Partners

20Nov13.00-15.30

  • Part 1 (60min): Commercial Excellence Maturity: A Structure and a Self-assessment for Your Next Steps toward Improved Profitability

Commercial Excellence is achieved through relentless pursuit across several business capabilities. The two most critical areas for maximizing profitable performance are pricing and sales, because they must work hand in hand to truly unlock the value of your business model.  In this workshop, we’ll discuss a commercial excellence maturity model that can help you evaluate your current status, and then you will take a self-assessment that will help identify next steps that you can take to improve your commercial performance and profitability.  We’ll examine how the steps you have identified on your individual path to commercial excellence compare with the broader group by discussing previous survey results, and what fellow workshop attendees see as challenges. Together we’ll help convert those challenges to opportunities – priorities for action when you are back at the office and working with your business partners to unlock value.

  • Part 2 (75-90min): Price War: What is it Good For? (Absolutely Nothing…)

Welcome to the Thunderdome: a price war game, where you’ll be on a team making decisions simulating how business competitors meet in the market – and in this game, the key product differentiation is price. As the game progresses, you’ll gain access in each successive round to new information and guidance to make your pricing decisions.  The team that makes the most money at the end of all the rounds wins the game, but all teams win by sharing the pricing execution insights they’ve gained after the game concludes.

2: Designing an Intelligent Approach to Pricing through Systems, Science, and Organizational Habits

20Nov13.00-15.30

In working with Fortune 50 companies to $100M organizations, we have seen that very few have intentionally designed the pricing habits within their organizations. In this workshop, we will help you to assess how your current pricing habits align to your organization’s strategic intentions. Using this assessment, we will then consider various approaches to how you can evolve your pricing systems with segmentation-based optimization, real-time price calculation, and artificial intelligence. We will then give you a pragmatic way to get started with data science and help you to consider how to calm the concerns of detractors skeptical of a scientific approach.

What They’ll Learn:

• How multi-billion dollar organizations have transformed their approach to pricing and what they have gained by doing so
• How to assess the alignment of the pricing habits and systems you have today
• How to evaluate the various segmentation models you can use to predict buyer willingness to pay
• How to address the common concerns of skeptics and status quo proponents


Valerie Howard & Justin Silver, PhD () PROS, Inc

3: Dynamic pricing – Learn the steps of its implementation, latest tools and management

20Nov16.00-18.30

• Learn the process, implementation and results
• Analysis of the software solutions & new technology tools when implementing dynamic pricing
• Understand how to embed dynamic pricing into your current pricing strategy – pros and cons


TBD () -

4: Rapid Conjoint Analysis

20Nov16.00-18.30

  • In this workshop we will not only design and distribute a live conjoint survey in the UK, but also analyse the survey’s results all within our 2.5 hour workshop to demonstrate why top global brands, market research agencies and management consultancies refer to EPIC Conjoint as their ‘rapid’ conjoint partner for capturing actionable customer insights in near real-time
  • Specifically, we will use the survey’s results to determine not only the optimal features and price elasticity of the product, but also its optimal price point
  • We will then use our simulator to estimate volume and revenue shares of the products tested plus gauge the shares of new product combos

WHAT ATTENDEES SAY ABOUT EPP GLOBAL PRICING FORUM

Borealis AG

Paolo De Angeli, Pricing Group Expert at Borealis AG

I enjoyed very much this year’s EPP Conference, particularly for the focus on digitalisation and future trends. The conference gave the possibility to the pricing community to compare ideas and prepare some initial answers to our future challenges

Sky

Olivier Nocher , Former Head of Pricing and Commercial Strategy at Sky

“I have been attending the EPP European & Global Pricing Forums for years now and they have been consistently getting better and better. The 13th edition didn’t disappoint: there was a true breadth of quality presentations from amazing speakers, so much so that the compromises you have to accept when choosing between the B2B, B2C or Retail streams have become really painful. Big thank you to the organisation team!”

Dell EMC

Marcel Körner, Global Pricing Director at Dell EMC

“It was a great event and well worth joining. I enjoyed the discussions and interaction during my presentation on Dell’s pricing journey and the panel on Artificial Intelligence”

Frank Frohmann

Frank Frohmann, Senior Business Coach ; author of the book “Digitales Pricing” at Evonik

“My speech on “Digital Revenue and Price models” was another personal highlight for me in a long cooperation with the EPP. It started in 2007 and includes several presentations and workshops. Networking with pricing experts and managers is such a great opportunity to learn and grow. The EPP business model deserves my full respect. Thanks to a great audience and the EPP-team”

Price Edge

Micael Ehn, PhD, Head of Data Science at Price Edge

“Two great days spent at the Global Pricing Forum. 50% of presentations mentioned AI/ML, for vendors that number was 75%. Lots of hype of course, but great to see AI in pricing really catching on”

Proximus

Philippe Vandevoorde, Product and Pricing Manager at Proximus

Great organisation to share experiences, create contacts and refresh your ideas & thought about the pricing activities and the evolution’s in the business.  Organisation was very professional.

Continental

Imane Adoua, Pricing Manager PLT at Continental

It was my first participation as a speaker and attendee in the event. I was so impressed of the high level of the speakers, such experienced and smart people and also of the performance of the organizers and their professionalism. For the upcoming years I will probably make the EPP event as THE event to meet pricing experts

Goodyear Dunlop Tires Operations

Ebrahim Elebiary , Pricing Manager Europe South at Goodyear Dunlop Tires Operations

Excellent organization and list of attendees. Have the chance to network with top pricing leaders across industries is very rewarding. During the breakout sessions, there was experience sharing, which inspires action and reapplication of best practices.

Brakes Group

Charlie Burton, Strategic Merchandising & Pricing Director at Brakes Group

An informative and interesting event.

Volkswagen

Dogus Karaca, Senior Pricing manager at Volkswagen

It was a great opportunity for me to take part in the 13th EPP Global Pricing Forum, was one of the best forums that I have participated in a long time. The forum covered a lot of information, in concise pieces that were easy to absorb. Clear structure, interactive and very effective. But it wasn’t just about the new knowledge. The main benefits came not only from participating actively in the workshops,  roundtable discussions,  panels and break-out sessions, but also from interacting with other pricing professionals who have a broad and deep knowledge in pricing.  The EPP Team has put a lot of thought and expertise into designing the agenda and content. Thanks so much for doing a great job!

In a nutshell, when it comes to pricing, the European Pricing Platform is definitely one of the best places where you can find answers to all of your questions to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow.  I would highly recommend the upcoming EPP events to those working within or with an interest in the field of pricing and looking to grow both personally and professionally.

10 tips for a more successful price optimization project

A price optimization project is a major undertaking for any company. There are often multiple internal stakeholders, and it is likely to affect a wide range of internal systems and processes, from basic product management systems to cost and profit allocation and customer relationship programs.
