Concord, MA (PRWEB) October 18, 2007
Dr. Reed Holden, founder of Holden Advisors, kicks-off the Professional Pricing Society's 18th Annual Pricing Conference with a key message from his new book, Pricing with Confidence: Ten Ways to Stop Leaving Money on the Table. The book, co-authored by Reed Holden and Mark Burton, offers a break-through approach to making pricing and go-to-market decisions based on ten simple rules. Drawing on the Author's extensive experience, Pricing with Confidence provides practical and actionable advice for executives wrestling with fierce competition and profit improvement goals. Pricing with Confidence is a roadmap for senior leadership in sales, marketing, finance and the pricing to work together to outperform competition.
"Reed Holden is a master of pricing and we are pleased to have him keynote our Annual Fall Conference on October 26th," said Eric Mitchell, President of Professional Pricing Society. "One of the top priorities of the Pricing Society is to help pricing managers engage with their executives for important pricing decisions. This is the first book that addresses executives' needs when making critical decisions regarding their profit goals. It closes the gap from tactical work a pricer performs to big picture decision-making that companies need to make. It couldn't have come at a better time."
"We believe that pricing is the management discipline that most impacts every function of an organization," said author Reed Holden. "Issues confronted by sales, marketing, finance, research, and every level of leadership must attend to pricing in order to compete. Pricing with Confidence is a roadmap to delivering value and profits on a foundation of sound pricing."
Pricing with Confidence is publishing by John Wiley & Sons February 2008. To learn more about the book, order a copy, and view upcoming seminars see: http://www.pricingwithconfidencebook.com.
