An MSE Detroit Professional Development Workshop:
Do you know how to SELL
your company’s VALUE?
presented by: Todd Snelgrove
What value does your company provide to its customers? Without the business case, explanation, tools and process to demonstrate why your company’s value is better than someone else’s lower price, how is procurement able to justify paying more? It’s your team’s job to demonstrate and document that value.
Join MSE Detroit on Feb. 19, 2019, at the MSU Management Education Center in Troy for a compelling three-hour workshop with Todd Snelgrove. Attendees will better understand how their companies can be more profitable creating, calculating, communicating, procuring and getting paid for the value they create. Todd is the former Global Vice President of Value with more than 15 years of experience in being the team leader on understanding, presenting, calculating, pricing and purchasing on Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) or Total Profit Added™ (TPA™) for SKF. Todd is now the founding partner at The Experts in Value, a consultancy that helps companies sell, market, price and negotiate based on measurable value.
This workshop is a great opportunity for sales managers and entire teams to learn the latest strategies and tactics needed to improve their company margins and profit performance first-hand.
