How much time do you spend thinking about pricing and price points? If you’re like most businesses, the answer is probably just a few hours a year. And that means that you’re losing a vital opportunity to increase profit.

In this session, you’ll learn how to develop a pricing strategy, including:

Learning about the multiple methods you can use to set a price point, and how to choose the right one for your business.

Developing a framework that allows you to structure your overall revenue model.

- Brighton Chamber

It’s easy to think of conflict as an inevitable and unalterable fact of workplace life. This is bad news – it costs employers £30bn a year according to ACAS and the main expense is the revolving door of staff. Workplace conflict fills management time, increases staff stress and is wholly detrimental to productivity.

The good news is that improving how you manage workplace conflict not only saves you time, money and stress but can turn around your productivity. Managed well, conflict can air those issues that must be resolved for people to work together and innovate.

You’ll learn:

What we understand by conflict and how to view it positively

How to spot opportunities for innovation and fresh perspectives

How the main conflict styles affect dynamics in the workplace and elsewhere

How to take a resolution-focused approach to managing conflict

You’ll come away with a better understanding of how to reduce t
