Looking for ways to unlock better growth in your company? Join us for the exclusive “Optimizing for Growth in 2024 – What 2023 has Taught Us” Roundtable at the Dalcy in Chicago’s Fulton Market Neighborhood! The session will cover a range of growth-oriented topics and provide a unique networking opportunity for participants while dining on award-winning food and drink.
As you know, 2023 continues to be a challenging year brought about by market conditions like none we have seen in decades. Companies across industries have been forced to account for high inflation, supply chain constraints, high interest rates, and ever-changing consumer behaviors. Many have seen their profitability erode and have recognized the need to strengthen capabilities that were often overlooked when the business environment was more favorable. As such, several fundamental business disciplines - like the ability to adjust pricing to account for increased costs while maintaining positive customer relationships - have become top of mind for company leaders who strive to maintain growth against a tough headwind.
Does that sound familiar?
This event is intended to give participants the opportunity to interact and discuss their unique company situation and address specific questions. Simon-Kucher, a recognized leader in pricing and sales strategy, will also offer its expertise and guidance based on thousands of projects for hundreds of clients across industries. The event will include a plenary session and roundtable discussions on the hot topics we're seeing in the market today (see detailed description below).
