2020 Regional Workshop

Implementing a pricing strategy isn’t just about deciding what percentage to use to increase fees. The best pricing strategies are focused on the value proposition to the client. Managers and owners need to understand the value a particular service and the related client experience provide to a pet owner. Not many veterinary professionals clearly understand how to integrate value considerations into their pricing decisions. This workshop will identify components of the pricing decision framework and how to apply them to your practice.

Multiple team members from each practice are encouraged to attend.
