DALLAS, Feb. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Vendavo, the leading provider of profit and margin optimization solutions, today kicked off Profit Summit 2015 with 73 percent of total registrants attending pre-conference workshops. Patrick D. Quirk, President and CEO of Vendavo, will initiate the first full day of the event as keynote speaker and introduce the CXO Visionary Board to Global 2000 leaders in attendance. The new initiative, targeted at C-level executives, will promote sharing of CXO-level agendas and foster greater understanding of best practices and challenges in margin and profit optimization.
"Profit Summit is an excellent opportunity for the most influential minds of the Global 2000 set to experience cutting-edge technology and share best practices," Quirk said. "It is a breeding ground to foster unique perspectives that push boundaries. This is why I am excited to announce the launch of our CXO Visionary Board, which will provide an ongoing, interactive forum for C-level executives to discuss global strategies that drive shareholder value."
Speakers include leaders from Global 2000 companies, such as Seagate, Molex, Medtronic and Emerson. Attendees will expand their understanding of pricing strategies and Vendavo solutions through three diverse tracks: Value Realization, Pricing Excellence and Technical Success. Sample sessions include:
- Taking Analytics from Reports to Insights to Actions
- How to Transition from Cost-Plus to Value-Based Pricing
- Pricing Leaders – Earning (and Keeping) a Seat at the Table
"Vendavo Profit Summit is a great opportunity to network with other Vendavo users to learn how they are using the tool, to gain insight on new Vendavo products that are coming to the market, and to share my Vendavo experience with people who are considering coming onboard with Vendavo," said Stephen M. Boyle, Director of Pricing at Emerson Industrial Automation, a regular attendee of Profit Summit.
Between sessions, attendees have the chance to interact with Vendavo consultants as they showcase cutting-edge solutions through real-time, full-scale and mobile demonstrations.
