About the Programme
High inflation, the cost-of-living crisis and unreliable supply chains are all pushing Lancashire businesses into ‘survival mode’.
Price optimisation is most easily implemented in high inflation and volatile environments, and it is more than likely that businesses will be increasing their prices so learning how to do so confidently, efficiently and effectively couldn’t be more important.
Pricing is the third business skill; first, create a great product, second sell that product brilliantly, and third price it superbly.
This programme is fully-funded and eligible for small and medium-sized (SME) businesses based in Lancashire.

This is the time to take stock and reconnect with the different elements in your business that can be influenced and controlled. Knowing your organisation, your staff and your customers inside and out could make all the difference.
Pricing is an essential business skill – so why are so many of us afraid to increase our prices?
We are entering a new normal (yes, another one). So, if you’re in business, there is no shying away from it. It’s more than likely that you’ll soon be increasing cost and you need to learn how to confidently, efficiently and effectively do that.
How a Lancashire-based physiotherapy company has boosted business by raising prices with help from an online LUMS programme
“It became suddenly clear to me that our strategy – to price ourselves extremely competitively – was not serving our business and might even be devaluing it. I knew there and then that if we wanted the business to grow, we had to charge more".
"Our long-standing relationship with SMEs means we get to hear first-hand the pressing issues that are most affecting firms, and now most businesses are back operating ‘as normal’, some are facing the challenges of changing consumer demands, issues with supply and rising costs – all of which can present barriers for businesses hungry for growth.” Alex Errington, Senior Project Manager
Pricing with Purpose workshops are designed to help Lancashire based SMEs to take the time out of their business to work on the business and to build a business that focusses on both profit and purpose. Two days of delivery enables high business impact and will enable you to take your business to the next level. Innovate, develop & grow.
