Mind Your Business Development Series begins with “Costing & Pricing”
On Monday June 26 the St. Lucia Youth Business Trust, in conjunction with the Saint Lucia Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture, held the first session of the “Costing and Pricing” programme from its 2017 “Mind Your Business” Development Series. This practical hands-on programme targets small- and medium-sized enterprises seeking to gain critical business management skills and knowledge.
“Costing and Pricing” is run over six days and demonstrates the use of Costing Oversight, Cost Percentage Formulas, Pricing Decisions, Price Flexibility, Cost Consciousness and Market Prices, and equips participants with the skills necessary to properly price and cost their products and/or services.
“Costing and Pricing” is facilitated by Mr. Benjamin Menald, a private consultant with over 30 years’ extensive experience in financial planning analysis, strategic planning and costing and pricing, who continues to give back to the business community.
The Chamber is soon to offer the second programme for the year from the “Mind Your Business” series, i.e. Microsoft Excel – Intermediate to Advanced which commences July 25, 2017.
