Today we welcome extraordinary pricing strategist Katie Wei, Director of Pricing Strategy at Cloudinary. Starting from her early days in accounting and software, Katie reveals her journey into the intricate world of pricing strategy and her two-decade-strong passion for the field. She gives us a candid look into the art of handling pricing objections, her unique approach to sales management training, and a teaser of her upcoming keynote address at the Professional Pricing Society conference.

We tackle the significance of pricing in leadership and its role in shaping company dynamics. Katie provides insight into the intricacies of navigating senior leadership, showcasing pricing as a powerful, often underestimated, tool for addressing complex business issues like customer retention. We delve into the RACI matrix for managing multifaceted projects and how to demonstrate the strategic value of pricing expertise beyond just crunching numbers. Katie shares the importance of leveraging data and customer feedback, using tools like 'dollarization' to help customers see the tangible value of products and services. We encourage listeners to reevaluate their current pricing strategies and better capture the value they deliver.
