What did your experience at Pernod Ricard UK teach you about revenue growth management?

Revenue growth management is a relatively new discipline in the fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) industry. The best outcomes are delivered when organisations fuse world class analytical tools with their own talented teams.

It’s hard to predict what the future will be like, but what do you anticipate the future of revenue management will be like?

It will continue to develop at speed as FMCG organisations battle with numerous headwinds. Revenue growth management can be one of the most powerful levers available to drive long term value growth in turbulent times.

Acumen is an agile, data led organisation, operating at the cutting edge of revenue growth management development in some of the world's top companies. The combination of that, blended with the human touch that comes from real life experience and knowledge, is what makes Acumen different.
