GN Diamond Presents: Getting Ready for Xmas — How to Close Sales Quicker

“Jewelers are still at high risk even though their operations are temporarily shut down or changed,” said Larry Spicer, Jewelers Mutual vice president of Loss Prevention and Risk Management Services. “This is a great opportunity to brush up on best practices.”

Each of the 10 courses offered focuses on a different area. Two of the most popular are Selling with Security, which provides education on preventing theft and how to stay safe during a robbery, and Danger on the Road, which is tailored to traveling salespeople. There’s also a course on cybersecurity that is beneficial to anyone working from home or engaging in e-commerce.

More than 1,000 businesses use JM University as part of their annual training and new hire orientation. Managers can assign specific courses to staff and monitor their progress. Many of the courses have built-in quiz modules to reinforce the learning and provide a feedback loop if more attention is needed on a topic.

“Offering complimentary access to our resources is the right thing to do,” Spicer said. “For the past month we’ve focused on extending services to our policyholders, but we also remain dedicated to supporting the entire jewelry industry as we navigate this uncertain time. Together, we’ll get through this.”

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
