BIG NEWS for those of you coming to the inaugural SMART Show Dallas. Our show keynote speaker — Scott Ginsberg, aka “The Nametag Guy” — is signed, sealed and about to be delivered to an audience of jewelers this September.

(Quickly, for the uninitiated: Being held September 8-10, 2012 at The Gaylord Texan Resort in Grapevine, TX, the SMART Show Dallas is the first show ever to have a 100 percent holiday-oriented education program. The promise: smart ideas and great shopping just in time for the most important season of the year.]

Ginsberg will be at the show Saturday and Sunday, handling a keynote speech, a panel interview session, and also serving double-duty as a roving reporter/on-camera host for our video crew.

If Scott’s name doesn’t immediately ring a bell, he’s the guy who has been wearing a nametag 24/7 for more than 10 years. Sounds like a huge gimmick, and it is. But the guy behind the gimmick is an exciting, inspirational speaker who we think will have a real impact on you. Some of you caught Scott at The SMART Show Chicago in 2011, where he got a terrific reaction from jewelers who attended. (See highlights here.)

Scott’s forte is approachability, an important skill for retailers. He manages to make you laugh (a lot), while still challenging you to stand out and be different. It’s a potent combination. This year, we’re looking forward to seeing how Scott translates his theories to a holiday environment.

Anyway, Scott is just one more smart reason to come to the SMART Show Dallas. Retailers, go here to reserve your spot at the show!

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
