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!

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.”
