‘Nametag Guy’ To Keynote SMART Show Dallas

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!

It’s Going to Set Us Up Very Nicely for Retirement

You’ve worked hard all your life. And if you’re like most jewelers contemplating retirement, you’re hoping that your going-out-of-business sale will add to your nest egg — with minimal complications. That’s exactly what Doug and Jacki Friedrich, fourth-generation owners of Friedrich Jewelers Inc., of Vernon, Conn., experienced when they selected Wilkerson to run their sale. “Jewelers who are contemplating a sale should go with Wilkerson because of their experience,” says Doug. And with financial goals “exceeding expectations,” the couple can now focus on enjoying the next chapter of their lives. “It’s going to set us up very nicely for retirement,” says Jacki. “The money’s coming in and we have no complaints. It’s been wonderful.”
