(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK – Kevin Reilly, Platinum Guild International’s vice president, consistently logs more than 100,000 air miles each year as he criss-crosses the country conducting sales trainings. 2020, however, will be a drastically different story. This year, due to the global pandemic, the organization has rewritten the platinum training playbook and is now offering sessions to retailers across the country from the safety of their own homes.
Available immediately, the bespoke training sessions will be created based on each individual retailer’s needs. Topics will range from basic platinum product knowledge to the importance of platinum crowns to consumer product activation and transforming the customer experience. PGI-USA will even offer a segment geared specifically toward bench jewelers, with the training focusing on quality assurance and the organization’s proprietary “Benchmarks for Bench Jewelers.”

The format will generally adhere to a 30-minute interactive tutorial followed by a 15-minute Q&A period, although sessions will be catered to fit specific requirements. The Zoom-based sessions can accommodate as many participants as needed. After the trainings, attendees can continue their learning via PlatinumLearning.com for additional information.

“During these unprecedented times, we want to support retailers in any way we can,” said Kevin Reilly, PGI-USA’s vice president. “We hope by adapting our training programs to a virtual learning experience, we can continue to offer an educational series that can benefit associates by increasing their platinum knowledge, which in turn can be used for in-store or at-home customer assistance.”

Jenny Luker, PGI-USA’s president, said, “We are here to partner with retailers to make the most of these challenging times. We know the way we may service or sell to customers may change, but the knowledge and education associates possess will always be of key importance.”

She continued, “Making time for trainings now will yield future sales and successes, no matter how business will be conducted in the future.”

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
