Video: Sales Management Master Class Taught by Jewelry Professionals Begins Sept. 14

The class is being offered by Zoom.




Recognizing the need for independent jewelers to have a structured and measured plan for management, Brad Huisken and Jimmy DeGroot are offering their sales management master classes quarterly. The fall class begins Sept. 14.

Huisken states, “We’re making this class available regularly throughout the year because stores change, personnel changes are inevitable and there’s always a reason to continue training.” The class is a 12-week Zoom training for one hour a week for managers and owners, helping them create a management plan with proven best practices.

“Every class we teach, we learn new reasons why we should be continuing,” says DeGroot. “A jeweler just called and asked when our next class is because even though he had been through the course, he wants his brand new manager to experience it.”

DeGroot and Huisken found that students are retaining more through the 12-week program, allowing them to attend a class and then put that one thing into practice throughout the week The price for the class is $1,995 per store. Past attendees of the class include owner/operators who want to create a system of management to create a more scalable business as well as high-volume, multi-site stores looking to train their managers to bring out the best in their employees.

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.”
