A message from David Brown 

What a week we had!
The participation, commitment and post conference feedback from delegates made it a wonderfully rewarding and fulfilling experience for me personally and for the rest of our team. Many of the delegates told us it was the ‘best conference’ they had ever attended and believe me, after the huge amount of time and effort that went into the event, those comments made it all worthwhile.

DSCF2575___website.JPGThe results of the delegate surveys and many testimonials provided will be available within the next week.  In the interim though, we know from feedback received that all of the presenters did an amazing job of delivering their respective topics and that the wide variety of strategies  and ideas were both extremely relevant and timely.  

Janice Mack did an outstanding job of giving you dozens of proven strategies for developing a winning sales team and helping you significantly increase your Diamond business.  Thank you Janice.

Lynn Baldwin has won many friends 'downunder' and his easy, open and refreshing style was a huge hit with the Australian and New Zealand delegates.  I saw many of you come away with pages of notes following Lynn's sessions and comments like "I've really taken my eye off the ball..." were common.  Nice work Lynn.

Thanks also to John Whitaker for his insightful and enthusiastic presentation on how to develop your brand and point of difference.  Along with fellow panelist and retailer, John Jurgs, we also learned some valuable 'buying tips'.  Thanks to you both. 

And who could forget our opening speaker, Matthew Stuller.  Many of you were captivated by his easy style, his vision for the independent Jeweller and his leadership wisdom.  I for one didn't want this presentation to end.


Our mantra for the conference was “What have you done today to make you feel proud” – and we sincerely hope delegates have all identified those high payoff goals and have already begun implement some of the Action Steps. That would certainly make us all feel “Proud”. Click here to download the templated Action Plan to continue your planning.


So “Step out of the Ordinary” and remember “That to Question, is to Grow”.
