Guest Speaker: Gerald Ratner
Gerald Ratner is a British household name. He took over his family’s jewellery business in the mid 80s which had at that time 130 stores. By 1990 it had 2,500 stores and annual sales of £1.2 billion with profits in excess of £120 million.
However, following the infamous gaffe in which he described some of the products sold in the stores as ‘total crap’, he was forced to sell the business and lost almost everything. Gerald has since made a successful comeback and will talk with candour and humour about his roller-coaster ride and how he picked himself up after ‘that gaffe’.
