GUEST SPEAKER – GERALD RATNER
Gerald Ratner took over the family jewellery chain in the mid 80’s, becoming one of Britain’s best known businessmen. He transformed it from 130 stores with sales of £13m to a public company with 2,500 stores and sales over £1.2bn. By 1990, Ratner’s was the world’s largest jewellery retailer with profits in excess of £120m.
Following a widely reported gaffe in which he compared his products to M&S prawn sandwiches, Gerald was forced to sell the business. Reduced to virtually nothing and shunned by banks and prospective employers, he eventually picked himself up and clawed his way back - first with a health club then with Gerald Online. The internet jewellery business is now the largest in the sector, perhaps presaging a return to the high street.
After turning around his fortunes, Gerald talks with typical candour and a great deal of humour about the roller coaster journey. He even raises a smile when he produces The Sun’s list of ‘50 biggest mistakes of all time’ - in which his is ranked top!
