JBN Congress Inspires Jewellers to sell more

6 June 2018

The thriving Jet Business Network group established in 2005 hosted its 10th annual congress yesterday. Over 60 delegates attended the congress to hear from 5 expert speakers on how to sell more jewellery.

JBN members were joined by NAJ members and other key industry players from retailers to suppliers. The overall satisfaction exit poll score was 8.4, proving the congress to be a success.

Mark Smith of T H March commented: "Always a brilliantly organised day and excellent networking opportunities the night before. The social media insight was especially informative, with lots to take away and act on"

Peter Wong of Wongs Jewellers commented: “Congress never fails to inspire me, and I always come away with at least one vital piece of information I will use in my business.”

Mark Duggal of M G Welch Jewellers: “I always attend the congress every year, and what I look for at each congress is to take one nugget of information away with me, and this year it’s the advice from speaker Ruth Duggal from her session, The Importance of Video in Today's World of Retail and E-tail”.

JBN Facilitator Michael Donaldson commented: “The JBN is a remarkable community of jewellers who share so much more than their knowledge experience and expertise - they are not only a pleasure to work with but a pleasure to know”.

One delegate shared with the audience the fact that he joined the JBN shortly after last year’s congress and quickly saved £10,000 in renegotiating a supplier agreement based on the contents of a JBN member survey.
