Jewelers Educational Conference & Show introduces new faces, new topics and renewed enthusiasm for being a jeweler

For more than a decade the Jewelers Educational Conference & Show (JEC) has introduced Mid-America jewelers to an outstanding keynote speaker who was new to the industry, but well known in other areas of the business world.  The 2012 Conference, which is being held in Overland Park, KS on March 16-18, continues that tradition by inviting Louie Gravance to open the conference and also present one of the three featured seminars.  Gravance, a founding facilitator and program designer for the Walt Disney University’s Professional Development Program, will open the conference by sharing many of the “secrets” that he has introduced to management teams at Disney, Bank of America, Mutual of Omaha, ING Financial and BMW.  His topic is, “It’s Not What You Are Willing to Do – It Is What You Are Willing to Be!”
