Bill Warren is a successful jewelry store owner, professional motivational/marketing speaker and columnist for Instore Magazine, Southern Jewelry News, Mid America Jewelry News and Diamond Pulse Magazine.
Warren has been involved in the jewelry business in one form or another almost since birth. His great, great grandfather discovered the emeralds in what was later to become the famous Hiddenite Emerald Mines.
Starting out as an amateur rock hound as a kid, Warren went on to become a gem cutter, goldsmith, watch repairman, registered gemologist appraiser as well as managing jewelry stores and later opening his own jewelry store, The Gold Mine Fine Jewelry & Gifts, Inc. in the mountains of western NC.
Through experiences in his own store, Warren teaches other retailers how to grow their business by systemizing their approach and using maverick marketing techniques. His delivery is humorous, folksy and exciting. Sometimes he brings a banjo or guitar to play and help "drive a point home."
Bill is married to his wife of many years, Angie who also works in their family business. They have one son, Dillon.
Drawing upon his experiences as a retail jeweler, lay minister/deacon and entertainer, Bill will keep your audience entertained as well as teaching them techniques they can use to immediately increase traffic and profits in their store.
