Confex speaker Gerald Ratner made a spectacular gaffe by calling his jewellery products ‘total crap’, this led directly to the collapse of his family’s £1.2bn business.
But years later unsuspecting consumers are still being missold, as a recent protest against Black Friday emphasised with irony. Nevertheless, one person's rubbish is another person's gold, underlined by the success of eBay.
As a risk taking businessman and part time comedian, Ratner will know more than most about handling corporate crises. I look forward to hearing Ratner speak entertainingly of his business highs and lows during his Confex keynote on 18 March.
