The MASTER of reinvention.
From inheriting a struggling chain of jewellery stores, Gerald Ratner turned the family business into a prominent £1BM global jewellery empire within less than a decade before it all came crashing down.
From the dizzy heights of success, Gerald went on to become the poster boy for FAILURE all because of an ill-fated joke and what can only be described as a media witch hunt after his infamous speech at the Royal Albert Hall.
His story is powerful. What happened to Gerald could happen to any of us HOWEVER a situation only has the meaning that we choose to attach to it and hearing how he has overcome adversity and turned his pain into power is truly inspirational.
