Book Gerald Ratner

Keynote Speaker

Gerald Ratner is available to book for your event – we work in direct association with Gerald Ratner’s representative as a booking agent for Gerald Ratner. Gerald Ratner is a British businessman who was formerly chief executive of jewellery company Ratners Group. Gerald Ratner is no stranger to public speaking, in fact it has shaped a large part of his experience in business and, following up from his book, ‘The Rise and Fall…and Rise Again’, he has carved himself out as a successful after dinner speaker for hire at events discussing the highs and lows of the corporate world.

Gerald Ratner joined his family business in 1966, and on this basis, he built up an extremely successful chain of jewellers during the 1980s, of which he was chief executive. Following a high profile mistake in which he described some of the products sold in the stores in a negative way, he was forced to sell the business. In 2003, Gerald Ratner launched a new venture, and the online business is already the largest of its kind in Britain.

After climbing back up the business ladder, Gerald Ratner talks with an open frankness about the rollercoaster journey of his professional career, and discusses the lessons it has taught him to work in the corporate world. Gerald’s book, entitled ‘Gerald Ratner: The Rise and Fall… and Rise Again’ was widely successful and was serialised in the Sunday Times.
