The Maryland National Capital Guild Presents
Shane Decker, President of Ex-Sell-Ence


Shane DeckerLearn from nationally-known sales expert Shane Decker, who will discuss how to increase your sales, stay motivated, and take advantage of industry trends.

Decker has provided much sought-after sales training for more than 3,000 stores worldwide, and is a featured contributor to INSTORE Magazine, a major industry publication that targets the American jewelry store owner. He started in jewelry sales in Garden City, Kansas and sold more than 100, one-carat diamonds four years in a row!

This is an excellent educational opportunity for beginners and experienced salespeople alike.

Decker knows what kills sales and what makes them. He has the insights to arm salespeople with ways to talk to customers about jewelry. He reminds salespeople that diamonds, for example, are desired for their emotional voltage, and should not be thought of as commodities.
