American Gem Society Offers an Online Peek Inside Its Conclave

The American Gem Society is offering a free peek inside spring’s Conclave 2013, posting two full-length videos of presentations from the annual event online for the next 60 days.

“Everyone knows it is an educational event, but not everyone is aware of the high quality of top-rated speakers who present at Conclave,” Ruth Batson, CEO of the American Gem Society, said in a statement.

The two videos from the April event in Phoenix, Ariz., available for viewing on the AGS website are the keynote by Jim Stengel, author of Grow: How Ideals Power Growth and Profit at the World’s Greatest Companies, and featured speaker Dave Mitchell’s presentation on “The Power of Understanding People.” 

“We want our industry colleagues to learn from the knowledge that is dispensed at Conclave, but at the same time, we are sensitive to the fact that this event is a benefit for our members,  Batson said.

Next year, AGS will celebrate its 80th anniversary at its Conclave in San Diego.
