Gerald Ratner is a British businessman and motivational speaker. He was formerly chief executive of the major British jewellery company Ratners Group. He achieved notoriety after making a speech in which he jokingly denigrated two of the company’s products, which caused the company’s near collapse (the so-called “Ratner effect”).
Today, Ratner’s speech is still famous in the corporate world as an example of the value of branding and image over quality. Such gaffes are now sometimes called ‘doing a Ratner.’
Through sheer grit and against overwhelming odds- Ratner has risen back to success in the online jewellery business and as a motivational speaker.
