Cheers to 32 Years!


Initial Presentation April 1990

              Could 2022

This is our 30-2nd 12 months as KIZER & BENDER. 32 many years of Retail Adventures, there is by no means a dull second about right here! 

We surely by no means believed that initially time we walked onstage in Boston, Massachusetts to give our quite first “Retail Adventures in the Authentic World” keynote presentation that it would be the beginning of matters to appear. For that subject who knew that “professional speaker” was a actual task? Perfectly, Loaded did since it was a lifelong target for him, but it was all new to Georganne. We in no way imagined we’d close up below, but in this article we are. 

Thirty-two decades is a extensive time. Those number of times we have been courageous ample to watch the movie of that to start with seminar we see two folks who search form of familiar. Georganne has some Big 90s hair, Major shoulder pads, and substantial eyeglasses. Everything was massive back again then. And she’s carrying a red match, her trademark and the initial of many. Apart from the beard that he grew around 1993, Prosperous seems to be quite significantly the very same. We’re blessed that he is thriving considering that the two open up coronary heart surgical procedures (two in two times, he’s an overachiever) he experienced in December of 2019. For Prosperous the pandemic shutdown was a present mainly because it gave him the time to recuperate that he never would have taken on his have. 

We even now like this quote from former Craftrends columnists Linda Queen and Wanda Zeagler that reads: “Many of you never have companions. That’s high-quality if it operates for you. You obviously are not among the the ‘Shared Brain People’ who inhabit this Earth. We are and we are really cozy, every single of us, with our personal portions of our brains.” Some men and women who read that quote really don’t comprehend it, but we do, and that’s all that counts.

Partnership is a cool factor. Just in scenario you didn’t know, but have been curious, we are married. Happily. Just not to each individual other, thank you pretty considerably. We get that “Are you married?” issue a great deal however a 30-two yr business partnership is nothing at all to sneeze at. It is pretty amazing contemplating the Beatles only lasted eight yrs. 

We’re polar opposites. Our existing office is in a 170+ calendar year previous farmhouse which is loaded with temperament. (And a few spirits, but that is a different story for an additional day.) Rich’s work room is a inventive mess Georganne’s seems neat as lengthy as you do not open her desk drawers. Loaded is a Variety A personality who is usually imagining of our following massive shift Georganne is all about the aspects, figuring out how to make that “next massive thing” materialize. Rich’s mind in no way turns off Georganne flips hers off like a gentle switch the second she leaves the office. Wealthy reads enterprise guides and publications like a madman, Georganne reads every little thing apart from small business books. Loaded prefers to concentration on one point at a time Georganne is the queen of multi-tasking. 

We’ve performed the palace and we’ve played ridiculous spots we’d truly relatively ignore, and some of our preferred displays have been in the small back again rooms of shops. The trials and tribulations of our 32 yrs of existence on the highway are priceless, and we honestly wouldn’t modify a one detail. We are privileged to work in so quite a few industries. Our consumers include big fellas like IBM, NCR, and SEARS, as well as intensively imaginative independents. And with funeral administrators, superb individuals who care for their clients in methods that go far beyond what is envisioned. 

Thank you for becoming a member of us on our continuing journey! We are grateful to absolutely everyone who has assisted us along the way, and we are thankful to all the people today who call us every day to share their tales or request for guidance. Our door is constantly open!
