There are many reasons to hire a consultant. Here are some of the primary reasons
why your company should hire Diamond Dahlia.
To hire expertise in the jewelry business
Julie Arvidson, president of Diamond Dahlia, has 34 years in the jewelry business.
With expertise in merchandising, marketing, and business strategy, she has held
executive positions with three U.S. companies, from East coast to West coast,
helping them to grow their businesses smartly. Her integrity, energy, drive
to achieve results, and above all, her passion for the jewelry business make
her the preferred choice.
To identify problems and challenges
Often problems and challenges are more apparent to an experienced outside
consultant. Julie Arvidson has the ability to identify problems quickly and
make recommendations on how to work through them, and who best to take on
the different aspects of a plan to solve problems.
To save money
Sometimes a consultant is hired when needed at various times of the year or
when a large project requires more people on board to help develop and execute
it. While a consultant's fees may seem higher than a salaried employee, in the
long run there is considerable savings to a company (for example, full-time
payroll and benefits savings). Depending on your company's specific needs, Diamond
Dahlia offers three different options: monthly retainer basis, fixed project
rate, or daily rate.
To start a new business
If you are planning to expand your business or start a new company, you
may need to hire someone with experience to lead such a large undertaking,
and to work with existing staff or new staff. Julie Arvidson is a leader and
someone you can depend on to work from the inception of a project to a successful
launching. She is experienced in all areas of diamond jewelry, gemstone jewelry,
and has led teams to successfully launch branded product lines.
To provide objectivity
Many times associates within the organization have worked many years with
one company and it is difficult for them to bring a fresh viewpoint and new
ideas on how to grow existing business and develop new business. Julie Arvidson
takes an objective approach, working with the company's people, assessing
their individual talents to build productive teams, in order to plan and execute
projects to refresh merchandising and marketing programs.
To train existing staff
Sometimes just keeping the day to day operations going leaves little time left to train and develop staff. It is critical to have the next generation trained and ready to step into positions left by retiring staff or staff that has left the organization. Julie Arvidson has years of experience training merchandising, marketing, diamond departments, inventory management groups, as well as retail and wholesale sales management and staff.
