Henry Winkler to Keynote at AGS Conclave

Henry Winkler to Keynote at AGS Conclave Henry Winkler, Emmy-winning actor, director, producer, and New York Times best-selling author, will be the opening keynote speaker for the American Gem Society’s Annual Conclave which will be held in Denver, Colorado, April 27-29, 2020 at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel.

Joining Winkler will be two other powerful speakers who have signed up to educate and motivate: innovation expert Josh Linkner will be the keynote on April 28, and pilot Amelia Rose Earhart will be the closing keynote on April 29.

Winkler won the Emmy in 2018 for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for his role in the HBO series, Barry, and is perhaps, best known for his role as Fonzie in Happy Days. Winkler’s presentations are designed to inspire and entertain through humorous

anecdotes and inspirational life lessons about overcoming adversity to his storied career in television and entertainment.

Josh Linkner, a five-time successful tech entrepreneur, keynote speaker, and CEO will deliver a clear call-to-action to the AGS membership: innovate and disrupt your organization to stay ahead of the competition and embrace change for a brighter future.

As an inspiring pilot, Amelia Rose Earhart became one of the youngest women to fly a single-engine plane around the world. In her keynote, Amelia will teach the AGS community how to create a flight plan for success, define their “True North,” and achieve their goals.

Funnyman Joel Zeff returns as the emcee. Zeff, an acclaimed motivator, public speaker, humorist, and actor, is well-known to the AGS members as a past keynote and featured speaker at Conclave.

“In addition to our exciting lineup of keynote speakers, Conclave will feature a robust schedule of breakout sessions on topics vital to our industry, such as sustainability, security, and of course, sessions that help our members drive business, such as sales, marketing, gemology, and financial management,” said Alexis Padis, CGA, and Chair of the Conclave Subcommittee. “With numerous networking opportunities, Conclave is a great place for the AGS community to mingle and meet other like-minded professionals who share their mission of consumer protection, ongoing education, and high standards of business ethics.”

The American Gem Society would like to thank Jewelers Mutual Insurance Group, who is, once again, the Presenting Sponsor for Conclave. AGS recognizes and appreciates JM’s continuing support of Conclave. Their support over the years has enabled Conclave to offer outstanding speakers year after year.

Registration for Conclave opened on November 5. To learn more, visit
