Author, Consultant, Former President of GIA
No one in this generation has had a greater impact on the gem and jewelry industry than Bill Boyajian. In his 31-year tenure with the prestigious Gemological Institute of America (GIA), the last 20 years as its President, he impacted the lives and careers of thousands of people and left a lasting legacy of leadership. He is largely credited for taking the Institute to its pre-eminent global position today.
Twenty years ago Mr. Boyajian met Focus founder, Don Greig, and has been a fan of his work ever since. He has heard story after story about how Don and his team at Focus Business Management Institute have saved businesses and changed lives. Bill was even sure to include a quote from Don in his new book, “Developing the Mind of a Leader”.
Two years ago Bill wrote a glowing testimonial for Focus outlining the success stories that he has heard throughout the decades he has spent in the jewelry business. In the Spring of 2011, Bill was at the Focus BMI offices and took a few minutes to record his thoughts to video. Below are two videos in which Bill discusses his admiration for Don and the work that his Focus BMI team is doing.
