2017 Fort Lauderdale Seminar Schedule


2017 AmCon Fort Lauderdale Seminars

Wednesday, November 8th

9:00am-10:00am
Power of Persuasion
Video Presentation by Robert Cialdini

Call it persuading, negotiating or convincing. Ethical influence is the foundation of successful leadership, management, sales, and customer service. Robert Cialdini has spent his career systematically studying the psychology of influence. In this video, he reveals what lies at the heart of his findings: the six principles of influence that form the basis of effective, persuasive appeals. These principles-reciprocation, scarcity, authority, commitment, liking, and consensus-may seem like the jargon of social scientists, but Cialdini brings them to life. In this dynamic presentation, Dr. Cialdini provides clear step-by-step examples of behaviors that you can put to use daily to increase your influence. You will learn why you say yes to some offers, simply based on the way they are presented. And you’ll learn how to defend against offers that you’re really not interested in, no matter how effectively they’re presented. This free presentation is a $95 value, but it could save you thousands. Attend this Free Negotiating Skills presentation then visit the AmCon exhibits and apply what you’ve learned on the show floor.

 

10:15am-11: 15am
Advanced Applications Using 3D Printing
Ken Brace, Rapid Prototyping Services   www.rapidps.com

This presentation will discuss the advanced application available using additive manufacturing. The topics will include Electroplating models, Blow Mold Tooling, Fiberglass forms, Investment Casting Masters, Manufacturing tools, Modular Fixtures, Paper Pulp Molds, Polystyrene Molds, RTV Molds, Sand Casting masters, Thermoforming Molds, Carbon Fiber Lay-up Molds, and Soluble Core Molds. Further information contact Ken Brace 321-536-2611.

 

11:30am – 12:30pm
Scaling Metal 3D Printing from Prototype to High Volume Production
Michael Pomper, The SolidExperts Inc     www.thesolidexperts.com

Today’s metal 3D printers are the mainframe computers of manufacturing. They are large, slow, and expensive. In the same way mainframes were disrupted by cloud data centers, large-format metal printers will be replaced by smaller, low cost machines working in parallel – print-farms.

Markforged’s Atomic Diffusion Additive Manufacturing (ADAM) process for printing metal unlocks a new era of metal parts production. Hear how parallelization will enable production scale metal 3D printing in this new seminar.

 

12:45pm-1:45pm
Negotiating Skills Video Presentation

Whether negotiating a contract, asking for a raise, or buying a car, this video presentation will help you get the best deal you can while still maintaining a positive working relationship with the other parties. This free video presentation is a $189 value, but it could save you thousands.

 

2:00pm-3:00pm
3D Printing for Manufacturing
Mindy Beegle, Dimension Works, LLC     www.dimension.works

3D Printing continues to change the way manufacturers go to market. In an industry where new advancements seem to come every day, it may be tough to figure out where to start with 3D Printing. If you’re in Engineering, Design or Manufacturing, please join us to discuss real-life, every-day applications of 3D Printing for manufacturing.

10:15am-11:15am
Beyond Stereolithography: Functional Aluminum & Plastic Prototypes
Paul Armstrong , Armstrong Mold Corp.            www.armstrongmold.com

By marrying the new rapid prototyping modeling techniques with traditional crafts based casting and tooling approaches, it is now possible to get high quality, spec material metal and plastic prototypes in 2-3 weeks at relatively low cost. This seminar will take you from CAD concept thru finished prototype parts.

Winners (Don’t) Take All
Video Presentation by Margaret Neale

Program Highlights

  • What NOT to learn from experience.
  • Where your greatest source of power dwells.
  • Why you might knowingly and voluntarily take a bad deal.

Negotiations have two dimensions: the creation of value, and the claiming of that value. Negotiators often focus on the value-claiming side, destroying value-creation opportunities in the process. Professor Neale describes the disastrous outcomes that result when negotiators’ antagonism and pride obscure their own best interests. She explains how to focus instead on three critical data points: your reservation price, your aspiration price, and your best alternatives to an agreement. You can get a great deal—or you can walk away. Either way, you win.
