2017 Orlando Seminar Schedule


Wednesday, March 1

Room W222

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.

 

10:15 am – 11:15am
Top 5 Things You Should Be Doing With A 3D Printer
Dan Perreault & Andy Coutu, R & D Technologies, Inc   www.rnd-tech.com

3D printing or Additive Manufacturing (AM) has become one of the this decade’s hottest subjects. Nevertheless, many situations in which 3D printing may boost innovation and production, while simultaneously decreasing cost and time to market, are commonly overlooked. AM is one of the most effective prototyping methods for design optimization, however the process also lends itself wonderfully to less-likely considered applications which include the printing of jigs and fixtures, useable injection mold cavities, casting patterns, and durable end-use parts. Whether your application calls for the smooth finish and ultra-high resolution of PolyJet, or the strength and durability of Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM), here are the top 5 things you should be doing with your 3D Printer.

11:30 am – 12:30 pm
The New 3D Printing Revolution: Got Carbon Fiber? Got Metal?
Russell Lamoy, The SolidExperts/Markforged            www.thesolidexperts.com

Affordable industrial quality 3D printing is revolutionizing how we design, develop, test and produce new products. New 3D printing materials developed by MarkForged deliver composite parts in carbon fiber, kevlar, fiberglass and even metal.

The SolidExperts will show you why 3D printers are not just for prototyping anymore.  These technologies enable designers, architects, engineers, inventors, researchers, doctors, jewelers, teachers, students and more to easily exploit digital to physical technologies to significantly improve design and production times, increase accuracy, and reduce costs across the board.

With 3D printing technologies, customers are performing same-day tool production, creation and shipping of end-use parts in hours, and 3D printing speeds that can almost match those of injection molding. The SolidExperts services a wide variety of industries and offers a wide range of solutions including; engineering and design software, which when combined with 3D scanning technologies and 3D printing, provide customers with a comprehensive, integrated solution to create 3D data from physical objects, conduct rapid design and engineering on 3D data, and output immediately to 3D printed parts.

 
12:45pm-1:45pm
Negotiation Do’s & Don’ts
Video Presentation by Margaret Neale

Program Highlights

  • What is your biggest source of power in any negotiation?
  • How to redraw the boundaries of a negotiation in your favor.
  • How focusing on the upside improves your deal.

It’s better to receive the first offer than to give it. Honesty is the best negotiating policy. Professor Neale convincingly debunks these common beliefs as she shares the results of empirical research on negotiating strategies and the process of “mutual influence” that drives negotiation. This informative one-hour video presentation will help you get the best deal you can when negotiating with suppliers (or anyone). Find out what works and what doesn’t. This free presentation is a $95 value, but it could save you thousands. Attend this Free Negotiating video presentation then visit the AmCon exhibits and apply what you’ve learned on the show floor.

9:00am-10:00am
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.

 

10:15am – 11:15am
Beyond Stereolithography: Functional Aluminum & Plastic Prototypes
Tom Brady, Armstrong Plastic 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.
