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.

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.

Beyond Stereolithography: Functional Aluminum & Plastic Prototypes
Paul Armstrong, 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.
