System Effect
Ever wonder why a particular system does not perform as expected?  In many cases the under-performance is due to system effect.  Learn how various inlet and outlet conditions affect fan and overall system performance.  Witness a demonstration varying from ideal to worst case scenarios on an operating fan with liver performance measurements.  If there was ever a case for more space in a mechanical room, this is it.

Everyone Communicates, Few Connect
“Only One Thing Stands Between You and Success. It Isn’t Experience. It Isn’t Talent.” 
~John Maxwell
World-renowned leadership expert John C. Maxwell says if you want to succeed, you must learn how to connect with people. And while it may seem like some folks are just born with it, the fact is anyone can learn how to make every communication an opportunity for a powerful connection. In Everyone Communicates, Few Connect, I will share the Five Principles and Five Practices to develop the crucial skill of connecting, including:
  • Finding Common Ground
  • Keeping Your Communication Simple
  • Capturing People’s Interest
  • Inspiring People
  • Staying Authentic in all Your Relationships
The ability to connect with others is a major determining factor in reaching your full potential. It’s no secret! Connecting is a skill you can learn and apply in your personal, professional, and family relationships
