Connecting Dots in the Metal Powder World

Bill Stainton
Emmy Award-winning TV producer, writer, performer, and author

In the competitive metal powder industry, challenging problems require innovative solutions. And coming up with innovative solutions requires creative ideas. But where do these creative ideas come from? And how can we, as metal powder industry leaders, come up with them—effectively and on-demand? In this entertaining and enlightening program, multiple Emmy Award winner Bill Stainton will show us that creative ideas are not a function of the “lightning bolt” from above; they’re a function of connecting dots.
