The time is getting close for AMT’s 2017 Distribution Summit, September 13-14, 2017, at the Ritz-Carlton, St. Louis. D17 brings distributors, builders, and suppliers together to discover the newest in sales, business practices, and operations for U.S. advanced manufacturing companies.

This year’s D17 keynote speaker, John O’Leary, will inspire you to think differently with his extraordinary personal account of survival and perseverance. Through his presentation Seven Choices to Ignite a Radically Inspired Life, John will reinvigorate your drive to achieve happiness and success. You can get a taste of John’s presentation by checking out his videos on YouTube or following him on Twitter, @JOLearyInspires.

All that inspiration will prove energizing for tackling the other topics to be covered at D17: Improving your sales practices; how key industries will perform in the coming weeks and months; the latest in additive manufacturing and other technologies; and plenty of networking with industry colleagues. D17 Line-up:

Bill Graham:  Likability and how it pertains to success in sales
