Training for Success: Upcoming AICC Events

AICC, The Independent Packaging Association, has many opportunities in the coming months for packaging professionals to hone their skills. 

AICC has three free webinars coming up. 

On Wednesday, November 30, Preventing Unplanned Downtime and Creating a Machine Spares List, created with the support of SUN Automation, will bring expert advice on overcoming issues that get in the way of a successful job run, developing a checklist to assist in preventative maintenance, and creating an onsite spare parts program that will reduce downtime. 

Rumblings of a recession have been going on for some time now. On Wednesday, December 7, Recession Proof Your Revenue, brings steps to make a business recession-proof with Mark Roberts, sales consultant and trainer of OTB Solutions.

Without question, unboxing videos are a cultural phenomenon, with billions viewed every year. As a design strategist and packaging designer, Vicki Strull has studied the user experience of packaging design for 25+ years. In Unboxing the Secrets of Treasured Packaging, on Wednesday, December 14, she will share examples from her curated collection to explain the secrets behind how to make your packaging endure, dazzle, and even be immortalized in the unboxing metaverse.

AICC members can also learn how to set more qualified appointments in less time with Wendy Weiss during Salesology® Do-It-Yourself, a 12-modules online program for professional salespeople. The various modules will help attendees get past the gatekeepers, create a winning value proposition, respond to objections, and much more.
