Free webcast on HDR

High dynamic range imaging experts Unified Color will host a free hour-long webinar on Wednesday, November 28, and Friday, November 30, that  “will highlight breakthrough technology,” the company says.

New Adaptive Tone Mapping matches the process to your particular image. The upcoming HDR Express 2 software also simplifies the HDR process “to a point that promises users of any skill level first-time success when creating 32-bit color HDR images.”

Free webinar trains accountability

A free webinar from Partners In Leadership will show how accountability “is the answer to increasing revenues, decreasing costs, and successfully implementing key initiatives,” the company says.

The authors of the book, The Oz Principle: Getting Results Through Individual and Organizational Accountability, will show you how their clients have used the training to achieve record-setting results, “like an increase in stock price from $.31 cents/share to $22 dollars/share in about 2 years,” the company says.

“Accountability is the guiding principle that defines how we make commitments to one another; how we measure and report our progress; how we interact when things go wrong, and how much ownership we take to get things done. It is, in essence, the nerve center that runs throughout every part of the organization, through every working relationship to every member of every team.”
Thousands of companies and hundreds of thousands of people in more than 50 countries use accountability training, the book’s authors claim.

The session is in on Wednesday, November 14, 2012, from 10am – 11am PST.
