Inside Quality Digest Live for September 13, 2018

Our last show from IMTS

Published: Friday, September 14, 2018 - 12:02

We’re almost done with another great IMTS, and we had a ball seeing old friends and meeting new ones while bringing you all the action right here on QDL. In this, our final episode from Chicago, we talked about the nature of the customer journey and how to motivate your team. Plus we had an in-depth Tech Corner from our hosts at Olympus America. Here’s a closer look:

The Gold Rush Syndrome: How Effective Leaders Capitalize on a Dream

Jack Dunigan is a leader who teaches other leaders how to lead better. In his latest article, Dunigan uses California’s Gold Rush to explain how to leverage intrinsic motivation for the good of an organization and all those working within it.

“Tech Corner: LEXT OLS5000 3D Laser Scanning Confocal Microscope

Dirk was joined by Guangnan Meng, Product Manager, Industrial Microscopy Scientific Solutions Group for Olympus America, to check out the LEXT OLS5000. 


Olympus America was good enough to offer a prize drawing for a lucky QDL viewer as part of their sponsorship of today’s show. Accordingly, we’re happy to announce that Dale Rumble was drawn at random from all entries to win a brand-new pair of Olympus DPC I Series binoculars. Congratulations, Dale!

Our next episode of Quality Digest Live comes to you from back in our home studio on Friday, Sept. 21. You can watch either via our home page or our special player page. See you then… and for all of you currently at IMTS, safe travels home from Chicago!
