The 90-minute “crash course” seminar will clarify the rights of business owners to protect what they create, and cover issues currently at play online that are undermining well-known brands and cutting into the bottom line of pleasure products manufacturers in all market niches. Through hand outs, case studies, and anecdotes from the trenches, professionals fighting digital piracy, trademark and patent infringement, and counterfeit sales online will reveal what’s being stolen, how it’s being stolen, how the internet is helping to facilitate this illicit activity and ways of working to combat it.
The seminar is free and open to the public, but registration is recommended to guarantee seating.
Does networking make you feel uncomfortable? Is it hard for you to pull out your business card and offer it to someone? Do you fear being that person who self-promotes too much?
CatalystCon presents its first official pre-conference networking event to help bring attendees together, foster personal relationships and business contacts. Come introduce yourself to fellow attendees, colleagues, speakers, and sponsors to let them know who you are and what you do. Because this is a networking event, it is encouraged to talk about your business, hand out business cards and flyers, and let the world know what you’re doing in the field of sexology.
CatalystCon Networking will take place on Friday, September 12 at 5:30pm.
CatalystCon Morning Yoga
Awaken your senses each morning with a gentle Vinyasa Flow class that adds a special kink to your twists. Stacey Swimme will lead you in a practice intended to enhance your mind-body connection to help you more fully experience and enjoy CatalystCon. Yoga encourages us to serve ourselves in a way that allows us to be more intuitive lovers and emotionally capable partners. During the practice you will learn a bit about the Chakra system and the role it plays in our relationships to others, as well as some of the science that looks at how yoga can be an asset for reproductive health, including painful menstruation and erectile dysfunction. You may bring a mat if you have one, but don’t worry about it if not.
