Chamber To Host Public Speaking Session

For some people, speaking in public can really be a stressful experience. But it doesn’t have to be that way.


Find out how to avoid “sweating it out” when the Mt. Olive Area Chamber of Commerce’s next Lunch and Learn meeting takes place on Tues., Feb. 23, from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m., at The Corner Pub in Flanders.


Whether it’s a small or large crowd, presentation skills are just as important no matter what the circumstance. They’re critical to the success of a business or organization. Guest speaker Tommy Hilcken of Toolbox Talent is a master storyteller and dynamic entertaining speaker who will help through the process.

In this program Hilcken will show how to use humor and personal stories to build a connection with an audience. He will help break through fears and challenges, and give great tips that can implement immediately to make a better speaker.

The presentation includes lunch and costs $15 per person in advance; non-members $20; $5 more at the door. Reserve a spot at


Marketing in the Morning, a complimentary benefit to members of the Chamber, takes place the third Wednesday every month from 7:15 a.m. to 9 a.m. There is a $10 fee but it is complimentary to members of the chamber. Register in advance at the chamber website.


In addition, the chamber hosts monthly meetings for Young Professionals and Women in Business.
