The Roswell Chamber of Commerce will hold a banquet Thursday featuring “The Gift of Attitude” with guest speaker Sam Glenn.
This event begins at 5:30 p.m. and will be held at the Roswell Convention Center.
“We will begin the evening with music and cocktails, followed with a wonderful dinner and silent auction and conclude with Sam Glenn presenting ‘The Gift of Attitude,’” said Candace Lewis, office manager for the Chamber. “You don’t want to miss this fun-filled evening that will leave you inspired and in a great frame of mind.”
Chamber Executive Director Dorrie Faubus-McCarty says Sam Glenn is a wonderful motivational speaker.
“I read his book, ‘The Big Book of Attitude,’ and it was just wonderful.”
Glenn is the author of numerous books and a much sought after motivational speaker.
Glenn’s stories are gleaned from his own life experiences of successes and failures, according to his website, samglenn.com.
“Having lost a very successful business due to fire, Sam became negative, broke, depressed, jobless, and homeless — almost overnight. It was a chance encounter, and subsequent friendship, with Zig Ziglar that eventually gave Sam a ‘Kick in the Attitude,’” the website states.
That encounter with Ziglar changed Glenn’s attitude and life for the better. Within two years, Glenn went from sleeping on the floor, to achieving dreams he once thought impossible.
“Sam’s ability to pull positivity out of adversity, has led him to become the leading voice on the topic of attitude as it relates to being a leader, dealing with change, cultivating a culture of engagement, improving customer service, and improving your personal and professional development,” the website said.
“Over the years, Sam Glenn has been the ‘go-to’ resource for hundreds of organizations who value positive people, engaged in positive action. Sam’s energetic, and often humorous, programs engage, equip and empower audiences with an attitude recharge that will improve performance in their professional, as well as personal, lives.”
The event is sponsored by Krumland Auto Group, Faubus-McCarty said, and corporate event sponsorships and chamber sponsorships are available.
