SWARTZ CREEK — The Swartz Creek Area Chamber of Commerce partnering with the Grand Blanc, Burton, Genesee Regional and Davison Area Chambers of Commerce will host speaker Michael Jeffreys at the Holiday Inn Gateway Centre in Flint Township on Jan. 23 at 5:30 p.m.

Jeffreys is president and founder of the Yes! Network. Since 1988, he has been a guest speaker at more than 1,000 companies and has delivered more than 3,000 hours of live training. He has been featured in the Detroit News, Detroit Free Press, Crain’s Detroit Business and several other area publications.

Debra Hackett, the president of the Swartz Creek Area Chamber of Commerce, said Jeffreys is about having a positive attitude.

“He helps you put a positive spin on whatever is going on,” she said. “You can say it, but he gives you the tools to live it.”

Hacket also said Jeffreys has the ability to flush out of you what is holding you back.

“You may not even realize what’s holding you back. He’s able to bring that to the surface,” she said.

Hackett said the chamber wanted to bring Jeffreys to the area as part of its fresh start theme it is embracing for the new year. The event is part of the educational workshop series offered by the Swartz Creek Area Chamber of Commerce and is free to the membership of the Swartz Creek Area Chamber of Commerce and all participating chambers.

There is a $10 fee for all non-members which can be paid by cash or check at the door upon check in.

Anyone interested in attending the event should RSVP by e-mail at info@swartzcreekchamber.org.

There will be a brief networking opportunity before the event at 5:15 p.m., which will include refreshments, and Jeffreys will begin speaking at 5:30 p.m. The event will conclude around 7-7:30 p.m. with an audience question and answer session with Jeffreys.
