With a new year generally comes resolutions for improving many aspects of your life — both personally and professionally.

The Palestine Area Chamber of Commerce is bringing in a speaker for its Quarterly Chamber Luncheon this month that will address the self improvement area in many people’s resolution wish list.

Hannah Krause, of Direct Training Development, will present a program on “Mastering Your Memory” to help individuals improve their performance and overall skills.

The program will include a memory demonstration where those in attendance will play an interactive memory game to discover what can be accomplished with the new skill of “mastering your memory.” The methods demonstrated will be brought down to specific and applicable usages of having a trained memory: increased sales, more confidence and competitive advantage.

The presentation will cover: How to have an instant recall of client’s names, market data, to-do lists, numbers and more; connecting with clients in meaningful ways; leading meetings with confidence and competence; giving presentations without notes; and steps in reducing stress.

The luncheon will be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Jan. 21 at Ben E. Keith Community Room, 2019 W. Oak St. Cost is $10, which includes lunch.
