2nd Annual Chamber Diner Was A Night Full of Laughs
Mr. Walter Keener, Human Resources Director of Powerflame in Parsons, was the guest speaker at the second annual Erie Area Chamber of Commerce Diner. He is a nationally recognized speaker who focuses on adding humor and reducing stress in the workplace. The name plate on his door reads "Humor Resources", and he is true to his word. Walter was very interactive with the audience, and it made for an really enjoyable evening.
