    Event Description:

    Join us as the OPRF Chamber Young Professionals host an evening mixer at Wild Onion Tied House to learn something new, meet people, enjoy a local gastropub and have a good time!

    Following in the footsteps of the international Pechakucha 20 x 20 format, this event will use the local GLIBQUAPS adaptation, where our presenters teach a skill in 15 slides!  What's the twist? They will have 15 seconds to talk about each slide, and the images will advance automatically. 225 seconds to do a presentation - and see if they can keep up with themselves!  This is our third year of GLIBQUAPS - every year is great fun!

    WHAT DOES YOUR TICKET INCLUDE? Your ticket includes fabulous Tied House appetizers, 3 beers from the famous Wild Onion brewery, and lots of fun! This is a fast-paced and high-energy get-together, so come ready to get involved, meet people and learn something new.

    WHAT IS THE WILD ONION ABOUT?  The Wild Onion Tied House is a retail establishment for a local brewery, which produces 17 different local beers.  It's also know for its food, created on-site and often featuring the in-house smoker.  Chef Carlos Belon hails from Argentina and has worked in kitchens all over the world, bringing those skills back to bring a stylish and elevated twist to American cuisine.  Let us know if you're vegan, vegetarian or gluten-free - we'll craft the evening's menu to make it work for all our guests.  

    WHO WILL BE THERE?  This event is hosted by the Young Professionals of the OPRF Chamber of Commerce, but you don't have to be a Chamber member or one of the YP group to attend - we're just the organizers!

    WHAT WILL HAPPEN?  You'll learn a lot quickly from some fun people!  We're asking presenters this year to address one (or both) of two topics: "What Has Disrupted My Industry - Or Is About To", and/or "What I Wish They'd Told Me When I Started, and What I Do Different for Knowing It Now."  

    Send us an email of a few sentences, pitching what your presentation will be about!  (vmatheny@cmhb-oakpark.org)  We'll choose about a dozen of the most promising, with a first round of applicants reviewed by Friday January 31. 

    Presenters will receive tips for doing their best GLIBQUAPS presentation, and info on to whom to send their Powerpoint file by day's end on Friday February 21.  This is your chance to position yourself as a subject matter expert; show how your business is on the leading edge of your industry; or demonstrate the savvy you've gained from experience.  Don't be shy about showing what you know - you'll only be speaking for 225 seconds!  :)
