July 2018 – The Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce launches their Chattanooga Works podcast featuring Chamber member businesses.

Produced by Interactive Content Designer Eric Lisica and hosted by the Chamber’s President & CEO Christy Gillenwater and Creative Director Jeremy Henderson, the podcast’s goal is to tell our community’s business stories, highlight local startup activity and give career, hiring and talent advice straight from local experts.

The first Chattanooga Works episode features Chamber members Bees on a Bicycle and The Bitter Alibi.

“It was with supreme joy that I completed my first big interview as owner and operator of Bees,” said Cath Shaw Truelove, owner and founder of Bees on a Bicycle. “I've given hundreds of speeches and must say that the hosts of this podcast did a tremendous job of pulling out good stories, and one very dear announcement from me. I'm so proud of the result.”

Chattanooga Works episodes will be released biweekly.

Up next: inventor Felicia Jackson of CPR Wrap and a roundtable discussion with Alexis Willis, Director of Small Business and Entrepreneurship at the Hamilton County INCubator, Marcus Shaw, CEO of The Company Lab and Hal Bowling, founder and CEO of Launch Chattanooga.
