The CCO Presents “Outside The Box Speaker Series”


Steve Hammer to Serve as Chairman for the CCO

“Outside The Box Speaker Series”

It was announced today by the Managing Editor of the City-County Observer, Timothy Justin Phillips, that he is planning to launch the “Outside the Box Speaker Series” in the near future.

Phillips says this series will feature unique and insightful stories of success and perseverance from prominent business leaders that tend to fly under the public radar.

Plans are to hold this speaking series on a monthly basis. We will be holding this event at an area location convenient to the business community and the attendees.

We understand that there are a lot of successful entrepreneurs who, because of economic, technological, or political challenges, have experienced a negative impact on their businesses.

We are going to actively search for business people who went through economic adversity due to bureaucratic restrictions, governmental intervention, or increased competition, but had the good business sense to “Think Outside The Box” to allow their products or services to continue to thrive. We also hope that this will turn out to be a great resource for developing businesses.

We are pleased to announce that well-known businessman and community leader Steve Hammer has agreed to serve as chairman of this important event. Mr. Hammer will announce his committee members sometime next week.



  1. About Hammer: Great idea. Business people have a lot to gain from educating the rest of us what they need.

    About Gaming: Just heard Rep Hatfield is fighting hard for us in Indianapolis. He voted against the gaming bill as it left the House – not because of the sports gaming sections but because the legislature cut out Evansville from impact considerations. He is now meeting with gaming bill supporters to get them on Evansvile’s side. Thank Rep Hatfield today and tell him you support his efforts!!
