I recently hosted Susanne Baugh, of Q&A Events on Midtown Business Radio. As we got to talking, she mentioned that I should meet Emma Foulkes, Presidnt of the Atlanta Gay Lesbian Chamber of Commerce. Because the respective missions of the chambers of commerce and Business Radio X have such overlap in the business environments we serve, I was pleased to reach out to her.
As the AGLCC’s website explains, “The AGLCC exists to promote the economic growth and advancement of our LGBT and allied business members, our non-profit organizational members as well as our corporate partners and their employees, through advocacy, leadership, education and support.”
When not overseeing AGLCC activities, Emma is Managing Partner at Commonwealth Business & Retirement Services. She’s a Certified Financial Planner, and has been advising entrepreneurs and high income earners in the Atlanta area since 2001. She provides retirement and business transition planning services in addition to others.

David Olt is a doctor of chiropractic and the clinical director of Integrated Chiropractic Center, a Buckhead‐Atlanta practice he founded in 2000. A Georgia‐licensed chiropractor certified by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners, Dr. Olt has been in practice for 21 years. He has provided pain and wellness care to thousands of patients.
He applies an integrated approach to pain care and health care that combines the effectiveness of several disciplines to support “whole person” care including chiropractic care, spinal and postural screening, corrective exercise instruction, nutritional counseling and massage therapy. His practice offers a one‐to‐one approach to spine and extremity pain relief that is non‐surgical, non‐pharmaceutical and focused on long‐term health and wellness.
Dr. Olt is a frequent speaker at lunch and learns and hosts the AGLCC Buckhead business builder luncheon. He has earned recognition for chiropractic care (Top 10 Chiropractors in Atlanta) and for business and community involvement (Four Avenues of Service, AGLCC Member of the Year 2014). Dr. Olt also serves as an examiner for the Chiropractic National Boards.
