Cameron University and OK Ethics to feature author of “Thunder Dog” via live stream on February 6

The Cameron University School of Business will present New York Times best-selling author and inspirational speaker Michael Hingson in a live stream of the Oklahoma Business Ethics Consortium (OK Ethics) monthly forum. Cameron’s live stream will take place on Thursday, February 6 at 11:30 a.m. in the McCasland Ballroom of the McMahon Centennial Complex. The $25 registration fee includes lunch. Pre-registration is required and can be completed at www.okethics.org.  The program is recommended for one CPE in ethics for CPAs desiring to further their educational endeavors.

“Cameron’s live stream of the OK Ethics forum provides professionals in southwest Oklahoma with access to nationally known leaders in business ethics,” says John Camey, Dean of the Cameron University School of Business. “This is an outstanding networking opportunity, and Cameron is pleased to partner with OK Ethics to make it possible.”

“Promoting Oklahoma values of integrity at work is the intent behind the OK Ethics’ monthly business forums,” says Shannon Warren, founder of the Oklahoma Business Ethics Consortium.  “We typically have an average of 350 attendees at our Oklahoma City luncheons, and we are pleased to provide the same experience to the Lawton Fort Sill community via live stream.”

Hingson will speak on "Trust, Teamwork & Thunder Dog's Triumph." Blind since birth, Hingson survived the 9/11 terrorist attacks with the help of his guide dog, Roselle. This story of trust, teamwork and his indomitable will to live and thrive is the subject of his best-selling book, “Thunder Dog: The True Story of a Blind Man, His Guide Dog and the Triumph of Trust,”  which topped the New York Times best-seller list. He explores the broader lessons of his life and experiences as a blind person in today's world and shares these lessons to educate, inspire and empower audiences worldwide. 

Hingson is the National Ambassador for the National Braille Literacy Campaign, an initiative of the National Federation of the Blind, and also serves as Ambassador for the American Humane Association's Hero Dog Awards. His dog, Roselle, was the first recipient of that honor. Hingson holds a master's degree in physics from University of California Irvine and is an accomplished technologist.
