Meet Africa, a six-year-old Labrador retriever guide dog who travels the world with her partner, Michael Hingson, talking about Trust, Teamwork, and Life. Yes, you will meet Michael Hingson as well. He will tell you and your audience about working with guide dogs and the many lessons he has learned from them. In fact, Mr. Hingson will tell you very honestly that "I have learned more about team building and management from working with seven guide dogs that I have learned from Brian Tracy, Ken Blanchard, and all the other experts combined".
Mr. Hingson will share and discuss the 10 lessons of "Guide Dog Wisdom" presented in his number one New York Times best-selling book, "Thunder Dog" and he will show the audience how to apply these same lessons in their own lives. He will use his story of survival and escape from the World Trade Center on 9/11, 2001 as a backdrop to show how each of us can become a better team player and team builder. Audiences take from Mike's talks lessons and ideas they can immediately apply in their work and home environments to make life more fun and build stronger and richer relationships with the people around them. Mike says, "there's a lot to be said for thinking more like a Labrador". "Don't knock it till you have tried it." Mike promises that you will be enthralled and captivated and won't miss a minute of his speech unlike Africa who has heard it all before and will probably sleep through most of it.
