Noted author JD Messinger will be speaking  at McMurry University on Saturday, October 11, from 8:45-10:15 a.m. in the Ryan Recital Hall. He also will be doing a book signing at Hastings on Friday, October 10.

Messinger, author of 11 Days in May, began his adult life as a fireman, and moved on to be the former CEO of Ernst & Young Consulting, Singapore. One of 37 Distinguished Graduates from the United States Naval Academy, a former nuclear submarine officer, television and radio show creator, producer and host, and the Exxon executive who helped supervise the Valdez Oil spill cleanup.

Nominated for the CNBC Asian CEO of the year, he was the Channel News Asia IT Person of the week, and a senior advisor to the Singapore Prime Minister, members of parliament in Great Britain, China, Brunei, Australia and Malaysia on corporate, national and industrial evolution, innovation and energy. He is the recipient of numerous corporate and national presidential awards and his position papers have been distributed to three U.S. Presidential candidates and dignitaries around the world.

His book 11 Days in May was written in eleven days following his recovery from a near-death experience.  It is like a conversation in which he asks questions and received responses (not always answers).  He is an energetic, passionate speaker who talks about empowered leadership, discovering your purpose, and says "I want to help you get your mind, body and spirit aligned and going in one direction. I want to help you find the confidence to believe, the courage to act, and the support network to unleash your power."
