The Greater Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce held its "Breaking Through" luncheon in the Grand Ballroom of the Skirvin Hilton today, February 28. Featured speaker was Rick Horrow ... and Doug Dawg is your friendly correspondent!

A streaming video of the entire affair is at the Journal Record website. You might read Mr. Streuli's comments first so that you can skip to the actual speech. The video is also embedded, below.

And, man, did he deliver a great great speech!
It was a fantastic event ... Doug Dawg is even more pumped now! I'll add more description later today.
Here's the Chamber's video. You can use the "slider" to get past the dead space while people were eating ... go to about 45%-48% of the way through the whole video and you'll find the speech.
