NORMAN, Okla., Oct. 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The Michael F. Price College of Business at the University of Oklahoma has launched the Sanford & Hall Report, which examines a breadth and depth of challenges that have risen to the top of the C-Suite agenda and are necessary for effective board meeting preparation.
Drawing on national security career experiences from 9/11 to the modern pandemic, co-hosts Adriana Sanford, a global threats expert, and retired Rear Adm. Garry Hall will address how to secure national and global supply, resiliency and post-COVID-19 economic recovery.
“Our challenge is not to tell you what to think, but to make you think,” said Hall. “A thinking individual makes better decisions for themselves, their family and their community. Advancing critical thinking advances a more civil society.”
The new video series launches Friday, Oct. 30, and is being offered through the college’s Gene Rainbolt Graduate School of Business, home to OU’s graduate business programs.
“We are fortunate to have Adm. Garry Hall involved in this endeavor with Acting Director of Executive Education Adriana Sanford,” said Shad Satterthwaite, director of executive business programs and aerospace and defense at the Gene Rainbolt Graduate School of Business. “Admiral Hall brings his in-depth analytical background to the discussion of these real-world problems. The reports that he and Adriana discuss represent important challenges in our current environment.”
The Sanford & Hall Report is offered complimentary online through YouTube and at price.ou.edu/s&hReport, along with additional information, including speaker bios.
The following topics are scheduled throughout October and into November:
- Counterfeiting and Piracy
- Street Gangs and Human Trafficking

- Cyber Criminals and the Dangers of the Dark Web
