Henderson State University’s School of Business will host Aaron Beam as its Distinguished Lecturer in Business Ethics at 2 p.m., March 6, in the Garrison Center Lecture Hall.
Beam started a healthcare company from nothing, raised some venture capital, took the company public in two years, became a millionaire overnight and watched his company become the darling of Wall Street.
But Beam found himself in the middle of a corporate scandal, lost almost everything, and ended up in prison.
Beam is a popular, highly regarded speaker at universities, healthcare companies, auditor meetings and conventions, securities training seminars and ethics institutes across the U.S. He has spoken to student audiences as a guest lecturer at numerous business schools over the past four years.
“I think others can learn from my story,” Beam says. “From how I started a major company, got involved in the fraud while serving as CFO; and more importantly, the human story of the pain of going through a scandalous trial and to prison.”
The lecture is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Henderson’s School of Business at firstname.lastname@example.org.
