Dr. Nido Qubein came to the United States as a teenager with little knowledge of English, no contacts and only $50 in his pocket. His life has been an amazing success story.

As an educator, he is president of High Point University, an undergraduate and graduate institution with 4,500 students from over 51 countries. He has authored two dozen books and audio programs distributed worldwide. His foundation provides scholarships to 48 deserving young people each year. To date the Nido Qubein Foundation has granted more than 700 scholarships, worth over six million dollars.

As a business leader, he is chairman of Great Harvest Bread Company with 220 stores in 43 states. He serves on the boards of several national organizations including BB&T (a Fortune 500 company with $175 billion-dollars in assets), the La-Z-Boy Corporation (one of the largest and most recognized furniture brands worldwide) and Dots Stores (a chain of fashion boutiques with more than 400 locations across the country.)

As a professional motivational speaker, Dr. Qubein has received many distinctions. Toastmasters International named him Top Business and Commerce Speaker and awarded him the Golden Gavel Medal. He is the youngest person ever inducted in the International Hall of Fame and is the founder of the prestigious National Speakers Foundation in Phoenix, Arizona. He is in great demand to speak to business and professional groups around the world each year.

He has been the recipient of many honors including the Ellis Island Medal of Honor, the Horatio Alger Award for Distinguished Americans, the Order of the Long Leaf Pine (North Carolina's highest civic award), Sales and Marketing International's Ambassador of Free Enterprise, Citizen of the Year and Philanthropist of the Year in his home city of High Point, North Carolina, induction into the Global Society for Outstanding Business Leadership, and dozens more. He is also an award winning entrepreneur speaker. 

Leadership
Change Management/Reculturing an Organization
Change is an eternal concept. In today's competitive marketplace, organizations must be able to grasp the reigns of change to ride it to a successful future. Many people are afraid to alter their behaviors, but it often proves more threatening than challenging. Dr. Nido Qubein transports audiences on a journey through business examples from his careers as a university president, business leader, corporate executive, and public speaker. He talks about change in an enlightening and transformational way so that audiences actually want to change for the better! Whether it is reculturing an organization or changing the mindset of an individual, this topic is as popular and timely as ever.

Strategy/Attitude
From Success to Significance
Out of adversity emerges abundance. Difficult times often are filled with opportunities. Dr. Nido Qubein came to the United States as a teenager with little knowledge of English, no contacts and only $50 in his pocket, yet ended up a mega-success story. Today, he is president of a leading university, chairman of a national retail company, and a director of two New York Stock Exchange corporations. He will share his own story, and his ideas and strategies for succeeding through even turbulent times. This dynamic, authentic, entertaining speaker delivers a powerful, inspiring message on finding focus, balance and meaning in business, and in life. You’ll leave this presentation entertained, and inspired to be impactfully innovative.

Dr. Nido Qubein is the President of High Point University and chairman of a national retail company – and one of the most sought-after leadership speakers.


Management
Achieving Peak Performance
This presentation will show you how to prepare your employees for high productivity and your company for maximum profitability. Learn how to grow a well-trained, educated and motivated team. Dr. Nido Qubein makes an important point: Teaching people skills without giving them a vision for a better future—a vision based on common values—is only training. He goes beyond dictionary definitions to show that yesterday’s thinking looks at the tasks people perform today and asks "How can we train our future employees to do these things?” Tomorrow’s thinking looks at the kind of people needed to execute corporate strategy and finds ways to educate employees to become those kind of people.


Sales
How To Sell, Serve and Succeed
To sell effectively in today’s ever-changing, competitive world, one must master sales skills and behavioral knowledge. Dr. Nido Qubein teaches both with humor and audience involvement. He focuses on the Law of Identification (when something becomes personal it becomes important; treat every customer as if you’re about to lose them) and teaches participants to ask penetrating questions (how must this person feel first so that this person will buy from us?). Dr. Nido Qubein emphasizes: Prospects don’t want to buy your product; they want to buy the product of your product. Remember: Your service and product must be better than your competitors and your customer must readily acknowledge that.


Positioning
If I wanted to Buy What You Sell, Would I Buy It From You?
Why should people do business with you? How easily can someone else imitate what you do? Do your customers think of you first? Dr. Nido Qubein shares dynamic principles for personal and corporate achievement. It doesn’t matter how much you know or what you can do. What matters is what your customers and colleagues believe and perceive you can do for them. Do they understand and value what you are offering? Your positioning reflects other people’s confidence in your ability to do whatever you do with professional competence and expertise-how much they trust you to meet their needs. Your positioning is the way people feel about you and your work; it’s about the way you make them feel when doing business with you. Dr. Nido Qubein shows your audience how to "position” for maximum results using a practical approach and a professional strategy.


Communication
Communicate Like a Pro
Communicating effectively with people, inside your company and beyond, is a minimum-requirement skill in our ever-changing global marketplace. This presentation is designed to help your audience develop the communication skills required and to wield them with power and effectiveness. They’ll learn not only the basics, but many of the finer points Dr. Nido Qubein has picked up during a long and successful career as a professional speaker, author, and advisor to top executives and to successful companies, including specific strategies used to "connect” for persuasion and results. To date he has written a dozen books, delivered thousands of speeches, and showed millions the art of effective communication. Entertaining and educational. An audience favorite!
