Would you respect a man who 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? Would you listen to what he has to say about success?

Meet Nido Qubein who is chairman of an international consulting firm and recipient of the highest awards given for professional speakers including the Cavett (known as the Oscar of professional speaking), the Speakers Hall of Fame, and Sales and Marketing International's Ambassador of Free Enterprise. Toastmasters International named him the Top Business and Commerce Speaker and awarded him the Golden Gavel Medal.
He served as president of the National Speakers Association which has a membership of 4,000 professionals and is the founder of the National Speakers Association Foundation where the highest award for Philanthropy is named for him. Nido has been the recipient of many honors including the Ellis Island Medal of Honor, a Doctorate of Laws degree, and induction into Beta Gamma Sigma, the honor society for business leadership.

Nido's business savvy led him to help start a bank in 1986 and today he serves on the board and executive committee of a Fortune 500 financial corporation with 97 billion-dollars in assets and 25,000 employees. He is also chairman of a national public relations company, chairman of Great Harvest Bread Company with 210 stores in 39 states, chairman of Business Life, Inc., and chairman of the Miss North Carolina USA program. He serves on the boards of several national organizations including the YMCA of the USA which oversees 2,600 YMCA's across the country.

Nido is president of High Point University, an accredited undergraduate and graduate institution with 3,000 students from 33 countries. He has written numerous books and recorded scores of audio and video learning programs including a bestseller on effective communication published by Nightingale-Conant and Berkley. He is an active speaker and consultant addressing more than 100 business and professional groups around the world each year. He doesn't just talk business, he lives it. He is an entrepreneur with active interests in real estate, advertising, and banking.

His foundation provides scholarships to 48 deserving young people each year. To-date the Qubein Foundation has granted more than 600 scholarships, worth over three million dollars. Money magazine claims, "Qubein puts on a memorable program, gliding from one anecdote to another. Nearly 70 percent of his business comes from companies that have utilized him before. His client list is a 'who's who' of blue chip corporations."

Bizlife magazine says, "He coupled his charismatic style and positive nature with his acquired knowledge of human relations and communication...and built a multi-million dollar, multifaceted consulting enterprise -- proving the American dream is still alive and well."

Programs and brief descriptions:
  • Motivation - From Success to Significance
    A powerful and inspiring presentation on focus, balance, and meaning in business and in life. Nido cites major differences between creativity (how can we do this differently) and innovation (how can we do this better). He distinguishes among tasks, goals, and purpose humorously yet persuasively with thoughtful impact.

  • Leadership - Achieving Peak Performance
    Nido will show you how to prepare your employees for high productivity and your company for maximum profitability - how to grow a well trained, educated and motivated team. You can train people to do the mechanical tasks related to your business but you can't train them to seek excellence. Attitude changes through consistent input that appeals to an individual's self-interest and organizational spirit.

  • 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. Nido teaches both with humor and audience involvement. He focuses on the Law of Identification (when something becomes personal it becomes important). Nido emphasizes: Prospects don't want to buy your product; they want to buy the product of your product.

  • 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? Nido 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... how well they understand and value what you are offering.

  • 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. Individuals who communicate effectively with people at all levels of both genders and a variety of cultures are today's pacesetters. This presentation is designed to help you develop the communication skills required and to wield them with power and effectiveness. Additional presentation topics include: Change, Customer Service, Time Management and Personal/Professional Development.
Client Testimonials:
"Nido exceeded my expectations! He embedded my organization's challenges in his presentation. His passion and enthusiasm were uplifting. I will be using him again."
-- Mark Steinberg, Senior Vice President Sales, Wausau Insurance Companies

"In the past four years it has been my job to find the guest speaker and I take it very seriously. The speaker must be funny, but not a comedian, he must be entertaining, but not an actor, and above all, the speaker's message must apply to everyone. I know our sales people will think differently about people in jeans and sneakers. They will also be cognizant of positioning and never afraid of saying, 'They come in a set.' Our leaders will be keenly aware of the difference between education and training, and everyone will remember your common sense approach to life's challenges. I even had an employee ask for your address in order to write you. That, in 19 years is a first."
-- Glenn E. Tiberiis, Special Events Coordinator, TASCA Lincoln-Mercury, Inc.
