Dr. Nido Qubein came to the United States with $50 in his pocket and a few words of English in his vocabulary … yet went on to become one of America’s most sought-after speakers and consultants.
As a university president, the story of his tenure at High Point University is known to many. In less than a decade, he led the institution to phenomenal growth (6,000 students) and significant academic advancement, quadrupling its size and moving it to the number one spot among Best Colleges in the South.
As an American citizen, President Qubein has been the recipient of some of the highest national awards, including induction into the Horatio Alger Association for Distinguished Americans with General Colin Powell, Oprah Winfrey, and the founder of Starbucks, Howard Schultz. He is the recipient of DAR’s Americanism Award and the Ellis Island Medal of Honor, along with four U.S. presidents. He is a member of the International Speakers Hall of Fame and, in fact, has served as president of the National Speakers Association.
As a business leader, he is the executive chairman of Great Harvest Bread Company with 240 stores in 43 states. He serves on the boards of several national organizations including Truist (a Fortune 500 company with $500 billion in assets), the La-Z-Boy Corporation (one of the largest and most recognized furniture brands worldwide), Savista, a leading healthcare company and the Horatio Alger Association Board of Directors.
President Qubein is the author of a dozen books and scores of leadership audio and visual recordings translated into many languages. The Biography Channel and the Amazon Channel both televised his Emmy-nominated life story titled “A Life of Success and Significance.”
We invite you to the 2022 EO Charlotte Signature Event with Dr. Nido Qubein, President of High Point University.
