HIGH POINT, NC, January 12, 2023 – High Point University President Dr. Nido Qubein will soon be featured monthly in Business North Carolina Magazine interviewing leaders included in the magazine’s annual Power List. The first full interview will be available from January 2023.
The program will feature conversations between Dr. Qubein and a number of the country’s most influential leaders, including CEOs, entrepreneurs and heads of large organizations. Business North Carolina Publisher Ben Kinney says the magazine envisioned Dr. Qubein in this role because of his familiarity with the state’s business leaders, his entrepreneurial spirit and his prolific success as a business leader and consultant.
“Business NC is focused on telling the stories of economic development across our state, and that certainly includes profiling the people who make it happen,” says Kinney. “There is no one better to explore the minds of the NC Power List than one of its members, Nida R. Qubein. He is known as a transformational college president, business leader, and host of a PBS show in North Carolina. But his background as a board member at Fortune 500 companies and smaller businesses makes him the perfect host for a show that explores North Carolina’s movers and shakers.
”The featured interviews are from Business North Carolina’s annual “Power List.” The leaders recognized on this list have influence in their communities and across the country. Qubein was named to the 2022 Business North Carolina Power List.
“Business North Carolina continues to inform and inspire our state’s economic innovators,” says Qubein. “I am excited to speak with Power List members about further developing the opportunities for individuals and communities that make North Carolina such a special place to work and live.”
Through his success in business and presidency at High Point University, Dr. Qubein has become a prominent and sought-after professional speaker, having delivered more than 7,500 international corporate and nonprofit engagement events. He has interviewed world opinion leaders including Dr. Condoleezza Rice, General Colin Powell, Steve Wozniak, Malcolm Gladwell, Tom Brokaw among dozens of others.
Excerpts from the interview will be published in Business North Carolina and available through the magazine’s free e-mail newsletter, the Daily Digest. Sign up for the newsletter here and stay tuned for more information.
