Seeking an education, Nido Qubein emigrated to North Carolina from Jordan in 1966. He graduated from High Point University and received a master's degree in business from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. In 1973, he started his first business: writing and publishing leadership materials for schools and camps in thirty countries. By 1977, he was giving 200 motivational talks a year. This grew into Creative Services, the international consulting firm he owns today. He is chairman of Business Life in Greensboro; Great Harvest Bread Co., a 218-store national chain; McNeill Lehman, a public relations firm; and Southern National Bank Corp. In 2004, he was named president of High Point University. Since then he has raised almost $70 million for the private university and changed the school's culture with unorthodox methods, such as hiring a “Director of WOW” and arranging valet service for students.
