HIGH POINT, NC, January 12, 2023 – High Point University President Dr. Nido Kubein will soon be featured in a monthly Business North Carolina magazine interview with leaders included in the magazine’s annual Power List. The first full interview will be available from January 2023.
The program will feature discussions between Dr. Cobain and a variety of the state’s most influential leaders, including CEOs, entrepreneurs and leaders of major organizations. Ben Kinney, publisher of Business North Carolina, said the magazine praised Dr. Kubey in this role for his knowledge of state business leaders, his entrepreneurial spirit, and his outstanding success as a business leader and mentor.
“Business NC is focused on telling the stories of economic growth across our state, and that certainly includes profiling the people who make it all happen,” Kinney said. “There is no one better to probe the mind of the NC Power List than one of its own members, Nido R. Cobbey. He is known as the President of Change College, a business leader, and the host of the PBS North Carolina Show. But it’s his knowledge as a board member at both Fortune 500 companies and small enterprises that 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 publication titled “The Power List.” Recognized leaders on this list are making an impact in their communities and at the regional level. Cobain was featured on Business North Carolina’s 2022 Power List.
“Business North Carolina continues to inform and inspire our state’s economic innovators,” says Cobain. “I am excited to speak with Power List members to develop opportunities for the individuals and communities that make North Carolina a special place to work and live.”
Due to his success in business and his appointment as President of High Point University, Dr. Cobain has become an exceptional and sought-after professional speaker, delivering more than 7,500 engagement events worldwide to corporations and non-profit organizations. He has interviewed international thought leaders including Dr. Condoleezza Rice, General Colin Powell, Steve Woznick, Malcolm Gladwell, Tom Brokaw.
Excerpts from the interviews will be published in Business North Carolina and are available through the magazine’s free email newsletter, the Daily Digest. Sign up for the newsletter here and stay tuned for more information.
