David Nour has spent the past two decades being a student of business relationships. In the process, he has developed Relationship Economics® – the art and science of becoming more intentional and strategic in the relationships one chooses to invest in. In a global economy that is becoming increasingly disconnected, The Nour Group, Inc. has worked with clients such as Hilton, ThyssenKrupp, Disney, KPMG and over 100 other marquee organizations in driving profitable growth through unique return on their strategic relationships. Nour has pioneered the phenomenon that relationships are the greatest off balance sheet asset any organizations possess, large and small, public and private.
He is the author of ten books translated in eight languages, including the best-selling Relationship Economics – Revised (Wiley), ConnectAbility (McGraw-Hill), The Entrepreneur’s Guide to Raising Capital (Praeger), Return on Impact (ASAE), and the newly release CO-CREATE: (St. Martin’s Press), an essential guide showing C-level leaders how to optimize relationships, create market gravity, and greatly increase revenue.
As a senior executive at an association I have heard and hired many speakers and not all have hit the mark each time. However, from the first time I engaged you on short notice through subsequent engagements following you have always hit the mark and exceeded my expectations and most importantly, those of the audiences you have addressed for us.
I heard you speak at the ASAE Annual Meeting in Atlanta. I found you to be a gifted professional speaker and dramatically more insightful than most typical associated-related presenters. During our introductory lunch, you provided ample value in your understanding of our growth challenges and piqued my curiosity to seek your advisory services.
