David Nour is a growth strategist, thought leader and global keynote speaker on Relationship Economics®, the concept of the quantifiable value of business relationships. Through his best-selling books, compelling speeches and valuable consulting, Nour demonstrates how relationships are the greatest off-balance-sheet asset any organization possesses, large or small, public or private. He is a popular speaker and delivers over 50 global keynotes a year explaining the hidden assets of relationships, and the art and science of investing in them.

Nour demonstrates the correlation between succinct strategies, visually illustrated and clearly articulated, proactive relationship mapping and business impact such as time to market, engaged employees and reduced turnover, creating and sustaining exceptional customer experiences, and driving profitable growth. Often challenging entrenched status quo mindsets about certain personality types or functions which seem to excel at relationship development to get to the core of what drives success, David’s Co-Create approach is a win/win scenario that, without exaggeration, will define the evolution of individuals, teams, and organizations.

He is CEO of The Nour Group, Inc., a consulting firm that advises top global leaders and boards of corporations, associations and academic forums on disruptive innovations to fuel their growth. The Nour Group, Inc., has worked with leading global companies such as Disney, Cisco Systems, Deloitte Consulting, Hilton Worldwide, HP, IBM and more. As a speaker, Nour examines business relationships, social and mobile disruptive technologies and adaptive innovation. His keynotes have been heard at top industry summits like Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, IBM Smarter Commerce Global Summit and Marriott Annual GM Conference, among others.

During David’s presentation, our audience of more than 700 elected officials and city staff members were extremely engaged, as evident by few distracted mobile users or anyone who left the session early! He used appropriate humor, was personable yet thought provoking in conveying his ideas. Needless to say, David’s presentation was the buzz of the conference long after his session. – Bryan Silbermann, CAE – President & CEO Stefano Bertuzzi, Ph.D, M.P.H. – Executive Director Michael Sittig – Executive Director, Florida League of Cities, Inc.
