You want a social network strategist who will discuss socially-enabled organizations and how listening louder and thinking faster drives success.

Your audience needs to learn a systematic process to identify, build, nurture and leverage strategic relationships.

He bridges the gap between relationship creation and capitalization.


•   Return on Impact — How Will You Lead Differently?
Based on the book, Return on Impact, Nour demonstrates how social media has helped swing the power pendulum to members and customers while many industries and organizations continue to get disintermediated.  Return on Impact isn’t about Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube.  It’s about socially-enabling the organization to listen louder and think faster, so it can respond in real-time to changing market dynamics.  And in the process, adapt new revenue models, reinvent itself and grow – its top line, top talent, and top relationships.

•   Relationship Economics — The Art and Science of Relationships
This powerful keynote, based on the best-selling book, Relationship Economics Updated & Revised, focuses on the quantifiable value of business relationships and a systematic process to identify, build, nurture and leverage personal, functional and strategic relationships.  Of particular value to most audiences are battle-tested best practices in bridging relationship creation with relationship capitalization.

•   Adaptive Innovation — Adaptable Business Models for Changing Market Demands
How do you create greater market value than your competitors?  How do you help your distributors differentiate your products or services?  Simple — disrupt your value chain! Adaptive innovation, by definition, is destructive in its character, open to a broad base of business models, and must be driven by high performing teams.  Teams who are focused on maximizing the current and future capabilities of their respective organizations. In order to create sustainable competitive advantage, companies must develop a relationship-centric culture with the courage to fail and learn from those failures.
