HIGH POINT, N.C., Feb. 27, 2014 – Bestselling author and internationally renowned leadership expert Dr. John C. Maxwell will headline High Point University’s 2013-2014 Spring Cultural Enrichment Series when he visits the HPU campus on March 19 for two events.

The first event, “A Conversation with HPU President Nido R. Qubein,” is a question and answer session that will be held at 4:30 p.m. in the Hayworth Fine Arts Center. He will also deliver a presentation to the HPU students, faculty, staff and guests at 7 p.m. in the Hayworth Fine Arts Center. A limited number of complimentary tickets are available for the general public by contacting 336-841-9209 or reservations@highpoint.edu.

Maxwell joins a distinguished line of thought leaders who have participated in HPU’s Cultural Enrichment Series. They include: bestselling author and marketing pioneer Seth Godin; Malcolm Gladwell, one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People and author of four New York Times bestsellers; New York Times columnist and bestselling author Thomas Friedman; bestselling author Mitch Albom; Chris Gardner, the inspiration for the acclaimed movie “The Pursuit of Happyness”; and Steve Forbes, CEO of Forbes and Editor of Forbes Magazine.

Maxwell is the founder of The John Maxwell Company and EQUIP, organizations that have trained more than 5 million leaders in 185 countries. Every year, he speaks to Fortune 500 and 100 companies, international government leaders and organizations such as the United Nations, the United States Military Academy at West Point and the NFL.

A New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Business Week bestselling author, Maxwell has sold more than 22 million books including “The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership” which sold more than 2 million copies. “Developing the Leader within You” and “The 21 Indispensable Qualities of a Leader” each sold more than 1 million copies.

“John is an internationally respected authority on leadership and human development,” says Dr. Nido Qubein, president of HPU. “His message will be substantive and enlightening for our students who are preparing to become leaders themselves.”
