HIGH POINT, N.C., June 20, 2012 - The UNC-TV network will broadcast an encore presentation of "High Point University Presents: Malcolm Gladwell and Nido Qubein." The program will air at 10 p.m. on June 25 on the UNC-TV network.
The televised special will feature a lively and fascinating conversation between Malcolm Gladwell, one of Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People and author of four New York Times bestsellers including "The Tipping Point" - which has been a BusinessWeek bestseller since it was published in February 2000, and Dr. Nido Qubein, HPU president, before a live audience on the university campus. It was filmed during Gladwell's visit to campus on Nov. 2, where he also delivered a presentation to students.
"HPU welcomes dozens of thought leaders to campus each year as part of our Cultural Enrichment Series," says Dr. Don Scarborough, vice president for community relations at HPU. "This conversation between Malcolm Gladwell and President Nido Qubein is an impactful program that showcases the minds of two very dynamic individuals. Audiences will be fascinated by their thoughtful discourse."
