Looking for keynote speaker to motivate your audience?

Who is Habeeb Habeeb?

Management and Leadership Expert & Motivational Speaker, Habeeb Habeeb (aka H-Squared) has been inspiring audiences on the radio and in person. Habeeb is known for his radio "Motivational Minutes". He is genuine, fun, happy, positive, grateful, and down-to-earth. Habeeb delivers knock-your-socks inspiration time after time. He is engaging, passionate, high-energy and speaks from his 40 years of experience in Management having overcome his humble beginnings to become a business owner, a sought after speaker.

Many have likened Habeeb’s story to the novels of Horatio Alger Jr., where the characters’ rise from humble backgrounds to lives of middle-class security and comfort through hard work, determination, courage, and honesty. A state senator regularly introduces Habeeb with references to Horatio’s novels, noting the fact that Habeeb was the first immigrant to be elected Chairman of the Champaign County Republican Party in the nation’s conservative heartland.

Habeeb loves uniting and inspiring people from various backgrounds and is loved and admired by his peers. He teaches that we must not only “do” good but “be” good and teaches that good human beings with old-time honorable, ethical, and positive behaviors will win, thus debunking the ‘good guys finish last’ myth.

Habeeb has served on multiple Boards of Directors and volunteered with numerous community groups (Habeeb's biography)
