About Nadim Saad
Nadim is a charismatic and relatable speaker who inspires audiences with engaging professional and personal experiences, drawing from his experience as a father of three, as a parenting and relationship coach and as serial entrepreneur with 4 nationalities who lived in eight countries on three continents. His key areas of expertise are parenting and mental health and wellbeing.
He has written 4 parenting books to help parents find effective strategies to get the best out of their children and 3 books to support children’s mental health and wellbeing.
With 4 nationalities (he is Lebanese, Mexican, Greek and British), and having lived in eight countries on three continents, Nadim has an extensive overview of the different parenting and educational systems. In all these places, and across the numerous countries where he has worked, he’s identified the same flaws in the education system and in the way children are parented.
Children are still not taught the life skills and emotional skills that they need to navigate this ever-complex world and the education system is failing to teach them how to deal with the increasing pressures they face.
This is what made him passionate about helping parents have a better understanding of their children’s needs as well as help children develop the tools they need to face life’s challenges.
Nadim founded The Happy Confident Company and the Happy Confident Movement, to develop cutting edge programmes and products for children, schools and families to better prepare them for this new world.
His Happy Confident Me Journal series have sold more than 200,000 copies worldwide. He has been working with renowned therapists and teachers for over a decade, drawing from the latest research in child psychology and neuroscience to develop a parenting and whole school wellbeing programme that’s already impacted positively the lives of over 100K families.
He is a regular speaker on parenting themes for leading companies such as Google, HSBC, Barclays & Morgan Stanley, and he has been featured in leading media publications including Sky News, The Sunday Times, The Telegraph, The Guardian and the BBC.
He holds an MSc from EAP-ESCP and an MBA from INSEAD.
