Said challenges the status quo with his unconventional thinking on everything from communication and creativity to leadership and motivation.

Said also offers innovative training tailored specifically for each client. His training programs emphasize involvement rather than lecturing to create a high-energy learning environment and stimulate the imagination. Those attending Sads programs better retain what they learn, helping improve performance and creating greater value for the company.

Said El Kadri spoke before our group about SUCCESS! Although it was 2 years ago, much of it has stuck with me. Also, I've been to many motivational speakers but he stands out with his creative and energetic way. It was fun but mostly inspiring. It made me challenge myself. I would see him again if I had the opportunity.TC Sferra · Decadence Productions, LLC
