2019 Speaker Line-up
Although his parents, who came to the US when he was 14 speaking only French and Arabic, had planned for Nabeel to become a medical doctor, he had an early interest in a design career, and when his pre-med college year ended in summer, he’d tirelessly return to his part-time job as a busboy at Bareburger. Until the company decided to hire him full-time as Director of Marketing and promote his career. Since then, he’s developed all the marketing strategy and outreach and has sprung Bareburger from the small startup that it was to an international chain established in 8 countries, with 47 locations.
“Our motto is to sell the most delicious burger, from the most sustainable partners, in a restaurant that will make you feel good. Being a small company, I have to focus on technology that is innovative, affordable and most importantly measurable. I rely heavily on AI and automation.”
He’s a regular guest writer at Forbes and speaks at TedX.
