Roger Nierenberg - After Dinner Speaker - Awards Host

After a distinguished career at the helm of two American orchestras, Roger Nierenberg emerged as a creative force for innovation in the presentation of symphonic music. For 14 years, he led the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra in Florida, where he succeeded in building one of the great concert halls in America securing a prestigious invitation to the Carnegie Hall Series of Great Visiting Orchestras.


During his lengthy tenure with the Stamford Symphony the orchestra developed a reputation as one of the finest in New England. Nierenberg has guest conducted many of America's most distinguished orchestras and opera companies, has performed at some of the world's most prestigious music festivals, and has recorded with the London Philharmonic Orchestra on Sony Classical Records. His much highly successful collaboration with outstanding guest artists and composers has won high praise.

Nierenberg has also created the highly successful experiential learning event, called The MUSIC PARADIGM, in which an orchestra is used as a metaphor for any dynamic organization. With executives seated among musicians, Nierenberg leads a series of exercises, carefully crafted to address the sponsoring organization's specific issues. The MUSIC PARADIGM provides a creative framework for rethinking leadership style, philosophies, and effectiveness. Since its inception in 1995, MUSIC PARADIGM sessions have been held for many major companies, leading financial institutions, and global consulting firms through the U.S., Europe, Asia, and Latin America. It has been the subject of reports on ABC, CBS, CNN, and PBS and was the sole feature of an hour-long broadcast of the BBC's Money Programme.

Roger is a regular visitor to the UK and can provide a highly stimulating addition to conferences and corporate events.
