Anyone who has an idea worth sharing is capable of giving a powerful talk. The only thing that truly matters in public speaking is not confidence, stage presence, or smooth talking. It’s having something worth saying.
— Chris Anderson

TEDxAlShuwaikh is a one day bilingual conference which will host 10 speakers, each presenting a unique TEDxTalk, chosen from hundreds of candidates. The event hosts an interactive space where attendees can experience first hand innovations in Technology, Entertainment and Design and have meaningful conversations with our ideas heroes, all leading members of our community with a successful record of innovation in their fields of practice.

On the Day
The event will consist of a series of three sessions of short talks and selected TED talks, from 3 minutes to 18 minutes, broken up by two breaks where speakers, partners and audience engage in creative experiences we co-create.
• There will be absolutely no selling or promoting on stage.
• We will offer live-streaming. Last year our live-stream attracted 1000+ viewers.
• There will be no Q & A, but you are encouraged to chat with the speakers and attendees during our breaks.
