The Cairo Marriott, a proud partner of TEDx Cairo Women

20 Nov

The Cairo Marriott is a firm believer in the vision of TED and decided to continue it’s support by partnering up with TEDx Cairo Women for the second year in a row hosting the talks in their palatial Salon Vert of the Palace as part of their ongoing “Spirit to Serve” activities to support women empowerment.

TEDx events are often synonymous with inspiration. In each of the distinct TEDx talks held across Cairo lies a revelation that, sitting in the crowd, you are left wondering how you lived your life before it. The emotion of the speaker, the dedication and their command of the room only shows the surface of the hard work the speaker’s put in training.

This years theme was “Anchor” which portrays the places, people, or things that make us feel connected to our community.  Your anchor is the thing that feeds your soul and helps you feel settled and grounded.

Not only were the amazing speeches extremely inspiring including one by the famous radio presenter Sherif Madkour but it was also full of artistic performances by singer, Abu, and filmmaker, Fatma Abd Alsalam. Actress and Content producer, Gilan Alaa also added laughter among the audience with her hilarious stand-up comedy performance.

The speakers were able to bring the audience from tears to laughter and back again throughout the talks. Every single speaker had a strong and inspiring message that surely moved and will continue to motivate anyone who sees them.

Stay tuned to see all the videos that will soon unravel on the TEDx Cairo Women website; they are truly worth the wait.

The Cairo Marriott is the official hotel sponsor having their three Marriott branded scooters joining the challenge! For the fourth year in a row, Cairo Marriott chooses to support Cross Egypt Challenge year after year because of its eagerness to promote the destination; Egypt.


The challenge began from the Mediterranean’s largest seaport city, Alexandria then headed east to Port Said, one of Egypt’s most busy port cities and the gate to Africa, with the final destination being Cairo to end the season under the great Pyramids of Giza!
