About this event

What is TEDxAlbissolaSalon?

TEDxAlbissolaSalon is a bi-weekly gathering in a cozy environment, mainly at my home.

TEDxAlbissolaSalon was born in August 2011 inspired by TEDxSKE Salon (Beirut, Lebanon) , where I was a regular attendee for almost two years! Here Patricia's (TEDxSKE organizer) words about her experience, which explains why we do it: “At first, it was fun, but then I realized that these gatherings were affecting me and the attendees so much! Change was happening, new ideas were born and discussed, people were being more open to looking at the other perspective, from the other side of the coin, people were taking action, and this is where I realized the POWER of TED.”

What to expect?

Drinks, snatches, screening of 3 to 4 TED talks, discussion, hot debate, new ideas, occasional LIVE presentation from attendees, fun, networking, and a lot more, depending on what you make out of it :)

TEDxAlbissolaSalon aims at opening people's horizons, triggering mind-boggling subjects, and as a byproduct, regaining the lost art of debate along the way...

We believe that “man’s mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions.” (Oliver Wendell Holmes)
