For the First Time in Egypt: Egypt’s Entrepreneur Awards Hosts Robin Sharma

On 10 June 2022, the Canadian writer will kick off EEA Talks at St. Regis Cairo Hotel's Astor Grand Ballroom

Launched by the founder and CEO of ievents, Amr Mansi, in 2021—Egypt’s Entrepreneur Awards (EEA) is a platform dedicated to celebrating and fostering Egypt’s rising entrepreneurs while connecting them with veteran risk-takers and experts from various industries.

Founder and CEO of ievents, Amr Mansi, speaking at EEA’s shortlisters’ event this year.

The first edition was impressive, but things are about to get even more intense this year! Robin Sharma, the internationally best-selling author and leadership expert, is coming to Egypt for the first time on June 10 thanks to the EEA’s latest initiative: EEA — Talks.

Why Launch EEA — Talks?

The EEA – Talks is an event launched by EEA this year. Aimed at combining the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Egypt with talents from abroad and the public, it shall host a variety of experts from around the country and abroad.

Focusing on topics like leadership, entrepreneurship, sustainability, and achievement, these talks will revolve around knowledge-sharing and in-depth dives into diverse topics that pertain to Egypt’s entrepreneurs.

Additionally, it’s a golden opportunity for up-and-comers to get the spotlight and exhibit their product or service— and the challenges they face with it—to well-established entrepreneurs and their peers. This should be accomplished by an exhibition center for startups at these talks.

According to EEA, the talks are centered around listening, learning, and growing with the purpose of sparking actual social impact.

The plan currently is for it to take the shape of panel talks and feature keynote speakers. And to stay true to their core vision of celebrating the people of now, the talks will be open to the entirety of the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Egypt and not limited to EEA’s community alone.
