Project Number two:
Egypt will be host to this year's World of a Woman Conference at Kempinsky Hotel, Cairo on 27th - 29th October, 2015. This conference will be the largest gathering in Egypt to offer a unique platform to harness the collective power of women’s talents, efforts and vision. HUDSON Egypt created the World of a Woman Conference (WWC) with the specific objective of empowering women, enabling them to see themselves as architects of their own lives, able to make a difference to both their communities and world. HUDSON Egypt , working alongside with the Technical Advisory Committee, will bring together business leaders, politicians, high ranking government officials, and entrepreneurs from the Middle East, Europe, Africa, Asia- Pacific and North/ South America region to share their knowledge and experience and to craft the gateway to the future. The three day conference brings together eleven highly acclaimed speakers, three extended panels, five round table workshops, and ten focused mini-seminars on topics of interest to women that address womaneurship, self-empowerment, education, women economics, life/ work balance among other relevant topics of interest. This conference promises to be one of the most exciting events for women serving the globe. Furthermore, the collective wisdom of the advisory committee members, all of whom are willing to share their inspirational stories of success with 500+ professionally motivated delegates. As the promoters seek to inspire and benefit women from all walks of life, this one-of-a-kind event will provide opportunities for networking, professional development and personal growth, as well as helping women to take their next step in business, personal development and philanthropic endeavours. The opening ceremony will be held at the historic Salah El-Din Citadel, and will welcome over 650 highachieving women and officials from over 45 countries.
