I’m sitting in one of the last sessions of the first TEDx event in Jordan, and I just asked the people around me if they consider it a success. The answer, from different people, is an overwhelming yes.
Given the large amount of speakers, and the unfortunate fact that Jordan isn’t exactly a hub of great speakers, I wasn’t expecting a full 12 hours of food for thought.
I am happy to say though, at the end of the day, that aside from a few speakers I can count on one hand, the event was overwhelmingly impressive. The presentations were interesting and very un-cliche, the speakers were well-prepared and comfortable, and the organization was very smooth.
Kudos to the organizers for pulling it off with flying colors.
Jordan’s first TED will be an act hard to follow.
