TEDx Margalla an upcoming Event. Ordinary People with Extra Ordinary Ideas :

Ordinary People. Extra Ordinary Ideas.

A new upcoming event in December 4, 2010 at Islamabad.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event 
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)

About TED

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 25 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. The annual TED Conference invites the world’s leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes. Their talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Al Gore, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani,Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende and UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. The annual TED Conference takes place in Long Beach, California, with simulcast in Palm Springs; TEDGlobal is held each year in Oxford, UK. TED’s media initiatives include TED.com, where new TEDTalks are posted daily, and the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as the ability for any TEDTalk to be translated by volunteers worldwide. TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world are given the opportunity to put their wishes into action; TEDx, which offers individuals or groups a way to host local, self-organized events around the world, and the TEDFellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to become part of the TED community and, with its help, amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.

About TEDx Margalla:
TEDxMargalla finds its name-origin from the beautiful hills of Margalla that surround the Capital from the North and, to date, have served much to the beauty and magnificent landscape of this city.The idea is simple, a platform where people with ordinary origins can come to share and collaborate parts of their extraordinary ideas to form the perfect blend of creation and art with brilliance. The ideas can be about anything from technology, entertainment and design to health, culture and sociology. The objective is to provide the audience with an experience so unique that its taste creates an insatiable hunger for knowledge and information.

The TEDxMargalla isn't just a platform to share ideas rather our aim is to hunt for and market solutions and cures for Pakistan that can help build up the economy as well as develop the minds of the people. Especially in a time when near one-fifth of the country is under heavy floods, we believe is the time to step up, as a nation, and help Pakistan with ideas, solutions and cures, may that be through our words or actions.

Time        :  Saturday, December 4 · 10:00am - 5:30pm 
Location  :  Chancery of the Pakistani Embassy Amaliastraat 8 2514 JC Den Haag, Netherlands

Review of Meetup with Kamran Rizvi

Thursday, November 25, 2010

Meetup with Kamran Rizvi (Kambha), Royal Palm Golf and Country Club, Lahore, Avivons, Syed Kashif ul Hasnain

After a Mega event of Entrepreneurial Conference "Tiecon 2010" at Royal Palm on October 30, 2010, A meetup with Kamran Rizvi was arranged by a very talented guy Mr. Iftikhaar Hussain at Royal Palam Golf and Country Club, Lahore on October4, 2010. We were 3 friends from CIIT,Lahore.The timing was 2.30-5pm. We reached at 2.20pm.. The environment was great. All the sitting arrangement was properly organised. Good registration process confirmation at the entry. After the entry we had warm welcome from the organizer of the event. Before the meetup time started we had a nice networking before the session. As the formal time began all the participants were seated properly.

Business Ideas Competition:
In a very short time we were given a task of preparing a business plan just in 10-15 mins. For this purpose all the students were selected randomly to form a team. A team was formed with all the students who didn't know eachother. A team of 4-6 members was formed and total of 5 teams were formed. so, we had a great time of brainstorming with those who were having total different mindsets. 

Syed Kashif ul Hasnain
Amna Tariq

After just 15 mins we were asked to present that business plan with helping material(A chart  containing name of business, the logo and the message)..So, it was too much difficult as we had to discuss, dicide a plan and then make a chart and display all the idea on it and present it in front of all. The most interesting thing in this activity was that the judge will call the presenter of his own choice. So, this made it more interesting as every team member was trying to have a full grip on idea. Some of the ides were
1-Business Hospital
3- Success Institute
4-Unleashing Potential


Business Plan Competition, Business Plan Presentation

Syed Kashif ul Hasnain, Business Plan Competition, Presentation preperation

After presentation everybody was admired of having good ideas and good presentation because it were all created in just 10-15 mins with unkown team members.And we learned how to interact with like minded as well as different minded people, About the conflicts and how to manage conflicts with unlike minded people(Conflict Management).

Speakers Discussions:
There were 3 speakers including the main body Kamran Rizvi and two other speakers Dr. Amjad and Professor Naeem Abidi

1-Kamran Rizvi Talk:
                        Kamran Rizvi started the talk with 3 main points of making an organization successful
                        i-   Profitalbility: How your work increase any organization profitability
                        ii-  Growth: How there would be growth in that organization with your decission
                        iii- Sustainability: How sustainalbility of any organization increases with your help.
To be successful as there is no shortcut to success so there is need of thorough study. He said," If you want something from any firm, study that organization,research and get what you can do to make that organisation better. You do research, meet employee of that organization to know more about that organization, and after doing such home work then you are capable to go for meeting with the executives which will give positive results.
He added, "If you can't give any tangible thing then you don't need to waste your time as well as others time".

2- Professor Naeem abidi:
                        He talked about personal development. How a person can develop himself to be successful.He added a quotation
"Tum ne Chaha hi nahi Chahnay walo ki tarah( You didn't love me as a lover)" so how it is possible that you can achieve a thing which you never loved. To achieve a thing you need to lose one.As if a man is thirsty he tries to get water.So, without the feelings and passion nobody can be succesful.Naeem sahb has run lots of zero business investment projects in pakistan and specially in Multan city where there almost no support to such persons.Some of his running projects are
1- A training Company
2- A psychological Institute
3-A security company

A very informative thing is that he made a website which is given below. In this website he has uploaded several youtube videos of different scholars of different foreign universities which are paid lectures. But you can access them for free just after registration on the floowing website

After this a session of Q&A started. kamran rizvi gave an example of P&G of how they started there business. He told that P&G started there business with candle and soap because there was need of that time.So providing solution to a problem will led your business towards success. He added,if you start the business of soap and candle even todayyou can earn a lot because of current Pakistan's loadshedding problems and hiegene problems.
