Middle East EQ Summit in Dubai

Ayman Sawaf Keynote Talk

Redeeming the Arab Spring: Igniting a Personal Development Revolution

Everyone generally agrees most of the Arab Spring democratic revolutions have failed. Most young people I talk to and many I mentor in Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, etc. tell me that they have given up on the democratic revolution. What they need is a personal development revolution, building EQ and other life skills such as self esteem, relationships, trust, etc. A personal development revolution is the solution to most of the problems that the Middle East is currently facing.

A lot of government ministers I hear on TV are saying we made a mistake by developing our countries before our people. There are a few countries that now have a minister dealing with personal development (which includes EQ of course). Many high net worth individuals (following lead of Prince Mohammed of Dubai) are now investing in, sponsoring, encouraging, and promoting aligned endeavors.

The opportunity couldn't be greater for professionals in the field of EQ education.

Words of Appreciation

“I'm so fortunate and GRATEFUL. I was in Ayman's Class on Saturday in MidRand - and the day was unforgettable! Ayman's way of mesmerizing story-telling, in-and-between life-lessons that NO money in this world can buy, is 'to die for.' Thank you Ayman. Thank you so very much!!!!”


“On Saturday the 12th of October I spent the day with international visionary entrepreneur and best selling author, Ayman Sawaf from Gloucester, UK. We worked with, and shared our experiences about emotional intelligence with Educators and Principals of Schools in Blue Hills, MidRand SA. What a total DELIGHT it was. Learning, discovering and listening from a MASTER in a relaxed atmosphere!”
