8 - Conferences and Workshops
How do you define
or make a distinction between conferences, seminars and workshops?
Conferences: a meeting for consultation,
exchange of information, or discussion, esp. one with a formal
agenda and includes printing materials and giveaways.
Seminars: is a small meeting for a group of people discussing
a certain matter and exchanging information
Workshops: a discussion group that emphasizes the exchange
of ideas and the demonstration and application of techniques,
been the most significant events in the timeline of the project
and what made them particularly important?
One of the most significant events in the timeline of the project
was the Ministry of Education ceremony, were certificates have
been distributed among the graduates and the number of participates
was 200 and the presence of Dr. Ahmed Gamal El Dein Moussa the
Minister of Education and General Mohamed Helal the Program Director
of TVET Reform Program made it more significant.
The attendees of this conference all agreed that the TVET project
was considered a motivator for them as it increased their experience
and raised their training level which qualified them to be on
the same level as the requirements of the international labour
market. This testimony during the graduation ceremony from several
participants showed the obvious success of the TVET programme
and its achievements in front of a large number of top VIPs such
as the minister and at the same time the press which guaranteed
exposure on different levels.
Another very significant event was MEDA Finance, 20-21 October
2010, where the number of attendees was more than 300 from various
Euro-Mediterranean countries. Meda Finance 2010 was inaugurated
by top VIPS as Mr. Galal El Zorba, Chairman, Federation of Egyptian
Industries, Mr. Ahmed El Wakil, Chairman, FEDCOC, Mr. Hazem Hassan,
Chairman, CEEBA, H.E. Marc Franco, EU Ambassador, Head of EU Delegation
and, H.E. Dr. Ahmed Nazif, Former Prime Minister of Egypt. The
significant importance of the participation of the TVET program
was that it not only gave the program exposure to public and private
entities on a local but also on an international level.
Is there any review
of the participants experience at any of our events? If so, what
is the summary of the feedback?
(I’d like to get an understanding of how the events impact
the public and engage our stakeholders)
Overall, most of the reviews we received were satisfactory, participants
were pleased with the content of the conferences/ Seminars/ Workshops
as well as with the speakers invited to the event. They also mentioned
that such events were important as it communicates the achievements
of TVET to the public and the business community.
