The word TED is an abbreviation for Technology Education Design, a supporting approved organization with a mission to inspire, empower, and spread the strength of ideas. What was unique about TEDxAlfaisal was; Alfaisal Students were the event organizers and planners.

In a presentation that lasted 7 minutes, Dr. Khaled was depicted his journey of successful life with a speech entitled “Inspiration in Every Moment”, and he was a true stimulator to the audience who enjoyed and learned from every moment he was sharing, entertaining and interacting with the audience.

Dr. Waleed’s speech was unique; as he engaged the audience by presenting 10 ways that every person should follow to be inspired. Quotes, experiences, and knowledge was shared with the audience in an active session leaving the audience with the message that no one should give up and quit, because quitting is the real failing.
