TEDxKhartoum 2012: Fahmi Iskander, Positive Thinking: Why, When & How?

Fahmi Iskander Fahmi manages of one of Sudan's oldest Bookshops and Publishing companies, Marawi Bookshop & Publishers. Shortly after completing a PhD in Psychology in the UK specialising in the Psychology of Marketing, Fahmi discovered another love - music, in addition to his enduring love of books. Fahmi then started seeing links between happiness and a positive attitude that could be achieved by combining music, the understanding of human energy fields and a sharpened sense of awareness!Fahmi believes that success is a result of fruitful team work, so he maintains that when one says "I did this" or "I made that", it is in fact "WE" and credits everything positive in his life to others around him, be it family, friends, students, colleagues or loved ones. He believes that by combining music with the basic human nature of giving and wanting to have fun & just let go has and will continue to be the best way to achieve happiness. Fahmi did his part in spreading happiness through his generosity and benevolence and by volunteering. In 2005, he (along with a whole team of friends) set up in association with the British Red Cross to benefit the Darfur crisis at the time.Since moving to Sudan, he has been an active member of the Khartoum Caledonian Society, a charity that helps handicapped and under privileged children in Sudan. Having qualified as a dance fitness instructor, he now strives to spread a few smiles, happiness, and good health sprinkled with a dash of positive mental attitude...all through MUSIC!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)
