It's about time



Sihame El Kaouakibi

She is an absolute #Believer in investing in our most precious capital: the new generation. Sihame El Kaouakibi has been creating success stories for years, whether as CEO of Let’s go Urban and A Woman’s view or by becoming the youngest member on VRT’s board of directors… This female is bursting with energy and positive vibes and loves sharing these with her audience.

Hilja Ibert

With over 20 years of management and leadership experience in the medical sector she has found her rightful place as CEO of miDiagnostics. This charming pioneer and innovator has managed to reduce the time needed to diagnose a blood sample from hours to minutes – it was about time!

Ignaas Devisch

In his book 'Restlessness', Ignaas Devisch, the Ghent philosopher and ethicist, presents an original remedy for an acute lack of time: living abundantly! He joins us at TEDxFlandersWomen to explain his refreshing vision on 'time'. A must for anyone who has a severe dislike for time management.

Yamina Krossa

Deriving strength from personal vulnerability, Yamina Krossa was awarded two Bronze Lions in Cannes. As the driving force behind the Benetiet.be charity, she uses “innercrowd-funding” to fund reconstructive breast surgery for women who want to use their own body tissue following a mastectomy due to breast cancer.

Pascale Platel

Theatre maker, author, actress, dancer, model, media personality ... and now we can add city “guerrillera”, who goes out to battle modern life armed with a wicker chair for the sake of relaxation. Where does Pascale Platel still find the time?

Music Adilia Yip

Born in Hong Kong, Adilia Yip is a music performer and researcher (PhD) at the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp. Her instrument is the marimba, a beautiful gigantic wooden keyboard of the percussion family. Its first prototype was built in the beginning of the 20th century, based on the structural design of its ethnic origins from Africa, Indonesia (gamelan), and Guatemala

It is a TEDx event featuring the webcast of TEDWomen.


October 28, 2016 TEDxFlandersWomen will host its #3 event !

TEDxFlandersWomen is one of the 325 events happening around the globe on October 28 that will expand on the ideas brought up at TEDWomen.

TEDWomen is a TED event curated by Pat Mitchell that focuses on women and women’s issues. TEDxWomen events are TEDx events hosted around the live webcast of TEDWomen, and may also feature local speakers.


We'll broadcast TEDWomen videos on 'premiere"  and we'll spicy the evening with our local program: speakers, special acts, entertainment, surprises and all kind of facilities and good ideas around the theme It's about time. 

Time is personal. We all have the same amount of time — 24 hours a day and yet most of us feel we never have enough. Even with today’s latest inventions, technology, science, we can’t make time or stop time — or can we? Come explore time zones, time travel, time outs and times together!
