On 29 March 2019, End2End Events officially welcomed diverse Small Business Community Members and Entrepreneurs in Melbourne to an Exotic Egyptian Afternoon Tea in our new home in Melbourne’s Moorabbin.
It was a fabulous afternoon dedicated to celebrating women and men in Business who are doing amazing things in their business communities. The event style was based on End2End’s Fusion Networking, Event Concept launched in Canberra in late 2015.
We loved sharing our passion for bringing people together to connect over tea, food and entertainment whilst highlighting the essence of hospitality Egyptians are renown for. With a tribute to End2End’s Founder – Marwa Rida’s grandmothers during International Women’s month. Marwa shared a story of belonging and what it was like to visit her grandmothers in the small coastal town of Port-Said in Egypt during her summer holidays. The afternoon was a tribute of heritage, culture, community and strong women role models and attracted many diverse women and men in business to connect and share their stories on belonging and how they are connecting with their communities, whilst staying true to themselves, their business aesthetics and what they stand for. With a strong focus on diversity and what community means to each individual, in light of Harmony Day celebrations.
The Team at End2End Events facilitated meaningful connections for attendees of Exotic Egyptian Afternoon Tea. The special event experience built with a purpose of fostering deeper conversations was an event to be remembered.
