Those Who Inspire Lebanon – Celebrating 60 Inspiring Lebanese

A country defined by generosity, ingenuity, courageous people and cultural diversity from all points of view. This is Lebanon and the country where we have launched our latest book, Those Who Inspire Lebanon. After one year of meeting inspiring Lebanese women and men from all walks of life and listening to their trailblazing stories, the 28thof June the latest and eighth book of our book collection, Those Who Inspire Lebanon, was launched in Beirut.

The book launch event was a celebration of the 60 Inspiring Lebanese portrayed in the book, our partners from Those Who Inspire Movement, students and all the people and institutions that have supported our project in Lebanon, such as UNESCO. The grand event was held at the ESA Business School.

 

“I just spent around nine months working on Those Who Inspire LEBANON, and I am amazed at how many inspiring Lebanese I’ve met are dedicated to inspire, empower and guide their youth through sharing experiences,” says Alejandro Andrés, Co-Publisher and Director of TWI Lebanon.

Delphine Barets, the Co-Founder of Those Who Inspire and Publisher, explained during the speech she gave at the book launch event that “We know from experience that the right kind of inspiration can change the course of a young person’s life. That’s what inspiration is all about, and we are honoured to facilitate that in any way we can.”

 

Most of the Inspiring Lebanese whose stories, real life experiences and advices to the youth are told in our book have also spoken at the event held at the Auditorium of ESA Business School. Discover the testimonials of Lebanese such as May Chidiac, Ayad Nasser or Michael Haddad here.
