She then moved to Promoters Egypt, where she worked on a variety of event scopes ranging from concerts, corporate events to Expos for example Egypt’s Air Show AVEX.
Moving back to the client side, Khalil joined EFG Hermes as a Regional Events Manager, where she held a diversified portfolio of events, such as The ONE-ON-ONE Conference, Sharm El Sheikh, a 5 day conference with 650 key Global & Local Investors, ACCESS 09, Dubai. EGYPT CAPITAL DAY, LONDON.
Among Khalil’s main achievements is holding the Official Gala Dinner of Economic Development Conference, Sharm El Sheikh 14, where she created a venue from scratch for this event in order to ensure the right experience.

They are also the true example of mentorship where they believe in nurturing young talent.
