Profile of the Talk
Was Alfred Nobel, known for the world's most prestigious prize ever given, a merchant of death or a benefactor  of humanity? Being married to a Swede and having mastered the language Viviane became acquainted with the mentality of the kind Swedish people. From this experience she also discovered the fragile and sensitive person that is Alfred Nobel who excelled in his scientific as well as his artistic interests. Why and how this genius came to give his most important invention - The Nobel Prize - to Humanity is in my opinion a subject worth listening to.

Viviane Mardelli
An AUB graduate with a Master in Food Processing & Management, Viviane Mardelli is the founder of the Research and Development and the Quality Control departments of
"Wadi Al Akhdar" brands.
She left Lebanon for Sweden with her husband, but rapidly returned with her family to teach at school and share her knowledge with young people. An eternal student, Viviane spends most of her time taking all kinds of courses, scientific as well as cultural. She believes in what Mahatma Gandhi once said: "Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever."
