This wonderful conversation with Despina Karatzias unpacks her true passion for joy, helpfulness and contribution.

Early in her life, she had a dream to go into acting, but instead she briefly explored social work, only to realise it was not quite the right fit for her. At age 18 her passion for small business and tourism started to form and this is still where she spends most of her professional focus and energy today.

Join us in this honest and eye opening conversations about the many career-defining moments that took her to the work she does these days!

Some of the things we cover:

➡ Lessons of self-care and literally running a marathon during the pandemic

➡ Working out how our role at work contributes to the bigger picture of the organisation and the community

➡ Creating healthy boundaries and learning the importance of emotional intelligence (sometimes, the hard way)

➡ Finding your voice and taking immediate action when something is a clear ‘no’

➡ Not waiting for someone to give you permission to grow, but take responsibility for your own learning.
