surpassed the theoretic procedures and presented their own experiences from their entrepreneurial lifetime. Examples on how to face everyday problems, the greek economical environment, FAQ’s on general strategic planning and finally the methods we have to trust for our own companies.
Dr. Dimitris Koutoulas presented some of his clients’ choices on all the levels of the touristic sector on islands and mainland of Greece.
David Amerland based on the expansion of THYRATRON S.A, on three new markets (Latin America, North America and Australia) analysed the ratio of innovation to passion and how this ratio can really make the difference.
Fianlly Mr John Labropoulos gave his own hints and tips based on his own experience from MOTORAID’s first decade of existence and how he managed to success and expand to Athens with a second “physical” shop.
What really made the difference in this event were the open workshops after the speeches, where teams were created based on the business sector interest of the attendees. They analysed their own scepticism, asked their own questions and shared with the speakers their own fears as well with their own opticism
The results of these workshop tables were gathered and announced by the attendees themselves to all the audience and an analysis took place via dialogue.
The p-consulting.gr team is still at all interested entrepreneurs to be disposal and is already preparing such events, in order that entrepreneurship can be empowered in Greece.
