The Women in Business (WIB) Committee of the American-Hellenic Chamber of Commerce hosted an exclusive event with keynote speaker Nikolaos Chr. Stampolidis, Professor of Archaeology, University of Crete & Director, Museum of Cycladic Art, on November 14 at the Museum of Cycladic Art in Athens.
Professor Stampolidis spoke on Unearthing the Past to Unveil our Future and inspired the audience through vivid storytelling centered around ancient Eleftherna, presenting lessons of leadership from ancient times and current experiences. He demonstrated how great vision, passion, perseverance, and hard work—against all odds—and multiple connections and networks yielded results following 30 years of following a goal. The collective work of thousands of people throughout the years, under his strong human centric leadership, enabled the creation of an archeological site and museum that is considered a jewel, adding value to Crete and our country.
The motive for this great work has not been the discovery of archeological items per say, but rather the understanding of how humans have lived, worked and perished for the 4500 years that Eleftherna flourished. The greatest reward, he said, is how his work has influenced the life of all those contemporary people that have been touched by this effort.
The event was supported by MetLife.
