BRIEF INTRODUCTION OF MYSELF

GEORGIOS (GIO) KYRKOS

Well educated professional that he is always striving to achieve his targets by respecting his values. Confidence,self motivation and passion are the 'must characteristics' of a business oriented professional.On 2010 i took the decision to re-brand myself and join hospitality. This challenging business trip is more than interesting and full of valuable experiences.

UPDATE: Since 2011 i have been travelling and working in several countries (Switzerland, Jordan, China, United Arab Emirates, Greece). I have met/interacted with lot's of people in multicultural environments and faced many challenges. I still love travelling and honestly speaking i do enjoy this alternative life style.
