Hi, my name is Takis Athanassiou and I’m e-Business & e-Learning Consultant, strategist, trainer, writer, technology & social media evangelist and future entrepreneur! My basic intention is to help you develop yourself and your business! I develop ideas, approaches, methods, resources, assets and tools, that will help you to grow and better your personal and professional life! Why I’m different? Simply because, I pay attention and try to find the best solutions for my clients! This is my personal blog, a place for recording my thoughts and ideas about various subjects. I write on issues related to business, e-Learning, leadership, productivity & effectiveness, management and time management, social media, and tools, while, occasionally, I write about various subjects (I think!!!) of interest. My goal is to create meaningful and readily applicable approaches, ideas, schemes, etc, providing insights, interconnections and tools that, I believe, can create a positive difference in various areas, and empower the people in their everyday personal and professional life.
I’ve been working for over 20 years in the IT sector, as Project Manager, Team Leader and Director in Greek SMEs, focused mainly in areas of IT services, e-Learning and consulting. My main focus is Leadership and Strategy while I help people, groups and companies develop their goals and adjust to the “new brave world” of digital media in order to stay innovative, creative and competitive. In order to do that, I use various enablers (as the entrepreneurship, the technology, the financials, the e-Learning, etc) to empower the people in developing their personal and professional life and the companies to enhance their impact. Today I’m working in the areas of business consulting, e-Learning and social media, while I write, blog and discuss about leadership, business, productivity, personal development, social media and tools that facilitate and support the flawless execution in everyday business and personal life.
