It's been a while since I last updated the blog... well, actually since I moved back to Greece from Sweden. On that note, I have been asked numerous times how I feel about this "big" change and how different things are for me now. Truthfully, there is a mixture of feelings, but what certainly prevails is happiness and a refreshed and more vivid appetite to take on new challenges and embark on new adventures in all of life's domains. After all, 10 years in Sweden has been a huge chapter in my life and most certainly one I will forever be grateful for. It was time for a change... so I decided to act on it.
Working for the Greek National Tourism Organisation (www.visitgreece.gr) as part of its locally employed staff in its Scandinavia Office (based in Stockholm Sweden: promoting Greece as a tourist destination in the Nordic and Baltic Markets) for 10 years, opened the doors to the wonderful world of tourism, and even more specifically, witnessing - first hand - the amazing potential Greece has to offer every visitor who wishes to experience the country. It was more than a job the way I looked at it and I took it much more personally as it had to do with promoting all the richness of the homeland I love... so getting creative came pretty much naturally.
Therefore, I knew that my next move would still be in the tourism industry. The road was not particularly easy and it certainly took some time before I came across what I intuitively felt would be the Best decision for this new change... but I will cut a long story short and come to today's new reality :-)
As of 1st October 2018, I started working for ALDEMAR RESORTS www.aldemar-resorts.gr in their headquarters in Athens. Aldemar Resorts is one of Greece's leading hotel chains with 30 years of presence in the tourism market as it continuously invests in innovative products and ideas by demonstrating a high level of responsibility toward people, society and the natural environment. Dr. Nikolaos S. Angelopoulos is the founder, President and CEO, and Mr. Alexandros Angelopoulos is the Vice President of this family-owned company which currently employs 1,400 people.
A portfolio of 8 Deluxe Resorts and 2 world-renowned Thalassotherapy Centres in 3 strategic destinations: Crete, Rhodes and the west Peloponnese is what I would like to call only an introduction to this Hotel Group's highlights.
In all honesty, what sets this Hotel Group apart from all the rest, is not just the brilliant portfolio of resorts they have in their acquisition and the unique services they provide... but the philosophy prevailing in all initiatives they undertake and that involves supporting sustainability, the local community, nature and valuing people in the best possible way.
What is most remarkable is that this vision has been put to practice and there is more to come, so stay tuned for what is to be an amazing journey...
ALDEMAR is MORE than just booking a holiday... it's a way of life. :-)
