Hello, there! Enjoying fall in Cyprus?🍁Hope you are! And I am here today to tell you some great news about an upcoming event this Thursday October 12th, organized by L.I.F.T. association. That is definitely one not to be missed by any aspiring female professional or entrepreneur. Two award-winning girl bosses will share their insights and hold a group discussion that could take your career to the next level.

Two award winning female professionals  – Despina Panayiotou Theodosiou and Amani Vernescu – join us and lead the discussion on cultural differences and ways these affect us in the workplace.
