Olga Kiriakidou


"If you can't laugh at yourself then you are missing the biggest joke of your life" said once Charles Alden Smith. I just read it and became my motto...
Humor, creativity and self directed learning was and still is my tools to develop my competencies as a photographer, a clown, a youth worker, an entertainer in children and youth camp, a project manager and a trainer both in local and international level.

Olga Kiriakidou has 6 references for past work as a trainer.
