Olga Kyriakidou


"If you can't laugh at yourself then you are missing the biggest joke of your life," said once Charles Alden Smith.

Humour, creativity and self-directed learning was and still are the tools to develop my competences as a trainer both at a local and international level, a youth worker, a project manager, an entertainer and chief in children and youth camps, a photographer, and a clown.

Olga Kyriakidou has 5 references for past work as a trainer.
