Philo4Thought Hellenic Professional Mentoring Initiative is pleased to present our October 2016 Young Professional of the Month! October 2016 marked our 4th Annual Founder’s Day celebration! Our team is pleased to present one of our specially featured Young Professionals of the Month to mark the occasion!
The goal of our publications is to provide positive, successful role models who will inspire the next generation of young professionals. Preliminary criteria for YPM candidates is that they are actively engaged in an entrepreneurial initiative or have made a successful career for themselves, thereby serving as strong role models to the next generation of young professionals. Candidates are typically of Hellenic origin and part of a humanitarian (educational, sociological, scientific, etc.) or environmentally-‐conscious field. Given the gradual expansion of our readership, we currently interview candidates who embrace a specific Hellenic philosophy best described in a word… Philotimo (φιλότιμο). The most important qualifications all our candidates share are the spirit and compassion to persevere, and the heart to share their knowledge and experience with others.
After years of “following” the remarkable community events and musical achievements of Vassilios Chrissochos, we are pleased to be able to present you with an account of his personal and professional journey as a musician, artist, historian, and philanthropist.
