The Philo4Thought Hellenic Professional Mentoring Initiative is pleased to present our 2014 Young Professional of the Month Honoree and to mark the anniversary of our annual Founder’s Day celebration!
The goal of our publications is to provide positive, successful role models who will inspire the next generation of young professionals. A preliminary criterion for #YPM candidates is their active engagement in an entrepreneurial initiative or career path. Candidates are typically of Hellenic origin and part of a philanthropic, humanitarian or environmentally conscious field. The most essential qualification they have in common, however, is the spirit and compassion to persevere, and the heart to share their knowledge and experience with others.
Approximately a year ago, we met our esteemed 2014 Honoree at an event sponsored by the Athenian Society of New York. Today, we are honored and humbled to present our interview with Consul Manos Koubarakis of New York, an amazing mentor and advisor to so many. Consul Koubarakis’ journey is not just a narrative of professional success in the complex field of diplomacy and public policy, but of personal fulfillment in the support of the greater Hellenic community.
