Trying to convince an Italian Tour Operator to start a charter operation program in Olympian Village. West Peloponnese was a totally undiscovered region for the Italians and was very difficult to convince them. It took me 8 hours of nonstop meetings with different people in the company –apart from the phone calls, sales calls during the months before. In the end I realized this ‘nonstop meeting case’ would not get us anywhere, I took my computer and I left the room telling them they want to play and I do not have time for this. I spent the whole night crying over a ‘lost contract’, because I left them and walked out of the meeting room.

Instead, I received a phone call early next day, I met them again and the Italian contract was achieved.
