Online Meeting: BPW Cyprus by Kikoula Cotsapas

Great Short story

Kikoula Cotsapas


When I started working at the family industry years ago we had an Association of juice producers and packers with the five Cypriot industries as members. The Association's annual presidency went in turn to each member.

That particular year it was our turn but my father asked me to take the chair as he was too busy with a couple of new projects at the factory. When I said so at the Directors' meeting I realized that my colleagues were utterly surprised and looked at each other in disbelief. Finally one of them said I should not be bothered with such matters and advised me ''to send instead a man from the office”. I gathered all my courage and answered that I will take the chair and if I felt I could not cope I should step down for one of the other Directors to take over.

I was voted Chairperson of the Association for the next 10 years.
