Mrs. Despina Panayiotou Theodosiou, Chief Executive Officer of TOTOTHEO MARITIME and President of WISTA International, says that diversity brings innovation and a better future for the industry; thus WISTA’s goal is to continue building opportunities for women in maritime industry. For more sustainable shipping, industry needs to change attitude; instead of considering that sustainability equals with profit, it should focus on understanding stakeholders’ concerns through constructive dialogues and enabling synergies.
Mrs Theodosiou shares one of the best advice she has ever received which has helped her since the beggining of her career, while when someone once told her to ‘give it up’ she refused to take these words into consideration. To the opposite, ‘be ambitious, decide what you want to do and pursue it’, are worthwhile beliefs.
