TBEX Athens Created Opportunities & Fond Memories


Hadrians Library in Athens

It seems like it was only yesterday that we were all gathering for the start of TBEX Athens. Since then, we’ve learned a lot about how to perfect our craft and grow our businesses. We’ve made new friends, connected with those we don’t see often enough, shared some food, drinks, and laughs. We wandered the ancient ruins of Athens, strolled its streets, and sat in its cafes. We fell in love with this ancient city’s past and present, and hope that, in some small way, we can play a part of its future.

Perhaps Demosthenes, an orator from the 4th century BC said it best:  “Small opportunities are often the beginning of great enterprises.” We hope your time at TBEX provided just that.

If you wrote about your time at TBEX, your time in Athens, one of the many pre and post events around the city, FAM trips, or personal exploration around the rest of Greece, we’d like to include your story in our TBEX Athens round up. Please email your link to Mary Jo or leave a link in the comments of this post (which will be deleted after it is added). Please be patient as it will take awhile to get all the stories read and listed here.

This is awesome list thanks for compiling it!

Just suggestion for future compilation, it would actually be more awesome if you get snippets of quotes from the posts so that it helps us know which blog post to ready more.
