My Story

polis
Social Media Strategist, Consultant, Instructor and Blogger.

Summary

Started my career in 2003 as a Marketing Manager in the family business Xinaris Home, while doing my Bachelor in Management and Marketing and later on my MBA. I took various roles within the company expanding my knowledge on marketing, management, human resources, business development and acquiring many more skills before starting to teach Social Media in Cyprus through the HRDA.

Being among the first to teach Social Media and understand their importance, I developed my personal blog www.polisxinaris.blogspot.com were I share my knowledge and insights and www.secretcyprustravel.blogspot.com were I share my love for Cyprus through stories, videos and pictures.

Now I consult companies and individuals on how to succeed in the Social Media world as a Social Media Strategist via my new company Digital Bakery Media while still working in the family business.
