1991–2011, 20 years in the business

banner 20 χρόνια

Speech by Mr. Yannis Rotas for the company's 20 years event.
Hermoupolis, September 3, 2011.

Allow me to welcome you.

Allow me also to address you for the event.

To complete 20 years business activity in South Aegean Region with the 48 scattering islands looks like contest, fascination, love and passion for the job.

To complete 20 years business activity, though, you need more than fascination, love and passion for the job. You also need teamwork. It is useful to underline that the old saying of our people “Dance alone so you can dance as you please” has no room in our modern business environment. On the other hand, teamwork is not a matter of saying, teamwork is a matter of actions, is every day straggling with your self to understand and accept not the role of your self, but the role of your cooperators in the company. The understanding of the role of your self in the company is an issue for your cooperators.

Even the existence of teamwork is not enough to succeed 20 years successful business activity. The necessity of continuing desire for quality should be added up to teamwork and to love and passion for the job. Misplacing one millimeter text by the edge of the page is like misplacing 10 centimeters height of the wall in the room, or like driving with the door of the car not securely closed.

Basic holding link to all these success parameters is continuing, every day and without any interruption consistency. To curry on the business activity of the company you need the appreciation of the society, which can be considered as granted only when you constantly keep up the consistency. Any false step will turn you back to square 1 and needs the same effort to come again to the top.

I shall also grab the opportunity to address to all new business leaders, not only to our company’s new leaders…

Fall in love with your job, acquire vision for the future, make habit the necessity for quality, straggle for meritocracy and transparency and win the appreciation of the society.

All our guests tonight have somehow contributed to our company. Without you we would not be here tonight.

I want to thank you for honoring this event with your presence; I also want to thank all the collaborators and the staff of our company for their tolerance to me.
