Christina is the full package: trustworthy, hands-on, motivated and a great team member. We've worked together on the UEFA Champions League fan engagement event in Rio in 2019 and, since we met, she immediately became my "reference". Her international experience turned her into a very easy person to deal with, and broke barriers of professional and personal conviviality. I really look forward to working with her!!

Δούλεψα με την Χριστίνα για τέσσερα χρόνια από το 2015 έως το 2019 με την ιδιότητα μου ως συνιδρύτρια και διευθύνουσα σύμβουλος του Reload Greece.


Η Χριστίνα συνδυάζει μοναδικές δεξιότητες και εμπειρίες που ήταν καθοριστικής σημασίας για την ανάπτυξη του ετήσιου συνεδρίου του οργανισμού μας. Υπό την δική της καθοδήγηση και οργάνωση το συνέδριο απέκτησε μια μοναδική ταυτότητα και διεθνή εμβέλεια κάτω από τη νέα ονομασία ‘‘RGConnect’’.


Προσελκύσαμε καταξιωμένους ομιλητές από όλον τον κόσμο από την επιχειρηματική και ακαδημαική σκηνή και αξιόπιστοι οργανισμοί έγιναν συνεχής στρατηγικοί εταίροι και υποστηρικτές μας.


Η δημιουργικότητά της, η αφοσίωσή της και η σκληρή δουλειά της είναι στοιχεία που την χαρακτηρίζουν. Συνιστώ τη Χριστίνα για οποιαδήποτε πρωτοβουλία και επαγγελματική συνεργασία που θα αποφασίσει να αναλάβει και είμαι βέβαιη πώς ότι και να κάνει θα είναι επιτυχιμένο.

CEO (2015-2019) & Co-Founder, Reload Greece

I had the pleasure of working with Christina in the context of two conferences of Reload Greece in the autumns of 2016 and 2017. Christina was absolutely instrumental for the organisational success of both conferences. The first and foremost impression is Christina’s professionalism. She is swift in responding to requests; she is very pleasant and always works with a smile; she is approachable and always accessible; she delivers and finds solutions to problems irrespective of the degree of difficulty; she is very imaginative and sociable as a person. And what really stands out is that she is dedicated with any task she takes on and gives it her 100%. She is always on top and ahead of things. What else can one ask for?

Director, South East European Studies Programme, University of Oxford

Our conferences are very much a team effort and require a lot of coordination with over 50 international markets. Christina did a great job of connecting all the moving parts and keeping the stakeholders on track, on time and on budget. Her international background also enabled her to communicate efficiently and effectively in the different countries she organised our events in. Christina was diplomatic and tactful when dealing with high profile speakers, celebrities and VIP guests - always keeping her sights on the most successful execution of the event possible.

I worked with Christina on the London Indian Film Festival for over four years. She is a delight to work with. Her organisational skills and attention to detail is amazing.  Her passion and charm is a bonus. She is exactly the kind of person you want to trust your event with, you want her on your team.

​I have been privileged to work with Christina for a number of years in association with the London Indian Film Festival. With a wealth of experience in marketing and promotion, Christina aided our sponsorship promotion and ensured maximum exposure for Excel Executive. With the experience comes the flair and passion, plenty of it and I would have no hesitation in recommending working with Christina. 

Martin Williams

National Business Development Manager, Citysprint

Christina was instrumental in the success of the Reload Greece Conference 2016 as she was able to perfectly manage the entire event lifecycle from inception to execution. With her unique negotiation skills and resourcefulness she was able to negotiate with the different service providers keeping the project on time and within the limited budget that she was given. As the Conference Producer, Christina was always staying on top of the different priorities and was able to simultaneously and proactively manage a number of different stakeholders, reach out and recruit speakers from the other side of the world and report back to the management team with openness and clarity. Finally, using her project management skills, she was able to work smoothly with the rest of the team, clearly delegate tasks to volunteers on the event day, thus delivering a flawless event. I would strongly recommend Christina as an Events Project Manager

Member of the Board of Trustees, Reload Greece

​Christina did an excellent job project managing the transformation of two unused retail spaces in one of our flagship 5-star hotel properties into a gallery and salon. Meticulous about the planning phase, she took the time to research the brief and understand our goals. She remained calm under pressure, taking swift and confident action to solve any problems that arose. One of Christina's assets is her ability to communicate clearly and manage people with aplomb. Her energy and positive attitude also make her a pleasure to work with and I would not hesitate to recommend her.

Christina is a great asset to our team. She is meticulous, highly organised, and gets results. Since she joined the festival to lead our sponsorship efforts we have seen a steady increase in sponsorship and an almost 100% retention rate. Christina is a born people person who puts in the time to build genuine relationships that ensure lasting and invaluable partnerships over time. She is also an upbeat member of the team who brings her New York experience and flair to what she does which makes her a dynamic member of any team.

I have worked with Christina for over a year now and she is a true professional and a pleasure to work with. Her organisational skills, alongside her energetic, personable nature, creates an environment where everyone she comes into contact with is confident and excited about the event she is planning. Christina's proactive nature and meticulous planning abilities, mixed with her confidence and vibrancy make for a fantastic team player, and respected team leader who delivers brilliant results. Christina's success lies in her ability to project manage and team manage simultaneously, creating an environment where every contributor to her project is working together under her guidance to create the best results in harmony. All events that I have had the fortune of working with Christina on have been delivered with flawless results and positive feedback from all our attendees. She comes highly recommended!
