Many fresh graduates find themselves in huge trouble when they start looking for a job. They can barely express themselves in a manner to impress the employer. This at times costs the best candidate the job because many employers will look for those people who can easily communicate and get messages clearly.
How have you used your communication skills to persuade others to follow your lead?
I have been involved with the Parent-Teacher Association at the local primary school since my elder son first started there. The PTA organises a number of fund-raising events which have involved me in persuading people to buy raffle tickets, display posters in shop windows, donate prizes, etc. Three years ago, the PTA produced a book to mark the school’s 25th anniversary and, as a member of the editorial committee, I helped to decide on the content and format of this book.
The school governors wanted an “official” history, but I represented the PTA in arguing that a collection of reminiscences of past pupils would be more readable and saleable. This was agreed and we then contacted ex-pupils through mail shots based on old school registers and features in the local newspaper and on local radio. The response was excellent and the only problem was in sifting and editing the letters we were sent.
I then negotiated with local printers to find the best quote and
persuaded local shops of all kinds (not just booksellers) to sell the publication.
Cyber Crime Demystified
Many people think that cyber crimes are only limited to huge governmental institutions and huge companies. It is worth noting that it happens to individuals too and the hackers can hack into a simple account like a Facebook account. Cyber crime has evolved from simple crime to very complex crime, keep reading for more information.
According to the “World Economic Forum (WEF) Global Risks 2016 Report”, cyber-attacks rank among the top concerns of doing business around the world. Most cybercrime incidents go unreported, and few companies come forward with information on their losses. That is not surprising given the risk to an organisation’s reputation and the prospect of legal action against those that own up to cybercrime.
Since the cyber-attacks have become more frequent and it is difficult to predict them, the know-how about cyber-security is vital for preparing for this kind of attacks and to protect organisations and its clients. The role of the experts in the field is important in preparing for and preventing threatening situations, but it is also important for all business owners, board members, and managers to have a solid awareness about cyber security.
During this lecture the speaker will address the topics of cyber threats, cyber operations, and cyber weapons as well as building the cyber security in a society will be discussed. The lecture will be presented by Dr. Dimitrios Patsos who is the Chief Technology Officer of ADACOM S.A., a leading Cyber Security solutions provider in EMEA.
The level of the lecture is appropriate for all staff including CEO, directors, compliance officers, risk managers, audit and IT staff, HR staff, and any other person in the organization who should be interested about this so important topic.

This is a free public lecture organized by the Cyprus International Businesses Association (CIBA) and the European Institute of Management and Finance (EIMF).
The lecture will take place on April 13th at 6:00 pm at the Bank of Cyprus Cultural Centre in Limassol. All, who are interested about the lecture, are the most welcome to come, registration is required and you can register by emailing CIBA at firstname.lastname@example.org
