TedX Limassol Conference: Andreas Papdopoulos

Following on from the Ted Conference sponsored by our partners the University Of Nicosia, we’d like to share a few blogs with you this week regarding some of the speakers’ presentations.

First up is Mr. Andreas Papadopoulos.

Before we get into specifics about Mr. Papadopoulos Ted presentation, we’d like to give you a random fact about Andreas; did you know he is in actual fact the man who invented the coating you find on M&Ms? Amazing right?

With that out of the way, let’s get into the specifics about Mr. Papadopoulos’s immensely, heartfelt presentation.

On the surface, the presentation was about how much he loves his home country of Cyprus and most specifically the many beaches that can be found across the island. He has in fact written 2 books about the beaches of Cyprus covering the Famagusta and Limassol areas.

Mr. Papadopoulos told the crowd about these beaches and, looking at them in more detail, the many differences and specific features that was unique to each beach.

With every beach he presented he used the words ‘When you look a little deeper.’.

This of course brings us to the wider philosophical implications of his presentation.

More often than not, we as humans have a habit of skimming the surface but never actually looking at things a little deeper, but the ultimate beauty of things is found in the details, isn’t that so?

Moral of the story?

Don’t always judge a book by its cover, look a little deeper and who knows what you might discover.
