High tea for love
Giving women a voice, connecting women and inspiring one another is what drives Olympia Panagiotopoulos
Giving women a voice, connecting women and inspiring one another is what drives Olympia Panagiotopoulos to ensure that we all find the inner love in one's self. Through her business Circle of Excellence, Panagiotopoulos will host a High Tea celebration of life love and inspiring women.
A chance meeting between Panagiotopoulos and a woman in need, would impact upon her in such a way that she changed her philosophy and decided to pass it on to others. It was a time in her life when she was living frenetically, too busy to talk to this lady who looked at her with desperation as she sought someone to love and to share her inner voice. After that, Panagiotopoulos vowed not to dismiss another human again. Soon after, Circle of Excellence was born out of her passion of bringing women together.
"I remember leaving [the woman she met] and thinking about her for days and I heard a little voice inside me say 'what are you going to do about it?'" says Panagiotopoulos on how Circle of Excellence came about.
"The Circle of Excellence is about truth and love, it's about living authentically, the circle represents how we are all one and we are all connected and there's a common thread that brings us all together, and I thought what if I could bring women together who can be real and authentic with one another. We talk about what it is that we love, and support and inspire one another."
Tea with Sofia is about inspiring woman, teaching them how to live a better life, to become all they can and follow their dreams.
"What Circle of Excellence is about is being true to yourself, loving who you are and anything in your life, whether it's a great relationship, family, career, passion - whatever it is - it must start within and loving who you are and knowing you really do matter and you are worthy," says Panagiotopoulos.
"Tea with Sofia is taking the philosophy of Circle of Excellence and delivering it an atmosphere of tea. There's no greater thing in life, than being there for someone and supporting and loving someone. We need to love one another and that love really is the answer."
Tea with Sofia will give women a chance to rid themselves of their masks, be true to themselves and connect with each other. An interactive day, the event will give woman their voice that's deep inside.
Tea with Sofia: A High Tea celebration of life, love and inspiring women will be held at the Garden Room, Level 1, Crown Towers, 8 Whiteman St, Southbank on Sunday 29 April. Tickets are $75.00. For more information and to RSVP contact Olympia on 0409 253 559 or email@example.com
