  1. 1. Who is James D. Roumeliotis A visual biographical odyssey What does he stand for? What is his value proposition?
  2. 2. Born to Greek immigrant parents, growing up, I was taught the value of a good education, hard work, discipline, persistency – and integrity.

Roumeliotis Present Residences: Montreal, Athens Citizen/Nationality: Canadian, Greek Languages: English, French, Greek Education: McGill, Cornell, Hard Knocks Occupation: Author, Educator & Entrepreneurial Catalyst…Father
  4. 4. Growing up, I was a restless child who was anxious to reach puberty, become (somewhat) liberated from my parents, and immerse myself in innocent fun. Eventually, as maturity got the best of me, I was eager to prove my capabilities, as well as make a difference. First job: worked as a newspaper carrier at the tender age of 12.
  5. 5. At the age of 15, I started a mobile disco enterprise, together with a couple of buddies. It was my initial taste of starting and operating a business.
  6. 6. Like most self-starters, along the way, I had my share of roller coaster rides. In hindsight, I have no regrets with any of the decisions and calculated risks I took. They tested my courage and perseverance. Along with my education, I accumulated street smarts. Today, this is referred to as the school of “Hard Knocks.” Inference: Be emotionally strong
  7. 7. My first full-time job was in the insurance and financial services industry all through my university studies. - Initially sold personal insurance (life, health, disability, estate and pension planning) for a prominent American life insurance company; - Was propelled to sales management within two years; - Was offered (and accepted) a management position in Dallas, TX with one of the largest financial services firms in the U.S..
  8. 8. Following my success in the U.S., made the bold decision to resign from my management post in Dallas and relocate to Greece on a fresh start. There, I began my career in the merchant shipping sector despite a difficult entry due to a closely knit industry. Ultimately, it led to a yachting brokerage business despite the challenging entrepreneurial climate in that country. As a relentlessly competitive and customer centric individual, success followed shortly thereafter serving discerning clients predominantly from the Middle-east, Russia and the U.S. along with the ownership of a 42ft. sailing yacht and a 90ft. motor yacht thereafter. In 2006, received a three month contract to serve as a logistics coordinator onboard the largest yacht at the time for a Middle- eastern royal family. Mandate was successfully accomplished and extended for an additional month.
  9. 9. Post European experience & book release  In 2007, sold my yachting business share to my partner and returned to Montreal where my business advisory firm was born. Subsequently, made a positive impact for many entrepreneurs -- start- ups and existing businesses alike.  A voracious writer, my blog grew to an average of 15,000 unique visitors annually since its inception in 2010 and my book was released in 2012 with a solid fan base.  In addition to consulting, I coach, mentor and lecture.
