In response to the nomination received by the president of Who’s Who International Award, H.R.H. Prince Nereides made an official statement as follows:
I am very pleased and grateful to receive the honorary Who is Who International Award 2022 at the category World Eminent Man in Global Diplomacy & Finance.
Over the past fifteen years, I have invested my energies and financial resources in social impact projects and I am personally proud of the results achieved. As a cultural diplomat but also a financial strategist, Ifirmly believe in the value of international cooperation and I strive for cultural mediation. People need guidance, the world needs leaders. Diplomacy and finance go hand in hand. No diplomatic effort can be sustained without financial resources, just as the possession and management of national economic resources require the implication of diplomatic strategies. Today the world is politically and culturally fragmented; the European Union itself needs to invest in effective cohesion plans at the political, military and economic levels. Cultural diplomacy, which encompasses the various spheres of mediation, from political to economic, resultsfrom a firm desire to resolve global conflicts and to create a prosperous and peaceful world. I personally learned how to weave significant relationships between the public and the private sectors, institutions and industries, and how to contribute to the flourishment of unexpected and successful relationships among different countries politically or economically divided. Cultural remains at the core of my activities, it is the most powerful means on our hands and the foundation of civilization. Since my youngest age, I have always been inspired by the Greek Odyssey. This ancient story teaches how to be leaders through the theme of remembrance. Ulysses needs to remember in order to go home, just as each of us needs to remember to grow, because life is a great narrative. Those who cannot remember their past are condemned to repeat the same mistakes. The Odyssey also reminds us that leaders deserve our respect, admiration and support for leading well. That is, for fulfilling their obligations and promoting the well-being of everyone in the community. Unlike a tyrant, a good leader cannot succeed at everyone else’s expense. Good leadership, as the Odyssey depicts it, requires and promotes mutual respect and reciprocity which are also the basis of modern diplomacy.
I am deeply honored to receive the Who is Who International Award 2022 in Athene, the cradle of Western civilization, the seminal culture from which derives many of its founding archetypes and ideas in politics, diplomacy, philosophy, finance, science, and art.
As the recipient of this prestigious award, I renew my commitment to consolidating new synergies between our countries and to creating new cultural and economic opportunities.
