keep it simple and to the point
Hi and welcome to my personal website!
My name is Vasileios Bourmpounis and my slogan is "keep it simple and to the point".
Born and raised on the island of Crete, Greece, I am now living on another island... 7 900 km away, the island of Montreal in Canada.
Educated in three different countries (Greece, Germany, Canada), I hold a Bachelor's degree in Physics with a specialization in Atomic Physics and Laser, a Master of Arts in Education, and a Graduate Diploma in Instructional Technology.
Having worked as technical sales supporter, e-learning developer, instructional designer, adult trainer, workshop organizer and facilitator, private tutor, emotional intelligence coach and instructor...you can bet I LIKE technology and LOVE working with people!
My recent passion is Emotional Intelligence. Although I have been life-coaching unofficially for the last 10 years, it is only since 2009 that I got certified on Emotional Intelligence by MHS. This year I started a pilot project at a private Greek high school in Montreal, where I give weekly coaching sessions to 12th graders on Emotional Intelligence.
Believing strongly that one should develop the body, mind and soul equally, I teach and practice traditional Cretan dances, I practice Karate (black belt: 3rd Dan degree, Shotokan style), I play the lyra (traditional Cretan musical instrument), I study Byzantine music and I practice listening to my emotions.. as our emotions are the gate to our soul.
