About the Director
Directing the Orthodox Speakers Bureau is Cynthia Damaskos. Cynthia comes to the OSB with over 30 years of business experience with an emphasis on sales and customer service. After training under three professional speakers who specialized in Presentation Skills, Cynthia became a presentation trainer herself, and enjoys coaching speakers.
After studying church history, doctrine and theology for over 4 years, she knew Orthodox Christianity was the answer to the first part of her journey, and continues the journey to this day by striving to grow in her walk with God….wherever He leads her.
Growing up in the Pacific Northwest (AKA God’s country), Cynthia enjoys adventures in the great outdoors including skydiving, rock climbing, whitewater rafting, fly fishing and hiking. Now living the Midwest, her daily adventures tend to be on the tennis court and in the kitchen. Having returned recently from a culinary school in Italy, she strives to fulfill the constant demand for Italian and Greek cuisine at home while making time to learn the ancient art of iconography.
Despite her extensive sales experience, Cynthia stresses that the Orthodox Speakers Bureau is all about service. Serving the host and the speaker by facilitating a relationship that ensures successful events is her purpose.
