Dr. Iris Efthymiou Egleton is an author, keynote speaker, researcher, and mentor whose wisdom, multifaceted background, and compassion have all earned her reputation as a visionary. With publications spanning a wide range of topics (parenting, the environment, politics, healthcare, wellness, and everything in-between), she firmly believes in the power of combining different disciplines to arrive at a more well-rounded conclusion perspective.

Iris has worked as a college director and created her own Public Affairs consultancy. She worked with politicians, Diplomats, entrepreneurs, academics, journalists, and spoken at the UN Headquarters in Geneva. In recent years, as her priorities changed for various family reasons, she has focused more on publishing a number of papers and written 11 books.


She has been an active member of the Board of Academics, Director for International Relations of the Hellenic Association of Political Scientists (HAPSc) and currently President of the Interdisciplinary Committee of HAPSc, and member of the Board of Womanitee. She is also a Scientific Associate of the Laboratory of Health Economics and Management (LabHEM) of the University of Piraeus. Her breadth of knowledge and research-based approach give her an ability to analyse some of the major issues facing humanity in a fast changing world.

Iris believes in equal opportunities, uniqueness, and the normality of imperfection!
