Speaker bios:

Despina Zanganas

Founder at Despina and Co.

If Despina had to define her life’s work in as few words as possible, these two would make the cut: Female Empowerment. Why? Because Despina is passionate about providing women with the opportunity to make life-changing connections, building communities, and empowering her fellow females to be financially independent through real estate. In 2013, Despina read Sheryl Sandberg’s book, Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead, and was inspired to co-found the Lean In Canada organization. 

She is also the founder of Connect and Bloom a networking coaching consultancy and has a podcast of the same name. Additionally she is the founder of Her Home in TO where she helps women navigate the real estate landscape. 

Despina has been featured on CBC Radio, the Globe and Mail and many other news outlets discussing issues that are pertinent to women.
