About Us

Who are flowcultura?

flowcultura Ltd was founded by Marianna Karagiannakis in 2015, when she fled the corporate world to help create ‘flow' in business through people. 
 
‘Flow’ is a concept named by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi and defined as "the mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement and enjoyment in the process of the activity."  During this optimal experience they feel "strong, alert, in effortless control, unselfconscious, and at the peak of their abilities.”  Achieving this state requires one to find the activity enjoyable and stretching (but not too much), with clear sight of the end game or goal. 
 
‘Cultura’ is the greek word for Culture. Marianna is Greek Australian, hence the tip of the hat to her greek heritage. She was born and raised in Australia and moved to the UK some years back
 
Now imagine creating an organisation that for the most part is in this state of ‘flow’.  This is flowcultura's dream, and why we love to partner with organisations such as yours to help create this state and enable you to make your mark on the world. 
Hi. I'm Marianna. Nice to virtually meet you.
