Eleni Kelakos (pronounced Eh-LAY-knee Keh-Lah-Kohss)

Eleni is a presence and presentation expert, and the Chief Transformational Officer of The Eleni Group, now in its second decade. She uses performance techniques learned over twenty years as a professional actress in New York and Los Angeles to help executives be relaxed, real and relatable when they give presentations.

When she’s not coaching individuals or facilitating trainings at companies like General Motors, Plante-Moran, and Kubota Tractors, Eleni practices what she preaches, empowering people to perform at their peak with her signature keynote presentations at conferences nationwide.

An award-winning, nationally touring singer/songwriter, Eleni has produced and recorded four acclaimed music CDs—I WILL FLY, TO THE BONE, WHERE I COME FROM and TOUCH THE SKY. Her songs have been featured in the film Dispossessed, and danced to by America’s Got Talent semi-finalist Beth Ann Robinson. And she’s sung the national anthem at Shea Stadium for three (winning!) Mets games.

A graduate in both Theatre Arts and Semiotics from Brown University, Eleni is a past president of the Michigan chapter of the National Speakers Association. Her book, Touch the Sky: Find Your Voice, Speak Your Truth, Make Your Mark, was a gold medal winner of the 2014 Global e-Book Awards. She lives happily with her husband, and two constantly shedding cats, in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Eleni’s presentation skill training provided all participants with an opportunity to explore their public speaking abilities in a very unique, comfortable and personable manner. Her acting background, business acumen and intuitive ability to assess and interact with participants was engaging as well as entertaining. She has an incredible way of meeting people where they are and making them feel comfortable with the process.
