Keynote Speaker. Speech Coach. Public Speaking Trainer. IGNITE YOUR CHARISMATIC PRESENCE with Eleni Kelakos, The Speaker Whisperer™

You have a product to sell, a service to provide, a message to deliver... a big idea that can make a big difference in people’s lives.

If only...
You could share your big idea with more clarity and confidence. You weren’t afraid you might fail to deliver on the speaking platform, in the crucial conversation, in the sales meeting. You were able to own the room as a speaker and leader.

That’s where I come in. I use theatre tools to help you be real, relaxed and confident when you speak and lead—techniques learned as a young actress in New York City and Los Angeles struggling to perform at my best in high-stakes auditions. In over a decade as a speech coach, keynote speaker, and presentation skills trainer, I’ve helped countless executives ignite and expand their charismatic presence.

Your voice matters. Use your words to change your world.

CLAIM THE STAGE!™ Eleni’s new book, out now!

Whether you want to step onto larger stages, or share your voice more in meetings or conversations, one thing is certain: Your voice cannot be heard if you choose to silence it. Now is the time for you to claim the stage and step fully into the spotlight as a woman and leader, so you can share your gifts, wisdom and perspective with others.

Through her seven-phase Claim the Stage™ Cycle, you’ll learn tools and techniques to help amp up your confidence, steady your resolve (and your nerves), and prepare you to shine in the spotlight moments that can define your life and your career.

Claim The Stage!™ A keynote presentation for professionals who want to step into the spotlight and maximize their leadership impact.

Do you feel stuck in the wings– unnoticed, unexpressed, and unfulfilled? Is something holding you back from speaking up during meetings, or having a more visible public presence? Do you want to find the courage to step into greater leadership and expand your influence?

In this presentation you’ll learn the seven-step process that propelled Eleni’s shift from waiting in the wings as a frustrated actress to taking center stage as a touring singer-songwriter, presentation skills expert, author, and motivational speaker. And because this program is interactive, you’ll be inspired to drop your coat of invisibility and take the stage in life and work.
