Leadership presence keynote speech – PERFORM AT YOUR PEAK

Great actors and great leaders are remarkably alike.

This leadership presence keynote speech identifies the similarities between great actors and great leaders. Both radiate a confident and magnetic vocal, physical and energetic Transformational Presence (unique executive presence, leadership presence, stage presence) that inspires others to trust them, and to follow them.

Both consistently perform at their peak under immense pressure and scrutiny, managing with ease the fears or negative beliefs that could stop them from sharing their wisdom, message, or big idea with others.

And both are committed to practices that, over time, and with conscious application, develop presence mastery.

Presence mastery– the ability to be consistently real, relaxed and radiantly present in performance situations (meetings, conversations, presentations) when the stakes are high and eyeballs are on you—is something I struggled mightily to achieve during auditions as a young actress in New York City. For a long, tough, time, my auditions were woefully inconsistent, with a yo-yoing level of presence and performance.

Fortunately, master acting teachers came to my rescue, teaching me methods to expand my unique presence, manage my performance anxiety, and perform under pressure with a greater degree of confidence and consistency. Those methodologies changed my work, and my life. And they formed the foundations of the 5 Principles of Transformational Presence—the path to presence mastery that I teach business leaders today.

In this interactive, leadership presence keynote speech, I share those methodologies and the stories that shaped them, encouraging audience members to commit to the path of presence mastery, so they can speak, lead and share their big idea with a confident, consistent presence that moves hearts, minds, and mountains.

PERFORM AT YOUR PEAK is always customized to reflect your organization’s needs and focus.

This program is perfect for:

  • Visionary leaders who want to use their words to change their world and convey their big ideas with confidence.
  • Senior management and developing leaders who want a greater clarity, confidence and authenticity in their leadership presence.
  • Managers and women leaders who are struggling to “own the room” in meetings or presentations.
  • Sales teams seeking to raise the level of confidence & consistency in their pitches/presentations.
  • Authors, consultants/coaches and thought leaders who want to increase their visibility by confidently sharing their big idea with large audiences.
  • Organizations dedicated to advocating for a global policy, cause or mission.

The audience will leave with:

  • The 5 Principles of Presence and Performance Mastery.
  • Techniques that minimize “The Lies That Bind” (limiting beliefs/behaviors) so they can perform with confidence under pressure.
  • An Actor’s methodology to help them identify their Unique Leadership Brand.
  • The Daily Presence Practice for ongoing development of master-level presence.
  • The 4 Questions to assure continued development and growth.

Eleni’s professional assistance in creating my keynote was invaluable. Her expertise as an actress helped take my signature stories from satisfactory to spectacular! She provided a clear and compelling model for structuring my presentation that made the process much less overwhelming. I especially appreciate how she honed and tweaked my ideas while keeping my authentic voice intact. She provided excellent advice on where to trim my content and which points to accentuate to make my presentation more powerful. Eleni was a joy to work with and went above and beyond to bring my vision to fruition. My keynote was a smashing success thanks to her expert coaching. My time spent with her was more than worth the investment.
