Claim The Stage Programs

Eleni Kelakos

Eleni Kelakos, The Speaker Whisperer®, uses theater tools learned as a professional actress in NYC and Hollywood to help executives and business owners create and deliver presentations with greater authenticity and impact.

When she’s not coaching individuals or conducting trainings for companies like General Motors, Allstate, or Little Caesar’s pizza, Eleni practices what she preaches, raising the roof with her keynote presentations at conferences and events.

Clients who experience Eleni’s Claim the Stage presence and presentation programming feel more confident, clear, and relaxed when they share their big idea or service in high-stakes spotlight moments. 

Reflecting her passionate desire to encourage more women’s voices in leadership and on speaking platforms, Eleni recently released her second book, Claim The Stage! A Woman’s Guide To Speaking Up, Standing Out, and Taking Leadership.

On a personal (and somewhat ironic note), she sang the national anthem at Shea Stadium in front of 34,000 Mets fans… and forgot the words! (The Mets won anyway).
