speaker-series-speech-bubbleSpeaker Series continues at ZingTrain

Please join us this Wednesday, April 9, 730am-930am for another thought-provoking session of the ZingTrain Speaker Series.

This week’s session will feature Eleni Kalakos, Chief Transformational Officer of The Eleni Group, whose subject will be: Think Like an Actor, Speak Like a Pro.

Let’s face it. You can’t take your eyes off a baby. That’s because they’re completely and comfortably present in their tiny little bodies, inhabiting the moment like it’s nobody’s business. They’ve got what Eleni Kelakos calls Transformational Presence – a quality that the greatest actors, leaders and speakers exude.

You were born with Transformational Presence. With that ability to truly transform and affect others by being genuinely and passionately present. It’s just grown dim over time, and like the embers of a fire it’s waiting for you to stoke it into full flame.

Ratchet up your Transformational Presence and bring it to your everyday life. Whether you’re a leader who is trying to inspire and engage, or a sales person who is trying to convince, or a presenter who is addressing one person or one thousand – this Speaker Series session is for you.
