Eliot M. ShapiroCo-founder

Eliot M Shapiro of EMS CommunicationsThe second co-founder of EMS Communications, Eliot has spent over 20 years building the communication skills of both teams and individuals as a trained facilitator and presentation coach. He is often described as “the good cop,” denoting the way his coaching style complements Eric’s “tough love” approach as the two work together to build clients’ confidence in their abilities.

Before EMS, Eliot left a career in sales to earn his MBA in Marketing at the University of Illinois at Chicago, where he then taught as an adjunct professor at the Graduate School of Business. His passions for mentorship and public speaking began at an early age when he watched his father deliver sermons as a rabbi, and he continues to engage those passions as a frequent conference speaker, religious school teacher and avid networker.
