Eliot M. ShapiroCo-founder
The 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.
For many of our clients, working from home while social distancing also means presenting from home. As virtual meetings become the norm for important organizational conversations and planning, how can you make sure your message comes through as loudly and clearly as if you were meeting in person?
EMS Communications is conducting virtual training/coaching sessions to help clients brush up their virtual communication skills and prepare for important meetings, so contact us about scheduling time for yourself and your teams.March 23, 2020
During election night coverage on Super Tuesday, the most interesting presenter we watched talked too quickly, used repetitive gestures, and spoke with a clipboard in his hand. But his energy and his passion carried the day, and even though his message was complicated, he did an amazing job of engaging a TV audience.March 6, 2020
