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.

In this time of the pandemic causing crises around the world, we’ve seen some skilled presenters step forward to provide excellent examples of leadership because of their ability to deliver vital information in an understandable, conversational manner. Certainly there are many, but we’d like to recognize three people whose styles and approaches stand out to us.April 6, 2020
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?
