Reframing Success for the Female Professional: Find Your Confidence and Take the LeadSuccess is about daring to do what we want to do and be who we are, insists Agapi Stassinopoulos, author of Wake Up to the Joy of You: 52 Meditations and Practices for a Calmer, Happier Life. An empowering voice for both women and the men who support them, Agapi connects and moves her audience with high energy, wit, and Greek wisdom.

How to Create a More Mindful Life with Renewed EnthusiasmWe live in a world that forces us to stay online around the clock, which has led to an epidemic of sleep deprivation, burnout, and stress. In doing so, we are losing our ability to manage and nurture those deeper connections that matter most, including those at home with our families, in social settings with friends, and in the workplace with colleagues. Drawing on the latest groundbreaking neuroscience and examples from leaders across areas of specialization, Agapi Stassinopoulos illustrates the relationship between well-being and performance by showing how microscopic daily habits can reverse this epidemic. She refers to the wisdom of her Greek ancestors who asked the question, What is a good life, and what is it like to live a life that we value? In these talks, audiences will learn strategies on how to change erroneous beliefs and how to start prioritizing their personal well-being so that they can tap into a more successful and fulfilling life.
Unbinding the Heart: A Dose of Greek Wisdom, Generosity, and Unconditional LoveIn this talk, Agapi Stassinopoulos invites audiences on an inspiring journey of inner exploration to reconnect with their true selves. Born in Greece, Stassinopoulos learned the essential truths of happiness through the examples of wisdom, caring, playfulness, and generosity she saw all around her, starting with her own mother. She came to realize that everyone is born with an open heart, but that we quickly learn to put conditions on our happiness—comparing ourselves to others, casting judgment, allowing fear or entitlement or self-righteousness to take hold—and slowly our hearts begin to close. Stassinopoulos shares stories from her mother's bountiful kitchen, to the London classical stage, to an epiphany on a New York City bus—and inspires audiences to let go of the beliefs that bind them and come to a deeper understanding of life and love.
Rekindle Your Enthusiasm, Find Your PassionSo often in our lives, as we do the things we do, we tend to fall into a pattern of living on automatic. We lose our enthusiasm and life becomes mundane and unfulfilling. How then do we rekindle our enthusiasm and passion, so that we can be fully engaged in our lives? In this talk, Agapi Stassinopoulos shares wisdom from her own life’s experiences, and shows us how to tap into an unlimited source of energy as we let go of judgments and conditions to rekindle our own spark. By sharing her own story with vulnerability, authenticity, and humor, she enables us to rediscover our own enthusiasm.
