“There’s something about Agapi’s spirit that radiates a positive charisma into every room she enters. Upon addressing attendees at the Inaugural S.H.E. Bacardi Summit, I was blown away by her gratitude, attitude and confidence. By stepping into her keynote with Pharrell’s “Happy,” she instantly captivated the audience’s attention, and had us all hypnotized by her charm.
When Agapi said, “We aren’t supposed to fit in; we are supposed to stand out,” I knew she meant it simply by the way she engaged the people around her. Thank you Agapi for providing me and more than 400 participants with the notion of not making a “to-do list” but rather a “to-be list;” for telling us to always ask for what we want; and for teaching us that it’s the little things in life that matter most.
Since hearing Agapi speak, I have begun every day with a refreshed sense of energy and I take charge of MY time! I know that I (and many others) walk proudly because of her encouragement that, “we can create any shift we want starting with love and gratefulness.”
—MARLENE GORDON, VP General Counsel, Bacardi North America
“Agapi was fabulous! She closed our conference with such energy and passion, and it resonated throughout our audience! She was the “go-to” person at our reception that followed our conference as well! People wanted to talk with her, take pictures with her, etc. We enjoyed her message, her transparency, her energy and her overall approach with the audience…she was engaging to watch and listen to!”
—SANDY YONEMOTO, Director of Diversity and Inclusion, and HR Operations at Mattel, Inc.
“Dynamic. Engaging. Inspirational! These words do little when it comes to describing Agapi’s presence and influence as a public speaker. True to her Greek name and roots, Agapi loves her audience in ways that can only be experienced. She also connects with her audience like only a skilled actor knows how to do. We’ve seen her at “work,” which is actually a misnomer since she practices her craft so effortlessly, and more importantly, have witnessed first-hand how people respond so intimately to her message. What makes Agapi Stassinopoulos an extraordinary performer, is how she combines her skills in the dramatic arts with a flair for the spoken word that conveys her powerful message. With this unique mixture of talents, she truly captivates and enlightens her audience who undoubtedly can not help but fall under her spell!”
—ALEX PATTAKOS, PH.D., co-founder, The OPA! Center for Meaning Santa Fe, New Mexico
“Agapi Stassinopoulos is an authentic, genuine, and inspirational writer and speaker who knows how to connect with and move her audience. She brings out the beauty, power, and independence in all of us.”
—DEEPAK CHOPRA, author of War of the Worldviews
“When Agapi speaks, you think she’s reading your mind because she is connecting so deeply with your heart and all it’s pent up desires and truths. With greek wisdom and the most generous spirit — Agapi then has a delightful, delicious and humorous way of igniting you to listen and lead with your heart. I like to call her The Heart Igniter.”

“You were marvelous this afternoon at Collected Works. The love was palpable. It should have been filmed and shown to all incoming students at RADA as a tutorial. You are a master.”
“We met after the Hay House talk you gave last weekend. As I told you then, you were the most real person on that stage, and the world needs you!”
–LYNN CLUESS MANZIONE, author of A Wondrous Journey – A small book with big lessons
“I am still floating on a wave of renewed purpose following the conference. What’s even more exciting, it that I realize that I have the power to renew that feeling, myself, everyday. I am open to my best life – even if it isn’t exactly like what I have imagined.”
–MARLA KAVANAUGH, singer
