Praise For Agapi’s Speaking

“Agapi Stassinopoulos delivered two Thrive workshops at our recent Global Wellness Summit in Mexico City, where the audience was comprised of 500 business and thought leaders from 43 countries. The workshops were the talk of the Summit! Using experiential exercises rooted in powerful scientific evidence, she spoke to the hearts and minds of the attendees and everyone left, enthused and inspired, with the knowledge of how to implement tools in their everyday life to enhance their wellness. The feedback flooded in afterwards and she was one of the most beloved and successful speakers we have had on stage in our nine-year history.”

—NANCY A. DAVIS SVP, Executive Director


“We host numerous inspirational events at The ACADEMi of Life, but none like the one hosted with Agapi Stassinopolous, she is in a different class … casting her spell, she immediately mesmerizes the audience.  A master storyteller, Agapi engages and enthralls. Her ability to be vulnerable and open transforms the room into a sacred space of love and beauty allowing the audience to float from the music and love that pours from her open heart. It was a transcendent, memorable and magical evening as Agapi took us on a journey of how to live a more joyful and fulfilling life. She is undoubtedly a heart-whisperer.”

“Thank you for your message, your love and your encouragement at the Hay House event on Sunday, Feb. 17th. It was is if you looked within me, grabbed my heart, cradled my soul, touched my arms and legs and whispered, “Dance, Sister, Dance.”. I write. I speak. I teach, but I have not boarded the bus. You and your mother (in spirit) told me to board the bus and recognize my own gift and voice. Drop the fear. The world needs me! Thank you. We are ready to come and drink me of the Agapi (and agape) water. It is all about love.”

–LA-VERNA FOUNTAIN, President, Defiant Hope, Inc.


“You were so wonderful tonight. It was a real pleasure to see you in action, and I LOVED hearing the chorus of people agreeing with what you were saying about loving ourselves wholly and completely. Part of what made the evening really cool for me was listening to you talk about staying true to what’s in one’s heart and being an honest expression of who one really is, and spreading this message to the American Heart Association.”

–SUZANNE GUILLETTE, author of Much to Your Chagrin


“You were a ray of sunshine!! Congratulations on your heartfelt presentation. Your message is SO important to heart health and I feel you have opened a new door to the prevention of heart disease. You have a powerful message and a presentation style that is very impactful.”


“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.”

–CLAUDIA CHAN, Founder, & S.H.E. Summit Week


“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.”


“We were thrilled to have Agapi Stassinopoulos join our last Women in Technology gathering at Time Inc to speak about the message of her book   Unbinding the Heart.  Agapi’s energy is infectious and her positive outlook and amazing insights left us all feeling inspired, confident and celebrated.  Her genuine perspective and deep understanding of the importance of being present and “taking care of your human capital” transformed the room of women—and got everyone dancing! All of Agapi’s messages were woven through lively anecdotes and her personal history, making her relatable, but more importantly, breathing real life to her themes. The feedback we received after her visit was overwhelming.”

—FRAN HAUSER, President Digital Time Inc. Style & Entertainment Group


“Agapi is one of the most dynamic and inspirational speakers I have heard in a long time.  I hosted a women’s event with Agapi as our speaker and she mesmerized all the attendees.  Everyone left with an unbound heart and feeling energized and renewed by Agapi’s incredible story of relentless pursuit of happiness in life and career.”

—MINA TRUJILLO, Owner, Chraft PR


“When Agapi Stassinopoulos steps onto a stage and begins to speak, the audience is transformed by her honesty, humor, and story.

Agapi, was inspirational and beloved by everyone at the California Women’s Conference.”

—ROSE TAFOYA, Director of Programming, California Women’s Conference


“Agapi Stassinopoulos is a gift to humankind. She truly is an inspirational speaker and writer who overflows with love, joy and wisdom. She was the keynote speaker at the, “I Am Here Series” in Monterrey, Mexico where she transformed hundreds of women’s lives. Once you know her you can’t get enough of her lovely spirit and beautiful message!”

–BARBARA ARREDONDO, founder, I am Here Series


“From the minute you walked, or should I say danced, on the stage I was captivated! The energy you brought, the compassion from which you spoke and the power of your words moved me. As I was sitting there listening and taking notes, the minute you stated “We were validated the day we were born” struck such a chord inside of me that tears immediately began to stream down my face. It was an ‘aha’ moment and I can’t thank you enough for that!”



“Again, what an empowering speech and performance you gave yesterday at the Hay House Conference! Talk about making an entrance and an experience for everyone! Your message of validation and not waiting to be given permission really resonated with me. It was exactly what I needed to hear yesterday, as this is something I’m learning to let go of.”

–SARINA TOMEL, Coach & Speaker


“Agapi was such a delight as a motivational inspirational speaker for Nike Women group and had the entire audience engaged in just minutes; laughing and dancing throughout! I didn’t want the 90 minutes to end! People left feeling lifted with next action steps to improve their well being.”

–KIM KATHREIN, From Nike Women
