Meet Cordelia Zafiropulo

Focus

Cordelia Zafiropulo is passionate about touching people at their core and assisting them to step up and take personal leadership. She advocates extracting power from feelings and alchemizing them into dramatic potential. “Unleashing potential and extracting power demands clarity of values and courage, it means being connected to your core, your unique self and your capacity to speak up and take a stand.” This stands at the centre of what Cordelia defines her approach.

Background

Initially, Cordelia felt prompted to follow a deeper desire for expression and embarked on studying classical voice. Her intense vocal studies took her abroad for many years where she learnt specific techniques of singing, drama and speech.

The deep understanding and technical know-how of the functional mechanisms of the voice as well as the immersion of the physiological and deeply psychological aspects of performing ignited Cordelia’s passion for psychological and mental healing arts, resulting in therapeutic breath work and psychic healing. This expansive field is what defines Cordelia today; her endless impulse to expand and evolve finds its purpose here - weaving deeper connections between the mental, the emotional and the physical aspects, whilst coming into ever deeper alignment, power and presence.

This and the profound knowledge of how to harness attention and the deep understanding of dramatic presence, equip Cordelia with the unique gift to assist people to align with their own personal power.

Expertise

Today Cordelia performs in various concerts, recitals and church music engagements of her choice. She does, however, harbour some more visionary projects aiming at implementing music and voice as tools for self-discovery enabling people deeper empowerment by developing their unique self-expression. Her lyric soprano voice easily permeates spaces and profoundly enhances atmospheres.

Professional & corporate experience that distinguishes Cordelia in coaching and training range from taking charge of voice and body language modules within Media Trainings, over in-house company training for well-known corporations such as E-on Energy, Deutsche Bank, Oracle Women’s Leadership, to inspiring groups and seminars with her vivaciousness. She has worked with executives from all kinds of ranks and backgrounds e.g. bankers, engineers, entrepreneurs, as well as with high ranking politicians or people simply desiring to expand and grow their presence.

And Finally…

"My knowledge and experience come from my personal understanding and development of stage presence. I am passionate about drama and how it can be used to enhance our lives effectively!
Drama was what attracted me to opera singing which in turn deeply altered my outlook on life. How we move our bodies and use our voices matters, it impacts our environment and how we come across! My vocal potential changed dramatically over the years as did my character. My operatic voice is part of who I am. I see life as the stage we are all constantly performing on."
