Christine Perakis, Esq.
Bus/Exec Coach, Spkr, Entrepreneur, Bus Growth Expert, Atty, Bestselling Author, Storm Warrior

Christine brings a powerful story to the stage and audiences are resonating with her life and leadership lessons learned from surviving two catastrophic Category 5 hurricanes while alone in her home, when the most powerful storm to hit the Atlantic Basin tore the roof off, burying her alive in a wind coffin for almost 24 hours, with no electricity, no telecoms, no way of letting anyone know that she was there and alive. Christine was completely cutoff from friends, family and community for days. She had to find a way to survive for months on her adopted island nation when 85% of the housing was destroyed along with infrastructure, to reach clear skies and calm seas.

Even if audiences haven't weathered a hurricane, these 7 Barometers of Resilience to weather any storm in life and business will apply to many of the situations that they have experienced in their lives, businesses, careers, finances, relationships. Christine shares with audiences how they, too, can become their own Storm Warrior, to be set free, and to thrive.

In Christine's next, soon-to-be-released book, "The Empowering Storm: Becoming a Storm Warrior in Life and Business," Christine shares what it took for her to find purpose and be of service in the most traumatic situations in life and business.

For more than two decades, Christine Perakis, Esq. has navigated through negotiation tables, board rooms, class rooms, and the tempestuous open seas. As a lawyer, C-Level executive, investor, trainer, and boat captain, Christine discovered an essential truth applicable to both life and business:

"Weathering the storm requires the partnership of a talented Captain and an experienced Navigator"

Christine brings order to chaos as a professional rescuer, using her business acumen as an attorney, entrepreneur, and certified executive coach, combined with expertise as a certified mountain rescuer, EMT, 100-Ton-Licensed Boat Captain, and World Champion Yacht-racer. Christine leveraged these talents to create her bestselling small business survival guide, "The Entrepreneur's Essential Roadmap: Taking Your Business from 0 to 7-Figures in Record Time." Figuratively and literally, Christine has weathered the "Category 5 Storms" in life and business, and guided her teams to safely reach their destination. This includes Christine's survival of 2 catastrophic Category 5 hurricanes, and the leadership and life lessons that she learned from these experiences.

Strategically partnering with her clients, Christine has worked in myriad global enterprises, helping entrepreneurs on five continents generate substantial growth from startup through expansion, secure millions in financing from multiple sectors, and implement new revenue streams and product lines. She has developed and conducted business programs and taught seminars, graduate-level business courses, even sailing, skiing and yoga, among other offerings.

Christine relishes the challenges of creating solid business foundations for growth, launching new products for worldwide distribution, developing marketing and PR campaigns, attracting media attention, fundraising in the private sector, and teaching others how to do all of these to achieve maximum success.


"Christine is an incredibly engaging, thoughtful, and knowledgeable presenter. She has facilitated dozens of sessions for the McDermott & Bull Executive Network, and our senior-level executive members have benefited from her wisdom. On top of that, Christine is an incredible listener – she has the ability to stay on-topic, all while addressing a variety of questions and needs. Christine has keynoted several of our events, and our members always walk away with important and applicable takeaways. I'm looking forward to partnering with Christine in the months and years to come!"

"When founders enter our program, they need direction for their long term company vision, their company culture, what type of leader they want to be, etc. From the very first presentation, we found Christine's workshop, “7 Crucial Steps to get from Idea to Exit” an indispensable tool to answer these questions and to kick-start each incoming class at our tech incubator. Christine gives an engaging, interactive experience loaded with actionable tools and takeaways. All entrepreneurs should use this to immediately to accelerate their own road to massive success. Her continued mentorship of the companies following her presentations has been invaluable!"

"Christine offers thought-provoking insights drawn from her vast experiences in her own entrepreneurial ventures and hundreds of clients, that actually changes the way that we think about our business. This allows us to get crystal clear about what kind of legacy we want to create. We generated a stronger Core Ideology to rally our team following Christine's training."
