What is The Big Talk Academy About?

The Big Talk Academy is a 12-week, intensive, virtual certification program for people who want to identify big ideas, craft professional talks, and present Big Talks. These activities will prepare them to stand in front of their future audience when the stage is set.

What Will You Learn In The Big Talk Academy?

Here’s what you will learn during the 12-week virtual intensive and certification program:

  • How to gain mastery over fear and self-doubt, the art of performance, and authentic rehearsal techniques.
  • How to identify big ideas, craft your talk, and present it before big players – producers, editors, decision-makers, and meeting planners.
  • Step-by-step guidance in writing and delivering your big talk that will support your business, mission, and purpose.
  • Tools, techniques, and resources to project the most important aspects of your story.
  • The difference between keynote and TED-style talk, and how to write both.
  • An opportunity to speak in front of a real audience and get feedback from experts.

At the end of the program, the Big Talk Academy issues a certificate and features you on its website so you can gain visibility. You will get a Big Talk Academy Speaker badge that you can add to your website and email signature. You will also gain access to an online community of speakers who will support you on your speaking journey.

Additionally, Tricia Brouk offers continuous mentoring twice each month. You will have the opportunity to get on a Zoom call and ask her anything about your content. If you have any upcoming pitches, you will get expert guidance on organizing your ideas for maximum impact.

Because Tricia works directly with each participant, she tries to maintain small class size. If you miss this opportunity, you have to wait till the following year. You can click here to enroll in the Big Talk Academy 2022.

It is important to note that the Big Talk Academy is a safe place. You can share your story, even if it is traumatic, without being judged by anyone. The aim is for you to heal and develop a story that will inspire the world.
