It is time, my friend.

Your Voice Matters, Now More Than Ever.

Are you ready to change the world with your Big Talk?

Hey there, Rock Star.

You are no ordinary speaker.

Change maker, wayshower, disruptor, thought leader.

Catalyst, advocate, mentor, teacher. Expert, author, coach, and healer.

You are an agent at the leading edge of transformation.

You speak because you have to. Deeply called, you are here with a big purpose:

You take this responsibility seriously.

It would be no exaggeration to say, You are here to serve humanity

(No biggie.)

You’re intelligent. Gifted. Passionate. And, you’ve achieved a level of success.

From the outside, it looks like everything’s “fine.”

You may even book gigs regularly or be recognized as a seasoned speaker.

You take this responsibility seriously.

  • It would be no exaggeration to say, You are here to serve humanity
  • (No biggie.)
  • You’re intelligent. Gifted. Passionate. And, you’ve achieved a level of success.
  • From the outside, it looks like everything’s “fine.”
  • You may even book gigs regularly or be recognized as a seasoned speaker.
  • But…

  • You are ready for more. More impact, more money, more clients, more stages. You are already experienced as a speaker and/or leader in your field, and desire to elevate, amplify and accelerate your impact.

  • You’ve been working at the surface level, and know there’s something deeper you want to express. You just don’t yet know how to get to it.

  • You’re a good speaker—in fact, you’re very good. In your heart, however, you know that you are operating at a fraction of the level you can. If you were to be totally honest, you’ve been skating by on your talent, and haven’t (yet) shown up at the level you know you must.

  • At your core, you come from a deep place of service, and are passionate about your message. But you haven’t quite hit the mark yet with your talk. Something you can’t define is missing, so you feel out of alignment, even out of integrity. Or, you don’t know where to start.

  • Your pitches aren’t landing. You’re definitely not reaching the right audiences, or enough people, for what you’re here to do. You’re tired of hearing No, or worse—nothing. Silence is deafening when you’re putting your heart on the line with every pitch. This is your mission at stake.

  • You feel like you’re in it alone, or that you don’t quite belong, truth be told. By its nature, speaking is lonely. Or you may have tried other speaker programs or communities and felt alienated when they didn’t meet you in skill or experience. (In my circle, devoted to inclusiveness and diversity as a result of that, you may take the stage by yourself, but you are never alone. We consciously cultivate a community where everyone belongs.

  • The obstacles can seem insurmountable when you don’t have a soft place to land among people who support and don’t compete with you; a mentor and peers who intimately understand the pitfalls and opportunities of the speaking world; or guidance from an expert who knows the exact steps to develop and deliver your Big Talk and get you on the big stages of your dreams. (Three guesses on where you can find all of the above.)

  • You’re starting to lose hope. Wait, let me rephrase that, because you are a positive-thinking, cup-half-full type of person (all my people are): You feel discouraged, and you can’t see the right next step to fulfill your dream of global impact. You either don’t know where to begin or are overwhelmed by information and competing options.

Consider me a loving messenger from your future, successful self: 

It is time to seriously uplevel your game and stop playing small.

(Hey, you wouldn’t be here if you didn’t want me to tell you the truth. And that is one of the things I am… a truth teller.

It’s how I help my speakers uncover and deliver their most compelling Big Talk. More on that in a minute.)

“If you want to speak on the biggest stages (and make great money doing it), you need to work with Tricia Brouk!”
Farnoosh Torabi

Imagine with me your near future:

Tricia Brouk is delivering a speech to an audience

You see yourself on that big stage, hear the applause welling from the audience, and witness your bank balance grow from well-compensated, aligned speaking gigs… 

And, it’s not even about that. It’s about:

  • That person in seat 3B who starts to cry as you speak, recognizing themself in your story.
  • That attendee of your online presentation who is moved to join your global movement.
  • That speaking opportunity that gets you into the spaces where your talk shifts the trajectory of an industry.

It’s about reaching the people you were put on this planet to influence, inspire and transform. 

  • Creating the impact that you’ve desired for so long. 
  • Becoming the speaker you’ve always dreamt you could be. 
  • Stepping confidently into your purpose. 
  • Sharing your message with crystal clarity. 
  • Captivating your ideal audience in an authentic, aligned way. 
  • Leaving your listeners with something meaningful, provocative, transformative, even transcendent… affecting global change.

You know that your message has the potential to impact millions. Are you ready to deliver it, on the world’s biggest stages?

If you got the call tomorrow, to speak in front of the biggest audience of your career, or for the most influential people to your cause, or to a room packed with the very people you are passionate to serve…

Would you be ready?

If you are frozen like a deer in headlights… (Blink, blink.)

If the answer is No, not yet

The thing is, you absolutely MUST be ready when the opportunity to share your message with the world presents itself… because you never know when you’ll get a last minute call to host, emcee, take a big stage or step in for another speaker.

If you hesitated, doubted, or scrambled for even just a moment before answering a resounding YES… 

Then Big Talk Academy is for you. And your time is NOW.

Why Now More Than Ever…

We are at a pivotal moment in history.

Old paradigms are being challenged.

New ways of being and communicating are emerging.

Old problems need fresh perspectives and solutions.

Where do you stand?

What role will you play?

Who do you want to be a hero to?

Your story is meant to be heard.

You can change or even save someone’s life through your talk. 

Your voice is a vehicle of influence. Your story is your legacy.

So…. What are you going to do about it? Do you dare to change the world?

Great Speakers Aren’t Born. They’re Made.

A great speaker is prepared. Practiced. Polished.

I would add: Real. Authentic. They trust themselves on stage, and present their message with unshakable courage and confidence.

In our age of viral videos and the relative ease with which we can put content out into the world, the only way to truly cut through the noise and make meaningful impact, is to: 

  • Hone your big talk and its delivery for the utmost clarity, quality and effect.
  • Cultivate your ability to captivate your audience with ease (you won’t find tricks or manipulative tactics here).
  • Speak your truth from a place of authenticity, integrity, and heart—this, in fact, is exactly what makes your talk so compelling and your presence so magnetic.
  • And craft confident, clear pitches that get you booked, again and again.


This is exactly what The Big Talk Academy offers.

No ordinary speaker training, The Big Talk Academy is a transformational intensive toward showing up in your higher purpose as a communicator. 

It is never too late—or too soon—in your speaking career to begin your journey to your Big Talk.

Expand your reach. Accelerate your growth. Elevate your delivery as a speaker to world-class levels. And join The Big Talk Academy today. <LINK>

The Big Talk Approach

if you're looking for freedom on the outside, you'll never find it. true freedom always comes from the inside.


author and The Big Talk podcast guest

If you walk onto a stage and you’re not clear on who you are, there’s a disconnect. The audience won’t trust you, even if they can’t say why. 

It is only when we take the time to self-actualize, to dive deep and connect with our purpose, that’s when real change happens. It often means touching the raw beating heart of what we experienced.

This is the foundation of our approach at Big Talk. Your Big Talk is built from the inside out. No shortcuts.

This deep, transformational space is not for the faint of heart.

“The Big Talk Academy has been so amazing! When I asked for help, it came! The Academy is my village, complete with support, security, and new friends!"
Alexandra Greenberg

The caliber of people were priceless, the talks were impactful, and the connections made will blossom into future collaborations!”

Why me, Tricia Brouk

Tricia Brouk stands in the streets of Thailand

As an international award-winning director and Executive Producer of events like Speakers Who Dare and TEDxLincolnSquare and The Big Talk Live, I produce the highest caliber speaker. In less than 3 years I’ve put 50+ speakers onto 15+ TEDx stages, 14 of whom went on to the main stage. Nine of those are taking the TEDxFarmingdale stage in 2020.

I help people hone their transformational talk for greatest impact, and get them on the world’s most influential stages—so their story can heal and inspire millions of people.

You have a powerful, world-changing story to tell. And I can help you be heard.

My purpose is to guide people to find their voice, whether it’s from the big stage or the big screen, so they can share important messages and help make the world a better place:

  • To give voice to those who are not always heard.
  • To give a platform to those who have powerful messages. 
  • To support those who are meant to have global impact. 

I create a safe container of non judgment and compassion, powered by deep listening skills honed over years of drawing out actors’ best performances. 

You can trust me—with your story, your trauma, your weakness, your person. We go deep and then come up healed so your message can be shared. 

I am fearless. I’m not afraid to be criticized, get it wrong, be called out. I am willing to get dirty, and be vulnerable and awkward first—so you feel at ease. I don’t see difficulty; I know how resilient we are.

I have a gift for pulling out the detail on which the whole talk hinges, a knack for seeing the miraculous in the simple, or the magic and majesty in the mundane.

I am a passionate advocate of diversity and inclusion. I grew up in a small all-white town. It wasn’t until I went to college and began to educate myself and spend time with people who aren’t like me. (I finally fit in!) I made it my cause and my way of moving through the world to be accepting of all human beings.

I am a speaking and performance expert with 30 years’ international award-winning experience in theater and entertainment. I come to the table with razor-sharp business acumen, grit, courage, an artist’s soul, and a generous heart.

I have one job, and one job only: to be a beacon to the beacons (like you), who I support, inspire and lovingly push to shine their light on the world.

“Tricia Brouk is the REAL DEAL, hands down, so I knew the caliber of value and information I would be receiving [working with her]. If you want to be among the best, you must learn from and be around the best.“

Here’s what you get when you join The Big Talk Academy:

The Big Talk Academy provides instruction, feedback, and a forum for testing your work—and a unique, failsafe approach that builds your talk from the inside out.

In this 12-week virtual intensive and certification program, I’ll teach you the skills you need to identify, write, and perform your Big Talk—and get it in front of the people who matter.

  • Laser-focused guidance on uncovering the right, most impactful  idea for your next Big Talk. Whether it’s your first, second, or tenth talk, you’ll get the tools and resources you need to hone in on the most effective elements of your story and message.
  • Step-by-step guidance in writing and delivering a powerful talk that speaks to the heart of your ideal audience and inspires action—so you walk on stage with rock-solid confidence. No more second-guessing, figuring it out on your own, or throwing spaghetti on the wall to see what sticks.
  • The opportunity to “stress-test” your talk, speak in front of an audience, vetting topics and approaches with an expert’s feedback and input from a circle of speakers with your same commitment to quality, heart and purpose. No more practicing alone in a vacuum, wondering how the real audience will respond.
  • The real deal on how to masterfully pitch your talk (and future talks) to organizers, editors and producers. Learn the difference between a Keynote versus a TEDx talk—and how to write both.
  • Mastery over fear and self-doubt, and the confidence that captivates your audience, by mastering the art of performance, your energy, and rehearsal techniques (including memorization!)—so you always feel prepared when it comes to taking the stage.
  • Your unforgettable, signature talk, ready to deliver if you were asked to speak the day after you’re certified. That’s how prepared you’ll be.

What it looks like

  • The distillation of my years of proven coaching and award-winning experience in twelve weekly lessons delivered online and to your inbox, guiding you through the process.

  • Answers to your burning questions, when you need them with live, direct access to me throughout the intensive, in twice monthly Q&A sessions (6 in total).

  • A potential featured spot in a virtual curated showcase, the culmination of our work together. This opportunity to  perform the talk you developed and polished in front of an audience of experts, influencers and peers. And you will get constructive, won’t-get-it-anywhere-else feedback and direction from me, which is priceless.

  • Real-time feedback and support in our super-active, private Facebook group. This is a place to celebrate your wins as well as seek advice and a shoulder during challenges. The Big Talk Academy community is supportive, conscious, inclusive, loving and fun! And yes, I post in there daily, answering questions, sharing helpful advice, links to resources, and even occasional speaking opportunities.

  • Official certification in the Art of the Big Talk upon successfully completing the Big Talk Academy program. This certification grants you immediate credibility as a speaker who is committed to being the best and to stepping into their highest purpose as a communicator.
“Wow. I love the way Tricia breaks the process into baby steps that can be accomplished in about 10 minutes per day.”
Cheryl Bonini Ellis

“After working with Tricia Brouk over the past year and preparing for her Big Talk Academy presentations now I find a more specific way to reach that wider range for social change."
Marisa Zalabak

They have received standing ovations, 6-figure consulting contracts, and the speaking gigs of their dreams.

"This was another awesome week working together with Tricia Brouk at #thebigtalkacademy. I had a chance to further iron out my idea for my #bigtalk and some do more clarifying exercises.
It really does take digging deep to get to that great idea.
I have also applied for a TEDx!"
Beatrice Shev Weber

The investment

Prior to this program, the only way to have access to my training and guidance was to work one-on-one with me in my live-and-in-person Speaker Salon, a minimum five-figure investment.

I wanted to offer this same level of training and preparation to a wider audience, make it accessible on a 100% virtual platform, and empower even more people to be the beacon they are here to be—for a fraction of that entry fee.

The world needs your voice, your story, more than ever.

Hesitating? Have questions? 

I get it.

I know you’re scared. That’s normal. Transformation is not for the faint of heart.

More than one Big Talk Academy alum has come back with stories of how this work changed their lives. (You can read more of their stories below.)

Many of them reached this decision point, and also felt terrified.

But here’s what you need to ask yourself: 

What changes if you join the Big Talk Academy

What changes if you don’t

What do you miss out on if you join us? 

And what do you miss out on if you don’t?

Here’s what I know for sure… Every success story, every radiant Big Talk Academy alum who shared the wins I listed above and more, began with a YES. Began with an investment (and belief) in themselves. 

None of it can happen… until you commit and say YES.

You can do this. I believe in you. I am here for you, along with the rest of this amazing Big Talk community. We all are.

The world needs your Big Talk.

I can’t wait to see you on the other side.

Big love,

“The Big Talk Academy provides a wonderful opportunity to engage with Tricia Brouk’s well honed methods, and to work with her directly, in creating a Big Talk. It offers small bite-sized assignments which are meaningful and gratifying to do, and then seemingly suddenly, one has a whole new perspective and skillset in creating a talk.”
