Episode 566 Advocating from a Big Stage

566 Advocating From a Big Stage with Wendy Christie

Share This Post

Show Summary:

Today, I am joined by an amazing speaker, advocate, and alum of The Big Talk Academy, Wendy Christie. You may remember Wendy from Episode 426 when we featured her powerful talk, “Michelangelo’s Missive,” from the BTA Virtual Showcase.

Wendy trained as a pianist in her early years before realizing how the power of words can transform and shape others in the way music can transform and move an audience. 

Currently living and working in New Zealand, Wendy has sought opportunities to speak about the power of music in education systems around the world.

In this episode, we’ll explore:

  • Wendy’s journey from being a pianist to finding her voice and purpose in education and advocacy
  • Her experience inside The Big Talk Academy and the transformative impact it had on her ability to express her passions and beliefs
  • The power of vulnerability and connection in communication
  • How Wendy overcame self-doubt to start playing big
  • Wendy’s current favorites: Book: Margot Fonteyn’s Autobiography, Speaker: Sir Ken Robinson, Podcast: Cleaning Up the Mental Mess with Dr. Caroline Leaf
