You are no ordinary speaker.
Changemaker, way-shower, 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.”
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 continue to be recognized as a seasoned speaker.
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.)
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:
It’s about reaching the people you were put on this planet to influence, inspire, and transform.
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.
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 a meaningful impact is to:
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.
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.
If you resonate with all we’ve said so far… You are.

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 three years I’ve put 50+ speakers onto 15+ TEDx stages, 14 of whom went on to the TED.com 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:
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.
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.
The 12-Weekly Modules Cover…
Speakers I’ve mentored have gone on to:
They have received standing ovations, 6-figure consulting contracts, and the speaking gigs of their dreams.
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 broader 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.
Don’t keep your audience waiting any longer for your Big Talk.
Claim your spot on the world’s most influential stages.
And create, deliver, and pitch the Big Talk, you know will change the world.

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.
