Tricia Brouk, THE CURATOR, presents



The signature speaker program that will change the level that you play


TEDx Producer, Media Personality, and World-Renowned Speaker Mentor Tricia Brouk

Curates her signature speaker program for executives, business owners, and leaders that will:

  • Shape your authentic story into a cohesive brand narrative that you will communicate wherever you go
  • Transform that story into a leadership message, keynote speech, and communication agenda to differentiate yourself as a leader and positive disruptor
  • Show you how to take your core message and integrate it in every interaction and across any platform
  • Define yourself to the world as THE leader of your industry


You’re brilliant. Talented. Passionate.
You’re already successful, and now you desire more.

You are ready to own being a great speaker!

And yet, sometimes you question how it’s going to happen.

You are a speaker in your mind and heart. You are an influential voice.

You have an abundance of valuable ideas. 

You have a deep, white-hot desire to effect lasting transformation in your audience.

And how many times have you stopped short of delivering your biggest idea because you doubted whether you could effectively convey it as passionately as you feel it?

How many times have you sat in front of your computer, wishing you had a framework to support the writing process?

An overwhelming majority of my speakers experience massive fear before we work together, whether they’re prepping for the TEDx stage, The Speaker Salon, or other important stages they routinely take.

This is exactly why I created The Big Talk Academy. My signature speaker program...

for you.

Imagine what it's going
to be like when...

International award winning director and former Executive Producer of TEDxLincolnSquare, Tricia Brouk,

These are the results the Big Talk Academy Graduates
have gotten.

You are here today because...

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 your heart, however, you know that you are operating at a fraction of the level you can. 

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. 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 tired of hearing No, or worse—nothing.

You feel like you’re in it alone, or that you don’t quite belong, In my circle, devoted to inclusion 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.


You are no ordinary speaker. You are a…

changemaker, way-shower, disruptor, thought leader.

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

You are a Change Agent at the leading edge of transformation.

You speak because you have to. Deeply called, you are here with a BIG purpose to…

  • transform the lives of others.
  • right a wrong.
  • heal the planet.
  • move us forward as a collective.
  • reach thousands, even millions of people.
  • leave a legacy, making the world a better place for generations to come.
  • ignite and inspire real change on a global scale.

And you take this responsibility seriously. As do I. This is urgent, it’s important. And your voice matters.

Consider me a loving messenger from your future self: 

It is time to move from being a
good speaker to being a GREAT speaker. 

(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 know that your message has the potential to have global impact.

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 the answer is No, not yet…

Then Big Talk Academy, my signature speaker program is for you.

And your time is NOW!

The Big Talk Academy provides guidance, mentorship, feedback, and a playground for testing your work—and a unique, proven approach that builds your talk one step at a time.

In this 12-week virtual intensive and certification program, you’ll learn the skills you need to identify a big idea, craft a fully written talk, and perform your Big Talk so you can get it in front of the people who are making the decisions.

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 receive the tools, techniques 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 total command of the material.. No more second-guessing, creating in a vacuum, or asking your friends for feedback… (again).

The opportunity to “open mic night” 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 mission, values and purpose. No more practicing alone in front of your dog (or cats), wondering how the real audience will respond.

The real deal on how to masterfully pitch your talk (and future talks) to organizers, decision makers, and producers. Learn the difference between a Keynote versus a TEDx talk—and how to write both. Because you can and will.

Mastery over fear and self-doubt, and the confidence that captivates your audience by mastering your mindset,  the art of performance, and rehearsal techniques (including memorization!)—so you always feel confident when  taking the stage.

Your unforgettable, signature big talk is ready to deliver when you are asked to speak the day after you’re certified. That’s how prepared you’ll be.

Personalized Feedback 

We keep The Big Talk Academy small so that you get the experience of working with me personally throughout our 12 weeks together.

I’ve even worked with a speaker who testified at President Trump’s impeachment hearings. You’re going to be getting guidance curated with YOUR talk in mind, as I draw on my experience and my network to support you in getting your message heard. 

Virtual Showcase

Once we’ve massaged your idea into a full presentation, you’ll get exclusive access to apply to a curated virtual showcase. This is your chance to perform your Big Talk for me and influencers and also get live direction and feedback for your polished performance.

“The thorough, but simple process that Tricia guided us through — from finding our idea all the way through to writing and performing a really air-tight speech — ended leading me not only to discover a previously vague idea that had been waiting to be articulated but delivered me to the finish line with a powerful speech on this topic and also, a concrete and huge vision of the entire next phase of my career.”

The Big Talk Approach

The foundation is built from the inside out. Your talk will become the foundation to make you free on any and all stages.

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 our approach at The Big Talk. Your Big Talk is built from the inside out. No shortcuts. This gives you with a talk that leaves lasting legacy.

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

Who Is a Good Fit?

If you resonate with all we’ve said so far… You are.

The Big Talk Academy Graduates have included: students, CEO’s, Mothers, survivors, Broadway actors, immigrants, teachers, entrepreneurs, authors, TEDx speakers and doctors.

"[In Tricia's community], we each understood and had the opportunity to offer heartfelt support and encouragement , as well as receive it... It felt safe. I knew everyone was cheering me on and sending good vibes, just as I was to them. The caliber of people were priceless, the talks were impactful, and the connections made will blossom into future collaborations!"

  • I’m going to guide you away from any limiting beliefs.

Week 1

Week 2


Inside this lesson, I’m going to take you on a journey of exploration.

  • You will generate 100 ideas. (One will be used for your talk, and the others will be repurposed for blogs, Facebook lives and maybe even your book)
  • This  creative exercise will push you past what you think you know
  • You will move into a space of mind-blowing and fresh ideas, that you never even know you had. 

Quantifying Ideas

How do you know what ideas are great? How do you know what ideas are fresh and unique? How do you know which idea is the most impactful and why?

  • Learn what questions to ask, so that you land on the ONE BIG idea that will have global impact and why.
  • Get clarity on your idea and its purpose so you have the kind of impact you desire.
  • Determine the freshness of the idea from your point of view. Because there is only one you. 

Week 3

Week 4

I’m going to give you the tools to…

  • Become consistent with your writing process.
  • Two proven methods that will assist you in generating fresh content every day for one week.
  • You are going to be accountable.
  • Your writing muscle will be flexed and become strong, so you can flex in again and again. Support during your process and the accountability to follow through.

  • Become familiar with the different styles of talks
  • Create the product you desire 
  • Understand the impact of both.

Week 5

Weeks 6 - 10

Performance Skills

Broadway actors do 8 shows a week. They have to show up for each one as if it’s their first.I mean the audience is seeing the show for the first time, not the 8th, right? This means you need to have skills, a technique to be able to always be captivating on stage. 

I’m going to teach you…

  • The Technique of Objective and Action. Determine what you want and relentlessly go after it, so that you can stop hoping you are good and guarantee you are always great.
  • You are also going to learn how to memorize so that you have freedom on stages to play. 
  • You are going to learn how to seize their attention from the second you begin speaking.
  • You will have a clear understanding of how to wrap up for that standing ovation

Once you have your perfect, polished product, you are going to need to be able to pitch it to decision-makers. They are looking for a certain language and I’m going to teach it to you.  


  • Apply to events with confidence and clarity.
  • Get an opportunity to go through my application process for feedback.
  • Receive the scripts you need to save time in pitching, so you can get busy speaking.
  • Learn how to negotiate your fee and become a paid speaker.

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 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

No, this program is a group program; however, on the group Zoom calls, when you submit your questions ahead of time, Tricia will answer those first before opening it up to the live group call.And, the way Tricia works, when she’s coaching someone else, and answering questions, you will often learn more than you would when you are being coached.

The Big Talk Academy has been created for busy people. It’s designed to take you through Tricia’s proven process, while allowing for your process.


This process literally takes 6-10 minutes a day. And each email will lay out how much time you need to spend per lesson.


You can go through the program the way Tricia has designed it or batch the week’s work on the weekend. Your call.


Overwhelm is not part of this program. 


Lessons are bite-sized daily meant to eliminate overwhelm and get to the goal, finishing your big talk and being ready to perform it.

Community is one of The Big Talk Academy’s values along with inclusion. Every voice matters in this program, whether you are a ten-time TEDx speaker or someone who’s never taken a stage. And Tricia and her team make everyone’s voices heard in the Facebook Group and on the group calls. Everyone is seen and heard in The Big Talk Academy.

Still reading?

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, Tricia
