Are you ready to change the world with your big talk?

Join my signature speaker program and become a speaker with global impact today!

It’s why you’re on the planet, right now, right here. And it is time, my friend.

Your Voice Matters, Now More Than Ever.


Hey there, Speaker.

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

(We have that in common.)

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

You are ready to own being a movement-maker! 

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 process, desiring a safe space to test material and the confirmation that ensures you walk away with an amazing talk?

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

You are certain you’ve been entrusted with a mission to spread this idea, and you honor the weight of this responsibility.

And if you’ve had any of those feelings as you’ve worked toward writing your Big Talk, know that you are not alone.

An overwhelming majority of my speakers experience these exact feelings 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…

Tricia Brouk Looks Through A Monocular With Her Right Eye

Imagine what it’s going to be like when…

You are here today because…

Tricia Brouk Dressed in a Leopard Print Suit Holding Her Hands in a Heart Shape

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.
  • To right a wrong.
  • To heal the planet.
  • To move us forward as a collective.
  • To reach thousands, even millions of people.
  • To leave a legacy, making the world a better place for generations to come.
  • To 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.)

Imagine with me, your near future:

Tricia Brouk

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… effecting 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.

My signature speaker program

Introducing, The Big Talk Academy:

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.

How do we do it?

Tricia Brouk Speaker & Coach and Mentor

Twelve Value-Packed Modules 

The entire Certification Program can be completed virtually in the comfort of your own space. We’ll cover step-by-step each topic you need to master to create your Big Talk, including mastering your mindset, nailing the writing process from unforgettable opening to show-stopping close, crafting the perfect pitch, and performing on your dream stages.

An Online Community of Speakers with Diverse Viewpoints 

You’ll get immediate access to our online community, filled with world-class speakers who are excited to support you in sharing your message. Big Talk Academy Graduate Jazz Biancci shared about the community: “I felt safe. I knew everyone was cheering me on and sending me good vibes, just as I was to them. The caliber of the people were priceless, the talks were impactful, and the connections made will blossom into future collaborations.” Our private community is also where you get daily support from me as you progress through our certification curriculum.

Bi-Weekly Group Coaching Sessions with Tricia 

Twice each month, we’ll gather via Zoom video conference, where you can ask me anything: about your talk, opening, or content, as well as my opinion on conferences and TEDx events. Get guidance for your upcoming pitches, performance notes, and expert instruction on organizing your ideas for maximum impact. 

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 have worked with speakers who have spoken at Google, Pinterest, The United Nations, Congress, the FDA, the Fearless Women’s summit and countless TEDx stages. My speakers have gone on to be represented by the same bureaus who represent Mel Robbins, Suzie Orman and Bob Woodward. 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. 


Your successful completion of The Big Talk Academy means that you’ll be officially Certified as a Big Talk Graduate. You’ll be listed on a special website where top meeting planners visit to seek out the best talent for their stages. You also get a The Big Talk Academy Speaker badge that you can add to your email signature and website, letting potential meeting planners know that you’re the real deal and their audience will be safe in your hands. 

In short, you’re getting top-level mentorship so you can finally craft and perform your world-changing talk on the stages of your choice.

Your Big Talk Matters Now More Than Ever…

We are at a pivotal moment in history.
Old paradigms are being challenged.

Help me 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: 

  • 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.

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.

“I said yes to taking the Big Talk Academy and it was the best decision I made in a long time... Run, don't walk, if you get a chance to work with Tricia Brouk."
Amelia Felbinger
Speaker, Founding Vice President of S&D Family of Brands

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.

I’m ready to elevate as a speaker!

Who Is a Good Fit?

Here’s a Deeper Look Inside the Weekly Modules…


We start with mindset at The Big Talk Academy because being a powerful speaker is more than just saying words. We teach you how to have a lasting legacy. 

  • You are going to learn how to increase your confidence.
  •  I’m going to teach you how to coexist with fear.
  • I’m going to guide you away from any limiting beliefs.

Idea Generation

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.


Sitting down to your computer or notebook can feel daunting. Guest what? We all start in the same place. We all start with a blank page. 

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.

Keynote versus TEDx

If you are not clear on which talk you desire to write, I’m going to help you determine which one is right for you and your business.

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

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.

The Art of Pitching

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.


I produced a live virtual event as the culmination of The Big Talk Academy. You will have the opportunity to perform at the Virtual Showcase and shine.

  • Practice everything you’ll learn in real-time at the end!
  • Receive live feedback from Tricia on your script and performance.
  • Be seen by influencers, TEDx organizers and decision-makers in real-time who can book you on their stages
  • Be featured on The Big Talk YouTube Channel.

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.

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

Don’t keep your audience waiting any longer for your Big Talk.
