Russ Alan Prince: What is The Big Talk Masterclass?

Tricia Brouk: People can become the go-to experts in their fields when they understand what their big idea is, how to communicate about it succinctly, and how to pitch themselves clearly as that expert. By becoming massively influential and being the go-to expert in their field, their confidence skyrockets, their credibility soars, and their revenues increase dramatically. 

It can take some time for most people to become capable of stepping onto big stages and wowing an audience. This fact led me to develop The Art Of The Big Talk Stepping Onto Big Stages Masterclass. It is a virtual 2-day live event that can be transformative for people who want to truly stand out. In the masterclass, people learn to:  

  • Land on their potent ideas

  • Learn how to communicate effectively and with confidence

  • Increase their influence to create new and often astounding opportunities

The results, for many who attend include…

  • Becoming an influential speaker without prior experience

  • Gain the confidence to speak in front of large audiences

  • Learn how to deliver a talk that has a global impact

  • Constructively increase their visibility and credibility

Prince: For those speakers who want to further develop as powerful speakers, what do you offer?

Brouk: I find many professionals, for instance, who want to have a major impact on their worlds are strongly interested in reaching a higher level of speaking proficiency. For most of them, The Big Talk Academy is the answer. It’s a 12-week speaker and thought leadership incubator. This intense program teaches people how to create influence mastery so they can have a truly global impact. In The Big Talk Academy, attendees learn to shape their authentic story into not only a talk they can sell, but also a brand narrative that can truly resonate with others. 

A key aspect of the program is to empower attendees by showing them how to take their core message and integrate it into every interaction and across any platform. This proves exceedingly useful for professionals who want to be able to masterfully communicate their message whether it’s in a stadium-sized event or as part of an intimate one-to-one conversation.

Prince: What if someone wants even more?

Brouk: I do work with a select few people individually. This is an intimate and extensive application of the methods that can make someone incredibly influential in their chosen field. It includes high touch support in crafting their signature talk. I also guide them in getting opportunities to speak on major stages. All in all, working one to one provides a way for my clients to  personally grow exponentially as influential voices. 

Prince: What kind of reaction are you getting for your programs?

Brouk: There are a lot of people including a plethora of professionals who recognize the value of being able to talk to larger audiences. Commonly, the value they receive from the programs translates into more opportunities, more impact and more business. Generally, once people start to see the benefits they want more. This is good for my business but more importantly, it enables people to make a significant difference in their lives and the lives of their audiences.
