    Inside the 1:1 Container with Tricia Brouk

    Inside the 1:1 Container with Tricia Brouk

    Today, I’m pulling back the curtain a bit to share with you how I support my one on one clients. 
     
    I only take on a handful of one on one clients every single year because I want to give these amazing thought leaders and influential voices my full attention, so that we can work together to go deep and really think outside of the box when it comes to who they are as speakers.
     
    While they all go through the same process during our year together, we are able to use this framework to create exactly what they need to get the results that they desire.
     
    I love these opportunities for really intimate mentorship, direction, coaching, and support. And I’m so excited to share it with you today!
     
    In this episode, we’ll explore:
    The 3 things I do with all of my 1:1 speaker clients before we even get on our first call How I help my clients move past fears and limiting beliefs  Creating goals around big stages, media, and visibility — and how I personally support my clients with these goals The importance of the confidence-competence loop we create inside of our 1:1 container

    Finding Growth from Shattered Dreams with Dr. Shenell Evans (Speaker Salon Showcase)

    Finding Growth from Shattered Dreams with Dr. Shenell Evans (Speaker Salon Showcase)

    Today, I’m so excited to be sharing with you another talk from my latest Speaker’s Salon Showcase!
     
    Each year, I curate the Speaker Salon in New York City to give speakers an incubator to work on their craft. They take the stage each week and receive live direction on their content, performance, and blocking. This experience culminates in a live, fully produced showcase featuring every Salon member.
     
    These speakers have gone on to become the go-to thought leaders in their fields. They also have become a part of a community of authentic, heart-centered communicators who are having a massive impact. 
     
    This Showcase talk, “From Shattered Dreams to Posttraumatic Growth,” is from the incredible Dr. Shenell Evans. She previously appeared on The Big Talk in Episode 380. 
     
    Dr. Shenell is a New York City based Licensed Psychologist and Posttraumatic Growth Oracle. She helps clients, often Black and Brown professionals, master the capacities necessary to build resilience and experience posttraumatic growth after trauma. She provides sacred space and evidence-based technologies for their continued evolution.
     
    In her talk, she explores:
    Her personal story as an ambitious, young Black wife and mother moving from the Deep South to New York City Turning pain into a catalyst for growth Honoring your needs and being compassionately curious with your emotions How posttraumatic growth works alongside fighting for change More from Dr. Shenell Her first appearance on The Big Talk podcast in Episode 380

    The Art of Responding - How to Manage Rejection

    The Art of Responding - How to Manage Rejection

    I’m so excited for today’s episode because I am talking about an important part of any thought leader’s journey. And that is how to navigate a rejection.
     
    Every speaker eventually has the experience of not being chosen to take a stage. This is normal. And the art of responding to this rejection can be learned.
     
    Recently, I addressed this with the members of The Big Talk Academy. The news of who would be taking the stage for our Virtual Showcase was met with a range of responses. And today’s conversation is a part of the coaching call where we discussed these responses.
     
    In this episode, we’ll explore:
    Why no one can take your voice from you What goes into a producing a show and why certain speakers are chosen The reason you don’t get feedback from your applications How to respond to organizers and event producers when you are not chosen for a stage and why this matters More from Tricia  Attend my 2-Day Virtual Masterclass The Art of The Big Talk

Amazing podcast, amazing soul

Podcast fanatic here and this is one is my favorite, most impactful, and without a doubt the podcast that gets the most air time on my phone, bar none. Whether you are a speaker, an entrepreneur, an individual who wants to achieve more, influence more, you will get so much out of listening to this podcast. In the last three months, I have been blessed and honored to work with Tricia and she has got me on two massive stages, and soon to be a TedTalk stage and in many top publications. I went from not knowing how let alone having any confidence to get on a stage to now an international speaker who will soon collect significant speaking fees . Through her high expertise, incredible ability of speaking, Tricia helped me craft two talks in my own voice which literally have brought down the house each time. Tricia leads by example, her best in class speaking, getting her speakers on the top stages, how she treats her team, how she treats clients, how she lives a highly fulfilled and intentional life with high consciousness and compassion. I don’t say this about anyone, do whatever you can right now to work with Tricia, whether it’s her coaching, through her virtual Big Talk Masterclass or Big Talk Academy or in person Speaker Salon.
