Tricia Brouk: So you want to be a speaker? You want to tell your story?
So you want to be a speaker? You want to tell your story? Spoiler alert, it’s not so easy, and I think you might know why. Anyone can tell their story, but that doeth not maketh them a storyteller. There is a definitive art, method, and process to be a storyteller, nee, perhaps even an orator. But not necessarily a Town Crier. Today I am joined by my friend and colleague, Tricia Brouk, an award-winning director, choreographer, speaker, writer, podcaster, and Founder of The Big Talk Academy; which is a 12-week virtual certification program that will teach you the skills you need to identify, write, share — and even possibly perform — your big talk. Stories are all we have, and storytelling is what binds us together as a society. In healthcare, the right story told the right way to the right person can get a drug approved, a bill passed, or a critically disenfranchising law repealed.From the shyest wallflower filled with stage fight to the most professionally trained thespians, we talk about inclusion, integrity, and little self-confidence can actually change the world.
