“It’s our responsibility when we take the stage to understand that we’re going to affect people, we’re going to make change….And if you pull back in any way, you are missing that opportunity to…change that one life.” 

Tricia Brouk on Green Connections Radio

Being able to speak in public is crucial to career success in today’s world where the media is everywhere, cameras are everywhere, and you can end up on social media without knowing it.  Being a public speaker who moves people in a positive way can be a powerful career advantage too. But how? And how do you land those coveted opportunities to command a TEDx stage?

Listen to Tricia Brouk, former long-time producer of TEDxLincolnSquare in New York City who used to approve or reject speaker pitches and who trains speakers to succeed today, in this remarkable interview with Green Connections Radio host Joan Michelson – and more career advice too.

You'll hear:

  • How to take the stage with confidence.
  • How to build trust with your audience.
  • How to identify what to talk about, including in pitching a TEDx Talk.
  • Why practice, practice and more practice matters.
