When a dear friend booked a TEDx talk and asked Tricia to direct her, the seed was planted.  Within just 6 months Tricia had a website up and The Big Talk was live in NYC. Her work now centers around helping people “talk” and not only talk, but give BIG talks, the important ones, whether it's a TEDx, or a keynote or a toast, or communicating in front of people that they respect. Despite having zero online presence, Tricia began surrounding herself with people who understood the online world, one of whom was networking a specialist Jamie Broderick who helped Tricia create an online media presence and introduce her to key people who might need speaking directors. The rest, as they say, is history.   Here Tricia shares her process for delivering a successful “Big Talk” so you can spread your message on a global scale. WHAT ARE THE TECHNIQUES OF EFFECTIVE PUBLIC SPEAKING? Knowing the Difference Between a TEDx Talk and a Keynote Speech  The Art of The Big Talk first breaks down the difference between a TEDx talk and a keynote speech. This is an important distinction you’ll need to understand in order to get the delivery just right. A TEDx talk is  * 18 minutes or less * Contains your ideas (not problems or issues) * Aims to give the listener a “gift” or a solution (“We can end global warming by doing this one simple thing…”) A keynote speech  * 45 - 60 minutes long * Presents hard hitting problems or issues * Contains a clear call to action or an “ask” (“Buy my book”) Tricia further explains these very different approaches by stating “If you talk about an idea and frame it as an idea, not an issue, people will respond to you more openly. An idea is a thought a concept or a notion that we have. And once we form a thought this can become an idea with massaging, tending to and allowing for growth, an issue is usually an emotional or a personal problem. And it makes you feel prickly.”
