The Big Talk Story
Skip the small talk, make meaningful connections
Big Talk began as one woman's quest to go out, meet new people, and skip the small talk to make more meaningful connections with them. Watch the video above to see what happened. Today, the TEDx talk about Big Talk has over 6.5 million YouTube views, sparking a global movement to "make Big Talk" that includes stories from around the world, a Fulbright Research project in communications and empathy, a question card game, app, educational programs, and events around the world. Big Talk has been adopted by the LA Lakers, Harvard Medical School, Universal Music Australia, employees at Amazon Google and Adobe, the U.S. State Department, Veterans Organizations, a jail education startup, and students, families, and individuals worldwide.
