A compilation of stories, personal and historical, that remind us of the power of our voice—along with practical techniques for how to use your voice, on stage and off, in a way that will be the most effective.

With over thirty years of experience in film, TV, and theater, Tricia Brouk uses her platform to create a safe, inclusive space for others to learn how to share their stories. The Influential Voice is a powerful reminder of the responsibility we have to use our voices for good, and that by staying silent, we are preventing someone from hearing our powerful story. When you become an influential voice and share your story, you can change—and even save—a life.
