Today’s show is another in a series of bonus episodes each featuring one of the incredible talks given by my participants in The Big Talk Academy as a part of our Virtual Showcase. This showcase is the culmination of their hard work as they cross the finish line to becoming certified speakers. 

These episodes give you a peek behind the scenes to witness the amazing Big Talks presented and also give you exclusive access to my live feedback and the direction I give to each speaker immediately following their performances.

This week’s episode features Dr. Olivia Ong and her talk, Self-Worth Through the Eyes of Self Compassion.

Dr. Olivia is a physician from Melbourne, Australia. She is a medical leadership coach, speaker, and author. Her mission is to help fellow physicians lead more balanced and heart-centered lives by utilizing self compassion so that they can thrive at work and at home without the burnout.

In her powerful and eye-opening Big Talk, Olivia reminds us how to return to self-compassion and why it’s so important. 

In this talk, she explores:

  • Her own journey of being a burned-out perfectionist and the life changing event she experienced
  • Why so many of us, especially doctors, struggle with self-worth and asking for help
  • The three key components of self compassion and self-worth
  • What self compassion gives us and a tangible way to start practicing it now
