Today’s show is another in a series of bonus episodes each featuring one of the powerful 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. Yuri Nakasato and his talk, A Singing Prescription to Cure the Soul.


Dr. Yuri, a Harvard graduate, is an award winner of the prestigious leadership Bush Fellow. Besides taking care of patients, he is the author of a book in Rheumatology, a change and management expert, a certified Gestalt coach, a COVID frontline worker, and a crooner as featured on TV.


In his incredible and moving Big Talk, Dr. Yuri shares his truth of being on the front lines during the COVID-19 crisis and how he made a decision to fight.


In this talk, he explores:

  • Our natural fight or flight responses and how these translated into our early reactions to the COVID-19 pandemic
  • How to make frightening situations feel less stressful
  • Finding and spreading hope through music
  • The many benefits of singing
