Three years ago, Kalina Silverman wanted to see what could happen if she approached strangers and skipped the small talk to have more meaningful conversations with them instead. She made a Youtube documentary, where it went viral. As a result, she started delivering workshops, and even a TEDx talk on the subject. It now has > 3,000,000 views on YouTube, and has garnered feedback from people around the world who have shared their stories of making BIG TALK. The feedback she received from Singapore in particular, inspired her to come here to pursue research around how Big Talk can be used to bridge communication gaps across different kinds of relationships.
