Online Video Training

Want To Boost Your Online Profile?

Latest research shows that customers are more likely to buy after watching a video about you, your product or service. They want to get a sense of who you are, your energy and how you show up, not just what you offer.

And if you want to reach a national or global audience the quickest way to do this is to appear on screen and put your videos on LinkedIn, Facebook and Instagram as well as YouTube.  However, for some of us this means taking a BIG step out of our comfort zones.  Join us for our Twinkle For The Camera Workshops which will provide a safe and confidential space to practice being in front of the camera (whether it be on your phone, computer or video camera).

Are you worried about talking on screen and presenting yourself and your business professionally?

This interactive session will help you to:

  • Look your best in online videos promoting your business
  • Convince people you are worth listening to
  • Gain business by using video to increase your online profile

As well as benefitting from practice sessions with expert advice, you will learn about the key issues for appearing professional online including preparing your script, choosing the right setting, lighting, sound, appropriate appearance, eyeline, voice, pace, and performance.

Our Managing Director, Roz Morris, will lead this course. Roz is a former BBC TV presenter and she specialises in advising executives on how to present themselves professionally on camera. 
 
Roz says: “Nowadays it’s no longer just the top executives in a business who have to appear on screen representing their business. There are more TV channels than ever before all looking for people to interview about business issues. And, with the huge growth of online videos, the demand for professional video content is greater than ever before. “
