Getting in front of the camera…? Presentation skills… how are yours?

It’s becoming the normal thing now – search online for what you are looking for and watch a video about it. I’ve done it, there are umpteen videos on cameras and their functions and you find the one that makes sense to you and ‘ticks all your boxes’. 

BUT what causes us to stick with a video we choose to watch, whether it’s for information, in one form or another or entertainment? I’ve seen people having a rant about so many poorly produced videos. We are all used to people complaining about what they don’t like, but if you view something that’s really good and keeps your attention, tells you what you want to know and/or keeps you entertained – do you remember it, decide to follow them, recommend it to others, go back and watch more???

With the technology easily available to everyone on their smartphone, tablet, laptop, it’s no wonder in our ‘instant’ world people expect to be able to do this straight away with little preparation or thought.

But that’s just it, when they try and realise its perhaps not so easy and give up – with a little prior planning, consideration AND practise, it is achievable. 

Yes we want people to be themselves, which is very important, but nerves and distraction get in the way and turn people into something quite different!

No film producer ever gave someone a script and expect them to become word perfect straight away. 

We are running our third Video Presentation Skills Workshop on 31st October, at the lovely Nowton Court venue just outside Bury St Edmunds. This workshop brings its main focus on ‘why to do it’ ‘what to say’ and ‘how to say it’, keeping the technical aspect very simple and straight forward.

NEW PROGRAM OF HELP – 121 tuition – ‘Animate Your Image’

The Video Presentation Skills Workshop ties in nicely with the launch of a new 121 program of help, which is ideal to really get those presentation skills to camera nailed confidently.

It follows on and adds to the existing brand of help with ‘Love Your Image’ and ‘Evolve Your Image’. These were developed to specifically help those who are less than confident in front of the camera for photographs and provides them the tools to change this habit of thinking and behaviour.

Our image says a great deal about us and if you’ve formed opinions of others when you’ve seen a headshot or avatar, then its likely others are doing the same about you. 

Knowing how to get in front of any camera and be yourself without nerves and anxiety is a real bonus for you and your business.
