If you don’t have a story, you don’t have a strategy. And if you are not telling your organization’s story through video, you are not reaching the hearts and minds of the people who matter. In today’s business communication environment, video is, by far, one of the most powerful channels to effectively secure emotional connections and bonds of trust. Avoiding video is no longer an option.
Video is not only your first impression, it is frequently your only impression. Make it count!

In this session, you’ll come to understand what it takes to master your message delivery by learning: 

  • How to build trust–the currency of business–by broadcasting authenticity
  • How to employ storytelling to create an emotional connection with internal and external stakeholders
  • How to leverage video to develop a culture of high-performance in your organization

Don’t even think about making your next corporate video before attending this session.
