Course Description

Student Feedback:

"One of the best courses I've taken. Succinct, well made, covered off the major points that I needed to know in order to get straight in and start using the Camtasia programme."

"I'd bought Camtasia 6.0 back in the day, didn't really use it much as I never really got to grips with the basics. Found the editing and timeline stuff so bitty and difficult. Years later (now) and I buy the upgrade Camtasia 8.0 and thought the interface looks better and cleaner, but still didn't feel too comfortable using it, but was willing to spend time learning it because I want to teach courses via Udemy. A couple of weeks later and I somehow come across a promo for this course. It does exactly what it says on the tin. In the few lessons (27 at time of writing) it has got me up to speed and to the point that I feel truly comfortable just doing it...capturing my screen or presentation and then editing it quickly and without a load of fuss."

"Well done...I highly recommend this course. P.S. There is one other tip given in this course that truly knocked it out of the park for me and that I wish I'd known about 3 years ago...but that's life! " Gareth Thomas

"This Course is The best. I joined Two Courses Before But this one is the best."

Instructor Biography

Patrick Howell, NLP, Happiness, Self Esteem, NLP, Positive Psychology

The only Udemy instructor who's facilitated human development programs for leading organizations like these:

US Department of Defense

Meridian Health

I'm Patrick Howell and I love helping people experience greater wellbeing, happiness and confidence.

I've trained and coached people at a variety of organizations. I've coached executives past roadblocks created by poor communication.  I've taught people in seminars around the country, certifying them in applied positive psychology and neuro-linguistic programming. I also teach workplace engagement curriculum for local community colleges.

I am the director of coaching at Internal Change Academy, which provides research assistance and personal development programs to growth-seeking individuals.

After leaving a career with the global Dale Carnegie Training company where I won multiple awards as a trainer, I founded Team Development Group. As the managing director of Team Development Group, I head a team that includes happiness experts, NLP practitioners, and workplace learning trainers that teach public seminars and in corporations.

I am also the co-author of the best-selling field manual The Positive Workplace that was published by the American Society for Training & Development in 2015.

But for me, the best part of my job involves sharing my knowledge of happiness interventions with others.  I love giving people the confidence to live their best-possible lives.
