Doing video and doing video well has just become the cornerstone of a successful business and company.
Our diaries were once filled with face to face meetings, shaking hands and drinking coffee. But now with the Coronavirus & COVID-19 situation we're instead holding so many of our business or personal meetings online in lockdown or quarantine.
Some of us though might be worried that while we were sure we could make a good impression face-to-face, it's just not the same over a video call. We might be frustrated at not being able to set these calls up & get the technology working right or we might be concerned that we're committing a faux pas and not making the meeting a success, we might be worried (if we're salesmen) that it's affecting our sales and our ability as salespeople to get new business in.
Whether you're using Skype, Zoom, WebEx, Google Hangouts or Facetime, these are the problems we aim to help in this course. We want to refine your video calls (whether for business or for your own enjoyment) to be as slick as they are in person. In this course. We'll be covering things like:
