Public Speaking Delivery Drama – Two Lessons

Matt Eventoff

A few years ago, only candidates running in hotly contested House races, US Senate races and for the Presidency had to worry about videographers following every stump speech. This is something to see – it can render one simply… speechless. No media training here. .

Are you on fire?

Speak Schmeak

Connie Brown , a Send Out Cards consultant, had realized that there was no Internet access in the meeting room, so her future daughter-in-law Kimberly, a videographer, created a mock web tutorial in PowerPoint. At yesterday's referrals group meeting, everyone was on fire !

An Urgent Plea to YouTube

TJ Walker Interactive

I did look into it and we have confirmation from the videographer that the footage seen in the clips was also shot by the same videographer. Our videographer has asserted that they own the copyright to the video you licensed as well as the videos you see on the screens within the video. Dear YouTube, Thank you for providing such a great forum for video around the world. I have been an enthusiastic member and participant in the YouTube community since 2006.

PowerPoint Tip: Video Best Practices

Dave Paradi's PowerPoint Blog

The single biggest problem with most videos not shot by professional videographers is the low lighting levels. This past week I posted a new article on the web site about best practices when using video clips in sales presentations. It doesn't matter whether you are selling an idea to your boss or selling a multi-million dollar package of products and services to a client, video can be a great addition to your presentation.

Good Pictures Make Good Sense

Communication Steroids

While I’d never pass myself off as an expert photographer/videographer, I’ve picked up a few tips shooting stills for a commercial business newspaper (the now defunct Commercial Chronicle) and doing some field video work for a local cable news station. For the videographer: 1) Once again, get close.

when the speech hands you lemons.

The Eloquent Woman

We'd planned to videotape the presentation, which involved putting a lavalier mic with a very long cord on me and putting the videographer in one of the storefront window bays. I’m always coaching speakers to plan ahead, then be ready for anything on the ground.

Public Speaking : Speaking to Large Crowds

Great Public Speaking

If you are being projected, then you don't want to be too broad because you will always be running out of the video frame and making it too difficult for the videographer to follow you. I'll arbitrarily pick 100 audience members or more as a large crowd for the purposes of this article. When you are speaking to a large number of people there are many different things you should know to have the most impact in the smoothest manner possible.

On the other hand, you shouldn’t make it hard on the photographers and videographers that are trying to capture your image. It might be convenient for a videographer, but it is hell for an audience.
