Presentation on videos is in the frame for Swindon Business Village

By Anita Jaynes on 31 August, 2020

Popular networking group Swindon Business Village will be kicking off its new season of online meetings with a focus on how to use video content to win more clients.

Since lockdown, Swindon Business Village has been meeting online from 8-9am on Thursdays, but as always took a break for August.

On Thursday 3rd September, the first meeting back will feature a talk from Holly Wagner, of Swindon-based Green Kiwi Productions, called Getting Started with Video Marketing for Your Business.

Holly’s talk will focus on how to create effective and engaging video marketing content, which helps to win new clients. 

“I’ll also explain the basics of video production, such as where to position the camera, and try to help with any fears or blockages people may have around video,” said Holly. 

The presentation will explore different ideas for videos, what to say to get people watching, and how just using a smartphone can create engaging video content.

Holly added, “I’ve studied video production for over a decade and this is the only career I’ve had. I set up my video production business straight after university at the age of 21 and in the last year have moved over to video coaching, teaching people how they can create their own video content using just their smartphone.”

The event costs just £5 to attend, and attendees also get the chance to network and deliver a one-minute presentation.

Swindon Business Village is also looking for other speakers for the forthcoming season.

PR consultant Jo Smyth, of Word Worker, who helps run Swindon Business Village, said, “We are always looking out for good speakers for our Thursday meetings. We’ve had some great talks covering a wide range of topics, from marketing to sales, and even had one on how to deliver presentations. Our criteria are that the presentations have to be useful, informative and not promotional. Ours is a very friendly networking group, which has been going for at least ten years, and we are always an attentive and appreciative audience.”

Swindon Business Village meetings aren’t limited to speaker-only events. The varying formats include business problem solving sessions, and focused networking sessions.
