This is a short course to give you more confidence when speaking to camera. This is ideal if you are creating an online course or recording promotional videos for yourself or your business.
It’s often difficult to create a connection with our audience when we’re sitting on our own in a room and talking to a camera. In this course, I will take you through a step-by-step process to learn how to create an online video where you feel comfortable and relaxed. You will be given short exercises to follow. This course is packed with helpful tips and techniques.
This course is for you if you are struggling to make an online video and you want to feel natural, look professional and most importantly connect with your audience.
Kate was recommended to me by my teacher when I needed to develop a video about the energetic healings I practice, to share online.
I was struggling with how to make an inspiring recording of a talk I was ordinarily used to giving live but couldn’ t due to the lockdown, and the session with Kate could not have come at a better time.
From our very first conversation, Kate was so warm and encouraging, and supported me to create a blueprint for the video, that communicated my passion for healing, and especially how the healings could be of value to others.
Kate’s care and professionalism, helped me to focus on my strengths, and through a series of exercises, she guided me to use my voice to create the exact right tone and feeling I was comfortable with.
The result is a video I feel proud of and excited to share with my clients, the wider public and holistic healing community! This was a very special project and I am very grateful that with Kate’s skill and enthusiasm I was able to bring it to life. Thanks Kate.

My Top Tips for making your videos:
5 Top Quick Tips For Combatting Nerves:
- Controlling nerves: When fight or flight kicks in adrenalin will be surging through your body, giving you the shakes. Try squeezing your inner thighs or bum together. This will help to release some of that adrenalin quickly, allowing you to get on with your speech.
- Take deep breaths. Deep breaths before the speech will help to slow down your heart rate. Try breathing in for a count of three and out slowly.
- Try to speak to someone just before you take to the stage, this will help you to hear your voice and lose those initial croaks before it comes out of your mouth for the first time in front of your audience making you feel more confident.
- Chat to people on their way in. This helps to have allies in the audience and will help you feel more comfortable.
- Water – drink plenty of it the day before and have a glass at hand during the presentation. Avoid dairy as this creates excess mucus and coffee as this dries out the throat. Finally, look after your health, food and sleep are important in the run up to a presentation.
