Cambridge, UK

2018 is the year of VIDEO. Mark Zuckerberg from Facebook described it as: “as a mega trend on the same order as mobile.” If you want to grow your business, it doesn’t matter how talented you are, or how great your product is…If you’re not telling people about your business, then you’re not going to scale and grow.

Your clients and customers are going to be watching videos, and engaging with brands on video, and if you’re not talking on camera, then they’ll be talking to your competitors on video.

If you want to grow your business in 2018, then you need to learn and understand how to connect and communicate with your audience on camera.

Lucy Griffiths will share techniques to connect and build meaningful relationships with your clients on video.

It’s not just about going on video, it’s about learning how to engage, sell and grow your business through video.

Video enables you to have meaningful, and better relationships with your clients more quickly, and it helps you to establish TRUST and build RELATIONSHIPS fast… And this can only mean that clients are more willing to buy from you, when they like and know you. Talking on camera, enables you to connect and really create meaningful relationships with clients and customers.

Most of us have grown up watching television, we know and like the characters on our screens – we trust the anchors, we love the good guys, and we loathe the villains…..

Now in the video era, YOU CAN BE THE STAR. You can build your brand, and sell your story, and your message.

About Lucy Griffiths:

Lucy is a video strategist who trains entrepreneurs and business owners to harness the power of video to grow their business.
Lucy has been training people to connect more authentically on camera since 2006. In the process, she has trained reporters who are now anchors on CNN, she regularly appears on TV for BBC, CBS News, Bloomberg, AP and Sky and has set up TV stations in North Korea and Iraq.
For many years Lucy worked as a TV reporter travelling the world, but often her own fears stopped her from taking many amazing opportunities. She was the go-to person to sort out someone’s script, help them tell their story, and get them camera ready, but as an introvert, she spent a long time hiding her “voice” and being afraid to put herself out there professionally and personally. However, she learned how to overcome her fears, and just do it… and she can share her strategies, and research with you.

Along the way Lucy has interviewed many global leaders like Barack Obama, Hilary Clinton, Tony Blair and Hollywood A-listers like Nicole Kidman, Angelina Jolie and Hugh Jackman.
In her years as a journalist, she worked with the best camera crews, makeup artists and directors and, after 20 years of working in TV and radio, she wants to share the tricks and tips that she has learned to help you look good on camera.
Lucy also has a Masters Degree in Personal and Business Coaching, a Masters Degree in International Journalism and a BA Honours Degree in Communications and is registered with the International Coaching Federation.
