Your credibility and authority depend on your ability to connect with your virtual audience and take them on the journey with you. You need to inspire and move people to action. You need to set boundaries and manage expectations. You need to create an environment for innovation and collaboration. All down the lens of a camera.

The techniques you used face to face are no longer enough. You need a new tool kit! Dominic’s fast paced, interactive session will help
your leaders take their ‘on camera’ performance to the next level. They’ll learn the secret skills professional actors and television presenters use to ensure they keep their audience engaged and wanting more.

for decades. They make the difference between a Blockbuster movie and one that sinks without a trace. In this high energy, interactive session Dominic will share the skills he learned from his Hollywood hero’s to help your people sell more powerfully in person and on screen using stories.
