Learn to create videos with ease, even if you're terrified of speaking to camera
You know video is vital for your business, but you can't quite bring yourself to get started
Although the pandemic has given business owners like you a lot of headaches, it's also provided opportunities. You no longer have to pursue clients at niche networking events - you can talk to anyone online.
But talking to everyone individually is exhausting and you don't have the time. The solution is to either clone yourself or to start making videos. I suspect cloning yourself feels like the easier option. By creating a video, though, potential clients can meet you any time of day, wherever they're located.
Video is vital to your business. The longer you leave it, the more clients you could be losing. Also, it's annoying when you see other people who've got the hang of video - you're asking yourself, why can't I be more like them?
You've got a vague idea of what's involved, but you lack the time and the headspace to get cracking. And the thought of speaking to camera is making you quite queasy. You could outsource this stuff, but that's expensive and you end up dependent on someone else to make every little change.
Wouldn't it be great if you could record a powerful video in the time it takes to make a cup of tea?
How to Video Yourself with Confidence
In this course, I give you clear step-by-step advice on how you can create videos with confidence. I'll break everything down so it's completely within your grasp. You'll create videos with ease using a simple repeatable process. Other people will look at you and think, "Blimey, I wish I could do that."

Here's what we'll cover
There are six core modules, all beginning with P. We'll also deal with procrastination and perfectionism along the way. Ever experienced those two?
Module 1: Purpose
You'll establish the aim or purpose of your video and then decide on an appropriate style - are you raising brand awareness, selling a service, or solving a specific problem? With guidance, you'll gain clarity on what you're trying to achieve with your video and who you'll share it with.
Module 2: Planning
Everyone has the attention span of a flea these days, so your video needs to be no more than a couple of minutes. How can you say anything meaningful in that time? By carefully planning your structure. You'll learn about storyboarding techniques and implement my powerful method for creating a compelling message.
Module 3: Preparation
Even if you know what to say on camera, it can be a complete palaver to organise your equipment and location. Where's the best place to record? Is my smartphone good enough? Do I need an expensive microphone? You'll get clear guidance on choosing the right spot and getting the right equipment. Then you'll have the perfect setup you can use time and time again.
Module 4: Practising
You've probably been told countless times that 'practise makes perfect'. Annoyingly, it's true. It should be deliberate practice, though. You'll follow exercises for becoming word perfect and gradually building your expertise. By incorporating handy techniques, you'll be ready to give your best possible performance.
Module 5: Performance
Now it's time to put everything together - all those skills you've built in the previous modules. With the help of checklists, step-by-step guides, and lots of encouragement, you'll overcome your nerves and record a great-looking video.
Module 6: Production
Even if technology isn't your favourite thing, you'll get your video ready to publish with an easy-to-follow tutorial. There's advice on choosing the right software and platform, along with lots of tips on making your video more appealing.
And there's more!
Track your progress with a course workbook
You'll get a PDF workbook to help you track your progress and record all those ideas. There's no need to scribble on random sticky notes and forget where you put them.
As it's a PDF, you can create a new version for your next project, too.
Ask the instructor questions at a live webinar
This live event is an opportunity to ask anything you like and also to hear experiences from other students. It's an open forum where there's no such thing as a daft question.
Boost your learning even further by getting input for your specific project.
Share your work and get feedback
If you share your finished video with me, I'll give you constructive feedback so you can take your next steps with confidence. You'll get reassurance before it goes live.
This programme provides a safe supportive space for you to learn and develop.
About the course instructor,
Catherine finally overcame her horror of video at the age of 45. As an experienced coach and trainer, she decided she really ought to be able to do this stuff. Now she coaches and trains other business owners to do the same. She's also coached many people on giving talks at events such as TedX and Three-Minute Thesis.
With a background in technology, teaching, and a coaching, Catherine is ideally placed to help you overcome your own horror of video. If she can do it, so can you.
Here’s what people are saying about Catherine
I felt she was our guide
Catherine was great: clear, flexible, calm, entirely focused on the practical and emotional needs of her audience. I felt she was our guide rather than an expert deliberating from on-high.
Genuine support and valuable advice
This was a great experience and I always appreciate Catherine's commitment, genuine support and valuable advice. This has been the first time I have felt completely at ease and not left behind.
Good humour, understanding and empathy
Thanks to Catherine for organising and supporting us with such good humour, understanding and empathy. It was very welcome to feel supported rather than patronised – the tone was inclusive rather than didactic and I felt that this was a particularly strong point.
Save yourself time and money with a step-by-step guide
Of course, you could just hire someone to make a video for you. But that'll cost thousands of pounds and you might not even get the video you wanted. Then you have to go back and pay them more money to make changes. Even if you're happy with the results, you only have one video.
With the help of this course, you'll establish an easy-to-follow process that you can use to create countless videos with ease. You'll build your skills, your confidence, and your audience. It's an affordable solution that empowers you take control.

Frequently Asked Questions
I'm keeping the Early Bird offer available until I have enough people for the initial course launch in mid-February. This is to ensure I have a manageable group and can offer the best possible support. After that, I'll be offering pre-registration at the full price of £145 + VAT and those people will get access at the end of March. If you want the discount, please sign up now! There's no obligation to buy the course, but you're guaranteed the lower price if you do.
The first course cohort are guinea pigs. Yes, I'm experimenting on you. Although most of the course is already built, I'll be asking for your ideas on what needs to be added and also requesting feedback afterwards. As a thank you for being part of this project, you get a hefty discount plus some additional bonuses.
Absolutely not. There's no need to buy fancy gear, although it's a fun displacement activity when we're trying to avoid filming ourselves. Assuming you have a smartphone that's not more than a couple of years old, you shouldn't need to spend more than £50 on equipment. I include options for all budgets and give specific recommendations so you don't waste your money on duff kit.
Nope. While some course instructors insist you use expensive and fiddly software like Adobe Creative Suite (a snip at around £50 per month), I'll show you some affordable and simple tools, all of which offer a free trial.
You could binge-watch the course over a soggy weekend, but it'll be more beneficial if you pace yourself over a month. Indeed, I'll set you a 30-day challenge with milestones. You follow the course entirely on your own schedule so you can fit it around your other commitments.
Hmm, not immediately. This course is designed to help you get over the hump of filming yourself and creating that first video. It'll take a bit longer to become Marie Forleo, but you'll have made a solid start.
This course is designed for solo business owners in service-based sectors, such as coaches, consultants, designers, creative entrepreneurs and therapists. Even if that's not you, you might still find it helpful. Everyone is welcome.
In terms of your skill level, this course is ideal if you're just getting started or you've tried and struggled to make that first video. As long as you're a self-starter who wants to build your skills, you'll be fine.
If you start the course and decide it's not for you, I'll refund your money. There'll be no hard feelings. Time is a great healer.
Thanks to Brexit shenanigans, sales tax is now much more complicated (not that it was exactly simple before). If you're in the UK, you'll be charged an extra 20% at checkout; if you're in the EU, it'll be your local sales tax rate. There's no additional tax if you're anywhere else in the world.
Join the waiting list to be in the first cohort when this course launches. You'll get the special price of £42 + VAT.
There's no obligation to buy when registration opens - you can keep your options open. By signing up now, you'll secure that 70% discount. You don't pay anything now.
Thanks so much for reading. I know videoing yourself is a stressful experience - it took me a while to get through it myself. I'd love to help you get there more quickly and easily. Hope to see you soon.
