"I just attended Julian’s Get Video Smart seminar and I can honestly say I have never before got such value for money in a course. The content is like a massive brain dump! Julian could easily spread the course over a number of days but has captured it all in such a way that the compressed course is easily absorbed in a one day program that eliminates too much time off work. He has the most easy, practical and common sense solutions for your to use to help streamline the process, improve the results and really allow you to connect to your audience. It is obvious that Julian’s many amazing life experiences have allowed him great insights into the human psyche and it shows in his own video content and the course he has designed to share his extensive knowledge (in life and videography)"
I get it. You have high standards. I advocate the humble smartphone will revolutionise video for business. Really? Is a smartphone good enough?... yes ... I shot and edited this video with my iPhone 7. I would happily submit this to National Geographic, another organisation with high standards.
Because I know EXACTLY what you are facing.
I spent 25 years behind the camera as a TV cameraman for ABC TV, BBC, National Geographic. I gained the elite A.C.S. accreditation for cinematographers.
I moved in front of the camera by writing and presenting 700 online videos including a Youtube channel with 30 million views.
I performed 2000 magic shows.
Then there's my own journey from stutterer to professional speaker. Everything I say is lived experience underpinned by science.
"I operate at an Executive and Board level but I have always felt my communication skills were not as professional as I would like. That all changed after I spent 6 sessions with Julian Mather. I now confidently command a room while making presentations, host an industry focused podcast plus I'm heading towards presenting more videos. Whatever stage your personal life or professional career is at I recommend you contact Julian Mather and lift your communication skills to the next level."
"Julian is a master in front of and behind the video camera. His expert advice got me recording professional videos in no time at all. Thanks heaps Julian."
"I learned some great tips from you that will give me a great head-start in avoiding some of the typical pitfalls that could damage my personal brand online. Your information is priceless!"
"I've been videos for a while but there is so much more I learnt today, If you're starting out then I suggest you just get yourself to one of Julian's courses. You will save a bucketload of time, energy and money"
"We've already made some videos for educating nurses but we are now going to going to produce way better, smarter, more interesting, short, to-the point videos"
"Julian’s understanding and ability to take a complicated subject that is difficult for most people to address and make it so simple that in 90 minute workshop he helped me understand how to use video and specifically the smart phone to enhance my business and personal brand. His workshop was practical and well supported by his recent book."
"An enjoyable and very informative course. I feel quite confident to produce some well considered video now"
"Thank you too for a very intriguing, inspiring and funny presentation: it was cool, with many smiles and.... oh sooo very eye-opening. Most of us, I would say, were stunned to see how much you can do with a mobile phone when it comes to video....amazing!"
"I heard Julian speak about the power of video, and how we can shoot them from just our smartphones. He was able to draw me in with his utterly captivating stories, told in true theatrical traditions, unfolding scene after scene, having me at the edge of my seat. He shared the videos he has made with such aspirational artistry that they inspired me to do it in similar vein. Finally, he was able to boil down his ideas into practical, immediately implementable action steps, all within my smartphone!"
"Loved your Get Smart video workshop, Julian. Fantastic info! "
"Engaging, entertaining and brilliant! Julian Mather makes even the most ordinary person a video superstar with his tricks, tips and deep expertise and knowledge as a film maker "
"I attended Julian's Get Smart Video classes twice. Not only is he one of the most entertaining speakers in the business, but he also makes complicated things so simple. His speech about shooting and editing video gave me so many brilliant ideas/hacks, and I thought I knew everything about the subject. His passion is infectious. No one in the room was looking at their mobile when he spoke."
"Julian delivered a fantastic Get Video Smart course for our senior leaders at Gold Road Resources. Julian is a highly engaging facilitator who knows his stuff in this video space. He helped removed the fear for some, increasing both competence and confidence."
Society is retraining us to consume content with a smartphone in one hand and a coffee in the other. Humans are addicted to convenience and words are too hard to read on mobile devices. Video is winning. Business needs to catch up. Use your smartphone to deliver compelling video messages that give you an unfair advantage in the marketplace
Video communication skills are no longer nice-to-have, they’re fundamental for 21st century business.
Video will account for 82% of all consumer online traffic by 2021 *CISCO vni
Video messages for business are a timely, quick, authentic way to say what needs to be said and have it heard.
The tech side scares us a bit but the truth is none of us wants to look unprofessional. We worry how we will look, how we will sound, if we will remember what to say. Will people say bad things? What about my accent? 59% of adults are more self conscious on camera than in real life.
"Anyone using video these days for business or profile, you need to do Julian's workshop. He has a wealth of knowledge and a passion for presenting it. 5 Star workshop! "
"A must do workshop for anyone in business wanting a fresh and innovative way to communicate with customers or potential new customers. Julian takes the mystery and fear out of making your own professional videos. Step by step, low cost and achievable with just a day's training"
