"Before you open your mouth put your brain into gear". A truism. A great maxim. But all too easily forgotten in the hurly burly of the day. Interview prep? "Yeah, I'll be there in an hour". But the hour becomes two or three. And then you're in the studio chair, and it's your name they are calling and... "What was it I needed to say?" Don't risk messing up. Call TheCommsDoctor (dot com).
There's never enough time, however long the interview. You could have explained that better; argued back with more belief. "If only I could have cited that case study..." Setting aside just a few moments can help you top up your communications talents so you hit all the right notes, right on cue, right on time. With confidence. Confidence that only comes when you are in tip top health - after a check up with TheCommsDoctor (dot com).
Bring the camera up, place on books, or a box, so you are shooting horizontally.
Light your face, as well as the room. Don't sit with a window behind you!
Again - lift the camera higher, so you are shooting horizontally.
Don't talk to the scren, talk to us - look at the (tiny) camera!
Natural light on the side of the face, non-distracting background, Nice!
Don't rely on laptop or iPad audio, invest in a separate mic.
