Since lockdown Swindon Business Village has been meeting online from 8-9am on Thursdays, but took it usual break for August.

On Thursday, 3 September the first meeting of the new season will feature a talk from Holly Wagner, of Swindon-based Green Kiwi Productions, called Getting Started with Video Marketing for Your Business.

Holly’s talk will focus on how to create effective and engaging video marketing content, which helps to win new clients.

She said: “I’ll also explain the basics of video production, such as where to position the camera, and try to help with any fears or blockages people may have around video.”

The presentation will explore different ideas for videos, what to say to get people watching, and how just using a smartphone can create engaging video content.

Holly added: “I’ve studied video production for over a decade and this is the only career I’ve had. 

"I set up my video production business straight after university at the age of 21 and in the last year have moved over to video coaching, teaching people how they can create their own video content using just their smartphone.”

The event costs £5 to attend, and attendees will also have the chance to network and deliver a one-minute presentation.

Swindon Business Village is also looking for other speakers for the forthcoming season.

PR consultant Jo Smyth, of Word Worker, who helps to run Swindon Business Village, said: “We are always looking out for good speakers for our Thursday meetings. 

"We’ve had some great talks covering a wide range of topics, from marketing to sales, and even had one on how to deliver presentations. 

"Our criteria are that the presentations have to be useful, informative and not promotional. Ours is a very friendly networking group, which has been going for at least ten years, and we are always an attentive and appreciative audience.”

Swindon Business Village meetings are not limited to speaker-only events. The varying formats include business problem solving sessions and focused networking.
