Videos for your organization: free help is here!

GENEVA, SWITZERLAND – YouTube has helped us all fall in love with videos and it’s made it easy and cheap to make them and add them to web sites. One result is that there is a lot of rubbish out there, and a lot of people in small businesses in particular wondering how they can use video and have a quality product. I’m very pleased to see that two local companies, 23 and So Money, are offering a free morning workshop on how to use video for your organization, and that they’ve invited one of the owners of Geneva-Servette Hockey Club, Hugh Quennec, and GSHC’s communications person, Olivier Riethauser, to talk about how the club does this.

I can’t speak for 23 except for its reputation, but I worked briefly with So Money when I “starred” in one of their videos, made for the British Swiss Chamber of Commerce (BSCC). They were assigned the job of filming all 15 candidates for five business awards and the video clips give you a nice picture of some of the companies in the international community. I had a great time working with them and like to think that the short film we made was partly responsible for me winning the Unsung Hero category award.
