Coffee & Conversation
Meet your Creative Community
Our Coffee Meets are relaxed and welcoming so please don't worry if you're coming for the first time or on your own. You'll be greeted by Sarah, Nicola or Joey and we will introduce you around.
These informal gatherings provide a positive space for creatives, freelancers and small business owners to form connections, make friends and learn.
Talk to Camera like a Pro
Do you use Instagram Stories and Reels or Tik Tok Videos to talk with your audience? Perhaps you'd like to give your confidence a little boost when speaking to the camera?
We all know that showing the person behind the brand and human connection is such an important part of being a small business. But it can also be hard if you're a bit camera shy.
For our next Coffee Meet, we'll be joined by video expert, Marissa Holden, to understand how we can effectively communicate with our audience better via camera. Marissa will be sharing tips and insights to help elevate your Instagram Reels or TikTok Videos.
Whether you're camera confident or a reserved performer, this talk aims to share ideas for you to try out.
Marissa is a former broadcast journalist of the BBC and Sky News, where she read and wrote the news for national broadcast and produced and edited programmes.
She is now the founder of Smile Video, where for the past seven years she has been delivering video production and coaching to help businesses and charities stand out from their competition.
