If you’re not confident on camera, you might prefer that someone else present for you. But that means losing out on the opportunity to share your passion and expertise with others who could benefit from hearing from you.
And while quieting the nervousness and developing body and speech awareness requires intention, it is simpler than it might seem — and it’s a skill absolutely worth developing. And all it takes is practice.
Today’s guest, Tricia Jane Wiles, is an actor who has worked for Walt Disney World, SeaWorld Orlando, and the Orlando Shakespeare Theater before pivoting to the B2B space.
Viewers want to see the authentic and self-confident you, the you with a strong presence that’s built on some relatively simple tactics, such as what to wear, how to stand or sit, and where to look (the camera, not the screen).
Tricia is in Marketing Communications and podcast host of the Accelerating Revenue Series for True Influence, a B2B demand generation and account intelligence company. She focuses on storytelling and video communication.
Tricia shares insights on:
• What she learned about CX from working at Disney
• How she helps others overcome imposter syndrome to appear on video
• Why there are unique approaches to unique people
• What pep talk she gives herself in the mirror to build confidence
• How to improve video presence with voice and posture
