“ACTION!” How to use iMovie to Enhance Your Speaking Career with Dr. Bruce Weinstein

February 9, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Text is dead!  Well, not quite, but video is where it’s at, baby, and if you want to set yourself ahead of the competition and wow your clients, it behooves you to learn how to use one of the most powerful features of your Apple computer: iMovie.   

In this hands-on working session, you’ll discover how to unlock the power of iMovie and turn photos and footage into a stunning, awe-inspiring videos that will deepen the relationships you have with present and future clients, promote strong word-of-mouth about your talks, and prompt your colleagues and friends to ask, “Wow, how’d you do THAT?” 

You MUST bring a smartphone that takes photos and videos that you can transfer to a laptop you’ll also bring. (Don’t forget to bring the appropriate cables.)  Your laptop must have iMovie on it. NO EXCEPTIONS!  Sorry PC (as in personal computer, not politically correct) folks; this session does not apply to Windows-based computers, unless you’re able to run iMovie on yours (with, say, a partition, but don’t ask Bruce how to set this up, ’cause he doesn’t know).

You will create a one-minute video in class and upload it to YouTube before the session is over, unless you use nudity and foul language, in which case you will upload the material to another website.

About the Speaker:

Dr. Bruce Weinstein, The Ethics Guy, writes a weekly column on ethics, character, and leadership for Fortune and gives interactive keynote speeches on ethics to organizations around the world.  His latest book, The Good Ones: Ten Crucial Qualities of High-Character Employees, features inspiring stories from Jess Todtfeld, Karen Jacobsen, Jeffrey Hayzlett, Ann Zuccardy, and other distinguished members of the National Speakers Association.  

To relax, Bruce plays drums, watches classic films with his wife Kristen (who will appear as a contestant on Jeopardy! in March), and takes long walks through Central Park while trying to avoid whipping out his iPhone at every moment to take pretty pictures.
