We are very excited to bring Chris West and his team from Video Narrative to New York City to host our first Video Showcase/Speaker Palooza.

The video material you receive can be used as standalone marketing videos or can be added to your speaker demo videos.

Your registration includes:

  • Fifteen minutes of stage time at Speaker Palooza
  • Multi-camera footage with mastered audio featuring wide-angle, close-up, profile, and audience reaction shots.
  • Pre-shoot Webinar to prepare for the showcase on April 17th, 2019 from 3-5pm EST.

Chris West is the owner and founder of Video Narrative, a production company that specializes in growing speaking businesses through brand clarity, speaker demo reels, and website design.
The origin of Chris’ narrative work came in a neurobiology class, where he first learned the power of story for organizing information in the mind.  Completing this research one May afternoon, he resolved never to create another video without telling an authentic story…a commitment that lead to years of research on the way we connect, learn, and grow through stories.

Today Chris works alongside thought leaders to increase their message, clarity, and impact through powerful narratives.  When not creating videos, Chris is out backpacking with his wife and daughter, and serves as the volunteer director of the Bukesa Children’s Home in Uganda, Africa.
