With the camera, you can make money and speak to thousands or millions of people around the world at the same time, rather than one person paying you for one hour of your time…
— Lottie Hearn, Confidence on Camera Expert, Trainer, Author
In this week’s episode, we’re talking to Lottie Hearn from ConfidenceOnCamera and Press Play Presentations (links provided in show-notes below).
Lottie is from the UK and lives on the east coast of Dublin, Ireland from where she serves her vast global network of students and peers. She has a background in drama and substantial experience working in media in places such as Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand and Ireland.
Lottie is hugely enthusiastic about people learning to present themselves passionately and confidently on camera. Lottie knows that you too can bring your best and most confident self to your audience….on camera of course!
Just listening to Lottie on today’s episode (or when watching one of her live-streams), you can hear the brilliant confidence which she projects. Lottie maintains that you can learn to be this confident and stream your own message to your own tribe confidently and professionally.
There isn’t a day which goes by without one of my connections broadcasting themselves via their iPhone or Android camera from Austin or London or Osaka or New York…etc.
