I understand that all video production is a business decision for my clients. Whether for a narrative film, marketing video, training programme, youtube video or live stream series, there will be a goal, an audience, a story or message and a budget. I want you to see a return on your investment and will work alongside you to achieve this from concept to completion or whichever stage in the production you require.

It’s never been more important to understand how to manage for good mental health. Poor mental health costs UK businesses an estimated £45 billion per annum, yet every £1 invested in employee wellbeing, recovers £25 in reduced absence and turnover. West Sussex Mind offers interactive training and tools so managers can support their own, and colleagues, mental health. We look forward to welcoming you to our stand for FREE e-learning and to discuss the wide range of workshops and support on offer.
