There is no greater indication of the importance of video than its ever-growing ubiquity. Not only that, study after study indicates that whether it’s a recruiting video, an employee training video, or a CEO communicating to employees, video equals audience engagement. Video travels fast; it’s very shareable.
Leaders need to be on camera to connect with people. Corporate video is no longer a nice-to-have. The Internet started as textual medium, now it’s about moving pictures.
