If it’s not possible to bring me in for a keynote because of a scheduling conflict, you can always do the next best thing — arrange for a customized video keynote! What’s involved? You provide the production and video edit team — and Jim provides his detailed, customized insight! Or Jim can work with some established partners to pull it all together.
Here are a few clips that give you a sense of what we can do!
- the CEO of Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) engaged Jim for production of a video that he would use on stage as part of the opening of a big energy conference. The goal was to get across the seismic changes occurring in the energy industry. Here’s the result — “could the energy industry be MP3’d?” It’s a provocative little film clip that I filmed with TAG Productions in San Francisco in August — we took a half day to shoot and get some basic material down, and then they worked their magic to make a magical video!
- Another great example: Deloitte South Africa were extremely interested in bringing me Jim in to host their annual 2010 “Best Company to Work For in South Africa” awards presentation, but I was unavailable due to a prior commitment. So I worked with Riverbank Pictures, to prepare a 15 minute customized video, based on the theme, “What Do World Class Innovators Do That Others Don’t Do?”, which helped to set a tone of challenge and opportunity for those attending the annual awards presentation.
- for a time, CNBC and I had discussions about a series of video vignettes looking at the future. Sadly, it never went forward, but we did get some great clips, including one on a ski hill!
- and last but not least, a major telecom company engaged me for a series of clips related to technology and small business……
