Causeway Enterprise Agency and Women in Business NI were delighted to bring Niamh McAuley of Purple Dot Videos to Coleraine for a Mobile Movie Making Masterclass. A sold-out audience of lively female entrepreneurs were ready and willing to get to grips with using video to market and promote their products and services.

Over the course of the information-packed session, attendees learned what equipment they should look out for (and it costs a lot less than they thought!), tips on taking framing the perfect shots, the apps and programs, both paid and free, that they could use to edit their footage, and the free resources available to make their videos ‘pop’.

With videos accounting for more and more content online, and having a far better reach than traditional text articles, it was shown how vital it was for our attendees to get to grips with online video. Because as Niamh showed with some case studies she shared with us “30 seconds of video beats a sales pitch!”

“Encouraging more Female entrepreneurs to ‘Be Bold for Progress’, by growing their existing business or starting a new one, is crucial to our economic future. We are delighted to be able to deliver a world class event with our partners at Women in Business. Following the success of last years conference our sponsors jumped on board again, this year Causeway Coast and Glens and Mid and East Antrim Councils are headlining the event together, demonstrating collaboration at its best!

Our keynote speakers and panel are all outstanding examples of what Female entrepreneurs can achieve and our delegates must agree as the tickets are already selling fast. There was so much positive feedback after last years event, so we are working hard to raise the bar again. I can’t wait to see everyone on the 8th March, it’s definitely not one to be missed.”
