Women’s AM is an organization offering women in the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows area a forum to meet and a chance to build a base for mutual support and motivation, both personally and professionally.

The future has arrived and Video is here to stay, In her vibrant and energetic way, Christina Waschko, shared helpful tips and tools for creating videos using our smart phones so we can all “Shine OnLine”! This was not your typical presentation where, as a matter of housekeeping, attendees are asked to turn off or mute their phones – no, instead we were encouraged to bring them out and hold them high, selfies a must. Movement, angles and creativity are important, and Christina offered the following content suggestions to achieve the best attraction to our online videos:

  • include latest trends
  • explain industry terms
  • share “how-to” instructions
  • show behind the scenes
  • propose a challenge
  • offer an invitation / testimonial
  • share a struggle or obstacle
