By 2020, online videos will make up more than 80% of all consumer internet traffic. Video is also taking over social media generating 1200% more shares than text and image content combined. When it comes to engaging your audiences – the numbers show that video reigns supreme.

Responding to these trends, charities are increasingly keen to invest in video and a recent charity video benchmarking survey saw 74% of respondents claiming to see return on investment when choosing video content.

Join us at this conference, to explore all things charity video – from setting up in-house production to commissioning and working with agencies. We’ll explore how charities with a range of budgets can produce bold and creative films. 

On the agenda:

  • How to get internal investment and buy-in for video
  • Recruiting and retaining talent: building and nurturing your video team
  • Agency vs in-house production – knowing where to invest resources
  • Developing your brief – how best to work with agencies
  • Setting up in-house video with limited resources
  • Being bold and brave: creative storytelling with video
  • Recruiting and nurturing case studies for video
  • Ethical representation in video
  • When to say no: knowing which video projects to take on
  • Developing a content strategy for video
  • Participatory video – what, how and why?
  • How to better integrate video across your organisation
  • Low-cost tools for in-house production
  • Getting skilled up to do basic video
  • A showcase of the most inspiring video campaigns and what we can learn
  • Measuring success: setting objectives for video

Refreshments and snacks will be provided during the breaks and there’ll be a two-course networking lunch.
