Filming “About Me” mini documentary videos

“I felt relaxed and unpressured and able to be myself”

rona-steinberg“OMG I have tears in my eyes – I love it so much. You are a genius. Thank you so much. And I love the out take – it has to stay. This is your medium – you have captured me perfectly. It feels warm and light and I sound like me and look like me – I can recognise myself – and all the little creative touches are so clever.”

“The big thing for me about being filmed by Julia was that I felt really relaxed and unpressured and able to be myself in a way I could recognise when I saw the final result. I felt really seen and understood by Julia and that was reflected in how she managed to capture my essence naturally and effortlessly. Plus the day of filming was really creative and good fun.”
Rona Steinberg – Outloud Coaching


“You helped me zoom in on what’s important to me and my business”

beverley-glick“Wow – I LOVE it! The way you have edited it together and included the old photos is SO clever. The soundtrack works really well too. I’m actually speechless! You have such a talent for this! Amazing. You have done a brilliant job – I’m so thrilled with the promo. It’s great fun to film and you’ve helped me zoom in on what’s important to me and my business. Thanks again Julia, you’re a star.”

“I don’t feel particularly comfortable on camera so it was a revelation to me that I could enjoy the process of being filmed! Julia was always unobtrusive yet gently encouraging and directive when necessary – especially when I was not being myself. She helped me relax into the filming and I’m absolutely thrilled with the end result – it looks natural and captures me very well.”

“It really captures me and my story”

leda-sammarco“A big thank you for my video. I love it! It really captures me and my story. I thought I would feel self-conscious being filmed, but it felt perfectly natural because I was in my natural habitat… a bookstore. I think you’ve created something special with these inspirational films, and I encourage you to keep going and offer this wonderful service to others.”
Leda Sammarco – The Book Detective


“I feel seen and understood in a way I so rarely do”

julia-elmore“I just watched the video and it is hard to put into words how I feel. I got chills watching it. You have really captured me… in the sense that I feel seen and understood in a way I so rarely do. It was such a moving experience… the whole process… it was a privilege to spend the day with you, I loved our chats and time together so much and then this… it is magic. The music is poignant and the whole video comes full circle so beautifully. I think you have done a truly wonderful job and I will be proud to share this. I am so very grateful to you. As one so rarely on that side of the camera, you have given me a real gift with what you created here. I am close to tears. Thank you so much.”
Julia Elmore – Artist


Business Coaching

“I came away from the session inspired to move forward with my plans”

“I recently had a coaching session with Julia having left my Corporate role at the start of the year to embark upon my own business. Julia spent a great deal of time talking through a writing project I am working on with me, which gave me greater insight and clarity to enable me to take the next step. In particular, Julia really understands the way that introverts work and how those characteristics can help you or hold you back in business. Julia’s manner is professional, and she put me so at ease that I really felt like I was having a chat with an old friend the whole time. Above all else I came away from the session inspired to move forward with my plans.”

“I felt reassured and heard”

“I found Julia to be supportive and knowledgeable, as well as down to earth and witty. I felt reassured and heard, and that she tuned in to my personality and situation, giving me some handy hints and tips to help me take another step toward releasing my inner entrepreneur! She is caring, understanding and a great listener – what you’d expect from an introvert.”

“Feeling more positive about our future business growth”

“Since working with Julia, I’m feeling more positive about our future business growth. We have been implementing a variety of new marketing ideas. It was a good decision to get more staff in the office, which was one of Julia’s recommendations. I feel less pressurised and we are able to use my time and the time of my colleague more efficiently. Importantly, I find I have more opportunities to take an overview of the business rather than get involved in every nitty gritty detail.”

Thank you for being there – I really appreciate your time and sharing!”

Creating Digital Products / On-line Training Programmes

“Julia’s knowledge, guidance and support has been invaluable”

Graham Wason - client creating on-line training programmes“Julia has been helping all being well to develop our first e-learning programme. Initially she provided copies of her guidance for creating online training programmes, which helped us to think through our target audience, proposed structure and format of materials and pricing. Julia is now helping us to make this program available online for purchase in two versions (facilitated and non-facilitated) and she will provide guidance on how to market it. Julia’s knowledge, guidance and support has been invaluable throughout.”

“Personable, open, caring and with great technical knowledge”

“I recently had a website audit with Julia. It was great to have Julia cast her expert eye over my site and deliver her constructive feedback in a non judgemental way that I could both appreciate, understand and implement. I found Julia to be personable, open, caring and with great technical knowledge & ability – a rare combination!”
Kay Gill: www.redshoescoaching.com

Jo James: www.amberlife.com


“Able to explain in a very clear and uncomplicated way”

“I had a telephone coaching session with Julia to improve the look and feel of my website. The comments that she made were creative, inspired and relevant for what was needed to make my website a more effective marketing tool.

In the past I have found that many computer experts deliver their helpful tips and hints in such complicated technical jargon that one is left wondering what on earth they are talking about. Julia was able to explain to me what needed to be done to my website in a very clear and uncomplicated way, without either leaving me in the dark or perhaps worse still, talking to me as if I was a half-wit!

I have much work to do to carry out all of the suggestions that she made, but I am on the way to a bright and shiny new website that will pull in confused gardeners from all around the town!

Auntie Planty thanks you Julia – you are a true genius!”
