You start to sweat, heart racing, adrenaline kicks in, knees tremble….. and then press record and….. nothing. You just can’t get that video recorded.

If any of this sound familiar to you when you go to record your own videos, this week’s chat with Nick Diakanastasis is defo for you. Nick is a Public Speaking Coach and a Trained Actor who is going to help us conquer those pre-recording nerves about speaking on camera as well as some amazing tips on how to feel more comfortable and natural in front of the camera. Especially now we are all using online chat A LOT more!

In this episode we cover;
– What should we do before going on camera
– Getting rid of those nerves
– Tips on body language and vocals
– The stupid (sorry main) things people are getting wrong.

Watch the episode video:



– Did you know you were breathing incorrectly? Now you’re checking out how you breathe right? This should come from your stomach, not your nose or throat. Try using this technique before and during a recording and see if you notice a difference in how you are coming across on camera.

– When you are pumped full of adrenaline everything is quicker, you speak quicker, you try to get to the finish quicker and your processing speed is quicker. Is this a good or a bad thing… well it can be both, but be cautious that this doesn’t affect the conversations you are having or the answers you give to questions. Slow down, as what you feel might be a slower speed will look more natural and will probably be much closer to the natural you.

– And finally, you need to give more than you think. Not for reciprocity, although you should be doing this anyway, but when on camera, always give more than you think. In fact, if you feel comfortable, you’re not giving enough – stretch yourself and give that little bit extra and move out of your comfort zone.
