As internal communicators decide which channel is best to engage their people, they can often be turned away from video and audio content, simply because it tends to intimidate those who do not have professional equipment or experience with these channels. Regarding how to overcome those fears and embrace the power of video and audio content, Debbie told us that “you’re not going to create a Hollywood standard movie on your first outing, so let’s accept that.” She noted that the best thing you can do is just pull out your smartphone and film something, and even though it might not be great, next time it will be better.
In this episode, we chat with Debbie Aurelius, Co Founder and Director of Peppermint Fish, a communications and employee engagement consultancy specializing in leadership communication. Debbie founded Peppermint Fish in 2017, but before that she worked in internal communications roles and has previously done professional work in learning and development. She has combined these skills of teaching and internal communication to create her career at Peppermint Fish, where she focuses on the creation of podcast and video content, along with online courses for her clients.
