A CEOs presence on camera needs to be a priority consideration when planning a video strategy. Leading from the front is what they do best so what better way for them to be front and centre of a video campaign. This is so important because it offers a face and personality to the business making it more relatable to customers and employees.

When a CEO communicates through video it creates an immediate sense of transparency and trust enhancing the reputation and status of the business.

A CEO sharing their vision, insights and expertise through video can effectively showcase thought leadership and industry knowledge positioning them and the company as true authorities in their field.

Being on camera elevates the CEOs profile within the business world and can benefit their personal career trajectory in the process. It enhances their visibility and credibility to a whole new potential audience that they previously might not of been able to reach.
