Make your 60-second video, please

TGS Members will look and sound like a million dollars during TGS Month

Have you made your ‘60-Second Meet Video’ for TGS Month yet?  Yes, you would! It should take you about 15-20 minutes to make the video. The questions below should act as a useful framework but, of course, feel free to be creative!

A suggested plan for your 60-second video for TGS Month: 

  • Who are you? 
  • What is your firm? 
  • What do you do (and why)?
  • What do you need? 
  • What would you like TGS member firms to do for you? 
  • How do we contact you? 


Try to film on a white background (this makes subsequent editing easier for Margaux and helps all members reflect the TGS Experience). Make sure you have good light, good sound and that your camera is steady. 60 seconds is the time you have.

Why not simply use your Zoom setup to make your video. Have a meeting on your own and record your results. Don’t worry about the editing, we can cut the beginning and ending off for you. 

Have a look at Marc’s 60-second video (live Presidential) spontaneous example. Many thanks, Marc, for your courage to share this video. It’s a good lesson that a spontaneous video is better than a tightly scripted one.
