Move Past Boring, Mutually Unrewarding Video Calls & Meetings

Envision a virtual meeting where you and your customer feel like you’re sitting across from each other having a cup of coffee. Impossible?

Not any more!

Screen actors, television reporters, and digital influencers have been accomplishing this for decades!

Look Me In the Eye breaks new ground with surprising techniques from on-camera pros for creating a near in-person experience on video that drives relationships and sales.

Look Me In The Eye:

Using Video to Build Relationships with Customers, Partners, and Teams


Whether you engage in virtual meetings, video calls, or recordings, this practical guide offers a year’s worth of tips to help you build deeper relationships and communicate with greater influence and credibility.

Look Me in the Eye will:

  • Show you the quickest and easiest way to connect with one or 1000 on video
  • Expose how the camera “sees” you and provide tips to look, sound, and be your virtual best
  • Clarify when you absolutely, positively must look at the camera (and when it’s OK to sneak a peek!)
  • Reveal the acting technique for connecting with people who are not on video
  • Demystify how to read body language, manage content and tools, and stay engaged with your audience

"In the future, will you be spending more time on camera or less? The honest and obvious answer is more, so we can't just show up. We must be intentional. What Julie provides here is expert advice - some of it counterintuitive, much of it overlooked, and all of it practical - to help you connect with people in more meaningful and memorable ways."

"Julie's style of writing is easy to consume and makes even difficult concepts easily understandable.  This is an excellent book, but my favorite chapters concern "cheats" and video body language which is completely different from live interaction. Excellent insight. Julie shows you how to make the camera work for you.  This book will be required reading for my entire sales staff.  And remember- the camera is your friend!"
