idea Decanter presents…

Our approach to creating videos for advisors is much like our approach to delivering presentations – stories matter. Idea Decanter presentations are geared toward training advisors how to successfully script videos that connect with their target audience. And we also believe that learning practical performance tips will make creating videos easier for anyone. Of course, showing videos and getting the audience on their feet for some interaction is a part of the plan. Every moment of your time matters and we’re not about wasting it.
