Land more opportunities, get booked up

No one can book you if you can’t demonstrate what it is that you do.

They need to see and hear you as well as get a feel for your speaking abilities. So make it easier for event organisers,
bureaus and corporates to book you because you will be able to demonstrate how well you speak live.

A demo reel gives people a taste of your skills, showing people what you’re about
and more importantly, how you can help them and delight their delegates.

Event managers and speaker bureaus want a sense of how you engage an audience and get a feel for your speaking abilities. A good demo reel can really help set you apart from the rest, you control
your brand and provide the exact message you want to share. It highlights the value you bring, how well you engage and entertain your audience and how you help solve problems and position yourself as
the expert in your field.

Brands and people I love working with

Mels energy, professionalism, and passion has been absolutely exceptional and I knew from the moment I meet her I wanted to work with her. If you really want to establish yourself.... and show people the lane you are owning then do a professional showreel with Mel, it's truly an amazing experience.
Alice Crawley – Speaker, Author

Kind words from my clients:

  • I have used Melinda on many occasions for portraits of my team and me. Her photos are exceptional and the process is always easy and enjoyable. I also use Mel for video work often. She is fast and professional. In the last couple of years I have recommended Mel to hundreds of speaker’s because her work is that good. She understands our business and what the client is looking for. Her gentle guidance and positive encouragement makes all the difference to the final product. I highly recommend Mel for anyone looking for a professional shoot.

    Leanne Christie - Ode Management, Ovations, Standing Ovations
  • Melinda Hird is the best in the business when it comes to video and branding portraits. There are a number of operators in the speaker world but I really think Melinda loves her clients genuinely and produces outstanding work. I love my branding shots and my showreel creates business for me every day.

    Lucy Bloom
  • I engaged Mel recently to do my personal branding photography and showreel video and cannot recommend her highly enough! I'm so pleased with the photos and video, but the reason I recommend her goes beyond the final product. It's the service. Mel totally invests herself in getting to know you, your story and what you want the photos/video to portray, provides great guidance and then she 100% delivers!
