Working in conjunction with Business Northumberland and Berwick Upon Tweed’s Welcome Visitor Project, we’re pleased to announce our first virtual networking session, exclusively available to businesses across Berwick Upon Tweed & North Northumberland, on Thursday the 30 April from 2pm.

So grab a cuppa, pull up a chair and say hello at our first virtual networking event for Bitesize Business in Berwick and register your attendance here https://bit.ly/BitesizeOnline

You’ll get a few minutes each to promote your business around your neighbourhood but also to meet the team from Business Northumberland, NBSL and Berwick Upon Tweed’s Welcome Visitor Project.

You’ll also be able to meet Sarah Jamieson from Berwick’s Pictorial Photography who will be able to build your confidence around our new virtual landscape and how to get the best from the virtual camera.  Just a few small tweaks can give you more confidence in your virtual meetings and you’ll  no longer be distracted by that little cringe thumbnail in the corner with your face on or feel like Mr Potato Head.

Advice like:

  • Where to position yourself in the house to ensure the best lighting
  • Camera positions – the dos & don’ts of where your camera should be positioned
  • Distance from the camera & orientation
  • Managing your backdrop
  • The potential for filters – and don’t forget to raid the make-up drawer – a touch of concealer can work wonders

And don’t forget to position yourself close to the router – there is nothing worse than the signal dropping out and your face disappearing!  Fancy reading Sarah’s more detailed blog?

During this meeting, NBSL will also be offering 1-2-1 consultations on an individual basis to any Berwick businesses as part of the wider Bitesize Business in Berwick initiative so you can start thinking about planning ahead.
