Open Courses & Online Training

I run a range of public courses throughout the year, which are also available for in-house teams.

For online learning, head to the Penny Haslam Academy.

Open Courses

Smartphone Video for Business Masterclass

What’s it about? It’s a practical one-day course to filming and creating quick, easy, engaging and compelling video content for your business or organisation.

Who’s running it? There’s me, bringing my journalist and presenter skills, and my other half Steve Blears, who is a TV producer and director, who makes factual entertainment programmes for BBC1, Channel 4, Sky and Yesterday). We don’t send associate trainers – you get us and all of our professional experience.

Who’s it for? Sign up if you want to start, or get better at, making your own video content on your smartphone. We focus on filming techniques and content creation – so you will never look or sound like an idiot (which is most people’s fear!).

Will I get individual help? Yes, we limit the number of people attending to 12 – so you will always get individual attention and suggestions as to how to improve.

When are they running? We run four public courses a year, usually in Manchester City Centre. Alternatively we can run them in-house for your teams, or for your network.

“I now have the skills and knowledge I need to feel confident in front of the camera and get my videos looking professional for social media and my newsletters. Thanks so much Penny!”.

Rosie Huckle, Stylist

“A very valuable day’s training! It was useful in that it was very practical, easy to understand and we were all able to practise and get feedback from Penny and Steve. In today’s competitive world being able to do professional-looking videos will give you advantage over your competitors. I highly recommend this course.”
