A little about your coaches:

Virginia Willis, on-air talent, culinary television producer, content creator, and James Beard award-winning cookbook author.

Virginia was the TV kitchen director for Martha Stewart, Bobby Flay, and Nathalie Dupree and executive producer for Epicurious TV on the Discovery Channel, having produced hundreds of cooking segments behind the camera. In front of the camera, she’s been seen on Food Network’s Chopped, CBS This Morning, QVC, CNN International, and Fox and Friends.  

Kathy Hester is a blogger, recipe developer, and author of 11 cookbooks. She’s sold over 150,000 books to date and does cookbook PR on the side.

Kathy started doing live Facebook videos a few years ago and found that it forged a strong connection with her audience. She took those skills and started doing live online cooking classes that sell 5 figures a year, in addition to working with brands on Facebook lives.

Best of all, we will have a private Facebook group for us to go live in for the class and to continue supporting each other after the conference is over. In addition to that, each participant will get a free month of Kathy Hester’s Live Video Mentorship Program.

In our hands-on Culinary Media Training, we will teach essential principles of communicating your message, share techniques on choosing and developing eye-catching content.

Plus we coach you on how to be your best on camera and provide supportive, constructive feedback to help ensure your success. 

By the end of the workshop, you’ll understand how to transform your social media into a business tool. From positioning to promoting your brand, prepare to be creatively invigorated and ready to step into the spotlight.
