“Vern Oakley, a master of production in the world of corporate videos and an accomplished filmmaker in his own right, uses his prodigious skills to relate to a broad audience the key elements required to communicate a message in our YouTube-driven world. Oakley furnishes a simple yet complete guide to the art of communicating authentically for the camera. Leadership in Focus: Bringing Out Your Best on Camera is essential reading for all who are critically concerned in conveying a message to a specific audience (something Oakley wonderfully refers to as one’s “Tribe”) with power and relevancy in our audio/visual, social media-dominated world of twenty-first century communications.”
