Hi there, I’m Helen!
I’ve been a trainer for over fifteen years. For most of that time I created and delivered software training in education, health and customer relationship management. I’m a published author and Udemy instructor, too.
Over the past few years I’ve switched from face-to-face training to making online courses. With my background in training and my experience of blogging I assumed it wouldn’t be too hard to move online. In fact it wasn’t as easy as I expected! I was fine presenting to groups but talking to camera was a different story. I had to improve my audio and video quality and brush up my editing skills as well as making sure I included the basics I’d learnt as a trainer – aims and learning objectives, making sure each section of the course had an introduction, summary and a self-assessment at the end.
If it wasn’t easy for me to make the switch, what would it be like for someone without a training background? So I decided to help.
I started by creating done-for-you courses because creating content is something I’ve done a lot of as a trainer. Then, I started to help people with the tech that underpins their courses and online businesses, which you can find out more about at HelenLindop.com.
Hope to hear from you soon!
