Today we’re talking to Daniel Foster, Director of Strategy at TechSmith; and we discuss how using recorded video as a means of communication is becoming the new norm for hybrid work environments, advantages of recorded videos and annotated screen captures for asynchronous training, and why you should do away with perfectionism, and start sharing ideas with your colleagues before you feel like they’re ready.

All of this right here, right now, on the Modern CTO Podcast!

About TechSmith:

People understand information better when it’s communicated visually. When the content you create, the emails you send, or the courses you teach aren’t visual, people tune out and retain less of the information you’re trying to share.

We understand that it can feel intimidating to create visual content. You may feel you don’t have the skills or time to do it on your own, but TechSmith software and solutions are perfect for anyone who wants to create and share images and videos for better training, tutorials, lessons, and everyday communication.
