At Our Version Media CIC, we work with organisations and their communities to achieve impactful, inclusive and authentic storytelling using a range of media. We teach everything from producing videos that brings projects to life, to showcasing your social impact, to writing newsworthy press releases, or writing copy that informs and connects the people you work with.
Getting more press coverage
“Veronica is a true professional, knowledgeable and helpful. It was a great pleasure working with her. I have already put to a great use her suggestions and advice and this led to one of our community stories being published in the leading daily newspaper in Southampton and the area with a hundred of thousand readership.
For us this is absolutely critical because very often disadvantaged voices in the areas we work in are not heard enough so with Veronica’s help we are redressing this glaring inequity. Thank you Veronica so much!” – Alex Ivancevic, Lead Community Organiser, West Itchen Community Trust
Mobile Storytelling training
“I did Our Version Media’s Mobile Storytelling training because I do a lot of work in the community – and although I get lots of feedback from within the community, many people outside of that don’t understand what I do. I needed a way to share my impact, and I knew social media and video would be a powerful way to do that.
“I had never even tried videomaking until I began the training. I was taught what type of videos are most likely to make an impact and was practically shown how to create them. Technology and I usually go in different directions, but Veronica built my confidence and my belief so that I could do it, supporting me step by step.
“After I created and published videos about my projects, people from across the city got in touch to
ask how we could work together as they have seen the amazing things we are doing.
It feels like I am having new conversations every day with potential collaborators as a result of the videos and some of the videos have more than 2000 views! It has been incredible.
“Now I know how powerful videos are to make a difference. We know we have to continue using video to enable us to work with more communities – and I’m now sharing my video making skills with other people so that we can capture more of our impact.
“If you are looking for someone who is passionate, patient and professional, to help you capture your impact – then Veronica is the person to make it happen.” – Dr Abdoulie Sanneh, Community Organiser, West Itchen Community Trust
“What I really like about Veronica is that she was very open to helping after I reached out to her on Twitter. I had to leave the session early and she was welcoming with open arms to help me think about the sharing element of her session which I missed.
We then had a chat and I asked if she would help me with a script for my awareness video, as I wasn’t sure about the messaging I had come up with and she said yes!
It was really helpful because I got a professional opinion, someone who’s got so much experience in that area of work.
It made me feel much more confident to share my message, knowing that it was clear, concise and to the point so others would understand.
And that’s the main thing, that other people understand what it is that you are communicating. Now I have a visual to use on my platforms once I officially launch in 2021. – Antiqu’e and The One Wing Project
