Communicating through the Camera Lens

Elyse A. Williams has over 40 years of experience both in front and behind the camera. She’s hosted television programs for WSB-TV Atlanta, WVFR-TV Roanoke, South Carolina Educations Television and WTVI Charlotte. Her production company, EAW Productions, LLC, specializes in broadcast and non-broadcast television and has received both Emmy and Telly Awards for her PBS, public television and cable productions….most recently for the national PBS series, Everyday Edisons, on which she served as writer and producer.

Elyse’s company has produced and directed hundreds of non-broadcast corporate training programs for many Fortune 500 companies, including Bank of America, Wells Fargo Corporation and Lowe’s Home Improvement Stores. Because many of her productions feature CEOs and other corporate executives, she has been asked by their corporate communications departments to prepare them for their on camera experience. As a result of their requests, Elyse developed fast-paced, entertaining and informative workshops and classes in executive presentation skills, specifically designed for enhancing and improving communication for both their internal and external audiences.
