A Virtual Producer is responsible for providing support so that the presenter can focus on sharing their information with participants. The Virtual Producer is a vital resource, providing support before, during and after your session.

This support includes making sure the technology works smoothly, the presenter is comfortable, and looks and sounds great, as well as helping participants that may have any difficulties during the session.

Principal, O'Neill Leadership

I’ve created a monster! Having introduced Jake to the world of virtual production, a skillset parallel to the podcasting, video editing, and graphic design experience he already has shown mastery over, I never would have guessed how quickly he’d embrace and expand on the nuanced skills in virtual producing. Jake is a go-to source and support for my business in a variety of capacities, and performs exceedingly well at producing across a variety of platforms. I’m comfortable enough to introduce him to client systems I’ve already got deep roots in, and he takes the projects off at a running pace. He’s reliable, resilient, and brings new insights to the evolving needs of virtual meetings and conferences. I highly recommend him, and if you hire someone else (other than me) I would encourage you to rethink your options.
