Share with Hani Mourra – automatically transfer your Facebook videos to Youtube & Soundcloud


This was Hani Mourra and Steven Healey talking about

In a lively session Hani answered questions on how you can automatically transfer your Facebook videos to Youtube , Soundcloud, Dropbox and Google Drive.

I have been using the software for 5 weeks and as I do 6 to 8 videos per week it saves me time and improves my own workflow.

You have created awesome content on Facebook using video. I have too 🙂

Does the story stop there or can you take the video and show it to a wider audience.

I have downloaded them and then uploaded them to Youtube and it is a laborious, time consuming task.

What if there was an application that could do this and more ?

Since I have started using ‘Repurpose’ I have been blown away by how powerful the system is. ‘Repurpose’ gives our live videos a second life as we can use them to reach an even wider audience.

Since the moment I started using it I have saved hours each and every week.

Helping aspiring authors get their books out of their heads and into the world Friday May 6 at 1:00PM

Mindy and I have known each other over 10 years and she has helped many aspiring authors to publish their books.

Mindy is currently expanding her business by using Vmboom to fundraise (see )

We will be discussing the fundraising and how you can get your own book published

Mindy says

2.87 billion people want to write a book, but 2.58 billion of them will never do it, without the guidance and support of The Book Midwife.
At The Book Midwife, we help aspiring authors get their books out of their heads and into the world.

Most people who want to write a book never even start. They don’t know where to start or how to start. They have massive self-doubt about their ability to write a book, and they don’t know if their idea is any good. Some people start writing a book, but never get to the finish line. That self-doubt creeps in, they get lost or run out of ideas, or life just gets in the way.

Make your Social Media Count with Lilach Bullock Wednesday May 11 at 5:00 PM

Lilach and I connected over 10 years ago and have helped and supported each other over the years.

Lilach says

If your social media isn’t adding to your business – adding profile, reach, leads, sales, then stop what you’re doing. Because, you’re doing it wrong.

Social media done right can open up those opportunities for you. Done wrong and it drains your time, energy and resources – and can be pretty stressy too..

Martin W Smith chats about Content Curation with Cendrine and Steven


In an enthralling enjoyable conversation with Cendrine and me , Marty Smith gave an extensive overview of Content Curation

Marty covered best practice in Content creation and took us through the platforms .

Marty believes in building community and conversation using content and the power of story telling.

After our amazing chat with Kelly Hungerford in March , Cendrine and I are now looking forward to chatting with Martin W Smith of Curigami . Curagami works with e-commerce clients to develop creative apps to engage, involve and thrill customers.


Tuesday 26th April at 8:00 pm



Beyond the numbers, content curation creates connection and learning. I’ve learned more from Ana Cristina Pratas, Brian Yanish, Jan Gordon, Cendrine, Kelly Hungerford, Karen Dietz, Malek and others than attending expensive conferences, reading preaching white papers or listening to self-serving podcasts.

Being a member of the “curator community” is one of the biggest perks.

Curation is more of a journey than a destination for me. I read something every day I want to STOP THE WORLD and share (lol). I’m honestly all in all the time and that stance is important and why my tribe grows.

Blabbing for Britain using #Blab Hints, Tips and Questions Answered by Steven and Jon [Updated 02 February]


Every Thursday Jon Upton and Steven Healey host Video shows on Blab. We have both hosted Blabs and are enthusiastic Blabistas .

Each show features an introduction to Blab and the latest features .

The Aim

To show you how you can use Blab in your business and your networking activities.

Our goal is to help you to host your own Blab and take part live in other peoples Blabs.

The atmosphere will be  informal and you will discover how easy to use and useful Blab is .

What is Blab ?

Blab is a public video conference with up to four participants live streaming . The system integrates with Twitter and it has its own comments system for viewers to interact and ask questions which the video panel can answer.

Blab requires only a video camera , a microphone and earphones.  There is nothing to download for hosts or viewers . It works on Windows , Mac .there is an Iphone app and on Android it works in your browser

And while there are already group video chats services like Google Hangouts and Skype’s group video call feature, what makes Blab attractive is its focus on social networking and bringing the Twitter community closer together through video. It’s also (at least so far) a lot easier to use than the aforementioned services. Source Mashable

Show Formats

There are many different ways to use Blab. We’ve created a platform, and our users guide the content. Sometimes it’s tricky to know which type of format fits your Blab, so I’ve mapped out some ideas.

Brittany of Blab has shared typical formats here
