About your trainer

Niamh Guckian

Niamh Guckian is a highly-experienced television producer director, formerly with RTÉ, The Irish Times and Deutsche Welle Akademie. Additionally, as a BBC-qualified trainer, she has been mentoring and training content makers in video for social media over the last ten years.

Niamh has a deep understanding of the needs of businesses as they leverage their video content to achieve challenging commercial and editorial targets, while maintaining brand integrity.

Niamh is the founder of Go Motion Academy, which she calls ‘film school for business.’ The academy is founded on the three key principles of high broadcast standards, excellent storytelling, and training that is accessible for everyone.

“What sets this training apart is my extensive experience with content. I have been responsible for broadcast output throughout my career, and I understand the pressure that goes along with that, as well as the great reward of making meaningful content that audiences enjoy.
My objective is not only to give people the skills to film and edit with confidence, but to help them to generate great ideas for video stories. How an idea becomes a piece of video, and then a series of videos that engages a distinct target audience – that’s the key to sustainable and meaningful social video content.”

Her combined experience as a distinguished content producer, and as a trusted media trainer makes her a hugely credible force in the field of social video.

Her courses are tried and tested and designed to get results.
