Witnesses want help on testifying “live and on camera”
Most witnesses have never testified in a deposition. Plus most witnesses have never testified “live and on camera”. So naturally they have some form of stage fright as they await the day of their deposition. They want you to give them advice not only on how to respond verbally to the questions, but also to handle themselves before a video camera.
But witnesses don’t ask for special help from you on being photographed. Their silence is a natural social protective stance. They do not want to reveal feelings of stage fright before a camera, which they assume most people do not have. Help them. Give them confidence by using a standard appearing skill builder they can study at home. Making it “standard” appearing means to them that you are not singling them out as being a weak person.
Witnesses want this help. Give your witness the advice they want before they talk in front of a camera.

- how to testify and how to avoid traps in depositions,
- how he/she presents him/herself to the jury, and
