These speakers all deserve to be YouTube stars! Who in our group is comfortable having their speeches made public by default, unless you say otherwise? I’m not proposing to change our policy — it’s important that members (particularly new members) be able to take advantage of the educational value of video without fearing being recorded. Still, if some of the experienced speakers would give us standard orders to publicize their videos unless they tell us otherwise, that will help us build our video library and further build the fame of Club Awesome.
Video policy: speech videos are intended as a tool for speakers to see their own performances and think about how they can improve. Even though these are on YouTube, they are published as “unlisted” by default, meaning they won’t show up in search results. Don’t forward these links or post them on Facebook or in any other forum without the speaker’s permission. From time to time, we may ask a speaker for permission to use a video as part of our marketing of the club. Volunteers are also welcome – if you’re proud of a particular speech, let us know.
