Video Performance Coaching & Image Strategy
…and raise the level of your video to meet your expertise.
I’m glad you’re here. Because video is unavoidable.
And the need to be at your best has never been more crucial.
An Expert or a Thought Leader.
Whether you use video for promotion, marketing, training
or an interview at the summit…
If your performance falls short or your message fails to connect…
You damage your brand, your credibility and your bottom line.
It’s not uncommon to be camera-shy.
To lack confidence.
To feel uncomfortable or self-conscious in front of the camera.
Or simply lack the tools you need to make video work for you.
And while you can get past these obstacles.
It’s nearly impossible getting past them on your own.
It takes an outside trained and discerning eye.
Someone with the skill to help you reach your personal best.
Someone to help you find confidence and credibility on camera.
To insure every aspect captures who you are and what you do.
Someone to put you in control to reach and connect with your audience for the greatest impact.
Because in every video something stops you from making your best impression or keeps your message from landing…
You undermine your brand and damage your bottom line.
And that is a loss none of us can afford.
If you are ready and willing to have your video match your expertise…
I’m ready for you.
Reach out. Let’s have a conversation.
See if we’re a fit.
And if we are. Let’s start!
Virtual or In Person. Global or Local.
Our work is individualized. There is no one-size-fits-all.
Private Sessions | Workshops | Group Sessions
Together we’ll reach your personal best. Not someone else’s best. But your own unique best.
And if you’re so new to video you don’t even know where to start…we’ll do that too!
Elaine inspires and educates her audience on the topics of…
- How to connect with your audience in video, when it happens, what it feels like and where it can take you in your business.
- How to find your ‘true self’ in video and discover the freedom that will improve every aspect of your business and your life.
- How to get past judging what you look like and learn to love yourself in video.
- How to calm your nerves or stage fright and feel more confident, at ease and in control in video.
- How becoming good at video will make you a stronger speaker and a better communicator on a stage or in a boardroom.
- How to use your imagination to establish a relationship with the camera and create a personal connection between you and your audience in video.
- How to become direct and strong in your performance so that your message doesn’t just land…but sticks and is remembered.

I spent 18 years as a Juilliard-trained professional actor working with some of the finest award-winning directors and designers in the American Theatre.
I didn’t only learn about acting at Juilliard.
I learned what it meant to be credible and watchable.
I also gained an appreciation and understanding of visual composition which lead me to see things from a creative point of view with a real eye for detail ever since.

I had already left acting but was tempted back in 2004 and 2009…
Running with Scissors
(Although the part written
for me by Ryan Murphy
was cut in the final edit!)
From acting I unexpectedly went into Marketing and Sales. I spent 22 years as a consultant behind company brands as a spokesperson, brand ambassador and educator in such diverse fields as home fragrance and concierge medicine.
I set overall company brand and marketing strategies, directed PR firms and graphic designers, edited company educational videos and drove website design in addition to writing content.
Whether selling products for the American leader in home fragrance or high-end concierge medical programs, I found an unanticipated love and ease in sales.
I first met Elaine Hausman at The Juilliard School. She was widely acknowledged as an extraordinary actress and her subsequent career on Broadway and Off provided her with an array of dazzling roles, both comedic and dramatic. I had the great privilege of working with Elaine on the Golden Globe-winning TV series “Nip/Tuck,” where I was a writer and Executive Producer. Elaine played a woman who accidentally lit her face on fire. Her performance was so rich and poignant that the entire writing staff demanded the character return and she soon after became a recurring role.
Elaine’s later transition into the world of business was a loss for the performing arts, but one that makes perfect sense. It allowed her to expand the unique and creative approach that served her as an actress so successfully; her keen eye for detail, her meticulous professionalism, her masterful ability to present herself with poise and dynamism easily translated into the fields of marketing and sales to great effect.
I’ve watched Elaine derive enormous pleasure and satisfaction establishing personal relationships in her business endeavors while helping to solve problems with the same passion, commitment and thoughtfulness she employed as an actress. There’s no one I would trust more to maximize my on-screen presence and help me represent my business to its full potential.

Elaine is my video performance coach on the wonderful mission to help me become more ‘credible & watchable’ during my online courses and trainings. Her guidance and methods are simply priceless. I went from being nervous to being confident, from being ashamed about my flaws (English is my second language) to being relaxed (even proud) about them and from being camera shy to being camera confident. Working with Elaine would be a total game changer for anyone who wants to perform at their best.
Larisa Petrini – Health & Aging Expert: BODYOLOGY
I got the Hillary Clinton part that I auditioned for! Wow! I can’t believe that I’ll be making my stage acting debut, and at the legendary Second City in Chicago, of all places. Thank you so much, Elaine, for giving me some wonderful acting tips that were super helpful to me and helped me nail my audition and get the part. Elaine also has a great YouTube channel that gives amazing tips for those looking to be more comfortable being on video. I highly recommend that you work with Elaine. Whether you need acting or tips or whether you’re looking to greatly increase your comfort level on camera, Elaine has the skills, expertise, and know how to take you to the next level. Thank you, Elaine!

I really enjoyed your videos. I really appreciate your content and even keel delivery. It’s inspiring to see you highlighting your gifting/sharing lessons learned/taught while using your visibility to demonstrate compassion for those who need it most.

Elaine, You have a magic way of simplifying the most complex of subjects and bringing it down to it’s bare essence. And in doing so, making it completely easy to understand. If only more teachers and people in general, followed your concept of speaking to be understood. It would make communication between people so much easier. Brilliant analysis! 🙂

I worked side-by-side with Elaine in a senior living environment for over 3 years. She has a gift for developing trust-based relationships. More than that, her personal standards of excellence and impeccability cannot be matched. Her strong skills reflect her high standards.
Millie Anderson – Owner/Senior Real Estate Specialist & Realtor ‘Mom’s New Pad’
I had the wonderful opportunity to work with Elaine Hausman in two different settings. I found her to be exceptionally personable and professional. She is warm, friendly, articulate and compassionate. She engages her audience with sincerity. Elaine was a true pleasure to work with. As my career has developed since working with her I have not yet met another person like Elaine.
