In May 2020, we introduced a series of webinars that revolve around subjects like sports, video analysis, player development and a lot more.
“We in Veo normally love to come out and meet customers and others from the football community, but this hasn’t really been possible for the last six months,” says Jerry Jarnald, Head of Partnerships and Tournaments in Veo.
“So in the beginning, the webinars were fueled by a wish to get to meet people who were interested in Veo and get in a dialogue. In a way, we wanted to mimic going to conventions and tournaments.”
Quickly, we realised that the interest for knowing more about the use of video and analysis in different settings is there. And as of today, eight webinars have been held, two are ready for signups and many more are coming up.
Giving back to the community
“We all love football here in Veo and the football community worldwide is what’s brought us to the good position that Veo Technologies is in. With these webinars and other educational activities that we’ll reveal soon, we hope we can give something back to all the coaches, analysts and other staff who have supported us from the beginning,” says Jerry.
After being in the football business for five years, we have a lot of “friends of the house”. This gives us the opportunity to assemble a catalogue of very different subjects, all related to video in sports.
“We strive to have a diverse array of webinars. From referee development in Northern Ireland to how video can be used in the college recruiting process in the USA. We prefer to be very specific in our topics. This means that all of our webinars probably don’t apply to everyone. But we prefer to get to the bottom of the topic that we’re discussing.”
Next webinar coming up
Our next webinar is on Thursday August 27 and we are honored to have Ioannis Ampatzidis from the Greek top club PAOK FC as our guest.
“We’re also fans of football in Veo. So inviting coaches and analysts from big clubs like PAOK FC, or Burnley FC like we did back in June, is of course very exciting for us, but we hope it’s also interesting for people in smaller clubs to get a glimpse of what is going on in clubber with a much bigger budget and setup. We always try to make it relevant and inspiring for even small amateur clubs or more modest youth setups as most of our users come from these environments.”
Jerry and Ioannis will have a talk about the analysis process in PAOK’s well-renowned academy. Taking part of the webinar will help you understand how and why top level European academies analyse their matches and training sessions. And we’ll also touch on the different analysis software and hardware solutions they are using (hint: maybe a certain little green camera has a role to play).
And of course, it will be possible to ask all questions that might come during the webinar.
