My Guest today is Ian Forsyth, a Glasgow man who I moved to Inverness in the late eighties for a job with the civil service.

He went back to Glasgow in 1990 and discovered that the call of the Scottish Highlands was too strong to ignore.

On his return to Inverness, he went work for and eventually own one of the largest training companies in the area. The company specialised in business development and consultancy.

Seven years ago the business started to produce training videos. The project developed into a wide range of video production and that range continues to evolve.

Last year saw the business joined forces with PR and Communications company System2.

During our conversation, Ian explains the secret to making a good video. We explore the creative process what it takes to get stuff done. We touch on the importance of making choices and he even managed to squeeze in a few golf tips.
