SWOB analysis

Many people have many good qualities that can have either a positive or negative affect on achieving their goals. The positive, good qualities are known as strengths. The negative, bad qualities are known as weaknesses. The positive are the ones that provide opportunity. The negatives should be less of a focus and more focus on the positive qualities.

I consider myself to be a friendly, outgoing and enthusiastic person.  I am well organised and I have an efficient and practical approach to all the tasks I undertake.

Consider Copyright Issues

The company must remember about copyright because It is important when you have a plan to make a documentary then the company should ask permission from the performers/model/student to fill out form by them for material that is required such as photographs or film footage.
