I am a Dr. Of Chiropractic and a former international athlete so most of my life thus far has been consumed with that. I saw the advert for the course and said yes! That's it! Perfect! After that the rest is history! I have been lucky enough to have been offered my own 8 min sports slot on the evening show at the city channel. I can't wait to start. So excited about the future! Watch this space!

I have a communications background and was interested in learning what is involved with presenting to camera, making a YouTube video. The course more than exceeded anything I had thought. It covered the preparation of an interview from the interviewers perspective to draw in viewers; reading a formal news bullet and using appropriate pacing for different news items and then to making a more casual presentation for YouTube or MTV style. I’d highly recommend the course.

Going into this weekend, I had no idea what to expect and, having completed the course, feel like I gained so much from it. I cannot thank you all enough for your guidance during the duration of the weekend, definitely lessons that will stand to me in of my future endeavours.

I thoroughly recommend the tv presenting course for anyone who is looking to get into the industry or even just to gain confidence and improve in live public speaking or presenting for work. We were fully immersed in a participative learning experience and gained a huge amount of knowledge in the 2 days. We got to rehearse different styles of presenting and then worked on a final show reel piece at the end which gets sent to you afterwards. The director, tutor and cameraman were hugely helpful and because the course is kept to a limited number for students, you really get to know and learn from each other and work efficiently together.
