‘The individual feedback was invaluable - you have inspired a new career - I want to do more’
‘5 stars - so good to learn how to be yourself’
‘I’d 100% recommend you. It was fun, welcoming and I felt really confident in the studio’
‘You made us feel at ease and that we were capable of achieving. The improvement in everyone was amazing to watch’
Our MD Gareth Davies was really pleased to be the presenter for the Amazon Small Business of the Year Awards. He did 12 interviews across 2 days at Amazon HQ where he interviewed all the finalists, and the videos are now live on the Amazon website where you can vote for your favourite business.
It was a fantastic experience - chatting to so many entrepreneurs about how they have grown their business and what challenges they have faced both personally and professionally was so inspiring. The finalists are Free Soul,, Life's Little Recipes, Disposable Green, Gamely Games, LIttle Soap Company, Bearhug, Dotty Fish, Rock Star Academy, Sandy Leaf and Nire.

Don’t be generic! Too many presenters try and appeal to everyone, whereas you actually need to find out your USP.
Find your own style of presenting – from your scripts, to how you stand etc. There are actually no one-size-fits-all rules to how to be a good presenter – so work on your own brand. But make sure you brand yourself according to the area of work you want to work in…

All of our training is specific to the genre of work we think you are best suited to. So it pays to be different and it also pays to know where you’d fit in!
We have been asked to provide a presenter for a really exciting new weekly music TV series.
It’s a really big opportunity, and is for a brand new TV series on a major channel. You need to have an interest in music and culture….and have a transatlantic accent (that’s the tough bit).
