On-Camera Presenter Training

Learn how to be natural, engaging and confident when presenting to camera

This is a half-day on-camera presenter masterclass will develop your presenting skills and help you confidently front videos on websites, social media and corporate videos.

What you’ll learn

How do you record pieces to camera with the confidence of an experienced TV reporter? How do you hold the attention of your audience and project relatability and likeability? This on-camera presenting masterclass teaches the skills you need to manage your nerves, project your voice and interact directly with the camera as though you’re speaking to a person. 

The on-camera presenting training combines techniques from media training and public speaking training, as well as mindfulness and acting tips to help you develop more confidence and record engaging video for your website, social channels and events.

How you’ll learn

The presenter masterclass is led by a broadcast journalist with decades of experience as a news anchor, presenter, host and MC. Over four hours, they’ll share their expertise and demonstrate the essential skills needed to interact with the camera with poise and confidence.  

Once the theory is covered, you’ll present pre-prepared scripts to camera, followed by trainer critique. You’ll work as a group but each delegate also benefits from some individual coaching by the trainer. After training, you’ll receive a link from which to download your recordings.
