An introduction to the basics of ‘delivery with passion’
First, we look at you and what might need improving. To communicate outside your comfort zone is actually easier that in sounds. It’s just a matter of getting the basics on board then practice, practice, practice!
‘Likeability’ and how to use it to your advantage
Being on TV is just like recreating real life in an artificial situation. Skilful TV Presenters and free flowing communicators are often thought of as another species, but is it just blessed ability?
Well ability is one thing but LIKE-ability is everything!
If there are three candidates for a job and all equally qualified, who will the employer pick? It’s easy. will always be the one they like the most.
Television Presentation is ‘real life in another bubble’
How do we replicate those cosy private moments in a social situation?
Why do we freeze when we are outside our comfort zone?
It’s one thing telling a joke in a pub or spouting a best man speech into a mirror – but why is it that when we step out of our accustomed normality we go to pieces?
How come we talk to people every day without thinking about what to say next yet go to bits in an interview situation?
Why can we talk freely and warmly with chums yet are like a cat in the headlights when we are called upon to clamber out of that safety net.
Reading your script
The wonders of autocue and how it can give you confidence
‘The eyes have it’
Intimacy is the key. We talk with our eyes – NOT our mouths!
