Learn to do great work on camera as well as behind the scenes in this immersive three-day workshop.

Anchors are the face of any television news station. Learn how to help your audience navigate the stories of the day, develop your own signature presenting style, and keep viewers coming back for more during this practical, simulated workshop. We take you through everything from wardrobe, make-up and body language, to on-air poise and crucial interviewing skills. Add on-air presentation skills to your CV and create your own showreel by the end of the course.
