Present like a Pro
We have all experienced the business environment change to digital, whether it be the daily business briefing, the TEAMS catch up or the Covid update for your business sector for RTE News. We would like to feel confident delivering our information piece on camera in a professional manner.
This workshop is aimed at anyone who needs to increase their skill level in presentation. The material is not “sector specific” and the participants are encouraged to bring along materials with which they are familiar to work on as part of the training day. We start with a morning of virtual learning 9:30am - 12:30pm and then there is an opportunity for you to choose a one hour one -to- one session with Gary over the afternoon 11th May or a chosen time on 12th May. 4 hours in total.
Gary’s professional background is in television as a producer, director and scriptwriter. He has worked with most of the best known TV presenters in Ireland including Marty Whelan, Gay Byrne, Joe Duffy, Mary Kennedy, Ray D’Arcy and Kathryn Thomas.
In a former life he was an actor. All of this experience is brought to bear on his communications training interventions.
