Always wanted to film your own company videos, YouTube vlogs or learn essential on-camera media skills?

Here’s your chance to learn the skills, develop your content and get you swiftly on your way to becoming a video pro.

Throughout this professional, fast-paced, practical course you’ll receive exclusive inside industry information, tried and tested training methods and hands-on practical coaching designed to get you producing videos and speaking well on camera straight away. From the very first day you’ll be presenting on camera, filming actual TV-style videos and learning how to bring out the presenter in you. To give you that extra edge, this intensive course will help you develop dynamic weekly content for your website or social media.

No experience needed since I teach the basics from scratch but if you do have some skills I look forward to teaching you even more and helping you get to the next step.

The course is also excellent for anyone wanting to boost overall confidence in themselves, improve public speaking and presentation skills, drivers, actors/models looking to upskill or professionals wanting to expand their horizons.

Your Teacher:

Co-hosting Channel 9 show Mining Matters at the Australiasian Oil & Gas Expo“Don’t ever let anyone tell you that dreams don’t come true, because I’m living proof that they do. I know from experience that with the right teacher, skills and drive you can become a media pro, creating plenty of entertaining videos. Ten years ago public speaking was my worst fear. Just the thought of speaking on camera paralysed me. As a person who faces my fears, and the Editor-in-Chief of two national magazines at the time, I decided to take a public speaking course with the best in the business which quickly led me on the path to further training in acting, voice coaching and presenting. So how did I go from a shy, unconfident journalist to travelling the world as a professional TV presenter and producer? Well, you’ll just have to join my courses to learn my secrets to success and I promise you won’t regret it. I’ve taken all the best bits from the many courses I’ve done and rolled them all into this one comprehensive course for you.” – Iolande Skinner.
