I set up Pukka Presenting in 2003 to train TV presenters and experts for video, online and live events - anyone who needs to talk to camera or speak in public. My clients can be seen presenting on BBC, ITV, Sky, Channel 4, Channel 5, QVC, many other channels, and presenting for business online.

 

I teach TV Presenting courses at City Lit and The Actors Centre in London, as well as theatre schools, Universities, colleges, TV companies and corporate clients across UK. I have written two leading text books, So You Want to be a TV Presenter and The TV Presenter's Career Handbook; and have been a BAFTA judge six times to choose the best Presenters and Performers.

From 2006 - 2018 I was Course Leader TV Production and Senior Lecturer Media Performance at University of Bedfordshire; my background is BBC trained TV Director with over 20 years experience in directing top shows at BBC and ITV including Tweenies, Teletubbies, The Clothes Show, Crimewatch UK & BBC News and Current Affairs.

Unlike other training providers I discuss your aims and requirements before you book, to give you quality coaching and affordable bespoke training. Contact me for a free 15 minute consultation. I invest in you before you invest in me!

From March 2020 all training is on Zoom until further notice. It works really well!

Extremely informative, helpful and thorough, a real eye opener
