David McClelland, Technology Presenter BBC Rip Off Britain, ITV Good Morning Britain
Kathryn is my go-to expert for presenter training. Kathryn’s tips and advice absolutely helped me to prepare for auditions, and not long after training with her I got a dream
job as a children’s television presenter!
Sita Thomas, TV Presenter Channel 5, Milkshake
I set up Pukka Presenting in 2003 to coach presenters for TV, online and public 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 and many other channels, on a range of media platforms, in their companies and workplace being recorded to video, presenting as part of their business.
Until 2018 I was Course Leader TV Production and Senior Lecturer Media Performance at University of Bedfordshire for 12 years where my course gained 100% student satisfaction in the National Student Survey.
My background is BBC trained TV Director with over 20 years experience in directing top shows at BBC and ITV.
For 16 years I’ve been devising and teaching TV Presenting courses at City Lit and The Actors Centre in London’s Covent Garden, as well as theatre schools, Universities, colleges, TV companies and corporate clients across UK. I've written two leading text books, So You Want to be a TV Presenter, Nick Hern Books 2010, and The TV Presenter's Career Handbook, Focal Press 2014. I've been a BAFTA judge six times to choose the best Presenters and Performers.
I give private coaching in NW London in all genres of presenting, at your own pace. Take your presenting to the next level - train with me in open courses or privately.
Extremely informative, helpful and thorough, a real eye opener
