Join our expert panel as they explore what it takes to forge a successful career as a TV presenter.
You might imagine that TV presenting is all air-kisses, mochaccinos and winnebagos, with the occasional bit of autocue thrown in for good measure, but is it really as easy as it seems? In a fiercely competitive field how do you get noticed in the first place? Then how do you land the best gigs? And how do you ensure that you’re there to stay?
Find out how some of the biggest names in the industry took their first steps, learn what top agents look out for and how channels think about and work with talent. Then there’s the exclusive opportunity to show off your own presenting skills in front of the people who make the decisions.
T4 and Channel 4 presenter, Nick Grimshaw, will be quizzing key industry experts including Neil McCallum (Head of T4 and 4Music) and leading talent agent Kirsty Milner to sound out their views, advice and insight into all aspects of presenting, before giving feedback to members of the audience who want to show off their skills. With just one minute to deliver a piece to camera will you be able to prove you’re the next Dermot or Davina?
