NEWSLETTER  - November 2020      

 MESSAGE FROM DIRECTOR: SHARON LYNNE 

I love the saying “when the going gets tough, the tough gets going”. This is surely the time to action these words.

It’s a tough time for everyone and my heart goes out to those struggling to cope. The good news is that it's getting better and production companies are gearing up to cast for presenters. 

January is going to be a humdinger of a month and why not? We will all be able to celebrate Christmas with friends and family in Australia and that in itself is a great sign that things are on the up-and-up.

So what IS in store for us all in the New Year.

Well.....

We all know how effective video has become in this technically and digitally orientated world. To ignore the magnitude of its effectiveness could be adopting the “ostrich-in-the-sand attitude”.

Think about how you could use video to brand yourself, your product, your service and your business. Because NOW is the time.

If you miss out on the timing of 'the recovery', it will be such a shame. So get going guys and prepare for your entrance into the TV and online industries in the New Year. Feel free to send me an email asking for some guidance .

So what will you need?

In short....specialised presenter training, a competitive showreel, a social media platform/s geared to promoting yourself as a presenter and a strategic plan of action.

All of this is offered to you through your membership with TV Pro Global. Just ask!

As well, the introduction of online TV is eventually starting to make a much bigger impact in the world of broadcast. It stands to reason. So  online opportunities for our new graduates and especially specialist presenters, is already becoming more abundant. 

So .... look forward to the rise in popularity of online TV: online entertainment, online lifestyle and specialty prgrams (eg health & nutrition; finance; DIY; cooking etc) and online reviews. These programs/genres are growing in popularity and at an alarming rate. 

Meanwhile TV Pro Global will continue offering students a choice to train online or live. We aim to implement all sorts of exciting new online training programs to help you upskill during and after these challenging times. Please see "training programs" on our website for all of our new training programs coming to you in 2021.

Dont forget casting season starts end of January 2021... so prepare now!

Times are changing rapidly and it’s time to adapt to these changes…. Don’t get left behind.

Take care y'all!

Sharon Lynne
