NEWSLETTER - September 2023
MESSAGE FROM DIRECTOR: SHARON LYNNE
We welcome a fresh start for everyone after the past three years of Covid challenges...including our new website which I am very excited to introduce. New castings! New connections! New drop-in brush up workshops and new placement!
At TV Pro Global we have always focused on our talents' progress and success in the media industry...and now we have some stunning additions to our business module to enhance the future of our graduates.
As you already know you will always need to stay abreast of current movement and changes within the industry. So one of the platforms we have introduced to help you stay informed, is our 'Proactive Presenter' workshop (now held online) to provide you with further information regarding current changes. Also to provide you with promotional options to "grow" your profile and enhance your reputation as both a personality and a TV Presenter/reporter.
We all know how effective social media 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 social media to brand yourself, your product, your service and your business. Because NOW is the time.
As well, the introduction of online TV is making a big impact in the world of broadcast. It stands to reason. So online opportunities for our new graduates and especially specialist presenters, is gaining huge momentum.
So .... look forward to furthering your career in online TV: online entertainment, online lifestyle and specialty programs (eg health & nutrition; finance; DIY; cooking etc) online reviews and educational programs. These programs/genres are growing in popularity at an alarming rate.
TV Pro Global will continue offering students a choice to train online or live. We are in the midst of implementing all sorts of exciting new online training programs to help you upskill and further your career in this amazing industry. Please see "training programs" on our website for all of our new training programs coming to you in 2023.
I will always be here to support you on your journey.... so reach out!
