Two Full Days of TV Hosting Power Skills – Teleprompter, Co-Hosting Skills, Interview Skills, Improv Stand Up Skills, Digital Hosting Skills, Body Language Training & more!

This new full two day format replaces Patricia’s 5 week TV Hosting night classes!

In these two dynamic workshop days you’ll start by mastering traditional and cutting edge hosting skills. You’ll work on-camera with Teleprompter using authentic scripts from actual TV shows and learn Patricia Stark’s “10 Laws of Teleprompter”. Patricia shares her short cuts, tips, and years of experience hosting over 25 television programs including international & national network programming with you, offering career guidance, dozens of her trademarked Calmfidence™ tips, and her expertise as a Certified Body Language trainer.

Next you’ll work with a co-host utilizing both teleprompter and unscripted bullet point hosting situations. Then learn everything you need to know about “in studio” interview skills and “man on the street” / red carpet interview skills. You’ll be confident making smooth transitions from reading Teleprompter segment introductions into guest interviews and outro’s. In the No Prompter Zone, you’ll learn to trust yourself and think on your feet with drills that include off the cuff improv stand-ups to camera, internalizing copy, turning scripts into bullet points and making them your own.

This two-day power packed event culminates with you hosting your dream show standup or segment. Patricia will then share her incredible in depth 56 page booklet of information that recaps the various types of programming, program formats, host “types”, audition scenarios, important points to remember, frequently asked questions, production company contacts, hosting agents contacts, website resources, marketing resources, demo reel tips, on-air image tips, headshot info and Patricia Stark Communication’s “10 Keys to On-Camera Presenting” & “10 Laws of Teleprompter”.

Train with the trainer who trains top broadcast & digital talent and is a working host herself! Patricia Stark works on both sides of the camera as a Media & Public Speaking Trainer, Certified Body Language Trainer, & appears regularly as a Guest TV Communication Expert & Lifestyle Expert.
