Get ‘on radio’ with the Gaiety School of Acting – The National Theatre School of Ireland and our Radio Presentation Workshop. We are proud to announce that this popular workshop returns this term, in our Temple Bar school, on Sunday 24th February with Newstalk Presenter Orla Barry as its tutor.
Orla is a national radio broadcaster with NewsTalk 106-108FM and a broadcast journalist with the BBC World Service in London. She is also a print journalist with over 15 years experience in the media.
Orla presents the arts and culture show ‘The Green Room’ on Newstalk and has been a presenter on the station since 2003. She writes a weekly column for the Irish Independent newspaper and is a features writer with the Irish Examiner. Orla is also an accomplished documentary maker whose work has focused mainly on Africa.
This one day workshop will focus on helping you find your natural voice and encourage you to keep it alive, alert and interesting for the listener. Key aspects of the day will include:
- learning the basic skills of radio presentation
- learn how to communicate one to one with your radio audience
- learn how to maximise your audience by what you say and how you say it
- listen and analyse your voice
- feel confident in your own unique presenting style.
Former GSA pupil Doireann Wylde gave the workshop 9/10, stating it was ‘exceptional value for money, very interesting subject, and thoroughly enjoyable day’. You can check out how she got on by reading her blog here!
So if you’re interested in getting your voice out on the airwaves, then this is the workshop for you!
