This Emmy Award-Winning Broadcast Journalist was able to demonstrate her on-air confidence and skills in a way that empowered participants that are not as at ease on-air. In today’s changing multimedia newsrooms, journalists are expected to be camera ready, to speak with authority, and represent their expertise on panels. Thanks to Bofta our members are ready to deliver crisp and concise on-air interviews and speak in public with confidence and authority.”
