DOES THIS WORKSHOP ACTUALLY WORK?  HERE'S WHAT STUDENTS HAD TO SAY:

“It  was confronting and challenged some vulnerabilities in some of the team  members while taking others out of their comfort zone.  He is probably  the most engaging facilitator the team have had the pleasure of working  with”.    Raye Dapolito.


“When  you start a TV presenting course, you don’t expect for something like  that to change you at a deeper, spiritual level.  But that’s exactly  what happened when I started working with Peter.  He’s a gifted teacher  who will show you so much more than how to just stare down the barrel of  a camera.  Almost any acting coach can do that.  Peter challenges you  to find your inner strength and discover who you really are in order to  then project this confidently on screen or in front of a live audience  I  would encourage anyone looking to improve their acting or presentation  skills to work with him.  You will benefit immensely as both a  professional and as a human being”.  Dennis Kibirev.


"During 2018 we had the pleasure of working with Peter Mochrie in a training program to provide my staff confidence and skills needed to work on camera.  In current times, sales staff and corporate executives need to be able to deliver messages and presentations on camera.  They need to be able to engage with their audience through the lens, which for the novice, can be quite daunting.  Peter's training skills are well rehearsed and designed to bring even the shyest of people to the fore.  All my staff took away with them a new confidence and many skills which they continue to talk about and use today.  Peter's was by far the best course of the year."   Steve Dick.


“In  7 years of being in this industry, this was by far the best training I  have attended. I can relate what Peter spoke of to all parts of my life,  not just the Real Estate industry”.  Sam Bottari. 


“Peter  instantly put me at ease and proceeded to work on what was holding me  back.  After only a few lessons, I found myself becoming extremely  comfortable in front of the camera and difference to day one was  remarkable.  Peter’s approach involved looking at my inner psyche and  his spiritual take on life added a depth to his lessons that allowed me  to find my true natural potential.  Forever grateful and cannot  recommend Peter enough”.  Dean Howcroft.     


 “There  are good coaches that just coach people…and there are great coaches  that know how to connect and really take people to another level. Peter Mochrie is definitely a great coach and I am very grateful I have had  the opportunity to work with him. His care, experience and  professionalism all come through in his training which has helped me  develop as a person and as an agent”.   Michael Coombs.


“….never  in a million years would I have thought I could have learned as much as  I have about on camera presenting as I have from Peter Mochrie. His  process helped me in increasing my confidence not only on camera but in  all aspects of my life. I highly recommend Peter and his work”.  Cherie Owen.


“I  believed that I just did not have the gift of the gab when it came to  public speaking. Peter’s Media Training gave me the tools and belief to  feel confident in front of the camera and has really helped me when I am  interviewed at the races.This is Media Training at its finest and it  will raise your profile significantly. I wish that I had done this  course years ago.“  Michael Costa.


“After  presenting to clients for 37 years I thought I knew it all. Then I saw  my first video presentation and whilst genuine, I looked and sounded  very awkward. I booked in with Peter Mochrie and “WOW”, what an  improvement. With so much video today I highly recommend Peter Mochrie  and his Presenting Course.”   Joe Abboud.



Who this course is for:
  • If you present in front of a camera or need to improve your presentation skills, from CEO’s, business employees, students and artist’s wishing to present their work in ever competitive conditions.

Writing a Script

This is your craft, your business, your brand...there is no excuse for forgetting a line. This lecture introduces practical tips on how to learn your lines for your camera or audience presentation with authenticity, energy and confidence. 


Using your memory is key to learning lines.  Knowing your lines whether you are presenting in front of a camera or an audience is absolutely critical in immersing yourself in your message and it's flow.  Practice and the tips involved in this lecture will make it easier for you to master this most crucial element in presenting. 


Scientists recommend walking with your script in hand.  Going for a walk benefits your brain and your memory whilst trying to remember lines.  "I have no idea why  this works, but they said if you actually walk instead of just sitting  there, and you have your muscles moving while you're attempting to  memorize, somehow it speeds the brain up."


Writing it down by hand is very beneficial.  "It's a shortcut, and it  gets that hand-eye-brain coordination muscle working."  Earlier this month Scientific American  published research that found "students who write out their notes on  paper actually learn more "than those who use a laptop".
