Rachel Sloane Partnerships offers in-house short courses and workshops for new and experienced radio presenters and production staff.
The sessions are suitable for broadcasters and contributors working in community or schools radio, ILR and BBC... or anyone who wants to professionalise their own podcasts.
Training sessions can be tailored to your needs but may include:
- Feedback and suggestions for improving your presentation style
- Preparing an interview and the secrets of getting good answers
- Researching and writing scripts and cues
- Preparing for a phone-in – and how to make them work

"Rachel has the ability to present live radio and live events with a skill that makes it look far too easy. Her natural approach has her audience at ease and her subject fully covered. As a public speaker she is at home with an audience of just a few or a few thousand."
Nicholas Pandolfi, broadcaster
