Award Winning television presenter and executive producer, Bolanle Olukanni, best known for hosting Moments with Mo, Project Fame and On the Carpet with Bolinto, has launched a Television Presenting Workshop in association with leading talent management agency, Temple Management Company.
An avid presenter, Bolanle possesses a passion for inspiring the next generation of presenters, a cause she is equally committed to.
She recently started a cohort for budding presenters titled: “Everything You Need to Know About Becoming A Presenter.”
Her experience as a presenter has taught her the art of proper and effective delivery while anchoring, a knowledge she desires to pass on in the One-Day Intensive Workshop.
The workshop will feature training on Television Hosting Techniques, Interviewing, Red Carpet Interviews, TelePrompTer Techniques, Channeling your personality to build a strong on camera personality and Individualised coaching.
Speaking on her decision to launch the course, Bolanle said: “I get numerous emails and messages from aspiring presenters and it was hard to keep up with responses. I wanted a central platform where I could coach and teach them on all the experience I have gotten over the years. She added, “I love being a presenter and it’s an art that is teachable. It definitely helps to have natural talent but there are techniques that need to be learnt to really excel at it. I know when I was learning I had to travel to America to get training. It ought not to be that way. I am excited about this and can’t wait to see the results of its impact on the industry.”
Commenting on Temple Management’s partnership on the project, Director of Communications, Temple Management Company, Terfa Tilley-Gyado, remarked: “At Temple, we always see the larger picture and with a program like this, we are confident that its impact will be far reaching. We work with people whose ideas transcend the now and look towards the future. This is one of such platforms we seek to be associated with.”
Bolanle was awarded the Future Award Prize for On Air Personality in 2016 and has currently secured a spot on the Leading Ladies Africa – 100 most inspiring women in Nigeria’s list for 2018.
The Television Presenting workshop will take place on April 21 in Lagos.
