Feel happy to say I look forward to Saturday's now - thanks again
All of a sudden I was being told that I could make a career out of TV...all I can say is thanks so much for all the advice and encouragement, please pass on those thanks to Glenn; the only way I was any good at that audition was because of the course at Pozitiv.
My first studio presenting job was a bit daunting, but Glenn put me at ease and after a couple of hours of training - with many invaluable tips - sent me on my way. Invaluable help gratefully received.
Glenn and his team have consistently provided us with sound PR advice and guidance. Their honest, no-nonsense approach has been invaluable to our business. I would have no hesitation in recommending Glenn and Pozitiv to anyone looking for a professional PR consultancy.
The advice you gave us Glenn was priceless - the show would have been a lot different if we hadn't had time with you. Thank you SO much for your time, effort and honesty! You are fantastic at what you do Glenn and wish you all the best for the future!
Channel 4 regularly use and recommend Glenn and his team at Pozitiv for developing talent. They are uniquely professional in what they offer and we are constantly assured by the enthusiasm of our presenters when they return from an event delivered by Pozitiv. Many of our delegates have gone on to present in a wide range of productions on the Channel from sports to news. A great company to know.
I gave a presentation in Trinidad on Wednesday to several major players in the [industry]. Your coaching was so useful. The chairman of the [company] thanked me for the presentation and, on the confidence he received from it, basically hired Biwater. The pointers you gave me were so valuable and gave me added confidence. I would have no hesitation in recommending your company in the future and look forward to you training several more of our staff.
Having felt the need to improve my presentational skills (particularly given my need to rehearse, use scripts and anxiety levels) I was referred to Glenn at Pozitiv as someone who may be able to help. I found him to be not only a pleasant guy to do this sort of work with (he has a very reassuring, calming style) but also very perceptive. He was able to extract your concerns, fears and weaknesses and target opportunities to improve your style, something which I felt we achieved even in the time I was there. There really were measurable results from this 4 hour session. I would highly recommend Pozitlv to any individual/company who is looking for assistance in this area.
An enormous thank you for making last Wednesday so enjoyable - not to mention fun! Your encouragement and help has made me determined to pursue presenting as a career.
Thank you so much. You were all fabulously professional, but more importantly (for me, at least) unfailingly helpful, encouraging and supportive… I'd still be at the starting blocks without all your "Pozitiv" help!
My career has taken me to companies and brands all over the world and I've never worked with anyone in PR who's more insightful or effective than Glenn and his team at Pozitiv. All that they've done for us has exceeded expectation, especially in terms of quality, getting the right outcome and return on investment. As an example, even though we had serious concerns and continually said "No", they worked hard to persuade us to participate in a prime-time, hour-long, observational TV documentary. I'm glad they did - the programme generated millions of pounds worth of brand recognition, attracted record numbers of viewers and was sold to over 100 countries. This is just one example of many - they are the only PR agency to use.
Just to let you know we are getting fantastic feedback from the hierarchy on the film. It's gone down so well it's now going to be distributed nationally to every Barratt division.
Initially I was sceptical about flying over from Africa for a course lasting a couple of hours but I have no regrets and feel "transformed". The coaching has definitely helped improve my public communication skills and it's satisfying looking at the difference between the first recording and the last one! My only regret is that I wish I'd done this course a lot earlier on in my career. After my first presentation the CEO came up to me to ask where I learnt to speak like that! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Glenn's ability to bring out the best in people, and provide them with the confidence to perform, ensures that his presentational coaching has become an essential part of our preparation for opportunities where we are asked to present or pitch
We had an awesome day. We sold out of the entire day's stock by 11.04am, then pulled in a further £288,000 sales vs. an £80,000 basic budget. Total for day was best ever at £750,000, budget £850! So, thanks a million!
I work for a leading Production Company where we screen test a lot of people just starting out in their quest to be Presenters. Recently we screen tested a young woman we felt would be right to be part of a new series for Five. However, the screen test wasn't as good as we had hoped, but we were still enthusiastic about our choice. So we sent her off to Pozitiv to see if Glenn and his gang could wave their magic wands and send us back a Presenter...
The experienced team at Pozitiv did exactly that! Within seconds of watching the professional showreel our trainee came away with, we instantly saw that they'd turned our raw talent into a future star - and one that we're thrilled will be working on our series!
Just wanted to let you know that following a Pozitiv course I'm now presenting! I'm currently hosting the children's show "Milkshake" (Channel 5). I just wanted to say thank you to you guys for giving me the confidence to pursue my dream job. It was also a big help practically, as my first experience was being put live in front of the nation for a morning with only an earpiece for company. Had I not been through the terror of your "magazine show" who knows what would have happened!? Thanks again.
I had always wanted to be on-screen in some way and when I saw an advert for a TV presenters course at Meridian’s Newbury office I jumped at the chance. It was the best thing I have ever done. It was as if a light bulb had been switched on in my head. I suddenly realised that this was what I wanted to do. I wanted to write and thank you and your lovely team for a really fascinating day on Sunday. I had been looking forward to it so much and was not disappointed in the slightest.
This again came through sheer hard work, grit and determination brought about by your words on that Sunday evening...thank you all once again for one of the most interesting and motivating days of my life...
It was a real eye-opener as to what could be accomplished in such a short period of time. I really liked your style of teaching and feel that I've already massively improved. The presentation I gave last week was very good (so I have been told) - it really worked.
We have asked Pozitiv to create our showreel for the past two years, and each time we have been delighted with the results. The quality of their work is consistently high, and their video editing is dynamic and imaginative - exactly what we need for drawing the crowds at trade shows. They are a pleasure to work with: professional, creative, and they deliver right on time.
The Select Committee hearing went really well. We were really impressed by both your research and coaching on Monday and would like to thank you, Anthony and the rest of the team for all the work you put into it. Our executives had worked with other companies in the past and found your session much more useful and better prepared - I will recommend you to the other Research Councils.
You may be aware that Sky has launched an internal campaign called Sky Talent, to search for new presenters. I decided to enter and I'm pleased to say I made it through all the rounds and into the top 12! It turns out that at least 3 people in the top 12 also took your course at some point over the last few years. And I just wanted to let you know that the one day course gave me extra confidence and I'm very grateful for your positive words and support. [N.B. Denise subsequently won!]
I have never walked away from anything feeling so motivated and excited! It's the best thing I've ever spent my money on! Thank you so much for your help, guidance and advice over the years, it's much appreciated. I wouldn't be where I am now without you!
I wanted to break into presenting and I'm delighted to say I have! I've just started weather presenting for both RTE1 and RTE2. Anyways, I just wanted to let you know that with your help and experience I've continued to pursue my career... and hopefully this will be the first of many opportunities on screen! Thanks for your tutoring and inspiration.
I'm so proud and happy that I started out with Pozitiv (COULDN'T OF DONE IT WITHOUT YOU). The course itself was fantastic. You don't have to wave the Pozitiv flag, I'm a believer!
Just a quick email to thank you for the recent training session with Keeley. The show we had a couple of days later generated the best sales we have ever had! She adopted the tips you discussed with her, held her ground with the presenter, and I felt, came across confidently on-air.
You are fantastic at what you do Glenn - you really have made a huge difference immediately! Thanks so much.
All the feedback received through the evaluation questionnaires after the recent series of Advanced Presentation Skills workshops was extremely positive, with 100% of participants rating them both 5 out of 5 for overall value and 5 out of 5 for meeting or exceeding expectations. Comments included, 'Terrific analysis and help in presentations...', 'Will help in clinical presentations tremendously...' and 'Very grateful for this experience - it was unique...'
Thank you so much for an absolutely brilliant day on Friday! I had so much fun and feel I really learned loads. All the others from the course are in email contact and we've all been saying how much we loved it.
I needed to improve my presentation skills but was sceptical as to what additional benefit a one-to-one session would deliver over a group course. Whilst a one-to-one can be slightly more expensive, I found Pozitiv and Glenn's approach refreshing, highly interactive, concise and could see a demonstrable improvement in a matter of hours. I left the course relishing the thought of my next presentation
Thank you to you and the crew for making Saturday such a fun and useful day! I had a fantastic time and met some great people. Glenn proved to be as helpful and encouraging as I ever could have hoped - I have acknowledged that if in doubt - smile!
The event was a big success. My performance must have been really great as I got congratulations from all sides. I did everything without any cards. I often smiled and I opened my arms. Like you told me. That was basically it. But the feedback was just overwhelming...! I even got flowers this morning from one of the most critical persons in the past.
Everyone was really impressed, saying that I didn't look like the complete novice I really am! My dad was quite surprised I think. Obviously, being in television, he can appreciate what goes into presenting. So he was quite taken aback that I pulled it off so well! I wanted to thank you for an absolutely FABULOUS day on Sunday. The facilities, expertise and hospitality were second to none.
I've been chosen to be a Special Correspondent for BBC Points of View... I applied through their BBC Talent scheme and am one of 5 people chosen from around 5,000 who applied. I've no doubt that my presenter training really helped me get through the screen test.
You understood what we were looking for and helped us to find the confidence to deliver presentations with impact. We all left buzzing and feeling more confident in our ability to 'stand and deliver'. With our videos to take us back to how good we felt on the day as we saw visible improvements and our comment cards to reinforce key messages the result has been very positive. Thank you.
It was a great success! We received many compliments about our multi-lingual speaking performances and everybody managed to give their best presentation ever! As a group, we were also able to motivate each other - we appreciated your efforts a lot.
Pozitiv deliver what they say they will. From concept to final output, they manage your expectations and engage continuously with what you want to achieve. Their enthusiasm and passion for what they do is clearly visible and the results speak for themselves.
Just a quick note to say thank you for the fantastic job you did yesterday. The coaching surpassed all my expectations and both our CEO and FD were very impressed. We all feel much more confident of our media abilities now.
Thanks Glenn, she is doing so well! Everyone loves her and wants more of her.
Whilst several potential consultancies appeared on the shortlist, the criteria of 'experience with sports broadcasting', 'use of an actual TV studio for the training/coaching', and 'do it tomorrow?' left Glenn top of the list. In 24 hours and through a series of phone calls a programme was constructed that was exactly what we were searching for. Just two and a half weeks later the development was completed and all objectives met. At all times Glenn and his team have been highly professional and have shown that engaging just the right consultancy is the way to gain optimum value for money. They continue to offer on-going support to our managers who were full of praise for the support, guidance and expertise provided by Glenn and his team.
The very difficult to please manager was delighted today and each member of the band commented over the evening on the press. It has made a a weekend I was dreading so much easier. Please extend my thanks to your team.
Just wanted to thank you, Glenn and the crew for the other day's training. Excellent. I really enjoyed the day and found it very useful. I had my screen test yesterday. And they've hired me to co-present the programme!
I thought the improvement of every single person in the space of just a few hours was remarkable, and you certainly improved my confidence no end. Thank you so much for a truly inspirational afternoon.
I’ve just landed my first job and I owe it all to the course which was fantastic and has, for me, opened up a whole new world that I never dreamed I’d be part of...thank you for introducing me to a talent that I didn’t know I had.
It gave me the confidence to take on the world! I've been delivering awesome presentations whilst being myself - in fact, communicating to an audience feels like talking to a best friend and I'm winning more business as a result. Just those two hours with you transformed me from a mediocre presenter into a leader. The before-Glenn and after-Glenn recordings of my presentation were astonishing.
It was a great pleasure to meet you all on Tuesday and thank you very much for a really interesting day. It wasn't just good fun, but unbelievable how much difference Glenn's coaching made to my OB and autocue pieces in particular. It was well worth doing. Thanks again for your encouragement and advice.
I don’t know if you’ll remember me, but I was on the one-day television presenters training course on June 15th. I’m just writing to let you know that I’ve got my first job...so basically, I’m just saying thank you - it was my showreel that got me the job!
Both Laurence and Sir Ian improved with the sessions, and so the producers think they were very worthwhile. Thanks for all your help.
Just a note to say thank you for a great day. I've learnt a lot, and like you said, shall not give up.
I have been meaning to get in touch to let you know that since February this year I've been working full-time for a Sky Channel based in Manchester, Channel M... I was offered a promotion and now I'm one of the main presenters on the daily breakfast show which involves 3 hours of daily live studio work - it's fab!! I wanted to say a big thanks to you guys for helping me secure this first (hopefully of many..?) TV jobs as the support and encouragement I recieved was certainly one of the factors that made me push myself a little further.
A quick email to say thanks for Friday it was a fantastic day and I really enjoyed it. I got booked for my first presenting job today thanks to the stuff we filmed on Friday!
I would just like to say what a fantastic day I had and it was a real confidence booster. I have to say, this course, even though it was just a day, has given me soooo much - thanks!
Within a month of attending your course I was working on a voluntary basis for a local cable company as a runner. Within two months they were using me as a freelance reporter. Within three months I was offered work as a travel broadcaster for AA Roadwatch. This coupled with my TV work enabled me to cast off the shackles of 9-5 office work! Only six weeks later I was offered a full time contract to be one of three presenter/reporters co-hosting a show... So, only eight months after the course I have a full-time flourishing TV career. Thank you!
The feedback from the producer was "brilliant" ... and they said I came across as
natural and authoritative. I must admit I was so relaxed after the complexities of the Pozitiv course and felt very much in the drivers seat. And yes... I got the job!
Just wanted you to know... I got the Channel 4 gig to present their World Superbike coverage all year. To say I'm made up is an understatement! I couldn't have done it without you, Pozitiv and the advice you've given me, so ta very, very much for that.
I don't know where to start! You've had more faith in me than I have from the start, and then you go and email me details of two companies wanting a presenter and I get both of 'em! It's like WOAH!!!!! I can't believe I got a job out of the first screen test I went to and... well, it's all just a bit overwhelming really! How did you know I could do this when I never REALLY did until now?!
I must confess that when I got home after our session last week my family were less than supportive about adopting your approach, believing I would still require notes for my speech. On the day I obviously felt nervous, but once I got on stage everything went well. The room was totally silent (the guests were probably stunned), they seemed interested, I didn't require any notes and I received nothing but praise - even the Channel 5 presenter said I was a natural. Thanks again for your time last week, you really did save me from doing a dreadful written speech.
Thanks for an absolutely brilliant day...you’ve helped me a hell of a lot, and I had a load of fun into the bargain.
As you are aware, we have now been using your services for over 2 years and have subsequently achieved incredible results from all our presenters! Prior the the 1-on-1 training sessions, only 1 of our 4 presenters had previously had television experience. However, you've given them all the confidence and required skills to succeed... and they have! Over the past year our on air sales have increased by over 40%. I'd like to say a big thank you to Glenn for his professionalism, motivation, and his ability to not only make you feel so at ease, but also for the demonstrable improvement he achieves in just a 2 hour session.
We’ve worked closely with the team at Pozitiv over several years and the quality of their advice, backed up by a personal and professional service, has both protected and enhanced our business reputation in equal measure. Always willing to go the extra mile, we see them as very much a part of our team, helping us continue to deliver a total service, for the benefit of our valued customers.
Just writing to let you know that at long last I’ve got a job on Children’s TV - thanks very much for your invaluable guidance and encouragement which was an inspiration...it really was a unique experience.
Your advice and opinion means a lot to me. I really appreciate it - thanks so much!
Thank you for your work with our CEO. His speech yesterday at both the press and public launches, received some wonderful feedback. In my opinion he appeared extremely confident and relaxed and others said the same.
The feedback I got was a resounding 'brilliant" and 'great, very useful'. From what I have heard, they'd all agree with you that there was considerable improvement over the course of the day!
I returned home after a most exhilarating and exhausting day, with the best advice and training in presenting you can get - along with a showreel which could get me through the most impenetrable doors! And guess what...? It worked! I'm now a continuity announcer/newsreader for Ulster Television! So a great big Thank you to you all!
It was an inspiring and very powerful session. The feedback has been excellent. We all commented on your professional yet honest approach that pushed the delegates that bit further from what they are used to or thought they could achieve. Thank you.
The roadshow went well, the presenters were clearly improved in their technique and delivery and they looked more like they belonged on the stage. Feedback from the event (we survey all staff) confirms that others agree with me. In particular, the CEO appreciated the opportunity and help and was very happy with his progress and GiIlian gets better and better. Thanks again for all your help.
I had such an amazing, great, wonderful, fabulous day yesterday - thank you, thank you!!! I can't explain how good I felt when I left, both of you and the whole team were amazing! So kind, friendly, down to earth and extremely professional and just bloody good and great! The way you coached us all with honest feedback in a fun way was so refreshing.
I just got back from 5 crazy days in New Zealand. "Sportscafe" flew me down there for that job interview and I got it! I got a goddamn job!! I think it's totally hilarious! And I just want to say thank you so much!
Glenn and the team provided an excellent days training, non-gimmicky, straightforward and should stand the test of time. The team were very well prepared and were challenging throughout. Excellent.
Delighted with the results - the training you provided really did make a very clear and major difference.
We were recommended and introduced to Pozitiv and they quickly formed a rapport with our management teams and helped them understand and appreciate the value of PR. Most of our senior management had not experienced such professionals before and it gave them confidence in promoting the brand and the value they could derive from increased awareness. Pozitiv exude knowledge and expertise in working with the media...
One of the best days of my life. From start to finish the course was everything I had hoped it would be, and more! You were all so professional and have created the perfect environment to really give an insight into what it's like to be a presenter.
I took your advice and concentrated on looking for opportunities where I could use my legal background for voiceover and presenting work. And, i'm pleased to say that I landed a dream job for me with Legal Network Television which produces programmes on new areas of law and legal practice. It's really great and I get to come up with the outline, choose the interviewees, write the scripts and do the voiceovers and all pieces to camera so its really fulfilling. Hurray!
The course was one of the best training courses I've attended and I was very impressed with Glenn Kinsey's skills as a trainer.
I did your day course in 2001 and loved it! After a lot of searching, I finally got a job on BidTV and have been working there as a full-time presenter since 2004. I have now just handed in my notice as I have got a job on ITVplay which I start this summer. I just wanted to say thanks for the great day I had doing the course as it was the start of all this for me.
I really enjoyed the course and had loads of fun - too much fun! I've watched the footage a couple of times and I'm amazed at the high level of quality. Thanks so much.
What can I say? The coaching was all I knew it would be and more! As to the improvement in [our client] since his intensive training - it has worked wonders and it's a delight to see [our client] as himself, happy and confident in front of an audience.
Thank you so much for delivering the training to the team. They have all said how useful they found it and that it made them feel about ten feet tall. There is a definite improvement in the bulletins and they are all working hard to put into practice what you taught them.
It's perfect! It's classy, professional, and best of all it's definitely me. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I'm so glad I came across Pozitiv - thanks again.
Got on really well on Thursday at my meeting with RDF. They really liked my showreel - thanks to your marvellous selves! - and think I'd fit in well with their property programmes and daytime stuff. Thanks so much - as always - for your help and advice.
The training really did come in handy - I gave a best man's speech in front of 300 people last month, a very grand wedding. And I delivered a 12 minute speech, no notes, not a single hiccup. The compliments flooded in afterwards. Someone even said it was the best wedding speech they'd ever heard!
Many thanks for your help with (the host's) training - you gave us the outcome we wanted so again, many thanks.
Thank you so much for all you did on Friday. The course was great and I think everyone benefitted enormously. You and Glenn are a breath of fresh air in such a cynical business. I had a lot of fun!
Just a very quick note to thank you sincerely for the training course. It was an unqualified triumph! The setting, the content, pace, hospitality and all round professionalism was first class and, not least, the day was terrific fun. The training swung into action almost immediately with my successful Saturday tea-time ITV1 interviews waxing lyrical about X Factor and Strictly Come Dancing...
Well, success. Just got back from giving a speech at a presentation in The Hague. Actually had delegates describing my presentation as "awesome"… and, even better, given the focus of my last session with Glenn, I had compliments from both delegates and organisers to the effect that they liked the way I delivered my talk because I was the only speaker at the event who used PowerPoint as a background visual aid and then spoke around the subject - whereas all the others merely took delegates through the contents of their slides rather than adding anything extra.
I would like to thank you for a really enjoyable and useful session. I must admit that I go into most training sessions slightly wary of their usefulness but I walked away from yours feeling like I'd developed self-awareness and new skills that I'm already putting to use!
We would like to express our sincere thanks for the important role you played in the success of three recent tenders. The presentation skills of our team pitching for the new business were critical to the final appointment. Our partners were overjoyed by your knock-out score with a three-out-of-three success rate. We could not have hoped for a better result. In particular, we felt that your special ability to help our lawyers feel at ease with what is often quite an uncomfortable situation was a significant factor in their confidence building. We all found it a pleasure to work with someone who used humour, expertise and insight to de-mystify a scary situation, bring out our best and, above all, help us win the work .
Glenn and his team responded at short notice to provide a morning of media training before a challenging TV interview. The training was direct, efficient and effective and allowed me to be more confident to give responses in my own style without risking being caught out by trick questions. A very challenging but supportive experience.
I have been on literally hundreds of training courses in my life. Yours is the best I have ever attended. It’s fabulous and it lives up to your company name of Pozitiv. And more!
I really enjoyed the session and felt I learnt a lot - and most importantly we had a SELL OUT on QVC! Thank you again.
Thanks for a fantastic day. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute and feel I have really benefited from your training.
The launch went down really well and my first filming session this series with Style Challenge went brilliantly. I felt really confident and interacted with the audience a lot more...I think they are the best shows I've ever recorded with them. Thanks mate!
Glenn is a wonderful frontman for the course and his commitment made the day an experience I will not forget.
Not only did your approach give me a great insight into the makings of a natural speaker, as a result of the session I feel ten times more inspired to go out there and enjoy the experience. The tour went brilliantly and the training you gave me proved absolutely invaluable in my new MC role.
What can I say? I think that the results you achieved with [the board of a multi-billion pound organisation] were marvellous! Having worked with these gentlemen for a little while now, it was very evident that they were now very much more comfortable with themselves on the stage and in front of an audience. They were animated and enthusiastic, and your diredions to them regarding their duties as representatives of their company were spot on. I have always been a bit cynical about what we might get out of the coaching, but I have been proved wrong.
Just a quick email to let you know that I've succeeded. The half hour special on Samantha Mumba was sold to RTE. They have given it an excellent schedule. Thanks for everything… please pass on my thanks to everyone on the team.
We have always been very pleased with the level of service provided and the results achieved. Personally, I have also valued your professionalism, your unfailing commitment, your remarkable understanding of Acambis and the consistently high standard of advice you have provided.
Just to say a HUGE thank you for doing my showreel. I'm very happy with it and can't wait to get as many people as I can to see it! You've done a really super job!
The nerves came on from nowhere about 4am and I nearly ducked but in the end I did it and using what I learnt from you both I scanned the audience, smiled and felt really comfortable. The response from the audience was 3/10 questions directed specifically to me which says they wanted to talk to me. Also afterwards I had lots of people saying thank you and how well I had done and that I gave a fresh approach with some commenting that I was the best on the panel which was a great compliment. Thanks so much.
Thank you so much for yesterday's fab course! I had a great time and after all these years realised that I actually do like being front of the camera! You and the team were great - it felt so professional.
Their work is truly outstanding. Whether facing a "crisis" or an opportunity, their advice has always been spot on, exceeded my expectations and, most importantly, the return on investment has been exceptional.
Over the past few years, Pozitiv have organised and implemented creative national campaigns on our behalf. We're absolutely delighted with their approach and the results they consistently achieve in ensuring our medical diagnostics services are seen and heard by millions of potential customers across television, radio and the print media.
I just have to say a huge thank you for your patience, help and determination. I have spent the whole day raving about it... it's been a long time since I've enjoyed a course and the people on it so much.
It looks fantastic! It's even better than last year's and that's saying something! Thanks to everyone concerned for doing such a top job, and for making sure that it arrived bang on time! I'm very happy!
I don't want you to think I'm being insincere here and buttering you up, but it seems like good form to let you know how much I enjoyed the course, appreciated your various kindnesses, and I personally gained a great deal from both my first and second go!
I can't tell you how much fun I had, and how much I learnt from the team. I was absolutely buzzing after the course! I enjoyed myself so much and I'm delighted with the results... When I get my first job I'll be straight on the phone to you guys - thank you again.
We are all extremely pleased with the results. Amanda has come on so much from just the one session with you, which was very evident on QVC on Wednesday evening. The show went very well. Amanda was great and came across so much better on camera. In terms of sales, we also had a great result, so all round we are very, very pleased
I felt I learnt a tremendous amount... I am extremely grateful to both you and your team for your professionalism and enthusiasm throughout that incredible day... your advice, direction and warmth were particularly inspiring... you clearly have a phenomenal understanding...
Thank you for all your efforts with my showreel! I'm genuinely thrilled with the outcome - you made me look great! I'm sure I couldn't have had a better edit anywhere else and I'm so grateful for your help.
I've just gone into my email to write to you and say I am so pleased with the videos, I'm so glad I got you to do it for me. Thanks again for doing them so well
I thought it would be easier to be relaxed and oneself in front of the camera, and I am surprised. I was not as impressed with the results I produced as I thought I'd be, but that in itself is a massive learning curve and a real lesson, and I'm very grateful to you and to Glenn. You both taught me a great, great deal today. Thank you very, very much.
My showreel has turned out great, and the feedback has been very positive. Once again, many thanks for the day. Your team were most helpful and I enjoyed the whole experience.
Thanks so much for a brilliant day’s training - it was inspirational! You managed to be patient, encouraging and yet inspire the best from people
I found the session really useful with a number of practical changes I can make to further presentations.
So this is to give you a HUG OF HUGENESS thanking you for your generous comments, brill advice, care with the fisog, and for arranging a day that I wanted with experiences that really counted , as I strive to get the "boy" Motley noticed. I have been a "voice" for too long. Thanks for a brilliant, BRILLIANT day. I can't tell you how happy I am to have finally laid my concerns over Autocue to rest and refreshed my talk-back appreciation and technique. I know you do this course all the time, but to me and my new friends it seemed fresh and tailor made for us, diverse though we were. EXCELLENT!
A big thanks to everyone... it was a very valuable 2 hours and money well spent!
Thank you for a wonderful day on Friday. I viewed the footage and the difference between the before and after is tremendous. Your course is very good value and this was felt by the others who shared the day with me. Very many thanks again.
Thanks to your finely-tuned training techniques in the recent workshop, I've seen a marked improvement in the outcomes of face to face meetings with new and existing clients as well as stakeholders within our group. It was incredibly useful for me.
Thank you for a wonderful experience and opportunity - I owe you all a big drink. I'm very pleased with the DVD and I can't thank you enough.
Really appreciate you doing that for me, it's wicked! I'm well pleased Jo, I think it's my best reel to date you know.
When I first read the comments of previous clients about the course being “a life changing” experience etc. I thought, yeah...right. HOWEVER, now that I have experienced the course myself I know what they are talking about...the day will rank as one of the best, most enjoyable and memorable days of my life. Moreover, what is clear to me is that but for the involvement of each and every one of you the experience would not have been the same. What little I know of television tells me that I doubt that I will ever have the privilege to work again with a group of such genuinely lovely and professionally competent people. THANK YOU.
Thanks for a very enjoyable day. It was worth the money even just for the confidence boost! I hope I see you soon, preferably on the box!
Thank you! The showreel is great. My Mum put it well - she said it was very cleverly done - it's got my personality, it's professional, yet fresh, AND it's got my annoying things that make me, me! Basically it's got everything - thank you.
I'm still on a high, which I hope will last for some time! Can you thank everyone for a great day, and particularly Glenn. He has such a great style, making you feel comfortable learning something completely new while you're completely terrified!
Thank you for all you did for me on Sunday. You and the rest of the staff were just unbelievable in terms of enthusiasm, support, encouragement and motivation. What you did for us all was truly fabulous...you have the ability to gain people’s trust in minutes. Instead of exploiting that trust, you remain totally approachable but with the correct amount of authority to get people to give the best of themselves. It’s a unique skill that thank goodness can’t be bottled and one that will surely give you continued success.
Thanks again for all your help on the day - it was fab! Things are going well. I've been doing some presenting on Factory Outlet TV to get some experience, and I'm working on other projects as well.
I got my showreels this morning and they're awesome! One has gone straight in the post! Thanks again for doing such a cool job.
Ever since I arrived home I've been watching it over and over again! Undoubtedly, the best part of the day for me was the "live" magazine programme, it's exactly the type of thing I'd like to do - and I've got the confidence to go out and do it now! Thanks to Glenn for all his advice, and tips on presenting - it makes all the difference when someone is so positive about everything.
May I begin by saying how much I enjoyed myself on the presenters course last Sunday... it was well worth the money, good fun and all in all an excellent experience.
I just wanted to put into words my gratitude to you and everyone at Pozitiv Productions - the course was a great inspiration to me and it gave me the confidence to really go after my goals. I have now landed my dream job at a television company as a presenter and it was the footage from your course that originally introduced me to the person who is now employing me.
So happy with the finished product. Jo's professionalism and creativity as well as her clear and well thought out approach meant that the end result was not only exactly what I was looking for, but a better version of what I had in mind! Many thanks.
He said that my showreel was fab... and offered me a presenting job!! Not only that but 2 shows! Thank you so much for putting me up for this. I appreciate everything you did for me on the day course and the support you've given me since. It means so much.
I wanted to tell you that I have an audition tomorrow at Sky Sports, all based on my showreel! So thanks for the editing.
...your experience and knowledge was abundantly evident but, more importantly, your ability to share this with each person on the course in a way that connected with them was hugely impressive...the fact that, after all that and in the early hours of Monday morning, you made the time to give me some personal advice and encouragement was something for which I am profoundly grateful. I am not by nature hugely self-confident and it meant a lot to me. I found your coaching and comments to be accurate and very perceptive - all the more so when I watched the tape at home and saw how your suggestions had been spot on.
OH MY GOSH! This showreel is quality. I put it in the player and couldn't believe that it was me on the TV! The choice of shots were spot on and I really think they're the best bits of footage from the day.
I have already told everyone who will listen how you transformedme from a bored axe murderer back to a confident version of myself. I was sceptical that you could possibly do anything to increase my confidence in presenting in just two hours and, as you'd said you didn't use the methods used by most other presentation skills trainers, I was very curious as to what it was that you actually did. By the end of the two hours I knew and it was an extraordinary experience to see on video the difference between the first presentation I made and the last one. Your comments were incisive, accurate and inspiring. I am now feeling relaxed about giving presentations with no notes, have changed the way I produce my PowerPoints and I feel comfortable about how I stand and what I do with my hands. Your coaching has made me feel confident with the way I am and taken away the terror. Remarkable.
I absolutely loved the course, and wish I could do it all over again! I've realised that presenting is most definitely what I want to do, and you made me realise that I can do this if I really want it. It's not just my Mum telling me that I could! I really didn't get the chance to thank you enough.
The course was AWESOME! Please pass my thanks to Glenn for his tips, expertise and all of his help. It was well worth the trip, time and money. I just got so much out of it.
The course was brilliant, yet so simple! I usually expect to come away with a nice set of course notes and a pen, yet I came away with so much more than on any course I've ever been on - the feeling that I had actually improved one of my skills - far more valuable than a set of notes that would have gathered dust! I am doing my first presentation next week - with no PowerPoint slides! And I even starred in an educational video that we have recently filmed, something I would never have done before your course! Thank you!
I'm really happy with the showreel! To be honest I sat on the floor in front of the telly with a cuppa thinking, "Oh crap, I'm not gonna like it". I just thought there wouldn't be enough good stuff... But I was chuffed! I felt it was very positive, captured the cheekiness and energy wonderfully. Thank you so much! I can't believe you did it!
Thanks to you, Glenn and all your team for a life-enriching experience… it was a unique experience and I enjoyed every minute of it.
Thank you for all your help, support and care. You don't know how much I needed - not just your expertise and knowledge - but more importantly your understanding and belief in little ol' me! Words can't express.
A big thank you for the help and support you gave us all over a very long day. I won't go on about it, but your attitude was really refreshing and I think that people really appreciated the professionalism with a human touch that you displayed. A really excellent set of people!
Really appreciated your help which has revolutionised my style of speaking. I have been singing your praises since.
I got an interview, based on my ambition and commitment to my dream - particularly that I attended your course! After only 2 weeks I've been asked to work. So the advice you give about being yourself, being persistant and keeping your eyes open really works, and I just wanted to say thanks!
Thank you to you and Glenn and the team for the hard work you all put in on Friday. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and I truly think it was far better than I could have imagined, and well worth the money.
Jo. Glenn - and everyone else at Poziitv, an even bigger THANK YOU! I had a fantastic day on Sunday, learnt loads and REALLY appreciate the opportunity to do the course! I can't wait to find work and get the ball rolling! Glenn, we meant it when we said "you the man!". You're a FAB coach - with incredible patience! Thanks again to all of you crazy crowd!
Thank you very much for your help yesterday - I felt the session was really useful and I'm looking forward to putting what we worked on into action.
I managed to be selected as the runner-up in BBC Talent from 4,000 people who auditioned. I couldn't believe it and, although I didn't win, it gave me the confidence to carry on. Thanks again for all your help and encouragement!
Seamus went on to BBC Radio Essex this morning and by all accounts blew the opposition away - very positive stuff indeed. A job well done the other night guys - thanks a lot.
I will make sure the Directors are aware of what a success the day was, which is thanks, in no small part, to your incredible professionalism and energy.
I did a presenting course with you about 6 years ago, and I thought you might like to know that I now work full time as a presenter hosting live BBC events, BBC training, Sky Travel, NTL, and Express Shopping Channel :-)
We want to thank you for a very unique experience! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves...we learnt tons and are so thrilled that we have already recommended your course to several of our friends. Thank you again for a most wonderfully invaluable course.
Thanks for an absolutely brilliant day...you’ve helped me a hell of a lot, and I had a load of fun into the bargain.
After working with Glenn a couple of days before the event, I was completely confident
when it came to facing the 25,000+ people in the audience at 'The Global Peace and
Unity Event'. Thanks again for your help - it was priceless.
Brilliant day... I learnt oceans of stuff and see clearly what has to be done... thanks so much again.
I received the videos today and I am so bloody happy with it - you've done such a good job! Thanks so much.
Just back from my talk and wanted to say a big thank you for your coaching. It really did help and doing the talk without all those notes made such a difference.
...your experience and knowledge was abundantly evident but, more importantly, your ability to share this with each person on the course in a way that connected with them was hugely impressive... the fact that, after all that and in the early hours of Monday morning, you made the time to give me some personal advice and encouragement was something for which I am profoundly grateful. I am not by nature hugely self confident and it meant a lot to me... I found your coaching and comments to be accurate and very perceptive.
Thank you for everything... you have given me more confidence in a day than anyone has in my lifetime!
Just a quickie to say how totally fabulous the course was on Friday. You and Glenn certainly have a great gift with people, and the structure of the day was perfect - you made us all feel like you really gave a shit! Before I called you I was due to go on another course, but somehow I didn't feel comfortable with the men who were running it. It felt overpriced and all they were interested in was pound notes. 5 minutes on the phone to you and it was all over for them!! And I definitely know that my gut feeling was the right one! A huge thank you for making the day very special and so much fun! Your advice was informative and realistic and I feel I've taken away enough to take great steps forward now.
I had to write to just say thank you in a big way for Saturday... I was amazed at how good you made me come across...I’ve never met such lovely and helpful people... it was one of the best days of my life! Glenn was amazing... he got something out of me that I really didn’t think was there.
Thank you all for such a brilliant day's training. Now with these new skills I feel much more able to take on the challenge of the media machine…
The course was superb; I thorougly enjoyed it and learnt a lot. Glenn was a great help and I'm thankful that he brought the real me out of the closet! I've watched the tape back and I think it's great. I'll be pushing myself forward now and banging on lots of doors for that break.
I've gotten 18 reels out so far, and had some feedback. The only negative feedback I got was from one company, saying that I wasn't suitable for their young, energetic viewers - so no problem! The feedback on the quality of the reel has been great - and I quote - "it's definitely up to scratch".
Just a quickie to say thanks for Sunday. Hard work, yes. Good fun, yes. Nice people, you bet. I thought every element of the day was expertly handled and even the nosh was pretty good! Thanks once again to you and all the team...and of course, regards to Glenn, who I thought was superb - has he done these days before?!
I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know how genuinely worthwhile I found the day with you and your team to be. I feel that I got exactly what I was looking for...no crazy gimmicks or overly big ideas but good, solid, professional and "real" advice. What definitely strikes an impression is your sincerity in providing quality training and how you are genuine in giving your very best. I would recommend this day of training to anyone who is serious about exploring their suitability for presenting. I simply could not imagine getting off to a better start!
To bring you up to speed... Thanks to Pozitiv, I've just secured some work presenting a new show on Legal TV from the end of June, and recently made the final 12 out of 1000 applicants on Life TV's "Search For A Presenter" reality show!
A quick note to say a very sincere thank you for the extra hours you put in overnight on the video project. As usual, the results of your work are absolutely first class.
I don't think I would have had the confidence to go for it had I not been bitten by the bug seriously on your course so thanks again for helping me and giving me confidence in myself. I'll never forget the day at Pozitiv - it was the best.
Just a note to let you know I've put the training you gave me last year to good use. We're producing that streaming web presentation now, and - much more fun from my point of view - I've captained a quiz team on a BBC show due for broadcast this spring. Believe me I loved every minute of it!
Your course was a revelation, a learning process and a pleasure. I am deeply impressed by the range, depth and vision which you offer your students. I know that I, for one, benefited immensely for having taken it. I have already recommended it to a couple of people, and will go on doing so with great confidence and belief. The course was wonderful, Glenn, and I shall always be grateful.
I just have to say a HUGE THANK YOU for your patience, help and determination all day. I've spent the whole day raving about it!
Just a quick thank you for a great course, I really appreciated all the energy you and Glenn and the whole team put into the day. It really does seem enormously good value.
Just to thank you for the simply outstanding course on the 24th... I must admit to having some reservations when I first saw the cost, but found it to be worth every penny and far more. I was made to feel so welcome and relaxed, and the whole set up was both constructive and professional. I feel far more confident that I can make a good run of it in this sphere, however hard it will almost certainly prove to be to get that initial shot.
Well, what can I say about your course, absolutely fantastic... the one thing that I will take away from the course is what you kept saying, “Be yourself and enjoy it” and that is certainly what I did when I went on my first screen test and got the job.
Wow! Is all I can say about probably one of the best days of my life! Everyone in the team was so committed into making sure we all got the absolute most from our day and I haven't seen that degree of dedication for a very long time.
Thought you might like to add me to your success stories... I'm working in regional TV in New Zealand, a channel called CHTV in Christchurch where I'm doing news. Thanks for giving me an intro to the TV skills I'm using now.
I had to write immediately... I found the training a totally exhilarating experience. It has helped me regain a lot of lost confidence and self-esteem, in fact I feel I have left the course with a fresh and focussed new approach to myself and my career - so thank you.
Just wanted to say a HUGE "thank you" for the best experience yesterday. I had a truly great time and benefited in so many ways. Primarily the day was extremely informative, productive and honest, but most of all great fun! Thank you once again for your warm and welcoming nature and the teams persistence in getting the best out of us all in such a limited time!
Please pass my thanks on to Glenn, his style of coaching is like nothing I have ever experienced. He never pushed me into anything I didn't want to do and he was thoroughly supportive in everything that the day threw at me. I feel quite proud that I had the chance to do the course with someone as brilliant as Glenn taking me through it. Some of the others that I have spoken to this week have said the same thing, the course that you run is, no doubt, the best of its kind in the country and worth every penny.
I wanted to drop you a line to say thanks once again to you and your team for yesterday. Really great course and an enjoyable day. It has provided me with lots of food for thought.
Thanks for your kind message about me getting a job reading traffic and travel. It's all due to the super showreel you put together for me! So thanks!
I loved that day so much! It was brilliant and I'd always tell anyone that. I'm so glad I picked that course over the others, and you were all so lovely... I was really pleased with my footage as well. I hardly cringed at all and I expected to all the time!!
It was hard work, extremely nerve-wracking but good fun. It taught me the basics I needed to know and was a great confidence boost. Once again, for a great day, it was money well spent!
Just a quick note to say big thanks to everyone for a fantastic day. It was really enjoyable and I feel that I have moved "up a notch" as a result - all thanks to you guys.
She, as all others you have trained for us, has got so much more confidence now. She had a sales presentation to do straight after her training and said it went so well, because she was still 'buzzing' from the training. Please be advised that Kate's audition for QVC was also brilliant. All QVC personnel had extremely positive comments to make, saying she was very natural, presentable, smiley, informative etc so she definitely got the thumbs up from them.
It worked! We did another big presentation today… I didn't dry up or forget my lines. Isn't it amazing what a little bit of "Pozitiv" help can do?! It's all credit to you and you need to know, that the presentations have been much better... certainly, from my point of view, I shall be extolling your virtues to anyone who wants to listen. Many really big thanks, you've truly worked wonders - again, no doubt!
