What you can expect

After coaching with me

A massive boost in confidence and competence

Personalities are preserved

No-one becomes a "presenter". Instead, your uniqueness is emphasised and delivery feels effortless and natural

No cheese, no corn

Authentic presentations and interviews, delivered as they were meant to be received, staying true to your inherent personality. Quirks and eccentricities are embraced rather than corrected

I won't need to come back

I work quickly and permanently. My coaching is designed so you experience it once and reap the benefits far into the future applying it to any presentation regardless of script or content

Why come to me?

USP's

Experience and success rate

I've personally coached over 3,000 TV presenters, journalists and hosts. Over 700 previous media virgins alone have found roles on-screen after my training, many of whom are now household names

Speedy results

A fresh, unconventional and unique approach that gets results – fast. I tend to work with very busy people so have to deliver in a matter of hours not days. Check out my case studies to see what I can achieve

Creating individuals, not "presenters"

I steer clear of all but the most fundamental “do’s and don’ts” suggesting there’s only one way to deliver a successful presentation. You know the kind of thing - "rehearse, rehearse, rehearse", "top 5 tips", "breathing exercises to free the inner you" etc. Imperfections can make things better, not worse, particularly when uniqueness is a driving factor for success

No drama school theatrics

I won't show you how to "perform" or "put on an act". Instead, we'll leverage the reason you were hired in the first place - your unique personality and skills. I'll show you how to successfully transfer your off-air persona to the on-air screen, without the typical "wooden" image that often accompanies a nervous presenter who feels like they're on public show

Spotting one of my clients is difficult

Instead of the distinctive air of someone who's been "trained", chances are an individual coached by me will appear to be a "natural". At ease with themselves, inspiring the trust needed to influence, engage and keep viewers watching

That's why producers like me

Producers work with me because they know I won't shoe-horn their talent into a standard format or style. They want the quirkiness, eccentricities and spontaneity of their star to blossom, not mute. And delivering that is what I'm good at

Proven track record

The broadcasters favourite

I've trained presenters and hosts for most of the key broadcasters including the BBC, ITV companies, C4, C5 and a multitude of international channels. I've provided my services on behalf of over 50 independent production companies for TV and online projects as well as some of the industry's top celebrity, sports and presenter management agencies

Over 27 years experience

With clients in over 20 different countries and a business built almost exclusively on personal recommendation, I've been coaching since 1991. My work's been featured in numerous TV and documentary features as well as over 40 articles in the UK press alone. My corporate client list includes some of the world's biggest companies

Benefit from the company I keep

I learn by doing. My colourful client list, mainly comprised of leaders in their respective fields, be it corporate, media or public life – provides me with continued exposure to a broad range of sectors, attitudes and beliefs. This is reflected in the content of my work, ensuring you're provided with skills and techniques backed up by tried, tested and proven experience

About me

Glenn Kinsey

It all started by accident.

I was a 21 year old working in British broadcasting and successfully coached some novice TV presenters.  A national newspaper wrote about it.  And my phone didn't stop ringing.

Since then, over the past 27 years, I've helped some of the biggest names in business, politics, celebrity and media be more confident, more compelling and more effective in their presentations.

I learn more from each and every client and pass that on to the next one. You'll have the benefit of that collective knowledge whether you're trying to present, persuade, sell, motivate or connect.
