Sporting champion to presenter

Diane Modahl   |   Case Study


  • Diane was a former athletics star, competing in four Olympic Games, an 800m champion in the Commonwealth Games and a multitude of other titles
  • Her profile meant that she was getting lots of TV presenting and reporting opportunities - however, she seemed to always be reaching the shortlist but not getting the job
  • We were recommended to her and she turned to us for help


  • A day's intensive, studio and location-based coaching whilst also using this as an opportunity to simultaneously produce her new showreel


  • Dramatic improvements were evident during her training and the client was delighted with the results
  • With the help of her showreel and new-found screen-test confidence, she finally broke the barrier and landed her first TV job within weeks
  • Her success continued with numerous on-screen roles including sports reporter for BBC North West Tonight, international sports reporter for BBC Breakfast News, correspondent at the Commonwealth Games for the BBC, presenting Girls Talk on Sky, a contestant on ITV's, I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here and many others
