Business is all about relationships, and relationships are all about people.
I was fortunate to meet Nicole Finney, one of the founders of Oakfields College, based in Pretoria, South Africa. Oakfields offers students a range of diplomas and certificates including TV and Radio Presenting and Voice-over Artistry.
It is with great pleasure that I introduce Oakfields College to you and share more about their academic institution.
Oakfields College programmes provide students with the skills needed to become professional presenters and focus on building confidence, understanding the dynamics of dialogue and acquiring techniques for conducting themselves professionally in a business situation.
All courses are run by practicing voice-over artists with extensive hands-on experience both in South Africa and abroad.
The extremely practical and hands-on programme content has been designed by Mariette Engelin of CVT Academy. Mariette is renowned in the South African broadcasting industry.
â€œPractice, practice and more practiceâ€ is Marietteâ€™s motto. The students are given a thorough grounding in the essentials of radio & TV presenting, voice-overs for advertisements or videos as well as public speaking & speechcraft.â€
Students are introduced to the techniques that experienced and professional voice-over artists continuously use, rely on and are well trained in. Among the various techniques covered in this course are presenting live in front of a camera and recording in studios for advertisements and or audio visuals.
As you have read, Oakfields College is a great place for students to pursue both professional and personal excellence.
