(mtv base VJ, 5fm DJ , Presenter, Public Speaker and Rockstar, South Africa)
I was fortunate enough to have Donald Woodburn train me in 2007, after winning the MTV Base VJ Search the previous year. At the time my presenting skills weren’t exactly at the high standard required, and I needed Donald’s training, as his experience and reputation clearly spoke for itself!
Over 3 months, he worked with me, focussing on my vocal training needs, body language and interviewing skills. He found my strengths and weaknesses, and was able to break it down right to the science of it.
Donald’s mentoring goes beyond lecturing and training; he has an unconventional and fascinating approach, which is unique, valuable and indispensable in this industry. He has been very supportive throughout my career, and continues to keep me on point with my on-screen/off-screen work. He is not only my mentor; he is now a very good friend!
