The TV Academy has been helping people to become effective on-screen communicators for over two decades. Many of the people we have trained have become successful presenters on BBC, ITV and Sky, are now major influencers on YouTube and social media or have become professional keynote speakers on some of the world’s leading platforms including TED.

We understand that appearing on camera, whether at home or in a studio, can be quiet a daunting experience, but you already have the resources you need to be a great speaker, you just need us to show you how to use them.

Our professional team of presenters, directors, producers and agents have the depth and breadth of experience you need to become a high impact communicator in the world of television, social media and business.

The TV Training Academy was founded by working performer Brian Naylor. 

After working as a presenter on both television and stage for many years he recognised that the guidance and direction he received was often inconsistent, unclear and even suppressive. This drove him to develop a learning environment and style that allows anyone to find their true, authentic voice while maintaining an assertive, professional and engaging delivery.

Regarded as one of the UK’s top presentation skills coaches Brian has now been working with Presenters and Speakers for over twenty years offering training and mentorship for those looking to be build confident, effective and credible on camera delivery. 

Using his first-hand experience Brian has designed online training courses, mentorship programs and is the author of ‘TV & Video Presenting made easy’ all of which maximise people’s potential as a presenter.

He now has a well-respected and highly decorated team around him who can pass on their first-hand knowledge so current and potential presenters can stand out from the competition, boost their visibility and get the career they desire.
