How to carve a career in Factual TV presenting

An honest and practical overview of how to break into on-screen roles, featuring leading factual presenters, commissioners and producers

Presenters Michelle Ackerley and Ortis Deley will be joined by Channel 4 Commissioning Editor Kate Thomas, and experienced factual producers from the Gritty Talent team, to share top tips, potential pit-falls and their take on building a successful on-screen TV career.

This session is particularly designed for talent from underrepresented groups in media, as we’ll be covering some of the biggest barriers to entering the industry, but more importantly, ways to overcome them, and the support and schemes that are out there to help you progress.

Ask questions to our panel in a safe and inclusive space, and hear what commissioners and development producers are looking for when they scout for new factual talent.
