NOOSA HEADS  

Samantha is running workshops at the Sofitel Noosa, St Andrews Anglican College, St Teresa's and Noosaville State School in 2023

 

"I actually teach the exact same exercises and tools to the teens and kids as I do the corporates and they often catch on more quickly. Whether they are debilitatingly shy or extremely confident and wanting to pursue work in TV, the skills and tools will benefit them socially and professionally for the rest of their lives". 

 

Some of the kids and teens who excel are offered representation by Dare Enterprises and are now working in TV and film.
