“It’s been a while since I completed my Radio Presenting course at biebie Productions, but one thing you must know is that I have not forgotten your excellent mentorship, guidance and in depth training. You gave me the confidence I needed and helped me to better project my voice abilities. 

Moreover, your assistance in further developing my presenting and voice skills has paid off. I have secured some voice over work via a voice over agency in Gardens, Cape Town for some reputable corporate clients (eg. Shoprite in house, MTN, Pearsons Lifeskills). 

I have also recorded a professional voice over (radio presenting) demo with your referral /contact Nic Pretorius. I have sent my demo to community and commercial radio stations and I am patiently waiting for my breakthrough to showcase my skills. Clicks Radio Station has listed me on their database for future posts and I have been fortunate to receive some brief (hands on, practical training) radio presenting internship exposure from the Clicks Radio Station Manager. I am currently a presenter on Radio Kaap Se Punt 102.7FM – Friday mornings 06h00 – 08h00. Recently embarked on radio presenting on Radio 7441FM Malmesbury ”
