Zara is a uniquely versatile presenter, not only in the range of programmes she is able to present from news and sport to entertainment shows, but also in the fact she worked her way through the ranks as a producer and therefore has an invaluable understanding of the production process. I would highly recommend Zara as an asset to any TV project.
This was by far one of the best media training courses I have ever attended. So many tangible insights that I can take forward and not just theory!
Zara was a great instructor - she is clearly an excellent presenter which gave us a good role model to follow as we participated in the practical session.
Zara was a wonderful instructor and so knowledgable. I would have no hesitation in recommending her services to anyone looking for expert Media Training, led by someone who has been there, done it and got the t-shirt - and some!
She empowers the people around her and leads with kindness and humility. She effectively influences decisions with creative thinking and brings a powerful sense of humour to her projects. The scope of work she undertakes is extensive and she has an impressive ability to bring stories to life. Zara is a powerful, influential force for younger women and minority groups and having her onboard elevates our ambitions.
Zara delivered a great workshop on Resilience: tackling imposter syndrome at our annual Race Equality conference. Participants appreciated the availability of a workshop tailored for minority ethnic audience, contextualised to tackle imposter syndrome. Despite the challenges of delivering a virtual workshop, Zara was engaging and provided tools for participants to use.
