The Actors Centre

The Art of Selling Yourself

WHAT IS IT? A series of 12 weekly workshops, exploring the most effective ways of selling your performing skills to potential employers and how to stand out in an overcrowded marketplace. HOW WILL IT WORK? We will discuss a different topic each week. These will include finding out what’s casting and how best to suggest yourself, promoting yourself online, career goals and motivation, networking and being memorable, preparation for auditions and castings and maximising your impact in the audition room. There will be an opportunity to air and share questions and experiences with Richard and those in the group, and after each session, we’ll adjourn to the Green Room bar to get to know each other on a more social level. WHAT DO YOU GET OUT OF IT? A weekly career focal point, providing impetus for action, coupled with a support network for performers, with or without agents, at any stage of their career. Price: £195


This workshop runs over 12 dates

February 15, 22, March 1, 8, 15, 22, 29, April 5, 12, 26, May 3, 10
