These workshops include a range of activities and discussions aimed at promoting self-awareness, emotional intelligence, and effective communication skills. The benefits of attending these workshops include improved confidence, greater self-awareness, and better communication with others.

Students can expect to gain valuable insights into themselves and others, as well as practical tools for navigating challenging communication situations with grace and ease.

Media Literacy and Communication Confidence workshop 2 – With industry level knowledge, Jenae provides the students with valuable insights on how to navigate and critically analyse media messages, as well as how to communicate effectively in various settings.

Through interactive activities and discussions, participants will enhance their media literacy skills and develop communication confidence, ultimately empowering them to be more informed and effective communicators in their personal and professional lives.

Thank you Jenae for your professional and compassionate approach when working with ACPA’s emerging talent. Our young artists enjoy working with you and benefit immensely from the experience. It’s been a pleasure.

“I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to participate in media training with Jenae Tien. The way in which she presented the information and hands on training was amazing. Jenae was able to access my public speaking abilities, coach me on how to improve and give me confidence to appear in front of a camera in a mock interview. Jenae’s feedback was presented in a way that I was able to understand and be better prepared for any future interviews. Jenae is great to work with and I highly recommend her.” – Participant from the Australian Rural Leadership Foundation MILPARANGA
