TALENT-ETC

By Jennis Williamson

We have a closed Facebook group of our actors and crew members on Facebook and to date, since I stepped back in at Talent-ETC after a 2-year sabbatical, hosted over 80 live sessions as tools for education and training purposes.

We want our artists to be the best possible versions of themselves by always equipping them with active skills to embrace the BUSINESS aspect of showbusiness, but also not neglecting their humanity.

At the end of January, Dirk Swart, renowned Life and Business Coach also hosted a free session with all our artists to prepare them for the year.

We are also hosting an online workshop for the public with renowned writer Susan Coetzer. If you have been dreaming about that book you wanted to write, this is your chance to learn from the best

We are excited to partner with more clients and business to further expand the skills and mindset of our talented artists.

Happy Feb! Happy Valentine’s Day! Stay safe!

Greatness is not rushed for.

FINAL THOUGHT

By Jennis Williamson

In the midst of a pandemic, endless conspiracy theories and loss that entered our homes, we have no choice to adapt, to be grateful for things we sometimes take for granted.

Gratitude for our health.
Gratitude for the talent we represent
Gratitude for our actors working
Gratitude for an industry that will carry on fighting to keep its doors open.
Gratitude for those who embraced hardship and found new innovative ways to excel.

As this is a month of love, regardless…spread love and joy rather than negativity and jealousy.

Love and light
Jennis
