Media Skills Expert & Facilitator

Alan Shortt has been working in radio and television in Ireland for the last twenty years, gaining wide experience from both behind and in front of the camera.

He has worked as a presenter, performer, producer, and is currently a regular contributor on RTE Radio/TV and BBC Radio Ulster.

As a live performer he has also learnt first hand, how to face the fear of standing up to speak in front of a live audience. This is where the concept of Media Skills Ireland was born.

Alan has been host and MC for various corporate conferences, private functions and awards ceremonies, and from this experience he has learned that many Chief Executives and professionals still face the fear of speaking in public.

Alan founded Media Skills Ireland in order to address this natural fear that is shared by every living person on this large blue planet where we all live. Eliminate fear and anxiety about speaking with planning, preparation, and practice.
