A little about RISA TANANIA...


With over 13 years of experience in documentary style and reality programming, Risa’s approach to media training is vastly different from most. “Authenticity, above all other qualities, comes first.” In fact, she has made a career out of this mantra as she strongly believes pulling one’s own voice out is the key to being successful and respected in the new landscape of television. Gone are the days of classical, “on air” camera training methods.

The audience’s ear has become so attuned to authenticity that they will tune out any other too quickly.
We focus on projection, rhythm, confidence, accent…all of the crucial hosting 101 stuff, but the juice is in the story.
Their story.

Risa has workshopped with hosts, financial and legal experts, actors, surgeons and entrepreneurs… all who find that her story-producing and in-depth training translates across multiple mediums. She offers both intimate, one-on-one sessions as well as group classes, small and large.

TESTIMONIALS...

"Risa is the real deal. She truly cares about the people she works with, and spends time understanding their needs, challenges and opportunities. Her advice is actionable and fun, and most importantly, it works. Risa's down-to-earth approach has definitely helped me get to the next level." 
–Lauren Lyons Cole, Personal Financial Expert and Planner

"Ok, you want to know the truth? The truth is I am not a believer in bullsh*t. For that reason, I’m not really a believer in classes, but what I can say is this: RISA TANANIA is REAL. And for me she WAS that teacher. She is honest, and herself and that’s what she’ll extract from you, which is the BEST THING possible if you are looking to get into hosting. She’ll let you know what about you isn’t working, and then chisel her way to a modification. Furthermore, she understands the revolving door that is TV in it’s current medium, and she’ll pair the potential opportunities with your persona. I’ll be working with her for a long time."
–Tim Shelton, Actor and Host

"I’ve worked with many coaches and Risa is my favorite. She has amazing intuition for casting and a keen eye on the entertainment industry. Risa helps you identify your personal roadblocks, makes you practice kicking them out of the way and helps you get on tract to dominate. After 3 sessions, I was more confident on-camera and in auditions. I continue to work with Risa because each session is an education in media training that you cannot find elsewhere."
