(Dan O’Day)
Running Time: 75 minutes

Dan O'Day doesn't think of himself as an air talent "trainer." He's a talent coach.

The difference? You "train" people (or even animals) to perform tasks according to a routine of systemized behavior. O'Day sees his job — and every radio program director's job — as helping people perform to their maximum abilities.

He'll share with you some of the key principles and techniques he teaches radio personalities around the world — and he'll teach you how to teach them to your own staff!

Attendee Reviews

"Dan's tips will help me to work better with my own talents."

"Dan's advice is 100% correct, timeless and exactly what will directly affect a station's programming."

"Very worthwhile, will greatly impact positively on my job!"

"Excellent, practical information. I caught myself writing down ideas I want to start implementing right away."

"Great advice on getting jocks to see beyond the liners."

"This session should be used not only as a 'PD Bible' but also in broadcast courses."

"Old and new PDs should review this material regularly!"

"Real, practical ideas for me to go home and apply. Loved the audio clips to back up the specific points."

(Presenter: Holland Cooke)

Holland Cooke always offers the brutal truth, stripping away the warm cloak of denial that so many radio people wear.

Increase your ratings....Increase your revenue....Deepen (and derive more profit from) your existing advertiser/sponsor relationships.
