Pure Talents had the privilege of conducting a 2-day workshop with professional presenters at SAFRA Radio JIA 88.3 FM. During the full-day sessions, trainer Danny Yeo shared his years of media experience as well as invaluable tips and lessons on hosting onstage as an events emcee.

Trainees included: Kai Ying, Shi Han, Ben, Jia Ming and Shu Hui.

88.3 Jia FM is a Chinese radio station of SAFRA Radio in Singapore. 88.3 Jia FM is the only bilingual station in Singapore that plays both Mandarin and English all-time favourite ballads from the 1980s to current hits.

With his 8 years of experience as a lecturer in Ngee Ann Polytechnic, his 10 years of involvement in theatre and more than 20 years of hosting on-air and on-stage, Danny Yeo conducted the workshop in his own unique way of combining different skills, knowledge and expertise.

Even as full-time professionals, the attendees remarked that they found the workshop insightful, useful and enjoyable, even though they were stressed out having to face a senior fellow practitioner from the media industry. Some comments included:

“the critique sessions were the best, for individuals and also for the collective group, served as a reminder and also enabled us to see from another’s perspective”;

“immediately helpful to our professional jobs”;

“the exercise were real, enabled us to consider having audiences in attendance”.
