Give yourself the edge and learn how to control those nerves when you walk in the audition room. Be prepared for any question casting or the network throws at you!

Based on encouragement from an executive at Nickelodeon, Katalyst is bringing in a top media and interviewing coach to work with our talent. The auditioning process can be overwhelming. And when you begin to get close on booking series regular roles you can go through interviews with network executives that can be very intimidating.

So Shannon O'Dowd has agreed to come in to our region to work with a handful of our talent. We had her work with a small group of our talent in October and I knew we had to have her back to work with more of our talent and for an entire weekend!

a host, she’s done QVC as well as being the face of many spots in the infomercial world
