On Monday 18th January 2021, we hosted our FIRST ever convention for TSM – ONLINE!
The entertainment industry is struggling in the midst of this pandemic, with online performances being the main way forwards and we knew that we could bring valuable information to entertainers across the globe.
We decided to theme our 11 hour convention on the subject of Online Shows so that you could go DEEP into what it takes to prepare, run and perform Online Shows on a world-class level.

Mastering Online Shows:
We received A LOT of messages from supporters asking where they can purchase the recordings of the event and here is our approach:
Because we didn’t want to profit off of the back of our guests, we have made the decision NOT to resell the recordings to the live event (an ethical decision on our behalf)
… HOWEVER …
Our guests have kindly allowed us to include their lectures as a bonus on Day 15 of our 14 Day Course, ‘Mastering Online Shows’ as a little gift to say congratulations for taking and completing the course.
