There’s no doubt that the past 2-years has been a challenge for those of us in business, events and production. The change was so prevalent that we even wrote quite a couple of blogs on it; How The Voiceover Industry Has Changed Since Covid-19 and Events in the ‘New Normal’ Post-Lockdown Innovation for Opportunities and Growth.
However, in the midst of all the disruption, this long hiatus gave us the perfect opportunity to rebuild our website and introduce more top talents too!
The Great British Talent Group is a boutique speaker, presenter & voiceover talent bureau based in the UK.
We have some of the most well-known names in the industry, including famous celebrities and we take great care in finding the perfect person for your upcoming event or project, including Lenny Henry, Claudia Winkleman, Ben Fogle and Dame Kelly Holmes just to name a few…
And we regularly work with some of the biggest companies in the world, helping clients find speakers for international conferences, presenters for exhibitions and voice-over artists for media producers.
We are a small team of 4, and pride ourselves on our fast and efficient customer service. We understand the importance of matching the right talent to the job and everyone we work with is handpicked for their professionalism and skill so you can rest assured knowing that your project, talk or production is in the most capable hands.
As events started to re-open this year, here’s a little insight into what we’ve been up to…,
Over the last few years, our usual way of working has drastically changed, and in turn, the way we socialise and communicate has also been affected.
As events turned virtual, our speakers stepped up and adapted their talks for virtual audiences.
And as lockdown eased we saw the emergence and growth of hybrid events take precedence – allowing clients to book speakers both virtually and in-person, and in turn, providing them with more scope and opportunities to reach a wider audience.
And as lockdown ended, our team at Great British Speakers were eager to attend events again and connect with our clients in person too. So after a year away from the events scene, we attended the International Confex events show in London last September.
We also had a very successful year at Great British Presenters – sending our presenters to host multiple (covid-safe) events and corporate videos as lockdowns began to ease. From the Olympics to movie premieres, here are just a few things our presenters got up to in 2021.
Plus, We’re pleased to announce that over the last 2 years not only have we expanded our roster and gained some incredible new talents, but we’ve also started working alongside presenters with green-screen home studios too. So you no longer need to worry about any potential restrictions when it comes to filming your corporate video as we have many presenters who can now professionally record content from home, perfect for explainers and e-learning courses.
When live events and the studio’s closed, voiceover stepped in to save the day, allowing clients to still connect and inform via video.
Prior to Covid, producers may have been a bit wary of hiring a voiceover artist to record from their own home studio, maybe some even still are… But if one positive has come from a series of lockdowns, it’s that creatives are now truly realising the benefits of hiring voiceover to record from home.
At Great British Voices, our voiceover artists’ were already all set up from home, with professional broadcast quality home studios. They’re also able to edit and self-direct to the most professional standard.
Therefore, when producers were unable to film with a live presenter in a studio, many were turning to the help of a professionally trained voiceover artist to narrate their video.
Yes, that’s correct. Great British Voices has also launched CELEBRITY VOICES so you can now hire a well-known famous voice to record your corporate video or commercial. After all, a recognisable voice can help to evoke trust within your audience and we have built a fantastic relationship with some of the country’s most well-known TV personalities, actors, presenters and comedians for your project.
We appreciate that there’s still a lot of uncertainty and that you may have some concerns about booking a speaker, presenter, entertainer or voiceover artist for an event or production at this time, but whether you go for a live, hybrid or virtual experience our talents will ensure your message is remembered and your event runs smoothly.
And do remember that ALL of our voiceover artists have professional home studio facilities, and can dial-in (via Zoom, Source Connect or similar) so you can direct them as they record your script. Many of our presenters have green-screen home studio facilities and many of our speakers have also jumped on the virtual bandwagon and now hold their talks remotely too – so no matter what talent you’re after you never have to miss out.
