Jonathan specialises as a ‘Voice Of God’ for live events, particularly awards shows where anything can happen! Jargon-laden scripts written by the client with no changes allowed, unexpected audience reactions, last-second changes to sightread, all taken in stride.
In the studio, he has decades of experience at presentation, news reading, commercials and trailers, corporate narrations: all making use of the ‘authoritative but friendly’ tone (a client’s phrase).
His latest branch into online events has included live continuities for the multi-studio linkup, pre-recorded countdowns and intros for a huge financial webinar, pre-recorded nominee citations for an award show and live sightreading of audience questions for a banking AGM.
