We can’t wait to get back out there in the buzz of a real live show again, the first time we are able since Confex 2020!
Literally days after we dismantled our Great British Speakers booth at Confex 2020, London’s EXCEL became the Nightingale hospital.
Now in its 38th year International Confex London, is the UK’s leading exhibition for event organisers, existing to create an environment to help support, inspire and drive the events industry forward.
You can immerse yourself in the heart of the industry, International Confex is where event planners discover insights and trends that will improve their future events.
We have a particular affinity with this show, one of several we appear at throughout the events industry calendar.
That’s because only a few short years ago we launched Great British Speakers at the Confex show, which through lots of hard work and re-investment has morphed into one of the leading talent booking agents in the UK.
Our reputation for great service has secured us many repeat clients and has enabled us to represent some of the leading personalities in the entertainment and business world. People such as Ben Fogle, Louis Theroux, David Coulthard, Chris Boardman, Dame Kelly Holmes, Lenny Henry Alan Titchmarsh and Michelle Mone, just to name a few.
Great British UK is owned and managed by Jane Farnham and Steve Denison who have enormous passion and experience in the media and events industry ensuring that you receive a level of service and understanding second to none.
Like many organisations, the Covid-19 lockdown has forced change upon us; our speakers are now delivering on remote platforms, many of our presenters now have their own green-screen self filming setups, and of course, all of our professional voiceover artists already were equipped with their own home studios – so we felt very fortunate to be ahead of the game when it came to home voice recording. You can find out more about all of this below;
But amongst all of this, our business sustainability has also been at the forefront of our minds, and with climate change an ever-growing concern, we wanted to ensure that our studio facilities were as sustainable and environmentally friendly as they can be.
In addition to the practical aspect of adopting a sustainable energy supply, we’re also working with a number of our talented personalities who share our passion, such as young sustainability speaker David Saddington who is a member of the team organising COP26.
Hailing from Yorkshire (where our GB studio is also located) David first became involved with environmental matters when severe flooding hit the county in 2005. From that point, he dedicated all his energy to the cause and effects of climate change.
Below: David talks at the Powering Progress Together convention.
Bear Grylls is another of our star environmental speakers and was the UK’s youngest ever Chief Scout when he was appointed in 2009, aged only 34.
What are the Scouts doing about climate change?
From June to November this year, 57 million Scouts from across the world will take a stand and work towards a better world by taking action to reduce climate change. They’ll get hands-on to make a difference wherever they live, use their voices to inspire decision-makers, and record their actions for the planet.
She has been campaigning against single-use plastic since 2014, founded City to Sea back in 2015 and mostly spends her time connecting to nature, getting inspired by people who know how to fix the mess we’re in and then finding new ways to tell the stories that might just save us, and the magical world we live in, from climate breakdown.
Natalie will be attending COP26 this November.

If you’re not quite sure what a ‘Voice of God’ (VOG) artist is, well they’re the voice heard but not seen. They help the event to run smoothly, perhaps announcing speakers/entertainers , giving information about the next act, or inviting award winners onto stage.
Whether live or pre-recorded, a ‘VOG’ artist is a great way to make the event memorable by add some Hollywood-award glamour. Just check out Gina’s ‘VOG’ reel below, which includes her work with BAFTA…
With a professional ‘VOG,’ their experience sets them in good stead to make impromptu commentary and unexpected last second changes which creates uniqueness and spontaneity to every situation and event, increasing entertainment and eliminating the ‘cringe factor’. Plus their authority and seamless continuation that a really enthusiastic announcer adds can elevate your event to the highest professional level.
One of the best things about hiring a ‘Voice Of God’ artist is that their commentary can be pre-recorded (a great option if you’re looking to mix the audio with some video content) or be spoken live!
A definite plus point to having the audio pre-recorded is that the script can be tweaked and mistakes rectified . This is great if you wish to edit voiceover to video for example or have any tricky name pronunciations that the artist has to learn.
But there’s no doubt that a pre-record ‘VOG’ can lack charisma. Allowing your ‘VOG’ to host live, can definitely bring a spark of personality and additional humour to the event
As true professionals, what they say might sound ‘off-the cuff’, but it certainly isn’t – they know how to deliver, entertain and engage!
If pre-recorded is preferred, then know that ALL of our ‘VOG’ artists have professional home studios, so they can deliver pre-record content remotely (and can be directed via Zoom, Teams or similar) – or can travel to a studio of your choice.
We are a boutique bureau and only list the best of the best when it comes to our talent. Our lives hosts are true professionals, many of which you may even recognise as some of the UK’s most popular TV personalities.
Did you know that when it comes to online product reviews, 66% of consumers prefer to watch a video as opposed to reading a text-based review?
And, 84% of people say they’ve been convinced to buy a product or service from watching an explainer/demo video?
Therefore, it’s no surprise that explainer videos are a key tool to market a business, but why are they so beneficial?
Explainers are short videos (usually around 3mins or less) that details a company’s product or service. Many companies like to showcase this in the form of an animation, but they can also be pieces presented to camera. You’d usually find these either on the company’s homepage or product pages – depending on what the explainer is about.
So, if you haven’t got an explainer video on your website already, then here’s just a few reasons why should you get one…
For when it comes to choosing the right voice of your business/product, the voice it seems is just as important as the product itself; In 2017, Wyzowl reported that 75% of consumers decided not to buy a product because the video voiceover annoyed them. An informal and chatty tone is preferred by 83% of consumers.
Check out just a few of the explainers our artist have recorded;
