ABOUT

Radio & TV Presenting… Hosting… Voiceovers…
Audience Warm-Ups… Writing…

With the best part of thirty years of experience under his belt in broadcasting and live entertainment, it’s little wonder that Greg Scott has worked for and delighted a whole host of clients, producers and executives since first taking to the stage in 1986.

Let’s begin with his television work.

Whilst having been involved chiefly with entertainment and game shows, Greg can expertly turn his hand to any genre, working with or without autocue, with or without talkback, live or recorded.

Here’s his showreel (2m 50s):

In October 2017, he was summoned to Paris, recording an English version of a hit French gameshow, to help sell the programme to English-speaking territories (footage coming soon). 
This is the eighth such occasion he’s undertaken such a task. 
They love them a bit of Greggles in that there France.

Mid 2017, he appeared on two of Channel 5’s, huge, sprawling clip shows… “When Gameshows Go Horribly Wrong”, talking about other people’s slip-ups – And a HUGE one of his own… (scroll down to the ‘MISCELLANEOUS’ section)

He has been recording voiceovers for all sorts of people – From promos for production companies, to ads for Yell.com (writing them as well)…

Voiceover Recommendations:

I’ve used Greg as presenter of game show run throughs for BBC and as daily v/o contributor for ITV’s Alan Titchmarsh Show. He has always delivered exactly what was required and was never less that utterly accommodating, professional and a pleasure to deal with. A real talent and loves doing well what he does so well.

Cillian De Buitlear, MD, Luminous Television.

We used Greg for a character voice that depended on excellent comic timing. He delivered a spot on performance to the delight of all concerned, within a couple of hours. Highly recommended.

Stuart Headlam, Camelot Group PLC.

Greg is rapidly becoming the voice of our station. Very fast turnaround and great quality. A distinctive voice that really helps to give the A1 Radio a strong identity.

Ed Keeley, A1 Radio, Peterborough.

What a great, genuine, honest, reliable service with a very fast and prompt turnaround. Would highly recommend to any business, no matter how big or small. Have recommended Greg, on many occasions, to other radio stations.

Rob Hughes, Cannock Radio.

Recent work for Fizz / RDF: The official MIPCOM Promo for The Crystal Maze.

CORPORATE

Award ceremonies, product launches, corporate events – Anything that needs a frontman.

Unflappable, accomodating, understanding, warm, authoritative and so much more, Greg hosts / comperes / MCs in whatever style YOU require.

There is only a little footage of Greg’s live work available, as for most of what he has presented is laden with copyright / restrictions.

However, below is a short clip from the Young Enterprise Awards in London, together with a glowing reference from one of the event’s organisers.

“Being an MC can be tough work at the best of times, but it’s known to get particularly challenging when you have hundreds of excitable teenagers, doting parents, high-powered businesspeople (and the odd Cabinet minister) in the audience at the same time.
From the moment Greg came on stage to present the ceremony, he had the audience’s full attention, and his quick wit and humour certainly lightened the mood as competitors delivered presentations, and waited to see who won overall. With something for everyone, he never put a foot wrong, and his continued audience interaction added charisma, laughter and warmth to make a great atmosphere a perfect one.
I would highly recommend Greg Scott as a MC for any event.
Extremely talented, professional and likeable both onstage and off, his efforts for our flagship awards ceremony allowed his versatility and vast experience to shine through.”

Connor Sephton, Managing Director, Visualise Media Group

AUDIENCE WARM-UP

Greg has warmed up audiences for a huge range of shows, since 1990.

Countdown, Stars In Their Eyes, The X Factor, Wogan, This Is Your Life, Through The Keyhole – The list goes on.

Sadly, there is only one (low quality) recording of Mr S doing his thing – And you can see it now (Countdown, 1997).

Whether a small audience (As shown), or an entire arena – Greg will get your audience in the mood.

WORDS OF RECOMMENDATION

“Greg Scott was the lead presenter of a talkbackTHAMES ITV show for me a few years ago, and was an extremely successful choice as our host. Viewers loved him and cast and crew were delighted to work with Greg who became an integral member of the team behind the scenes as well as in front of the camera.
He was warm, funny and personable and built a very dedicated fan base for the programme.”


Alex Mahon, CEO, Channel 4.

“Greg Scott – Fantastic with people and a truly excellent live host.”


Michael Leggo, former Head of Light Entertainment, BBC Television

“I first had the pleasure of working with Greg in 2005 at FremantleMedia, when I booked him to host Quizmania for ITV1 (after being a big fan of his work for some time).
Greg is simply one of the most talented and creative presenters working in British television today.
He exceeded my expectations and demonstrated an incredible talent at hosting live television and game shows.
He was reliable, professional and dependable.
It was an honour to work with Greg and I would highly recommend him for any production”.

Chuck Thomas, Former Head of Programming, FremantleMedia
 


“It is a source of constant amazement to me that Greg Scott is not yet a star of the highest magnitude.
His brain (roughly the size of an airship) knows the elusive “how to…” of presenting both television and radio.
He is a consummate professional with a ready wit and is that most elusive of performers: a reliable, trusted and talented one.
You don’t often get those three bits together. His grasp of a format and his instinctive ability to bring out the best in everything is only a small part of the entire package – and that package (standing at around six feet high) is one of the best, nicest, personable, joyful packages I have ever known.
Do yourself and him a good deed. Book him at once!”


The dearly-departed Danny Greenstone, Fremantlemedia Executive Producer, International Entertainment

“Greg is a joy to work with; He’s enthusiastic, cheerful and as professional as you can get.”


Howard Huntridge, Senior Executive Producer, Worldwide Entertainment, FremantleMedia

“Over the years I have worked with the very best talent in the entertainment world on both sides of the Atlantic.
Greg is truly a hidden gem that would hold his own against the best of them.
His knowledge of the entertainment world is only matched by his passion and his professionalism”.


Jim Brown, Former Head of Entertainment, Scottish, Anglia, Yorkshire TV


”Working with Greg was a sheer delight – Professional, talented and all with unrelenting good-humoured energy”.


Nick Thorogood, Head of Factual, Entertainment & Formats, BBC Vision

 

“Greg did a brilliant job of our English speaking pilot; It’s a pity he’s not French!
A great show needs a great host and he’s one of them!”


The Late Francis Vacher, CEO, French TV
 


 

“The first time I saw Greg on TV, it immediately struck me that here was one of those exceptional performers who is genuinely able to make an instant connection with the viewer at home.
Amongst Telly Professionals this is known as ‘…getting through the glass…’ (Referring to a Camera Lens or, more commonly an Autocue).
Proficiency in this skill can ONLY be achieved via experience. GREG SCOTT is a master of this skill and, to his credit, makes it all look far too easy”.


Director / Producer, Royston Mayoh
