We engaged the services of Alan Dedicoat as a ‘voice of god’ to work with our host on stage announcing the Awards nominations. His easy repartee with our host Rory Bremner worked extremely well giving light and shade to our event.
I introduced Alan to the challenging world of live v/o on awards. From that day to this he has never let Haymarket down,,,ever. Consummate professional, wonderful raconteur and wit. Oh, and he's got a lovely singing voice if you give him the chance!

Alan was a pleasure to have and met all of our objectives. The audience absolutely loved him and he got full participation, which is not easy from a bunch of scientists!

Just a quick note about Alan yesterday - what a star! He was absolutely brilliant and quite stole the show. He was a real asset to the event and the client was delighted. Will definitely want to use him again!
Alan was fantastic. I’m so pleased that he was available. Alan was indeed the best choice for our voiceover.

How well did the speaker meet your objectives? Extremely well: provided humorous tone to an otherwise serious subject matter. He lightened the evening without taking away any seriousness. How would you describe the audience reaction? Fantastic – the audience engaged with Alan and found him very entertaining. Feedback extremely positive.
Alan was the perfect host, he presented the evening with excellent presence and at the perfect speed. I would wholeheartedly recommend Alan for events, he exceeded expectations. JLA were very supportive and helpful, Sarah was always available to answers queries etc.

Alan has been our 'voice of god' at our lively annual Awards event for several years. He hosts our quiz expertly and keeps our over exuberant guests in line - in a gentle but persuasive manner. We see him as an essential part of the continuing success of our event.

Complete professional as per last year. Happy to run through everything, made others feel completely at ease. The only small note we’d like to make is that we thought Alan’s introduction, explaining who he was and the lottery, overran a little. But overall, a complete pleasure to work with. Was very well received.
“Alan ensured the evening ran smoothly and to time. We have nothing but praise for the style in which he oversaw proceedings.”
We had great feedback and he was a delight to work with! Thank you - I'll be giving you next year's dates as soon as I have them!

It was not a surprise to me that Alan Dedicoat proved to be the most wonderful success at the first Care Home Awards yesterday. His lightness of touch, combined with ingrained experience of the awards process meant that the audience enjoyed a serene and faultless occasion.
Alan is without doubt the most superb host who kept our Annual Awards and Gala Dinner event flowing smoothly. His professional style, combined with a wonderful sense of humour, created a superb atmosphere.
Brilliant, or course. He knows the crowd and enjoyed great rapport with past winners, sponsors, and he made very welcome those who’d not been to the Awards before. Great job.
