Snapchat For Business

My friend Ciara sent me a Snapchat video the other night of her and her family playing that classic 80s game ‘Hungry Hippos’. It brought back happy memories, reminded me I should message Ciara to say hello and then I was back to my dinner. A couple of…

The Happy Lollipop Man

When it’s Happy Lollipop Man verses Grumpy Local Authority there’s only ever going to be one winner. But West Dunbartonshire Council are quite right. You can’t have lollipop operators – happy or otherwise – pissing around giving kids high fives. Road…

Scotland's Silicon Glen

Remember that? Meeting with a client yesterday, the owners had a large map above their heads in their office which featured all the big electronics manufacturers which kept a base in Scotland during the 80s and 90s. NEC, Motorola, Chungwa…all names long…

Is Coffee Killing Your Business?

Watch them when you get off a train at Central Station. Packing into Costa, desperate for their fix. Latte, Mocha, flat white and whatever else the Barista can turn his or her hand to. It’s a ritual for many, an addiction for more than would care to admit…

Scottish wrestler Grado has been pleading with ageing music former icon Madonna for permission to use her song ‘Like A Prayer’ in his big American TV debut. So far, she’s said nothing and her people have said ‘no’. I’m not at all surprised. In fact, much…

Some business owners have jumped on this ‘social media content creation’ thing and lost the plot a bit. I see them on Linkedin going to all sorts of elaborate lengths to ‘say’ something when they’re really saying nothing. Crap like ’10 Things I Learned…

It doesn’t bother me whether clients like what I’m saying and agree enthusiastically or whether they think I’m from a different planet entirely! What matters is that they get what they needed from my visit. So some business owners want to know what I…

Madonna Falls...And Fails

Whether it was an unfortunate accident or a well planned stunt isn’t the issue. The facts are irrefutable. Madonna is irrelevant to the overwhelming majority of today’s music buying public. They don’t know who she is, far less care. Sure she’ll sell…

Corporate Video Isle of Skye

I’ve fallen in love with the Isle of Skye since my parents moved up there almost 10 years ago. It’s an area of incredible natural beauty (Glenbrittle fairy pools?), friendly people and some brilliant businesses. My family and I go up there regularly to…

Broadcaster, journalist, Scottish voiceover, social media and media relations training.
Introduction
Colin Kelly is a Scottish voice artist. He has one of Scotland's most recognised and trusted voices and has recently voiced commercials and presentations for Cisco, BBC 1 Scotland, SEPA Floodline, Tesco Bank, Vets 4 Pets, Scottish and Southern Energy, SP Energy Networks, Athleat, the National Museum of Scotland and Riverside Museum, Glasgow.

His background in newsreading and journalism means he is comfortable reading long form content and this has led to several e-learning providers choosing Colin as the voice for their training modules. 

Colin's voice is fresh, up-beat, authoritative and with a Scottish accent. Colin's vast broadcasting experience gives his voiceovers a versatility and with his own ISDN equipped studio and editing facilities he's available when you need him, even at short notice. He'll work with you until you're 100% delighted with the results. Click the link below to hear his showreel or email colin@colinkelly.net for rates and availability.
