Phil Sayer is a former BBC regional television & radio presenter. He lives in Bradshaw, Bolton, where he runs a voice-over recording studio business (Sayer Hamilton) with his wife, Elinor. The couple have twin sons, Alex and Ben, born in 2005.
After a spell learning his radio craft in the Middle East and in London, Phil moved to the North West of England in 1976 to join Piccadilly Radio. Later, he moved to the BBC in Manchester as an in-vision newsreader, combining his TV news duties with a daily radio programme on Radio Manchester.
These days, he presents corporate video programmes, and hosts conferences, for a wide variety of clients, from large companies to government agencies. Either solo, or with Elinor, his voice has been heard on literally thousands of radio and TV commercials, as well as e-learning, training and educational programmes.
The multinational power engineering company Alstom regularly invites Phil to destinations such as Hanover, Amsterdam, Delhi, Bangkok and Montreal, to perform highly-technical 3D engineering presentations at specialist exhibitions. He recently completed a series of in-vision sales-training programmes for Mercedes-Benz Passenger Cars.
You're just as likely to hear Phil's voice down the phone while you're on-hold as you are to hear him apologising for a late train; his voice is used extensively across the UK’s rail network on automated PA systems.
Phil prides himself on being easy to work with, happily accepting direction, and willingly offering his own ideas and experience to help make each job as effective as it can be.
