Feedback
"Laurence is a true professional. For the 2017 OAC Excellence Awards Laurence was tasked with a challenging performance to bring to life an animated character via a live on-stage performance and live read of a recently released children's book. This annual awards event brings together over 600 staff from the childcare industry from a night of celebration. The audience is challenging to say the least, as the youthful group socialises and often disregards the on-stage content. Despite the short lead time given to Laurence prior to the performance, the unusual content, and a very challenging audience, Laurence was engaging, embodied the character of the performance, and won the crowd over with an entertaining, authentic and charismatic performance that resulted in rapturous applause. In addition to this live performance we have used Laurance for voiceover work as the voice of “buddy”, OAC’s animated mascot for the past twelve months. Laurence has delivered every time with perfect representation of the character and conducted himself in a highly professional and efficient manner on all occasions. We have no hesitation in recommending Laurence” 360 Sport and Entertainment

"I’ve known & worked with Laurence Brewer for a number of years recording a wide variety of voiceovers. We sometimes work in a formal corporate environment with lots of clients in the room, & sometimes in a laid back relaxed production setting. Laurence arrives, reads the room, settles in & just does the job. He is a skilled presenter with confidence & humility all in the one package."

"I had the pleasure of working with Laurence first as my student at NIDA and subsequently when I employed him to facilitate sessions for me in the corporate sector. Laurence brings an incredible sense of detail, dedication and passion to everything he does. He is a masterful communicator and carries authority and authenticity in everything he does. One of his great strengths is that he is able to do this to different and diverse audiences. I highly recommend Laurence as a corporate speaker and communicator and am confident that those lucky enough to work with him will come to the same view."
