ABOUT US

ALWAYS EXCEEDING EXPECTATIONS

Successfully managing and developing the careers of high profile celebrities and artists

H Talent Management has a successful and proven track record for managing and representing the careers and business affairs of celebrities and artists in the sports, business, arts, media and entertainment worlds.

Our clients are the focus of everything we do and we work closely with each individual to creatively and strategically guide and develop all aspects of their career and bring their ideas to fruition.

H Talent Management is part of the much larger – H Entertainment Group, a company with a portfolio of other successful companies specialising in media, music publishing, image rights, travel, exhibitions and staging live music and sporting events on a global basis.

We work with our partner company – ASM, to provide us with an extended celebrity client roster as well as a highly successful voiceover production service, for use in radio and TV commercials, corporate films, animations, podcasts, film audio, narration and talking books.

H Talent Management is not trying to be the next global celebrity powerhouse, we are a medium sized company through choice as it allows us to focus on the needs of all our clients with equal dedication. It is what our clients say they love about us.

Our management team consists of some of the most experienced individuals in the industry plus consultants who are leaders in their fields. By working closely together we combine our skills to maximise the potential of every client we work with.
