With a background in hospitality and events, Filipe Borne joined Lucky Voice in 2019 as Head of Sales to lead the team responsible for reservations, event bookings and customer service. He did this whilst building close relationships with booking agents, third parties and corporate clients. Felipe has seen Lucky Voice to go from strength to strength, resulting in the company’s most successful Christmas in 2019, followed by record breaking sales in 2021 and 2022.
Filipe is the face of Lucky Voice, representing the company at industry events, and was pivotal to the success of our most recent venue launch at Lucky Voice Liverpool Street in 2023. He continues to advance the sales team with site-specific managers in constant dialogue with local businesses and associations.
PA Life wanted to find out more about the unique experiences Lucky Voice offers for corporate events, teambuilding and parties.
What support and facilities can your teams offer to event organisers both pre-and during their events?
Lucky Voice is in the business of leisure and hospitality, and we believe that pleasure is something to be taken seriously. Our dedicated events team have a great time helping plan phenomenal nights out that combine private room karaoke with exemplary service, high quality technology, and fantastic F&B.
Whether you’re trying to arrange the ultimate team building night, launch a new product in a unique setting, or give some out of town clients a night to remember, Lucky Voice can cater to any and all needs.
Our private karaoke rooms are ideal for intimate meetings and our spacious bar areas are perfect for larger networking events, conferences or presentations.
Add to all that an extensive artisanal menu of delicious food and crafty cocktails, and you’ve got some of the best corporate event and entertainment spaces in the UK.
What advice and top tips would you give to PAs and EAs who are planning events for their teams and clients, particularly those new to event planning?
We’re here to help you through the process, and make sure that your guests have a fantastic time. If you’re not sure what kind of event you’re looking for, but think that Lucky Voice could be the place for it, we’ll work with you to create a bespoke solution. We may even sing that first song with you!
How to ensure everyone has a great time at Lucky Voice – even those not so keen on singing?
We’ve been there! From experience, those who initially say they aren’t keen on karaoke are normally the ones that don’t want to leave the private pods at the end of the session! But we understand that, as the person organising the event, you may have to ensure everyone feels comfortable from the offset. Our bar areas are the perfect space for food and drink, and your own exclusive space in the bar can even be reserved to socialise, dance or chill – both pre and post karaoke!
Are you currently offering any special packages? Any last offers for Christmas, or winter warmers?
We’ve noticed a common trend of Christmas and winter events happening in January, and we can keep the festive season going by offering Xmas food and drinks into January 2024.
As a special treat from Lucky Voice, we’ll be happy to offer PA Life clients a complimentary bubbly reception for January bookings confirmed by 23rd December (minimum numbers and spends apply).
There is such and array of options when it comes to teambuilding and party venues in London and the cities across the UK.
What are your clients generally looking for when they book with you?
As we know, singing together reduces stress and improves productivity, and at a Lucky Voice teambuilding event you can expect to harness the power of karaoke to help break down barriers and build lasting relationships, all while having a lot of fun.
