Do you want a cookbook deal? Perhaps you yearn for TV fame? Fancy representing a top knife range, sharing your skills in food demonstrations, or even spruiking for your favourite vegetable? You need an agent. Do you want someone who can coordinate offers, juggle your commitments and keep your best interests at heart? You need a manager. But if you want someone who’ll work hard on both counts to make your dreams a reality, you need Entrée.
The general public’s interest in chefs and the food scene is insatiable – food pun intended. Where chefs work, what they cook, eat and drink, the equipment they use and even what they wear is intriguing to home cooks, food lovers and fans. Brand managers, marketers, advertisers, event organisers and TV and print media producers, publishers and editors want to leverage that intrigue into dollars and exposure. Entrée will present you to those key people.
We take the time to get to know you, your interests and your career goals – that’s the talent management side. You won’t just be a name on a client list. We will look at ways to build your profile – perhaps by shooting a recipe-of- the-week video for this website – that will also serve as a show reel for TV and advertising. If you feel you have the makings of a cookbook, we can help you write a proposal and pitch it to publishers. We will chase leads, follow up contacts and handle contracts and negotiations while you’re busy on the lunch shift – that’s the agent stuff.
It’s in our interests to be proactive and tenacious on your part, because we only make money when we achieve a success for you – we take a small commission for acting as both your talent manager and agent. We work with you – and for you.
