The term ‘talent’ is often confused when it comes to the meaning of the word. What is talent? How do we know if someone has a special talent? And more importantly how do we express ourselves when we have one? This April our Saturday nights have once again been taken over by one of the nation’s most popular television programme, also known as Britain’s Got Talent. We eagerly watch audition after audition of individuals showing their talent to the judging panel (Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon) and also to the many people in the audience. Just thinking about the audition process is nerve racking enough, so is there any wonder why so many people freeze on stage? Nevertheless, we either watch people grasp their moment and truly shine, or we watch people utterly, and embarrassingly, fail whilst our hands are carefully placed in front of our eyes not wanting to look!
With this said, we live in a generation where people can excel in anything they want to, we are more open minded about what is considered as a talent, and we tend to rally around individuals that have an unusual talent. In previous years people have (narrow mindedly) assumed that a talent has to be something such as dancing or singing, and while this is still a popular choice when it comes to talent shows, people over the years have become more open to the definition of what ‘talent’ is.
At Venture we LOVE the idea of people getting their moment to show off their hidden talent and what better way than to have our own talent competition?! We are running a nationwide competition where customers get the chance to show off their hidden talents, whatever it may be, and these images will then be judged by a panel of professional judges to select 1 National winner and 18 regional winners. Who needs #BritainsGotTalent when we have #VenturesGotTalent ! Venture Competition: My Talent
