WHAT IS CORPORATE NARRATION VOICE OVER?
Marketing departments for corporations and brands have to cut through a lot of noise to reach an ever-jaded audience. Overt sales efforts turn off most modern consumers, and companies are constantly on the lookout for ways to alter their message toward today’s buyer. Increasingly, brands are relying on video as an effective method to convey their new efforts, sales promotions and ideas both internally and in front of possible investors. Your voice is key to making a presentation or promotion truly align with that brand’s message, overall image and purpose.

LEARN "CORPORATE SPEAK"
As companies use storytelling as a method of selling their products and services, we in the voiceover industry work to tell each story in a unique way, using a company’s specific language. Corporate voiceover talent need to understand how to interpret a client’s copy using the words, terms and phrases of that client’s industry. I’ll work with you on identification and extraction of significant words as a means of better comprehending the company’s intended narrative - finding the story hidden within the copy.
I have them, and wear them unapologetically. My career has involved pursuing tech, engineering, education and all things innovative (I still have my first CAD project)! Something about how technology moves the human race forward and enhances our lives makes me just giddy, and I pride myself on being an early adopter of new and experimental tech. My training sessions involve working with students to both implement and understand the current tech used in voice over, giving them the advantages they need to compete in today’s industry.

Successful voiceover artists can go from ‘good’ to ‘great’ with proper coaching in corporate narration, and I know first-hand how much potential and growth exist in this genre.
