Voice Message Me With SpeakPipe

Today I have installed a plugin on my website called ‘SpeakPipe’. It’s a service where you can send me a voice message through my actual website.

Why Maude In Accounts Should Stick To Her Own Job

At times, I just don’t understand some people. On the odd occasion, a client or prospect will come to me enquiring about having a voiceover recorded for a video they’re producing.

It’s Nice To Have Fans

Sadly, not a fan club – ┬ájust actual spinny fans. I’m the last person that would complain about this unexpected spell of good weather we’ve been having. I adore it. So good in fact I’ve almost forgotten what trousers feel like. And even better news, I’ve managed to really get some mileage out of my…

Mike Hurley – The Voiceover Legend

Mike Hurley is someone you could have passed in the street and have no clue who he was. But hear his voice, and you’d more than likely know it instantly.

It’s amazing how your mind tells you you’re hearing something completely different, even though you’re not – which goes to show that clear pronunciation and annunciation is absolutely key to getting your message across if you take a look at the below video!
