It’s a privilege to have the chance to attend numerous industry conferences throughout the year as a speaker and sponsor. From VO Atlanta to That’s Voiceover to WoVO Con, Voxy Ladies, V.O. North, One Voice, and others, it is great to support the coming together of our industry. This week I’ll be embarking on a trip to speak at the latest addition to the conference lineup, VOcation in New York, founded by Carin Gilfry and Jamie Muffet.
I get excited about going to all of these conferences, but VOcation has me especially pumped this year. Why, you ask? Well, VOcation is the industry’s first conference focusing strictly on the business of the business. We all know performance matters, but we also know that quality performance is a prerequisite for success. What many don’t realize is that in 2019 and beyond, learning the business of the business is equally critical.
The days when you could count on others to build your career for you are over. In the modern voiceover economy, it’s up to you to make your own success. Carin & Jamie had the vision to understand that our industry was crying out for an event focused on training talent to think like business-people as much as creatives, and I’m thrilled they created one.
It is my honor to have been chosen as this conference’s first keynote speaker, and I’m looking forward to setting the tone for a weekend that will help over a hundred talent take their next steps on the path to success.
I hope to see you there!
