This year’s theme for VO Atlanta is 'Resilience', which is absolutely fitting considering how the VO community has adapted and grown over this past year, in spite of the huge challenges we’ve all faced. We’re very excited to announce that Sally Clawson, owner and director of Voice One, will be presenting at VO Atlanta on Wednesday 4/21 and Friday 4/23 on topics that will help you strengthen your voice-over resilience in commercial work!

If there was ever a time for making spontaneous choices, it was 2020. We have learned to pivot, adjust, improvise and take the leap over and over in the midst of relentless challenges. Gratefully, the flexibility of facing an unknown moment can be useful in your commercial voice-over work. By incorporating improvisation and spontaneity into commercial voice-over, you will release your self-expression to create a truthful and natural read that is real, on-trend, and a reliable source for increasing your competitiveness and booking edge.
Friday, April 23, 2021, 4:00 PM - 4:45 PM EST (1:00 PM - 1:45 PM PDT)
Confidence is as intangible as love or beauty but is crucial for a successful career in commercial voice-over. A confident, self-assured tone tells the listener that you know what you’re talking about and lends credibility to a product. The question is, how do you express it consistently in your reads when the world outside the booth doesn’t help you feel it? Increase your “read swagger” through a simple status-building practice that will gain your freedom from timidity and self-doubt, while bringing the solid sound of certainty to your reads.
We can’t wait to see you there!
