I had the distinct honor and pleasure of speaking at the Voice Actors of NYC’s inaugural (and one-of-a-kind) voiceover business & marketing conference, VOcation NYC.
This is truly a unique event! Never before has anyone attempted to create a conference dedicated solely to the business & marketing side of voiceovers, but VO wizards Carin Gilfry (the voice of CVS) and Jamie Muffett (VO School Podcast producer) did it. And they did it oh-so-well.
This three-day event was jam-packed with invaluable content. Everything from marketing tips to website info to legal advice were presented in highly-informative breakout sessions. The panels were stacked with agents, production companies, and even notables from ACX and Voiceovers.com. Even yours truly got to present a session about the virtues of Direct Marketing…
Thanks for the Instagram love, Finley!

TIP OF THE WEEK
I did the math and I’m pretty sure VOcation NYC was the 22nd voiceover conference I’ve attended. Wow! VOcation ranks pretty high up there. If you are looking to learn more about the “in the trenches”, “grownup” stuff that will truly move your voiceover business forward, save your pennies and go to VOcation NYC next year.
