Testimonials & Success Stories

Talk Time is a fantastic Edge program. Even if you miss a few weeks when you jump back in Graeme welcomes you back. He's a wonderful host and does a really nice job of keeping the conversations going, connecting with his guests and making everyone feel comfortable. There is always valuable information to tuck away from both the guests and Graeme.

Hi David and Edge staff!

Just wanted to offer my feedback on last night's "Tech-Talk" session. I'm glad I attended! It was helpful learning about vo products that I wasn't aware of and hearing what others are using. I think it's great having a place where we can exchange information, get our questions answered and help others with their questions. Plus, it's a good opportunity to network and get to know each other.

It was really helpful too, David, having you on the phone to answer some of the questions and share your knowledge. I appreciate you taking time out of your busy schedule to be there.

Thanks,

Jan Kennedy

Good morning,
This was my first ‘Talk Time’. I did enjoy the information and lively banter among the participants. I will attend as many as I can. Thanks for doing this.

James and Tom were great on the 10/29 Talk Time! James is a great addition to the team.

The webinar was very informative and Scott did an amazing job managing the session.

Wow - where to I begin? When I first received the email invite to the Talk Time event I was somewhat hesitant. I just knew it would be a set up - you know, "come join us and learn all there is about the world of VO!" Of course the reality of it all is that you receive more of a tease and a solicitation on how to find out more information for a substantial fee. My experience with Talk Time was completely the opposite and was a delightful learning experience. I shared with my wife that this was one of the most rewarding things I had done by investing time in learning more about the business and even tips on building my own home studio. So much information in only one hour. Each person on the webinar was so genuine and willing to share their experience, expertise and perspective.

In short, I can not tell you how glad I am that I chose to join the event and I so look forward to future events. You guys ROCK and I look forward to receiving all that you have to offer in helping me build my VO business.

Thank you again!

Tom

Thanks for talk time, always learn new stuff when I tune in.

The pleasure was all mine! Your entire staff is priceless from all I’ve encountered. I have retired for the third time after being in broadcasting for 60 years. That’s six oh! After managing 7 radio and 2 TV stations and hiring voices during many years, I find myself in the position of ‘going for the gold ’myself in these years. I’m really looking forward to joining the group that I hear on your Webinar
programs. Through experiencing the ‘oil bust’ of the 80’s, living in New Orleans, I saw my fortune evaporate, but never my fortunes.
Your sharing of so much outstanding information to one and all is so refreshing these days!

I got a real kick out of the article by Joan Baker who accurately noted that the feminine gender is ignored so often because of the lack of a “Voice of God” quality. A la Betty Furness of many years past, the gals sure know how to sell the product. An Edge background would equate to a post-graduate degree to so many I would think. It’s obvious you’ve proved that your ladies are ‘in waiting’ and making the most of your training!! Keep up the good work of helping so many at a time when they really need the direction.

May God be exceptionally good to you all. From Texas... ‘yall take care’.

Hi Graeme,

Thanks much ...

I participated in the TechTalk last sunday. I had a great time, listening in, asking my questions and getting them answered. I learned a lot that evening.

Though, I'm not a professional voicer, I did also quietly listened in on the PRoTalk session, to learn and takes notes from the current working VO professionals! The information, again, was very invaluable.

Thank-you for the invite.

Angie

My apologies for the delayed response. I feel it's important to share what a great topic and amazing discussion we had last Sunday! Sometimes as voice artist we forget the basics of taking the needed steps to take care of our voices as we ready ourselves for the next session. I hope that others found a benefit in the tips I shared on the webinar as I most certainly gained a lot from what others had to say. It doesn't matter your skill level, in my opinion Talk Time is the place to be Sunday nights!

Terry

I loved it. James Romick did a great job of keeping everyone active and controlling one heckler. His sense of humor made everyone feel at ease. I'll be going to any in the future that involve authors. I've still a lot to learn.

Scott, the moderator, took a few extra minutes with me to help me at the end of the Webinar tonight. I wanted to let him know that the problem was that in the audio settings on my computer I did not have my headset's unidirectional microphone selected. It sounded like an air conditioning vent and was picking up a mild echo (even though the room was dead quiet) -- it was because instead of the headset mic, the internal computer microphone was selected by mistake.

So, if he ever encounters another bewildered attendee, especially one who has a new headset, that may be the problem.

Thank him for the extra effort for me. I'm looking forward to my orientation webinar later this month and I suspect my stuff will work fine, thanks to him.

Nate

I just want to say how much I enjoy the conference calls on Sunday evening. As a newbie I have found them very informative on many subjects. I know this requires time and effort - thanks for doing it and keep it up - Great Job!

Jim L

I'm never disappointed with 'Talk Time.' Graeme does a fantastic job and with all the guests - it's very informative. It's well worth staying awake until10:00pm. Thank you!

Theresa

You all are very supportive of the VO community as a whole and we certainly appreciate it. I just submitted my first audiobook and it is great to have somewhere to ask questions.

Lori

It was a great session! Thanks sop much for the people who put these times together ...and also all the contributing attendees. I truly find them beneficial!

David - Wow! Thank you for the invitation to participate in this evenings phone conference! I learned a lot from everyone and am encouraged to learn more. I think the 'hesitation' in the beginning was about good manners and not wanting to 'cross-talk' or interrupt other speakers. However, once we got going, I believe a lot was accomplished. I thoroughly enjoyed everyone's comments and information. I'm looking forward to next week and will hopefully be putting together an audition tape soon.

Everything is just fine with talk time. It's the highlight of my week.

Victor

Dear Scott, Thank you for hosting these as they are invaluable to me to get a peek into a career I am very interested in breaking into. My audio was not working on my laptop so I used my phone and was "listen only" for tonight. All of you sound like a great group - no pun intended! - and I look forward to learning more.

Louise

I enjoyed being involved in the webinar. Although I was one attendee who remained silent throughout the entire hour, I can advise I took a great deal of notes. :)

Leanne

To Whom It May Concern,
I love talk time! I have learned so much listening to others answer questions about the VO business. It is my favorite way to learn about the journey into VO. People are always very kind and informative which as a newbie helps so much. It is Great to hear about their experiences. So many of my questions have been answered in an hour on Sunday! Please keep it going, it is a very very worthwhile segment.

Anthea

I am new to this business and green as grass.

I learned more on Sunday then I could have by serfing the net for w week.

Thanks for TalkTime. I always appreciate the information!

Susan H.

I participated in the pro phone chat last Sunday, and I will be eavesdropping on the training calls as well. Love this idea, and I plan to call in whenever I can, what a fantastic resource!

Amy

I very much enjoyed the archived "Talk Time" entitled Promos and Trailers.
The discussion regarding the technical aspects of our industry was very much appreciated. Lots of good material and food for thought. Thank you all again for this forum.

Brian

Hello There!

I really enjoyed the Web class last Sunday. I just got laid off from my on air radio job, after nearly 34 years, and voice over work seemed like something I could do. Many of the questions were moot for me, as I will most likely use actual commercials and voice work that I produced over the years, but I loved the idea of all these folks coming together to ask questions, and the moderator/teacher being there to answer and steer the conversation.

It was a revelation for me, and I look forward to more of the same. What a great resource!

Thank you for letting me participate.

Holly

I wanted to say how informative the Talk Time on Audio Books was this past Sunday night. It was my first time joining the live webinar. I wasn't sure what to expect, but the host put me at ease by explaining how the discussions would be handled. My growing interest has been to explore and work in the audio book market, so I was very excited that they chose that topic to discuss. The guests (new and recurring) gave very helpful insight, and I walked away with a good page of notes. There was a nice camaraderie and positive energy as well. Will definitely be taken advantage of more Talk Time in the future.

Monique

I LOVE Talk Time! I am a newbie, and I love that you guys are so welcoming, and make sure the vets don't shame us on the call. You guys are all about education on all levels, and I am so grateful for your unselfishness in sharing the wealth. I look forward to the next one! Oh, by the way, could you do one on how to get on Pandora and other sites like it, and how folks are or aren't successful on them?? Thanks again!

S2

Thank you for providing this resource for training. I look forward to it weekly, and as a wanna-be VO actor I like to get as much inside-info as possible.
Thanks again!
