Here at Earshot – we like to share opportunities that help you get into the world of radio promotions and production. So if you’ve ever wanted to be a voiceover and feel like you could do with some vocal training – then take note of this forthcoming event.

Aspiring female voiceovers will get the chance to receive top industry training thanks to a Sound Women training event next month.

Learning how to break into the world of  presenting, securing voice over work and finding out the best way to pitch ideas are just some of the themes being discussed in the latest series of events being held across the country by Sound Women, the networking and development group for women in the radio and audio industry.

On Tuesday 10 July, why not join in an introductory workshop for those interested in the world of voice over work. Multi award-winning and versatile British voice over artist, Laura Shavin, will be hosting the event. A regular on BBC Radio 4’s topical comedy ‘The Now Show’, Laura will be explaining how to work out your voice type, how the voice over world works and what kind of jobs are available.

Attending the two hour workshop will help you to learn how to identify what type of voice you have and what field of work you might be suited for.

The session will cover:

What voiceover work is
How the voice over world works
What work is available
What type of voice you are and more!

It will be held at The Academy Zone, BBC New Broadcasting House, London W1A 1AA from 630 – 830pm. Although it will not include voice training, if there is enough interest, Sound Women will run a future voice training workshop.

Tickets for members will be available at 10am on Tuesday 10 June, and non-member tickets from 10am on Thursday 12 June from

There are further events planned across 2014 for radio presentation and production as well as the skills needed for being a freelancer.
