To be a better voiceover …

… you need to be better at listening. I know, it’s counter-intuitive, but true. So, without further ado, Julian Treasure’s TED talk, 5 ways to listen better.


  1. Well, AMEN to this, Bob. It’s so easier as the world gets noisier and busier, to fall into the poor listening trap. Thanks for sharing this – it’s a keeper.

  2. Bob, I would add this for voiceoverists: Listen to the voices and the deliveries that are popular now. When a client gives you a direction that refers to a trendy commercial, you should know what that is – and more importantly, you should understand the essence of that read and what makes it powerful.

    What is it about Morgan Freeman’s delivery that makes him the standard for so many clients? If you haven’t really listened and tried to deconstruct hia read, you’re just going to do an impersonation – which is usually not the goal.
