The VoiceOver Network began in July 2013 when Rachael Naylor started organizing small meetups with a few other voiceover friends but realized very quickly how useful they were as an informal networking opportunity, particularly within an industry that can be isolating. So, she started running events on a regular monthly basis in central London and they’ve grown in size and popularity ever since, with our January 2015 event selling out in less than 28 hours, and our October 2014 event selling out in less than 90 minutes!
These events aren’t just for voiceover artists, but for anyone who works in the voiceover industry. Rachael works hard to make sure they are useful, so ensures attendees are a mix of voiceover artists, agents, producers, sound engineers, production companies and casting directors. Those who’ve come to our events have secured work, agents and clients, received advice and support and made new friends.
The Abaton Calendar is a resource created for and by voice talent, to help create meaningful connections and forge and maintain professional and personal relationships. (And hopefully, have a hell of a lot of fun in the process).
