Change of Plans for March 2012

Well, this is one of those good news/bad news posts.  The bad news is that it turns out I will not be available to teach my full-day eLearning voiceovers class at the eLearning Guild’s Learning Solutions 2012 conference in Orlando this March.  My sincere apologies to anyone who had already signed up; I hope to be able to offer the session again at a future conference, or you or your organization can contact me directly from this site to arrange a training at your site.  If you were already signed up for the session in March 2012, I’ll give you a discount if you schedule your own session at your company.

So, why am I not going to be at LS2012 this year, much as I was looking forward to it?  Because I’ve just been cast in a fantastic role in the first New York City revival of Richard Greenberg’s play The Violet Hour! It’s a funny and thought-provoking play, and let’s just say that my role represents a real opportunity to be seen at my best in NYC theatre.  My character is a well-educated man on the edge, hilariously (and sometimes shockingly) outspoken, who is confronted with a printing machine that prints potentially life-changing information.  Rehearsals start February 13th, and I can’t wait.

Again, my apologies that I won’t be at LS2012 this year.  I was so eager to teach, attend lectures, and check out the annual Expo of new software and other goodies.  But I understand why my agent submitted me for this show–it’s an incredible role, and an opportunity too good for me to miss.

The play is being produced by The Active Theater in NYC, and will run from March 9-25.  If you’re going to be in town, I hope you’ll plan to see the show and say hello afterwards.  I will post more information once I know it.  Or you can click the logo on this post to visit the theatre’s web site.

I look forward to hearing about LS2012 from those of you attending, and I hope I’ll see at least some of you at the theater, too!

Sign Up Now for My Full-Day Certificate Program on eLearning Voiceovers!

Well, here we are at the end of 2011!  And suddenly the eLearning Guild’s March Learning Solutions 2012 conference doesn’t seem so far away.  If you’re the person assigned to create voiceovers for your company, and you want to step up your game to make your work truly memorable, then my full-day certificate program on Tuesday, March 20th, 2012, is all about you.  But if you plan to join me, you need to sign up asap–I’m only accepting a limited number of students so that I can give one-on-one feedback to each participant.

Visit my Courses page to read feedback from my 2011 participants, as well as a description of the course.  I’m very proud of each and every one of my 2011 students–the improvement in their work after just the one day of training was nothing less than remarkable.  And they each have a certificate from the eLearning Guild to attest to their accomplishment.

You can click the image on this post to read a description and the eLearning Guild’s web site, and there’s a handy registration button right there as well.  See you there!

Learning Solutions 2012 Encore for My eLearning Voiceover Certificate Program

I’m delighted to announce that Heidi Fisk of the eLearning Guild has invited me to present an encore of my full-day certificate program in eLearning voiceovers as part of Learning Solutions 2012.  I taught this pre-conference course for Learning Solutions 2011 and the feedback from participants was unanimously tremendous.  Heidi does not typically repeat learning offerings from one year to another, but because I accept only a limited number of participants in my course, she has made a wise exception.  So, if you wanted to attend last year but weren’t able to, now is your chance!

My session will be on Tuesday, March 20th from 8:30am-4:30pm.  Learning Solutions 2012 will again be at the Hilton Hotel near Downtown Disney.

PLEASE NOTE: There must be a minimum of 10 enrollments in order for the Guild to hold the session, and for me to make the trip.  They will be checking enrollments by January 20th.  If you intend to enroll, please do so by January 20th if at all possible, so that the Guild has an accurate headcount.  In addition, I am only allowing 15 participant maximum, so that I have sufficient one-on-one time with each participant in the course of the session.

This is an extremely hands-on session.  I think if you were to ask any of last year’s participants, they’d say it was a lot of fun, and a lot of practical learning in an easygoing, supportive environment.  Think of it as the most fun you’re ever likely to have at a boot camp!  I wish I could convey to you the sense of satisfaction last year’s participants expressed at the end of the day, when each and every one of them audibly demonstrated how much they had learned in the course of just one day.  If you look on my Coaching page, you’ll see some quotes from last year’s group.  You’ll also see how much this course normally costs!  I deliver this course for the eLearning Guild primarily as my way of giving back for all I’ve learned along the way in my own career.  So I encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity: you won’t find better training on this topic for a better price, and it may not be repeated.

If you’re charged with creating the voiceovers for your in-house eLearning and communication projects, and you want to improve your script, your performance, and your recordings, then this session is for you!  Click the image on this post to read a full description of the program.  You can also register from that link.  Browse through older posts on my web site to see more information about the course from last year.  And feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

I look forward to seeing you in Orlando on March 20th!
