While there’s no doubt activating multiple human senses simultaneously increases the impact and retention of information, the question of, “Who is the best choice to voice over our PowerPoint presentation?” is the query we’ll be addressing today.
“Bob in our marketing department seems to have a nice voice, so he would be a great choice, right?” Wrong.
Although Bob may be very talented at creating marketing campaigns and acquiring vendors to complete deliverables, Bob’s strength is not in delivering impactful and professional voice narration. Nor is taking him away from his existing work efficient. Your PowerPoint presentation will be seen by some or all of the following; your employees, clients, investors and potential customers. You get one chance to get your message across in a compelling way that makes them take action and get on board. You want them to experience your presentation, not simply “watch it”. Activating their senses with a powerful visual presentation, captivating music and engaging voice narration gives you the best chance of delivering that experience. The quality of your PowerPoint presentation leaves a lasting impression of your company on its viewers. You chose what that impression will be.
An experienced, professional voice talent will not only bring the professional voice you need, but also has the professional audio recording equipment, editing skills and vocal training to provide something that Bob in marketing cannot. The wow effect.
