British Female Voice Over Artist


Corporate LiveWire Awards Prestige Award Winner

Jan 28, 2021 | 0 comments

Back in the summer of 2020 I was contacted by the Corporate LiveWire Awards to say that I had been nominated for a Prestige Award in the voice over actor category for Central England.

Obviously I was thrilled to be nominated but when I hadn’t heard anything after a few months I thought that was that and some other well deserving voice over artist had been selected.

Anyway, I was delighted to receive a phone call from Srina Masih from Corporate Livewire last week to tell me that I was the winner.
The Corporate Livewire Prestige Awards recognise small and medium sized businesses that have proven to be the best in their regional market over the past 12 months.

The judging panel base their decisions upon areas such as service excellence, quality of the service, innovation practices and value as well as consistency in performance The winners selected are those who can best demonstrate their strengths in these areas.

The story of my route into voiceover was something that grabbed their attention ( link to my other post about how Bradley Walsh launched my Vo career) and the fact that for the first year I ran two businesses side by side – my well established beauty therapy service and the voice over.

In those first years I voiced all sorts of projects such as corporate training videos and narrated numerous audiobooks.

Then in 2020, as all voiceover artists do, I began to find my niche in the voice over world as more character reads came my way. Voicing evil queens, witches and even a talking Christmas tree for a theme park in Canada.


All these factors impressed the judges but the clincher was my website and branding as The Mary Poppins of Voice Over. – a description that suits me very well as I arrive when required (whether the east wind is blowing or not!) appraise the situation, and get the job done. Spit spot.
