'Pouring the Foundations to Build Spectacular Narration Reads' 

3-Hour Online Workshop

with Dian Perry

Monday 26th April



What is the primary objective of a narration performance? If you guessed ‘communication’, you’re close, but not quite there. The most important aspect of voiceover narration (or any type of performance, for that matter) is connection.

You could have the most beautiful sounding voice in the world, but if your audience doesn’t resonate with the message or story that you’re trying to get across, then what’s the point?

The keys to great narration are letting go of the analytical mind, setting strong foundations and generating the right energy, intention and emotion to reach your intended audience.

It may sound complicated, but this way of working will actually simplify your narration reads and allow you to connect fully with your audience.

Join Dian for this groundbreaking narration workshop and she'll show you how!

The workshop is designed specifically for those who want to get out of their heads and LEARN ways to CONNECT with the MESSAGE in their scripts. Previous attendees say;

'Informative and with a good mix of practical coaching & advice.'

'So much good advice and lots of practice on using the voice & the body. I found out how much I want to do medical narration. Got so much from Dian's class!'
'Absolutely fabulous! So much help & advice.'

What you will learn:

This interactive workshop will forever change the way you approach your narration reads. Whether you're working on an audiobook, a corporate film, an e-learning project or something in-between, putting a few simple foundations in place beforehand will allow you to narrate more intuitively and connect more deeply with your listener. We'll also be talking about common narration issues like mindset, focus, self-monitoring and mental clutter and how to resolve them. You won't want to miss this opportunity to create spectacular narration reads from the inside out and from the ground up.

'You really blend the artistic with the practical, and that makes such a difference.' Nicole Brysse 

'Dian is fantastic! Knowledgeable, humorous and very encouraging. Love her!'


In this workshop Dian will be working 121 with 10 voice actors. You will be given scripts before hand to prepare and then Dian will work with each person on their reads. This is an incredible opportunity!

There are 2 options - the first is to book a spot as a reader, there are only 10 of these available! The second is to be a watcher, this is where you don't do any reading but you get to sit in and watch how Dian works with each actor and directs them.
