Talent Spotlight: Eleni

This Russian Voice Talent Raises the Bar

It’s challenging to find the right English-speaking voice talent, let alone a native Russian performer! You need someone who’s professional, can speak Russian fluently (obviously!) and records on time and on budget for whenever a project arises. Well, you’re not asking for too much from GM Voices! Introducing Eleni, one of our preferred international talents and our newest talent spotlight! Friendly and coachable with a great sound, Eleni is sure to deliver on any script.

Listen to Eleni’s samples below and let us know what you think!

“Hi, there! I’m Eleni, your Russian voice-over talent. With an interest in public speaking, I understand the importance of having a quality voice when it comes to delivering a message. It’s especially true in cases when the visual part of nonverbal communication is missing, and all that’s left are the tone, speed and overall mood of the voice. That’s why, before my recording sessions, I like to learn as much as possible about the project or company I’m recording for and get a sense of the organization’s dynamic so I can communicate that through my voice.

This is my fifth year working with GM Voices and I always look forward to collaborating with an amazing team of creative, inspiring and highly professional people.”

From Russia with GM Voices (In Studio)

What Happens When a Voice Talent Records In Our Studio

When you select a voice talent to represent your brand, you may not think twice about the recording process. You know it generally follows these steps: the voice talent records (in our Alpharetta, GA studios or from remote studios around the world via ISDN), a GM Voices engineer edits the recording, and then it’s delivered to the customer in the requested format. But what if you want to see a live session and can’t make it to a recording studio? What happens then? In that case, we’ll bring it to you! Well, kind of.

The video below shows how a session generally goes when a voice talent records live in a studio. What makes this video even more interesting is that it’s with one of our Russian voice actors (you may recognize the voice). Now, isn’t that more interesting than hearing us tell you about it?

Future Contact Center Summit Recap

GM Voices Hits a Hole-in-One in Orlando

Escaping the cold Georgia weather wasn’t the only reason Jay, Chad and Bethany traveled to Orlando, Florida for The Future Contact Center Summit. This annual event was an opportunity for us to learn more about the contact center experience, both where it is now and where it’s going soon, and how GM Voices can help companies get there. At the summit, the green team (you’ll understand once you see the pictures) took every opportunity to connect with attendees–while they were exhibiting, at the various networking events–and even bumped into some current customers. Overall, the Future Contact Center Summit was an invaluable experience that advised attendees on how they can improve the customer experience at every touchpoint.
