Jenny Hoops (Sept 25): Already Dawn, you have been instrumental in my narration career. After your ACX class, I sat down & completed my profile & started auditioning, referring back to the video over & over. That was Sept 5, the first day of school. My stats so far: Auditions: 3, Signed contracts: 2. I’m 3/4 through editing/mastering the first book, and just got the 2nd offer today. I’d say your class hit on ALL the key points that I needed to know to start off successfully on ACX!! Proof is in the results, eh?”
Jeremy Poley – “Dawn was a great instructor and her insight was informative. Dawn included the basic information on how to set up an ACX account for those who might not otherwise know and offered behind-the-scenes tips in making your profile professional and accessible. She also showed how to do basic research into titles and how to gauge their profitability, and how to promote yourself and any clients you sign with.”
Jenny Hoops – “Dawn is a captivating presenter, so down-to-earth and real, it was like she was just chatting with us all and sharing her wisdom (not lecture-y at all, which I loved). Dawn covered everything that I was wondering about with ACX. She completely covered everything the ACX-newbie like me would need to know. Dawn really balanced the in-person class with the online participants, I felt like a “real” participant, even if no one could see or hear me! This is a very focused and targeted webinar, and the topic is specific to a small segment of the population (new audiobook narrators). While it was inspired by ACX opening up to Canadian narrators, the information applies to anyone (not just Canadians), and I think it would be very successful if it were advertised to new US and UK narrators, too.”
Jessica Sagoo – What was most valuable was the information regarding ACX, and what to do as a beginner to set yourself up for success in your future. Dawn has such a passion for teaching that it makes the workshop engaging. She provide a lot of great information and is always happy to go above and beyond to give her students whatever information is necessary to make them succeed.”
Jacqui Lynn Fidlar – “Dawn Harvey is so thorough, hilarious, and is very generous in sharing the fruits of all her very hard work :). What was most valuable was learning about opportunities outside of Canada; being Union makes finding work very tricky here. Every time I’ve had the good fortune to study with Dawn, I’ve learned a great deal, and laughed a lot :)”
Karen Hamilton – “The whole thing was invaluable because this was info newly available to us and to have it explained by Dawn, an experienced user, was fantastic.”
Lawrence Lefebvre – “Dawn is always well prepared and gives a professional session but keeps the mood light and enjoyable.
