Warm, Wise Storyteller:
speaking your truth ~ moving your audience
Many companies make the mistake of using someone within the company who “has a nice voice” as their e-Learning narrator. It seems logical: Joe with the “nice voice” in Accounting is already on site and can be pulled away from his job for many days to record and all will be well, right? Not so fast. The purpose of e-Learning is to get the learners to learn. The quality of the audio portion and the skill of the narrator who can hold the learners’ attention is paramount. No attention = no information transfer = failure to learn or failure to retain learning = no behavior changes on the job = continued loss/risk for company = failed e-Learning effort/wasted money. Don’t invest so much in e-Learning and then have it be less effective than it can be: hire a professional e-Learning narrator like Michael who can make your learning module produce the learning, information retention, and behavior change you want to see in your employees.
Michael can deliver your e-Learning coursework not only with his warm, conversational style but also with a deep and wide understanding of learning tactics. Michael is a certified as a Master Trainer (a trainer who trains others to become learning trainers or facilitators) and has both narrated and/or facilitated learning modules written by others and has also created custom made modules for a variety of learning needs. This has given him a broad understanding of the needs of corporate learners and educators and he leverages that in his voice over work in e-learning.
His background in curriculum development and teaching/training at the University and Medical School levels and within well over 60 Fortune 500 companies gives him a unique perspective and insight into how to make e-learning narration as informative and as pleasant as possible for the e-learner. Keeping learners engaged in the module is key to helping them understand the content, retain it, and actually use it on the job.
Listen to Michael’s e-Learning demo as he demonstrates a less formal and more conversational style with medical staff e-Learning project, more formal with a Northrup Grumman learning module, a very inviting one for a children’s module, an interactive medical one, and terminology-filled medical one targeted at medical providers. Then, contact Michael to get his help bringing your e-Learning project to life. See the behavior change you want to see in your staff: let Michael help you make your e-Learning count!
