What a gem of a course Voiceover Kickstart is! Take it from an old dinosaur like me – I’ve been mightily blessed and very successful in this business of voice overs for 35 years so far…and I can’t believe how much I’ve been missing, and how much I’ve learned in the last six weeks of training. I truly wish this course had been available at the start of my career! Voiceover Kickstart, where have you been all my life?

I've just done the double Voice Reel Package with Guy and it was a totally brilliant experience. The process was considered and thorough and the final result is excellent. I feel that I finally have a set of reels that showcase my voice at its best and this is down to Guys dedication and professionalism. A true pro.
This is the first on-line course I've actually ever finished!! It was packed with really useful, informative stuff and presented in bite sized manageable portions!! Thanks so much; I'm ready to embark on the first stage of my VO career now, but no doubt will be back to pick up some more pearls of wisdom with further courses. Many, many, thanks, Guy. I've definitely enjoyed the journey! Dee

I've just finished the excellent 6 week voice over Kickstart programme. There's tons of tips and expert advice and it's FREE. Guy gave us so much information, from mic techniques to marketing, business to branding and reminding us to practise to perfection. I've got so much to think about as I try and build my own voice-over career, so thanks Guy. I was so motivated by the course I even got up at 5am to record my practical exercise. I suspect I'll be in touch very soon for a professional show reel! I've worked in broadcasting for years and I have absolute faith in Guy - he knows exactly what he's talking about. Book now!
Wanted to start getting into VO last year and the FREE 6-week course VOKS do really gave me the push and info I was looking for.
I naively phoned Guy one day saying that I wanted a voice reel. "What kind of voice reel?" He asked. "Er....?" He politely suggested I did the 6 week kick-starter course before taking any further steps, which I did. And I was glad that I did. I learnt so much and got that invaluable and impartial feedback on my voice from people who don't me which really helped direct what kind of voice reel was right for me in terms of both content and style. And it didn't cost me a thing ap... art from my 15 minutes a day, which was actually 15 minutes a day. At the end of it I spent an afternoon in Guy's studio recording the scripts that I had compiled under his Guydance. He made me feel very relaxed and was extremely wise and inventive in his direction. Indeed I felt that I learnt a lot about how to 'self-direct' in that time together as well which was a bonus. I'm very happy with the final result and have already been recommending his services to friends and colleagues. See more
What a fantastic programme! At times I found the advice so simple and wondered why these things hadn't already occurred to me, and on other days I learned a lot. I am now looking forward to employing so many useful lessons! Guy, thank you for sharing so much, and in such a user friendly way. Your years of experience shone through and I felt in very knowledgeable hands. I would recommend this course to everyone without hesitation! Tori 🙂
Just received my “The Triple” demos and could not be happier. Guy was fantastic with communication throughout and I felt completely prepared for recording long before the session itself thanks to his feedback and adjustments. Having completed his free VOKickstart classes and now recording my newest demos with him. I cannot recommend him enough. Thanks Guy!
Guys course was amazing in terms of opening my eyes to certain aspects of the voice-over business and demystifying others. Guy really has a passion for this and wants people to succeed, and Voiceover Kickstart is the place to go to if you want to succeed.
Well, I've just finished the 6-week VOKickstart course! I've found it enlightening, affirming and very enjoyable (especially when recording tracks to share and feedback on)! Now to crack on with my refreshed and newly-detailed to-do list, further paving the road towards my voiceover aspirations! If you're interested in heading into VO but don't know where to begin, or would like a top-up of knowledge about the industry, head to voice-reel dot com to book yourself onto this FREE course! Thank you, Guy Michaels for providing this invaluable VO resource. It will definitely be a key step on my journey into this amazing profession! Cheers! 🙂
Just completed my free, (yes thats FREE) course with VOkickstart and feeling inspired and empowered! I have been acting for 10 years but never had the confidence (or know-how) to dip my toe into VO work. My knowledge of the industry was also a decade out of date! The daily lessons totally unlocked the world of Voice Overs for me! I have learnt so much and really enjoyed having the power to develop. I now feel confident that I can build a new career for myself, so cant recommend it enough!
