.. and this time next week I will be worse.
29th May 2014 is the begining of the Makegood Festival. Yes, perhaps I have been banging on about it a little of late.
It's a huge showcase of some of the hottest, most creative businesses, ideas, innovators and entrepreneurs around today.
I'm delighted (and privileged) to be one of those businesses.
Clare Reeves Voiceovers will be exhibiting at Makegood. The only Voiceover Artist in the show.
I will be surrounded by arty people who make and sell truly beautiful and ingenious things. The visual impact of their products will be stunning.
And then there is me. A voiceover artist. I don't have gorgeous jewelry to sell or even teddy bears with artificial human teeth (trust me, they'll be there). So it will be me, my crew and some kit.
I'm going to be relying on myself and my voice to make the impact that I need to have for the event to work for me.
So, how am I going to compete with all the treasures?
In truth, it's taken some thinking about. But I'm there now! I am branded with my logos and images on EVERYTHING. - banners, postcards, press packs, my clothing choices.. even my hair colour!
It's reflecting the style and quality of my work. I'm all about glossy!
I have an office full of boxes of acoustic tiles and velcro and banners and kit.
During Makegood, I'm going to be using all this as a backdrop to showcase my work through my demos - which you can pop over and have a listen to as well as a chance for you to come and get involved.
You'll be able to give me a line to record for you in a style of your choosing. We will record it and send it to you.
I'm also going to be The Voice of Makegood - providing live announcements throughout the event to help visitors discover what is happening and to perhaps be a little bit showbiz with - if they let me..
So as I reach the 1 week to go stage I can say that I am ready and raring to go.
I'm excited about this opportunity and meeting the people who come along.
Let's just hope I can sleep the night before..
