The first time that I got up to speak into a microphone, I found it very intimidating. It was difficult just standing up there let alone attempting to deliver ad copy with credibility, flare and professionalism. That’s where my Gold Package training with Charles Michel and The Winning Voice made the difference.
From my very first five-minute phone conversation with Charles Michel, he began to evaluate and develop my voice over potential with the skill of a master. Throughout my training, Charles Michel made discovering the voiceover professional in me fun and rewarding by teaching me a few simple to understand fundamental techniques and giving me the personal attention I needed to apply them.
He had a knack for pinpointing just who I was behind the microphone and helped me develop that persona. But one of the things I liked most about his training style was his way of making me feel that I was the only student he had in the whole world. He was totally focused on preparing me for a successful career as a voice over professional. I found his passion for the art of voice over inspiring, his knowledge of the industry empowering.
Charles Michel and The Winning Voice gave me the edge I needed to become a successful voice over professional.
In addition to training the voices of hundreds of people, Charles Michel has been an actor, singer, character voice performer and voice-over announcer.

Most people work hard at never appearing foolish. They avoid being “too” animated, energized, opinionated, eccentric, etc. From the onset of puberty when teenage peer pressure compels people to be “cool” and fit in, most folks live in dire fear of being laughed at, which is probably the largest obstacle in getting the winning voice… Because it blocks free exspression. Intellectually, you probably already know that if “they” laugh at you, you will not suddenly drop dead. However, you need to start to believe this at an emotional level as well. Laughter is not life threatening! So, the quickest way to get over the fear of others laughing at you is to make sure that they do!
