What is the Ultimate VO Survivor – Weekend Retreat?

It’s an intimate, fun-filled, in-person TRAINING INTENSIVE, TEAM-BUILDING EXERCISE and VOICE ACTING AUDITION COMPETITION all rolled into one, with a focus on AUDITION SKILLS.

Thank you so much again for EVERYTHING. I am so thankful to have been a part of this past retreat and I can’t thank you ALL enough for all of the love, encouragement and beautiful energies you gave every one of us. What an honor to be a part of this talented bunch of amazing people and the boost of confidence it gave me to be a part of this list! Being able to meet everyone in person, get lots of hugs, learning and making great memories that will last forever, was everything I could have asked for! My greatest prize was being there with you all! I love you all and am so grateful to have you all a part of my life!!!

WOW!!  Thank you both for giving of yourselves so tirelessly to plan and implement a truly exceptional weekend experience, and Deb for opening up your wonderful home to everyone.  The Retreat was beyond valuable, and an absolute blast to share with a whole new bevy of friends, to boot.  It was a pleasure and an honor to work with you both, and inspiring to witness so many lightbulb moments blossom under your expert tutelage.  You have created something quite magical, I’m so grateful for the opportunities you provide.  So thank you, thank you, thank you!  You rock!!

Wow! I don’t know what to say… I’m honestly speechless. I am so very grateful to you, Deb and Elley!  What a decision to go out on a limb, back then, and take part in UVOS Take 3. From that experience, I just had to attend the retreat and meet you both. GetMic’d has been a gift itself and you two amazing ladies just keep on giving so much of yourselves.  Thank you very much for the appreciation, all the warmth, coaching, and the goodies! Thank you for being so giving. It was a lovely weekend and I learned a lot and grew a little bolder with taking risks!
