...a long December!



Deepest winter is now upon us and maybe it's just me but doesn't it seem this is the perfect time of year for beautiful melodies and reflective lyrics...?

"A long December and there's reason to believe
maybe this year will be better than the last...
I can't remember all the times I've tried to tell myself
to hold on to these moments as they pass"
- A Long December
Adam Duritz, Counting Crows

...my clients!


People say the sweetest things! Here's a handful of so-lovely-they're-blush-worthy compliments from my clients and collaborators...

"I have recorded with Vicky over a number of years. She is both a consummate professional and a pleasure to work with. She has a lovely, bright and friendly voice. More over, she’s able to quickly grasp what you’re looking for and deliver – all with good humour and grace. Having used her home studio recently, I can happily say we were very pleased with the results."
Zoë Pearson, Senior Copywriter
The Gate Worldwide


‘Vicky is that very rare commodity… a voice over artist that instinctively understands a script! I’ve recorded about a dozen promos for BBC Radio Scotland with Vicky over the past year and she’s given each and every one of them a little extra something… She’s also lovely to work with!’

Ken Lindsay, Senior Promotions Producer
BBC Radio Scotland


“She’s
versatile, professional and client’s fall in love with her voice – there is only one Vicky Watt”
Ryan Ogilvie, Head of Creative Services @ Northsound Creative
Bauer Creative Services


"
Take 1 is a peach - we're very happy with that. Thanks again to Vicky, who responded to our direction flawlessly"

...Creativity In Education


"What Ted Talks celebrates is the gift of the human imagination,
we have to be careful now that we use this gift wisely...
seeing our creative capacities for the richness
they are and seeing our children for the hope that they are...
and our task is to educate their whole being
so they can face this future."

When is feeling spotty a good thing?
When you're Pudsy Bear of course!! It's that time of year again. I've just voiced a BBC Radio promo for their fabulous fundraising appeal, Children In Need. In alignment with my Ethical Voice philosophy, 50% of my fee (after expenses) is being donated back to the charity. Meanwhile, don't miss BBC coverage of this weekend's fundraising activities across the UK. Find out how you can get involved in fundraising for this year's Children In Need via the BBC website.

...Sustainable Business

"All truth passes through three stages.
First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident."
—Arnold Schopenhauer

Did you have a good weekend? I was working - on a Sunday! It was for a great cause though. I voiced an in-house corporate video for a major international brand. The great part is that the company was promoting the multiple benefits of embracing and pursuing sustainable practices within its own business. There was a time when most business leaders believed sustainable, ethical practices conflicted with the need to make profits for shareholders. Now even main-stream companies are beginning to accept that sustainability is the bottom line. You can find out more about award-winning corporate sustainability initiatives at The Guardian - Sustainable Business.

...magical spells!

"There are some things I know for certain:
always throw spilled salt over your left shoulder,
keep rosemary by your garden gate,

plant lavender for luck,

and fall in love whenever you can"

Happy Halloween!!!
