Nationwide events planned by Sound Women

Women who want to work in radio can find out about voice-over work, music presenting and pitching ideas in the latest Sound Women events.

They are just some of the topics being discussed by the networking group at a number of upcoming events.

Liz Kershaw, Sam Hall and Reju Sharma will talk about how they have followed their passion for music, their highs and lows and sheer determination to make their mark in music programming at the Roundhouse, Chalk Farm Road, London from 7-8.30pm on Thursday 26 June, chaired by 5 live journalist Clare McDonnell.

On Tuesday 10 July, the group will be running an introductory workshop for those interested in the world of voice over work. FVO Laura Shavin, will be hosting the event. A regular on BBC Radio 4’s topical comedy ‘The Now Show’, Laura will be explaining how to work out your voice type, how the voice over world works and what kind of jobs are available.

It will be held at The Academy Zone, BBC New Broadcasting House, London W1A 1AA from 630 – 830pm. Although it will not include voice training, if there is enough interest, Sound Women will run a future voice training workshop.

Sound Women spokesperson Dina Jahina said: “This is just the start of a great summer of Sound Women training and events, which we hope will inspire women to be creative, positive and pursue their talents in the audio industry. We are developing opportunities across the UK, so that people can come together, learn and network wherever they live and work.”

Further Sound Women training events are being planned for Cardiff on 22 July, Glasgow on 11 September and Belfast on 9 October plus a day long Freelancer Festival in November. More details will be available at
