>The learning journey continues…

I just love meeting new people and last night was no exception. I am part of a business networking group called BBA (British Business Alliance) who organise meeting events in some fabulous places.

So far this year I have been to dinner with David Blunkett MP at the House of Commons, had a guided tour around The College of Arms which is the official repository of the coats of arms and pedigrees of English, Welsh, Northern Irish and Commonwealth families and their descendants history, had dinner with three former Olympians at The Leander Club in Henley, even got to hold their Gold medals.

Last night, I was attending a BBA event in a Post-Production House in Central London that had been turned into an art gallery for the night with some amazing pictures by the celebrity artist, Sam Shaker. The sound studio in the basement had my mouth watering, even got to touch a beautiful U87 Neumman – oh, dream on. I will need to do quite a few more voice overs to be able to afford one of those. Mustn’t say that too loudly or my little 2200a will get upset, very sensitive these recording microphones you know.

Afterwards, I joined Sam, and some of my new film production colleagues, for drinks at his jazz club on Greek Street, called Jazz After Dark.

I think I could get used to this arty life – and tomorrow?

Just been invited to a Thames cruise followed by a clay pigeon shoot as part of a photo /PR event to publicise a new service that will be available to visitors here for the 2012 Olympics – I might even feature in the promotional literature!

Life is certainly starting to get exciting.

Especially as I am heading off to Latvia to close down and report on a EC funded project looking at quality management standards in training companies.

More soon with pictures and film.

I am working hard at creating a home studio for my future Voice Over (VO) work – I have the microphone (Sennheiser), a mixing desk and two software packages to record, mix and edit to a final stage of completion.
I have found a source for fantastic background music at Partners In Rhyme Royalty Free Music and Sound Effects where I can download music and sound effects that I might need for my multimedia projects.
Now all I need at the clients!
