Scott Brick and Johnny Heller — two of the most sought-after audiobook narration coaches in the nation, with over 1500 titles between them—team up once again to bring you the most comprehensive business seminar in the country, tailored directly to the needs of the audiobook industry!  They and a dozen presenters—fellow narrators whose entrepreneurial approach has paved the way for others’ success, as well as representatives from several publishers and producers—will be on hand to answer your questions and up your game.

Based on the principle that the business side of our careers should be executed as artfully as the creative, this event is designed to meet you at your current skill level and propel you to the next rung on your career path, upping your game to meet the challenge of a changing industry.  They have teamed up with numerous industry professionals, narrators and publishers alike, to help attendees become more entrepreneurial and better allies to the publishers we partner with!

Attendees will be chosen at random, via lottery, and will receive personal instruction from Scott, Johnny, and/or their fellow panelists throughout the day, structured to address each person’s most pressing business concern. 

Panels Include:

>>Maximizing Your Business Opportunities
Managing pseudonyms, social media, and self-promotion to create greater recognition. General business practices you should be using no matter where you are in your career. 

>>Taxes
What does the new law mean for you? Should you incorporate? If so, what type? What deductions can you take? Professionals will be on hand to answer your questions.

>>Getting the Most Out of Royalty Share Agreements
How to balance the risk/reward. Are there options outside of ACX? Also, what if I want to purchase/publish books myself…? Discuss with pros who’ve paved the way for future success.

>>Union or Non-Union?
Agent or Not? Who better to ask than a VO agent? Dean Panaro of Abrams Artists LA will be on hand to answer your questions.

>>Creating Successful Online Profiles
Attendees will be chosen at random to make their ACX profile more engaging and user-friendly, while we also explain how to best use Penguin Random House’s online casting site, AHAB.

>>Publisher Roundtable
Reps will be on hand from Blackstone, Findaway and more (more signing up every day!) to explain how we, as narrators, can be better business partners with their publishers.
