Tommy Thompson

Resonant, Knowledgeable, Humorous, Easygoing

Voice Description

Warm, professional and resonant, my trained voice speaks with knowledge and authority to convey your message or topic with conviction and sincerity. Whether the need is getting attention, getting laughs, or getting agreement, I shape my read to reach your goals.

My vocal range is mid-bass to high baritone, with a neutral American English accent. My vocal quality is smooth and even, with expressiveness and emotion as needed by the project at hand.

With over 35 years of business and public speaking experience, I'm a skilled presenter with a keen understanding of the importance of business communication. However light or serious your business message is, I can help convey it understandably, enthusiastically, and persuasively.

I'm a professional. I respond quickly, meet deadlines, am easy to direct, and always strive for complete client and colleague satisfaction. My broad consulting background equips me to quickly understand client needs and director desires in almost any setting or topic. I respond with appropriate performances that engage the audience, and save time and money for the director and client.
