Derek Partridge British Voice TalentIn business, it's always nice to meet the people you serve.

It's especially wonderful when they want to meet you too.

Read more about our afternoon with Lifetime Achievement Voicey Award winner Derek Partridge and get to know another one of your peers.

It was shortly after 8 a.m. when the telephone in our hotel room started to ring.

The date was Thursday March 29, 2007.

Derek PartridgeCarol and Laurynda headed off to the vendors table and I stayed behind to pick up the call.

Who should it be but Derek Partridge on the line!

We have been privileged to serve Derek for a number of years now and jumped at the chance to sit down for a half hour and get to know someone who has given so much of his life to the business of voice overs, presenting on television and more.

It was easy to pick Derek Partridge out in the lobby as we raced in from lunch at a local pizzeria. If you have ever been to Derek's website, you'll know that he is originally from England and has one of the most velvety British voices on the planet.

It's amazing how quickly a half hour can go by. Before we knew it, we had to jet upstairs to James and Penny's first lecture and say good bye to Derek.

This trip has been full of great opportunities, and this is definitely one to remember.

Enjoy,

Stephanie
