To whom it may concern,Vale Inco (Global leading producer of nickel, copper, cobalt and precious metals)
For the past 6 months we have had the pleasure of engaging Derek Aubrey to provide voice-over talent for a diverse variety of Computer Based Training modules and interactive voice response phone message scripts.
We happened upon his convenient on-line service while in search of an alternative to a local supplier who had been letting us down recently with both the reliability and quality of their service.
Derek by contrast has quickly become a vital member of our extended network of support personnel, by providing prompt, reliable and high quality narration services, which in turn helps us to meet our customer needs with consistency, accuracy and expediency.
We look forward to continuing our relationship with Derek and would not hesitate to recommend his services to anyone who is looking for similar results.

In my position as Producer for Rogers TV I am always on the lookout for a voiceover person with a wide-range of talent.Rogers TV
Derek Aubrey has such a talent. I find him to be friendly, upbeat, professional voice for most any type of application. His voice style is clear, warm, positive and powerful and has been a great value to our station.
In my 20 year association with Derek Aubrey, I have watched him bring dynamism, trust and value to his clients.Borg Communications
Having partnered with him on a number of projects, I’ve witnessed Derek’s ability to view the big picture while honing in on the heart of the matter with laser like precision.
As a voice over artist, Derek is a gifted performer whose versatility allows him to deliver powerful narration as well as a trove of various character voices greatly sought after in the industry.
Most importantly, I trust Derek. His clients feel the same way. I strongly suggest that your business will greatly benefit by an association with Mr. Aubrey.

Broadcasting Client - "I just wanted to give you my feedback on the great radio commercials you wrote and produced. Our philosophy here is how important the message is; if you don’t have a strong message, your campaign just won’t succeed. Obviously some folks get it and some miss it completely !! Your spots were great radio commercials. The listener could relate to that feeling of being behind the wheel and picture themselves in the car. Very Cool!"Random Quotes From Happy Clients:
Marketing Company - "You were the brains behind this concept and YOU are the voice in both the spots. VERY well done Derek. I’m so glad you are on our team!!!"
Marketing Company - "Oh my!!! This is far beyond what I had asked for. You are simply amazing Derek."
Real Estate Client - Derek, this is absolutely awesome. We're going to attach to our homepage, and pitch the hell out of it.
Animation / Film Company - Wow, I'm really impressed - both by your fast delivery and the quality of the voices. (Character 1) and (character 2) - brilliant! With those two, I think we've found our 'sound'. Great! (Character 3) - I really like the small twists and turns you've put into his voice - the aahhh's and sometimes the vibrant sound, the angry tone here and there. Great stuff!
Automotive Marketer - "I got the audio file and it's great. And thanks so much for the quick turn around."

The other day I was famished and so looking forward to a client meeting at my favorite restaurant. The cooks at this restaurant know me as a bit fussy about my food prep. The way they handle it is why I love them. When the food arrived not only was it top of the line quality but we were given three variations of everything ordered for the price of one. The chef expertly added compliments to our food choices as a bonus to boot. The wait staff was quick and during the meal the atmosphere was giddy fun.Whitney Animation Studios - Chicago
Ok, that didn’t really happen, but if every restaurant worked like Derek Aubrey works that’s how it would go. I think I‘m getting famished for another Derek Aubrey recording again.
Keep Derek out of the restaurant business. If he ran a café like he delivers voice over talent, patrons would double in weight within the year.
For each animation I hire a Derek Aubrey voice over for I discover Derek has prepared so well he can’t wait for the recording session to provide multiple options for each audio clip. If I’m not exactly sure about the feel of something, I usually have a new computation on my door step the next day. Sometimes this includes creative solutions I hadn’t thought about.
Could you imagine a restaurant offering one price for a dinner but giving two and three variations for each entrée, plus extra sides to compliment the meal, plus all within in a giddy fun atmosphere, and then if you are not bursting from the seams already they bring over a few move side dishes to sample the next day? I just wore out a set of jogging shoes thinking about it.
