Robin excels at straight narration, but also has a strong talent for voicing characters and accents. As a trained actor, Robin's voice is expressive, and can be commanding and assertive for business and training projects or soft, sincere and friendly for commercial, internet and education projects, or funny and quirky as the situation requires.
Robin is a quick study, and once she has a script, with a short review time, can complete the recording with a 24 hour turnaround for projects of 1000 words or less and a minimum of pickups.

* the voice of Hilary Clinton in a TV mockumentary in France
* narrator for an American radio documentary on immigration
*Scottish Professor McGonagall in a documentary on Harry Potter for CBC Radio2

(From an attendee at Robin's seminar):NKBA - Voices of the Industry
Great topic & presentation! Passionate speaker with information that hit home. It was great. Robin is a amazing speaker. She is passionate and easily expresses knowledge
through personal experience and thus makes it relevant for the audience.
(Regarding a presentation to working designers, testimonial from the Chapter President, Alexandra Klich):NKBA Ontario Chapter
I would definitely recommend your presentation to any NKBA Chapter or related Association, colleagues in related industries or consumers willing to undertake the "bootcamp" experience. Your entertaining, professional and very informative manner pleased the members and made for a very enjoyable evening.
(from Linda McEwan, Executive Producer):Smashing Pictures
As producer of HGTV's hit show Real Reno's, I have had the pleasure of having Robin Siegerman on our show many times as both designer and homeowner.
Her wonderful sense of design, humour and ability to connect to her clients and our viewers has made her an excellent addition to the show.
Thanks for joining me on my show. You were informative and interesting. My listeners got a lot of practical tips from you, and now know the differences between interior designers, architects and decorators. Keep up the good work.WDVRFM Radio

(From Beth Shatz, Chapter President on Robin's keynote speech):ARIDO - Grand Valley Chapter
We were very excited Robin accepted our invitation to be our Key Note Speaker Opening night at the first ARIDO Grand Valley Chapter “Interior Design Week”.
Robin enlightened and entertained the public and fellow designers on the benefits of working with a Registered Interior Designer. She was an excellent and entertaining speaker, and presented her ideas and information clearly and in a way that engaged our audience. I would recommend her highly in any public speaking capacity.
For a CBC Radio documentary I was desperately in need of someone who could perform a script in the style of Dame Maggie Smith. It's not an easy feat! Robin Siegerman came in and nailed the voice -- perfectly capturing the sound and style I was l looking for. Robin took direction very well and understood my notes quickly. Working with her was a treat.CBC Radio - Producer Shannon Higgins, The Current

"The client LOVED your read, thanks!"Daniel Burke, Shining City on the Hill Documentary

Working with Robin was nothing short of pure joy. Her very enthusiastic, proficient, smooth and articulate delivery of our product promotion videos on ‘You Tube’ truly was amazing.Fisher & Paykel
What would take most people days or even weeks to learn and absorb the information given to them, this extremely talented designer Robin listened intently and delivered a polished presentation not forgetting a single aspect of the product knowledge after only one hour preparation.
Robin is a true professional. She was very easy and accommodating to work with. Arriving punctual which for us is very important.
When our company teams viewed the information videos, they were no less than blown away wondering how Robin was able to learn and deliver the information so comfortably and accurately especially in such a short amount of time. As a humorous side note, they mentioned that they learned a few pointers themselves.
For any further media/video projects, we will be hiring Robin again.
