Mike offers a voice deep in resonance, wide in range and with the right inflection for “serious”, “fun” – and places in-between! His voice speaks with authority and lends credibility to every recorded effort.
Mike has been professionally trained in VO by Suchavoice and Boston Casting, but began voice over work in the 1980s with several commercials and recording for 'Taping for the Blind'. He is a long-time Toastmaster and public speaker in business who has channeled his passion for spoken communication to the art of voice overs.
Mike's excellence in voice overs also derives from a successful career in sales, marketing and general management in the software industry. His professional business career taught him the imperative of providing an excellent product and customer service – so you can be assured of getting the voice you desired in the timeframe you required.

"Mike doesn't sound like "the guy next door" He sounds like 'the GREAT guy next door' His friendly midrange tone is masculine and on the level with underlying nuances of humor, compassion and intelligence- From "corporate nice guy" to "funny Dad" Mike delivers the guy we're glad we know."Cliff House Audio

“We’ve got some seriously demanding clients, and we’ve tested Mike’s range and flexibility – from serious businessman to casual Texan. He always comes through with the right sound the first time – and on schedule. He’s even been ‘on-camera’ for one of our clients and the feedback we got was ‘I don’t know what I was expecting, but this guy is [expletive deleted] awesome!!! Absolutely nailed it first time out of the box!’. We just booked him for our third project together… when it comes to voice over or on-camera work, we can’t recommend Mike ‘The Voice of Authority’ Slemmer more highly!”Powerful Webinars/Digital Magic Designs

"Mike has the prototypical great voice-over voice; rich and resonant. It’s the kind of voice you want to hear, but don’t hear enough. Warm, engaging and smooth. His vocal presentations have range, sound natural and are intuitive to the context of the read. 2 thumbs up, Mike!"True Tone Studios, LLC

“We asked Mike to provide an authoritative and upbeat voice for the introductory video of professionals for an industry gathering – and to do it ‘yesterday’. He interpreted it perfectly the first time, and then responded quickly with edits, helping us meet a very tight schedule. We look forward to working with Mike again soon.”Atlantic Video Productions & Internet Services, Inc.

"Mike was the voice of both of my books, and also did all the editing and post-production work on Understanding Other People, to bring this to market. He brought the right tone and range to make these come alive. My readers love it too: I got a call from a blind reader who told me that he's listened to audiobooks for over 20 years and these are the best-read books he's ever listened to."Author of *Understanding Other People: The Five Secrets to Human Behavior* and *Make Your Shift – The Five Most Powerful Moves You Can Make to Get Where YOU Want to Go*

Bev Flaxington for Job #90374 Audiobook recording of Self-Talk for a Calmer You Excellent work as the voice of my latest book -- "Self Talk for a Calmer You". He has great range and shows great passion in expressing this content; voicing it just as I would (if I had the talent!). Will definitely be employing The Voice of Authority - Mike Slemmer for some web promos too.Dec 4, 2013
