About Ken Budka

Efficient, detail-oriented, upbeat, reliable, easy-going and easy to work with. I listen carefully and read client notes and directions on every project.

As a professional speaker for over a decade, I helped children and adults improve communication skills and tools for success. I understand the importance of presenting materials with clarity and confidence while making an emotional, personal connection with the audience.

My voice captures attention. It conveys authority, yet feels conversational. It's emotional. It's down-to-earth. It's refreshing, enjoyable, and easy to listen to.

Everyone loved the VO. You nailed it! My editor went ahead and used your mp3 version and it sounds fine. You can send me an invoice when you are ready. Great job.

Ken provided me my sound files exactly in line with the criteria I gave, and he was very attentive to details of the script. I would highly recommend Ken Budka for projects requiring a true professional who is a pleasure to work with.”

I have worked with Ken Budka for close to a decade and I speak from experience when I say he is a joy to work with and has an infectious positive attitude. In fact, I cannot think of a time he did not have a smile on his face. He is an incredibly hard worker with a high level of integrity. I am always excited when I get to work with Ken on a project because the quality of his work is consistently outstanding, often times exceeding my expectations. The combination of his enthusiasm, work ethic and ability to take direction is a rarity. When faced with a challenge, Ken always focuses on and seeks a solution. He is constantly honing his craft and I feel he is a master communicator. I would highly recommend Ken to anyone who is looking for a true professional and outstanding results.
