Tommee Tippee product guide
Suresh Ajani, IT Solutions: “Was a great pleasure working with Emma, she is very accommodating, professional and provided excellent work with a fast turnaround. Highly recommended.”
Dan, founder of Plancake.com: "What I liked about working with Emma was that she just made it happen: I asked her for something quite complicated to arrange but she went the extra mile to deliver what I wanted."
Peter Rogers, The Giggle Group: “A lot of female voiceovers seem to fall into one of two groups – young and clubby or mature and corporate. We’ve used Emma recently and were very impressed, she fills the gap between those two extremes perfectly. She has a great voice and knows how to use it, she injects enthusiasm and energy into her reads as well as warmth and pathos. I expect us to be working with her a lot more in the future.”
Andy Johnson, Saland Publishing: “Emma is an absolutely top draw voice artist and presenter. I have contracted her on numerous occasions over the last fifteen years and she always delivers beyond expectations. Fantastic voice and delivery and a lovely person too!”
