VOICE Global 2020

I’m happy to say that I had the opportunity to speak at VOICE Global, which was 24 hours of interesting sessions and awesome presentations by the industry’s leaders – all related to voice! My presentation was about how to create an Alexa skill. It was streamed twice, once at 9:30 – 10 AM CST, and again at 1:00 – 1:30 AM CST. I was amazed to see that over 250 people signed up for my session. It was fun to stay up until 1:30 AM, and my mom couldn’t force me to go to bed! While I spoke at VOICE Global, I also attended a few sessions. My favorites were Doug Schumacher’s on SSML and Audrey Arbeeny’s about sonic branding.

Thanks to Pete Erickson and the Modev team for putting together such an incredible event!
