Montréal based voice-over artist Geoff Allan, who has contracts in sixteen different countries and voiced an undisclosed commercial aired in the 2013 Superbowl, recently founded a new Meetup group for both working and aspiring voice talent located in the Montréal area.
The group is 100% bilingual so both French and English talent can participate in the meetings. The group was created to help local voice-over artists learn from each other, mingle and exchange contacts.
Meetup has the largest compilation of networking groups worldwide. Their system makes it as easy to start up a brand new group as it is to find one out of interest in the 9,000 or so that already exist. You can find everything from performance and artist based groups to general freelancing and business groups.
According to their website, Meetup’s mission is to revitalize local community and help people around the world self-organize. Meetup believes that people can change their personal world, or the whole world, by organizing themselves into groups that are powerful enough to make a difference.
