In addition to your PowerPoint file, we suggest a quiet space and a good internet connection. Use a microphone. A few examples are: earbuds, Airpods, a USB headset, or a USB microphone. CTL has loaner microphones available at our rowhouse location. The sound will be much better than the computer internal microphone.

A few delivery tips from the team:

Relax. Be yourself. Retakes are fine since this is a working session. Our audio editors will remove ums, uhs, misspeaks and more. Tell a story, give examples from your work, share your passion about the subject matter.

When describing graphs, tables, maps and illustrations be the guide. What is the take away for the learner? Remember to add sources and citations.

Pre-recording meetings are available to review our process. An audio producer will be working with you one on one throughout the session. We want your lecture to be the best it can be.

We look forward to working with you soon.
