ConVOs - The Business of 'The Business' with Bob Bergen - Wednesday, May 18th | 7-10pm
Being in the presence of an industry professional does not guarantee employment, as the clinics are for educational purposes only.
The Business of 'The Business' - Marketing Yourself
Wednesday, May 18th from 7-10pm PST - Zoom
Mistakes are only bad if repeated. What has worked? What has not? Who has no clue even how to market? How to agent your agent? How to secure a new agent or leave an agent professionally with grace? Marketing vs bragging. Needy vs ambitious. Come with any and all questions! This ConVO will cover all the topics on how to market oneself effectively, and will be a safe space to ask questions, receive feedback, gripe, share, etc.
This will be a space of honestly and a completely judgment-free zone.
Participants will be able to send Bob sample marketing emails, agent submission emails, demos, websites, etc. prior to this event on May 18th.
Voice Actor and Coach
Three-time Emmy nominated actor Bob Bergen announced to his parents when he was five he wanted to be Porky Pig. His mother replied, "You can't be Porky Pig. You're Jewish." Despite this, he was determined.

Combined with two years at a Meisner acting conservatory and three years of improv study with The Groundlings, he was able to secure an agent at eighteen and pursue his dream, while tour guiding at Universal Studios allowed him to eat. He's performed in all aspects of on-camera television: from sitcoms to soaps to game shows - hosting Jep!, the kids' version of Jeopardy! for GSN.
His voice is heard in thousands of commercials, promos, games, animated series and specials. He's voiced dozens of animated features, including Minions, Sing,
