Tax Tips with Effie Zahos

It’s almost Tax Time again!
Effie Zahos, Canstar editor-at-large, commentator and financial literacy campaigner is returning to the airwaves from June to take your listeners though the end of financial year.

With everything that’s happended over the past 12 months, the need for clarity at Tax Time will be greater than ever.  Jobkeeper, Jobseeker, working from home claims and superannuation are all on the list of things that everyone will need to think about come tax time. 

The good news is the Effie is across it all, so we’ll have a great package of tips relevant to consumers and small business as we move through the end of the financial year.
Each segment runs exactly 50 seconds, so you can add your own local sponsor credit to make it a neat 60 seconds. Here’s a sample.

New Voice Over Course in Melbourne

One of the latest projects we’ve just launched in Melbourne is a 2-Day Introduction to Voice Over workshop.

This is aimed at people with no experience in Voice Over, but have perhaps thought about giving it a go because a friend or colleague has suggested that they ‘have a good voice’.

The next course is running on July 20 & 21, 2019 at Bang Bang Studios in Melbourne.
