Show Me the Money — Monetizing Voice: Part 1 Webinar

Moderated by Donald Buckley

The possibilities for voice-enabled AI are endless, and we’re seeing the future unfold right before our eyes. However, when we discuss ethics, interoperability, privacy, or any number of voice-related topics, there exists one driving force that leads to a core question—where’s the money?

The Open Voice Network is excited to launch our latest webinar series, Show Me the Money – Monetizing Voice. This three-part series will explore the financial component of the growing voice industry, namely where money will be found with and through voice. We’ll discuss how brands and agencies can justify the investment in voice with concrete examples of enterprise, B2B, and B2C use cases that focus on revenue, operational efficiency, and cost reduction.

Join us on 29 June, 2022 at 15:00 ET for Part 1 of the series, featuring an expert panel composed of prominent members of the voice community—Shyamala Prayaga, Roger Kibbe, Ron Jaworski, Nick Godfrey, and Donald Buckley.

We hope to inform attendees on the current landscape in voice as it pertains to investing, while also providing a glimpse into the future of how organizations will utilize voice to increase cash flow and redefine their business.
