A stutterer becomes a professional radio voice-over

Posted by Marc van Gurp | 25-06-2014 16:00 | Stories | Category: Health, Social aid

1 in 100 Belgians stutter. Which is a lot. But stuttering can be overcome. And Agency Famous proved it along with a professional coach.
Jordy has been stuttering for 25 years but was coached to become a professional radio voice-over.
And with great success. In fact, he was chosen by the National Lottery to record a radio campaign for Win For Life. Each radio spot is followed by a personal message from Jordy.

This documentary made for the Belgium Stuttering People Advocacy Group is an honest and hopeful story for many people who stutter. The Belgium organisation made a dedicated site, both in Dutch and English, with this documentary. It can best be described as a therapy campaign. The main target audience is not the general public but the stutterers themselves.
