"There's a progression happening now where it went from 'you had to have a website, then you had to have some engagement, blogs and things like that, and then all the way to an instagram presence, a video presence; and now we're seeing the next generation of that, as podcasting becomes a billion dollar industry, and Voice becomes another way for people to connect with the story behind your business. Alexa Skills and Podcasting in a Flash Briefing world, becomes an important way to get your name out there and build character behind your business."

These are the words of Will Acuff, co-founder of Corner To Corner, a Nashville-based non-profit that is changing the lives of under privileged or financially challenged inner city-based entrepreneurs and youth via entrepreneurship programs and reading initiatives.

Acuff's organization was a key partner in the 2019 Nashville Voice Conference (and the beneficiary of 100% of the proceeds).

The first ever Nashville Voice Conference focused on programming like:

...featured an amazing Keynote Speech from Marcus Whitney, and more than 80 attendees packing into Thistle Farms.

Nashville Voice Conference 2020 will take place on August 7, 2020, location TBD. Keynote speaker TBD and presenters TBD. For more information on how to get involved, visit

The mission of Nashville Voice Conference is to educate and empower all businesses, especially entrepreneurs, start-ups and small business owners to learn and implement Voice into their toolkit to become more efficient and effective.

Deep thanks and appreciation to anyone who supports or attended Nashville Voice Conference. We are well on our way to implementing our mission of empowering Small Businesses and Mid Level Companies (and Start-ups) to using Voice Technology to become more efficient and effective.

Thanks for reading, watching and listening, and have a great day!
