He is joined by Mercury nominated Novelist and his manager Dion Peters as well as Wale from leading industry law firm Sheridans and Ayo who manages Kojo Funds. With elements of the music industry changing rapidly by the day, this panel discusses how that affects the role of a manager. Is there still a role for a manager in the industry, when should an artist need one and what does it take to become one. For all budding managers, this is the discussion to be at. You will hear from our panel of experts from the music and creative industries on how to start out, dealing with the ups and downs of the industry and above all how important having management is for an artist.
