Developing Digital and Creative Industry Business builds on this success and comprises a programme of:

  • One to one support
  • Advice sessions on everything from successful exporting to spot on social media strategies, venture capital investment, support for product and service development
  • Workshops and conferences where businesses taking part can meet international experts and new contacts to take their businesses to the next level in terms of growth and potential revenue

They are inviting applications for the programme and for their next two workshops which are taking place soon:

Just About Managing - Conrad Murray, Manager, SJM Concerts
Tuesday 27th January 6 - 7.30pm, 4th Floor, Central Library, Liverpool

Managing artists is an often thankless and endless task. It is a role that embraces managing the business relationship with the artist and also with all the key stakeholders that surround the artist and assist with their career progression. This session will highlight what it takes to take care of artists in the 21st Century.

Since joining the highly renowned SJM Concerts as Head of Press in 2005, Conrad Murray has gone on to manage artists including The Coral, Paul Heaton, Big Audio Dynamite, Blossoms, The Courteeners and The Stone Roses.

This workshop first took place in October, and we're delighted to invite Conrad back to host it again due to popular demand
