There’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes in the music industry, much of it goes unnoticed as people work tirelessly to keep the industry booming and business flowing from the performers on stage through to the companies that promote and provide services to fans or artists. You must have heard the age-old saying of “it’s not what you know, but who you know”, and although you still do need to have skills and knowledge to make a lasting career, you can never have too many connections.
One person that is definitely worth being aware of is Rowena Morgan who runs a regular Musical Geisha Networking event for the music industry. These events are a place where creative talents and business minds can come together and make those worthwhile connections.
The Music Gateway team have been along to a number of them and have connected with passionate, talented and experienced people within their fields. The events are notorious for their relaxed vibe and pep talk at the beginning by Rowena to motivate you to walk up to strangers and introduce yourself. Much like Music Gateway helps you connect with a producer to hire, sign the next top artist, or collaborate with songwriters, you can find the same things at these events. It’s all about taking advantage of opportunities.
You will always recognise Rowena by the cowgirl hat and she is on hand to help with any introductions. It’s all about swapping those business cards and making those business connections to further your career or your business.
Make sure you keep an eye out for any future events she's holding so as not to miss out on these invaluable opportunities. You can follow her movements on Twitter @TheWelshHoney
