THE 2018 OFFICIAL NZ MUSIC MONTH SUMMIT ANNOUNCE SPEED NETWORKING SESSIONS

The Official Music Month Summit is excited to announce the addition of Speed Networking Sessions, giving attendees the opportunity to meet some of the Summit speakers face to face.

There will be two one hour Speed Networking sessions held during the day with each Speed Networking appointment 8 mins each. These spots will get booked up, so be in quick to ensure you don’t miss out. 
 
Held at the Herald Theatre in the Aotea Centre in Auckland, and presented by the NZ Music Managers Forum, NZ Music Commission, APRA AMCOS, NZ On Air and Recorded Music NZ, the Summit features a stellar line up of music industry professionals and speakers, who will challenge and create thought-provoking conversation around some of the industry issues that have been highlighted in the past twelve months.
 
The day comprises of four sessions, with four speakers for each topic and an open Q&A after each session, and now face to face Speed Networking opportunities with most of the speakers.

The topics of discussion are:

WOMEN IN MUSIC                                                                                                                                                                         

With the worldwide explosion of #MeToo and the gender pay gap revelations, gender inequality has been a hot topic this year across all industries.  Four women from different areas within Music Industry will talk about their experiences.

DIVERSITY IN MUSIC 

Is there racial and LGBTQ discrimination within the music industry? Four artists share their experiences and point of view drawing from their individual journeys.

WELLBEING 

Health and wellbeing are fundamental to music-making at all levels, but also across all areas of the industry – management, production, crew.  Four speakers from different corners of the Music Industry share their stories. 

REGIONAL ISOLATION 
 
Even though NZ is a small country, it is amazing how being a few miles away from the main hubs can create a feeling of disconnection from the industry. Four influential execs discuss their challenges and achievements in creating active and viable regional hubs.
