Clearly Competent: Do you really have what it takes?

Presented by Keiron Lyn | Often we are intrinsically aware of our artistic interests/abilities and attempt to jump full speed ahead right into the pool. Many of us don’t recognize the importance of knowing what we’re getting into before we make that leap! This workshop will give participants a clear picture of the basic skills, processes and personal characteristics required to represent and advocate for themselves as independent artists. Participants will also have the opportunity for a brief Q&A with an artists’ manager currently working within the industry. Although the workshop will concentrate on a music industry model, the concepts demonstrated are relevant and applicable to independent artists of any genre who are seeking information on self management.
