In 2010 we held our third Women in Music and Entertainment event, and were thrilled to have Jeannette Lee, founder of Rough Trade, and Maria Kempinska, founder of Jongleurs, amongst our speakers. You can watch the videos here.
Alison Wenham and sponsors David Worthington
Opening addresses from AIM’s Alison Wenham and sponsors David Worthington (National Skills Academy for Creative & Cultural) and Javier Lopez (Midem).
Rough Trade – Jeannette Lee and Geoff Travis
An interview with founders of Rough Trade – Jeannette Lee and Geoff Travis. Jeannette speaks publicly for the first time about her role in establishing the company and being a woman in the music industry.
Women in Independent Music – Panel Discussion
In recent years AIM’s Board of Directors, voted for by the membership, has evolved from an all male group to a more diverse and representative collection of music industry entrepreneurs, including 4 women. How has this reinvigorated the Board and impacted on AIM and the independent music sector as a whole? Could all companies and organisations benefit from moving away from the all-male look?
Speakers include: Julie Weir – Visible Noise, Remi Harris, AIM, Kerry Harvey-Piper- Red Grape Records, Doug D’Arcy- Songlines and Alison Wenham – AIM.
Maria Kempinska – Jongleurs
The event closed with a lively speech from maria Kempinska, founder of comedy and music empire Jongleurs.
