10 Sites, Services & People to kick-start your 2012.
It was tremendous to meet so many artists at the APRA Connecting Members UK meeting in London on December 14th. Thanks to those brave souls who came out in less than plesant weather – even for the UK – to hear myself and the other speakers.
I almost managed to keep to my alloted time. I’m sure APRA’s UK rep Cathi Ogden forgave me for running over time as I was so keen to ensure the presentation was packed with as much useful info as possible. If you happen to be an Australian music artist working in the UK or Europe and you’ve not connected with Cathi you should sort that out. Cathi is such a great champion for Australian music in this part of the world. She can give no end of assistance with making sure you’re live performance reports get posted – so that you get paid – and she has a wealth of contacts.
So, here is the presentation I gave last night. I’ve posted it here as it was a bit of a challange making notes in such a short space of time.

10 Sites, Services & People to kick-start your 2012.
I’m heading tonight to the APRA Connecting Members presentation with what I hope will be one of the most useful presentations I have ever given. I’ve challenged myself to present 10 things that APRA artists can use in 2012 to give their careers a boost – in only 10 minutes.
Of course presenting all these Websites, Music Services and People in only 10 minutes will only give me a chance to glance across the value that these services offer and will give any of you attending a challenge in the note taking stakes.
But fear not my friends. I’ll be posting my slides here for you from late tonight so that you can review my suggestions.
If you are attending the event be sure to come say hello and head over to my Facebook page and say hi by hitting the Like button.
See you tonight!
