We’ve launched a series of free online webinars to support musicians and music professionals during COVID-19, hosted by Remi Harris MBE.
Taking place every Thursday lunchtime over the next four weeks, the sessions will cover a range of topics including getting to grips with emergency support packages, replanning your finances and how to promote yourself during this uncertain time.
Remi has 20 years’ experience working across the music & creative industries as a senior manager, trainer, facilitator, coach and business adviser in the UK and internationally. Over the weeks she’ll be joined by accountant and business consultant Shim Offor, creative industries coach Tamara Gal-On and Communications and PR executive Adam Webb.
All sessions will take place on Zoom. If you’d like to join us, please register by clicking the links below. Here is the full schedule…
#1 Emergency support and new funding
