Last week I was fortunate enough to attend the first Universal music 'Utalk' in Scotland on behalf of the Strathclyde Telegraph. Those on the panel were Jim Chancellor - MD Fiction Records, Steve Warby - Label Manager Ficiton Records, Thom Powers and Aaron Short - The Naked and Famous and Universal Music Staff: Selina Webb - communications director, Morna Cook - director of human resources and Mike Seymour - head of communications.
It was a fantastic experience and chance to network. Not only that but I gained some invaluable insider knowledge on the music business and then was lucky enough to be offered the chance to write a piece for the Umusic blog!
Due to the nature of the event the piece is very factual but hopefully interesting too,
