A couple of upcoming events involving me:
Eventbrite are putting on a series of events called Britespace which will explore the future of events all next week. The topics include events as revenue streams, future trends, what we can learn from the ice bucket challenge, marketing and more.
I’ll be participating in a talk next Thursday lunchtime called In a digital age, do we still need music promoters? on 42 Dawson St which will be moderated by Laurence Mackin, editor of The Ticket and also features Eoin Cregan from Bodytonic and Ros Madigan of Goldenplec. It’s a free event but registration is required. The entire week’s event’s proceeds will go towards The Dublin Simon Community.
Secondly, the Science Gallery are putting on a series of events called First Up, which will feature talks from people who made their own career happen or who pursued a lifestyle they were interested in. I’ll be speaking on Wednesday December 10th at 1pm in the Trinity Long Room Hub. Registration is required but it is free.
