Today marks exactly one year since I hosted (and organised) my first live #GetInTheGame event.
The sold-out seminar featured a line-up of brilliant women I’m honoured to call my dear friends, each of them with acclaimed careers in the music and entertainment industries.
And in the spirit of true sisterhood, Lani Richmond (artist manager, Aloe Blacc), Eb Jones (then Head of Social & Influencer Strategy, WNBA), Sherin Moustafa (then artist manager, Becky G) and Prinnie Stevens (performer) immediately said they would do the event with less than two week’s notice. When I have a bright idea, I like to execute it as soon as possible!
This particular experience was so exhilarating and successful that it lead me to create Higher Ground Consulting Agency mid last year, and focus on the professional development of local artists and creatives from First Nations and CaLD talent.
I spoke with each woman in-depth about their unique journeys, with our Australian-born panelists providing particular inspiration to the sold-out audience. As musicians, journalists, managers and executives, we provided a powerful look at the spectrum of vocations available to those who aspire to work in showbiz. We also encouraged those in the audience from marginalised backgrounds to keep dreaming, and make those dreams BIG.
Special thanks to my husband Duane Jordan, my amazing right-hand Erika Medina, plus the indomitable Milly Petriella (head of artist relations, APRA AMCOS) for generously sharing her pearls of wisdom on the day.
