Job Title: Networking Consultant
Company: FM First Monday
Description: FM is a monthly music industry social get together and blog.
We meet on the First Monday of every month (apart from January and August) – hence the name.
It’s not stuffy in any way; no badges or bossy organisers – if it was like that, we wouldn’t come!!
FM is a very relaxed get together with people from the industry, in a bar, all there to meet other people in the industry and possibly do business. And it’s totally free.
So much business is now done by email and online, we wanted to do things on a more personal level. There are also a number of new businesses of 1 or 2 people setting up who enjoy the chance to meet other people from the industry.
We started in March 2007. There have been ad hoc satellite events in Brighton, Liverpool, New York, Latvia and Amsterdam. As of November 2011, there are over 1,100 people on the mailing list and generally the events attract between 40-70 people.
People who come are; MANAGEMENT – LABELS – ARTISTS – PROMOTORS – PUBLISHERS – PRODUCERS – LAWYERS – ACCOUNTANTS – PR’s – PHOTOGRAPHERS – VIDEO PRODUCERS – CHARITIES – TRADE BODIES SUCH AS MMF, BPI, AIM, MPA ETC, UKI TRADE AND INVESTMENT AS WELL AS STUDENTS LOOKING FOR INTERNSHIPS
As well as the monthly get togethers, we also write a blog between events with our take on things that are happening in the industry and a more light hearted look at life in general as well as posting messages on behalf of people on the mailing list looking for jobs, band members and offering deals to other FM members.
You are not bombarded you with endless emails – apart from anything we don’t have the time! FM starts from 6.30pm and runs until people go home – not always early… You can arrive early then go off to a gig or come along after – you don’t need to RSVP – just turn up.
