SONY MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT CEO DOUG MORRIS will deliver a keynote interview at MIDEM 2015, being held in CANNES from JUNE 5th-8th. MORRIS will talk about the “Lessons Learned,” sharing his decades of experience in music, creativity, management and business, together with stories that changed the music industry, and how they can now be applied to better understand the challenges that it faces today.
The keynote will take the form of an interview with OXFORD UNIVERSITY CENTRE FOR CORPORATE REPUTATION Dir. RUPERY YOUNGER. The CENTRE is part of OXFORD UNIVERSITY’s SAID BUSINESS SCHOOL. The conversation forms part of MIDEM TALKS, its conference program, and will take place on SATURDAY, JUNE 6th.
“I knew very early that I wanted to spend my life in the music business and be part of the rock culture of that time," said MORRIS. And that is the life I had, managing talent and creativity, leading change in the music business. It is now the right time to talk about the lessons I learned along the way. And I can’t think of a better occasion than MIDEM to share such learning with the global music community.”
Added REED MIDEM Dir./ Music Marketing BRUNO CROLOT: “DOUG MORRIS is an iconic executive within the music ecosystem represented at MIDEM. Over the past decades, he has actively contributed to supporting the industry and shaping solutions to the various challenges that our music business has been going through. We’re thrilled that in addition to sharing the insights gained from his successful career and his broad vision of the music industry, DOUG will inspire the MIDEM audience on how to face change and how to create the business opportunities for tomorrow."
