Entertainment Management on a Graduated Level

I have over twenty years in the entertainment industry as a performer, manager, and venue booker.  While working, I was also in school. I graduated class valedictorian, earning a 4.0, with an undergraduate degree in music business management.  I supplemented that education with my MBA where I focused on marketing analytics and consumer behavior, also graduating class valedictorian with a perfect 4.0.

 

I apply the skills I learned on the road, in the books, running my own company, working as a store mentor with Apple, and managing over 260 entertainment shifts monthly across three gaming properties in two states to analyze your products, processes, and people. From there, we define a plan of attack and go after those results.

Consulting for entertainment-focused businesses large and small.

For venues, I offer market alignment, customer service, consumer behavior, stage and performer presentation, and management analysis. Services range from third-party reporting to interim management.

 

*****

For artists, I offer unbiased analysis regarding the act’s market worthiness, stage presence, marketing strategies, management, and general counsel on how to navigate the recording industry.

Services Include:

Merger & Acquisition Analysis

The decision to marge brands or acquire another organization should not be taken lightly.

I cut through the puffery when another organization wants your money or support. I act as an unbiased resource who looks at the entire picture including a deep-dive into their financials, market position, vision, and strategy. I investigate their employees, partners, and customers to find out how they handle business. Then, I weigh those metrics against the potential returns for your brand and present them in an in-depth report.

Business, RFP, and Marketing Plan Development

Most people hate drafting business plans. Well, I am not most people. I enjoy putting vision to paper.

I work closely with you to analyze your vision and resources. Then we forecast how that vision can materialize over the next three months to thirty-years in a document that will help you secure the funding and partners to make it happen.

Interim Management

If you are having trouble finding competent leadership to operate your entertainment space, we should talk.

I have over twenty years in the entertainment industry as a performer, educator, booking agent, and manager. Combine that real-world experience with my theoretical training that includes a BS in Music Business and an MBA with studies in Consumer Behavior, Marketing Analytics, Finance, and Operations and you get the full leadership package that gets results.

Entertainment Strategy Development

I apply the science of business management to help you get results for your venue using various proven entertainment strategies.

No, I don't "book bands," but I do have the connections up to the national level as well as production and FOH resources to make that happen. I thoroughly analyze your venue space, budget, market, operations, and vision to put in place entertainment offerings that increase ROI and craft a competitive advantage in any location.

Why You May Need an Entertainment Business Consultant.

Business management breaks down to three fundamental P’s: (1) Product; (2) Processes; (3) People. When one of these elements is "out-of-whack," everything is thrown off. Efficiency slides, costs rise, profits erode, and companies die. This is true in all industries.

 

The business consultant helps identify where the problems lie, outlines steps to fix them, and remains with your team as they march onwards towards success.

 

_______________

Entertainment ventures including venues, festivals, casinos, cruise ships, hotels, and amusement parks face similar challenges in regards to their products, processes, and people.

However, the entertainment industry is unique, to say the least. For one, some of the people (the artists) are also the product. Leaving owners to manage a powerful stakeholder group that is emotionally connected to their service.

 

Second, the medium (the performance) is highly qualitative. Everyone has their favorite band and the majority believe their choice would “sell out” the room every time. Unfortunately, this is not the case and when mismanaged can alienate both customers and employees.

 

Third, entertainment ventures typically find success as the size of the crowd grows. This introduces countless “stressors” to the work environment such as increased volume levels and reduced personal space. To succeed, management must be expert motivators and have rock solid processes in place that are scalable to accommodate their team’s needs as the crowd grows.

 

Finally, the business must be on top of national and local entertainment trends and have the necessary connections to facilitate those demands at any level of the game.
