TRUTH #1: I USED TO BE AFRAID OF PUBLIC SPEAKING

Ever since childhood I had a nervous stutter and hated the sound of my own voice. Overcoming my own confidence issues empowers me to help others to do the same too.

TRUTH #2: I've BEEN FIRED FROM FOUR 9 TO 5 JOBS

Working for music clients I didn't believe in, meant that I couldn't reach my full potential. As long as I can see the passion in your eyes, I'll be inspired to help you.

TRUTH #3: accidentally losing £400 on GooGLE ADS WAS ONE OF THE BEST LESSONS EVER

I learnt that rushing into adverts without strategy, knowledge or artistic vision leads nowhere. On the plus side; I've screwed up - so you don't have to! Let me teach you the shortcuts that I learn the hard way.

EXPERIENCES

In the past 8 years, I've been lucky enough to collaborate with some amazing companies:

  • Ministry of Sound & Notting Hill Arts Club
  • GRM Daily & SB.TV
  • Sony Music & Black Butter Records
  • Disrupt Marketing & a couple of digital agencies
  • BBC 1Xtra Live Manchester, BBC Introducing Amplify '17 & BBC Asian Network
 

MOTIVATION

At various points across the last eight years, I grew two of my own businesses Beatz Magazine (2009-2012) and Future Beats Records (2014 - 2017) to a combined total over 100,000 social media fans.

After a lot of personal growth, I arrived at the realisation to  tie two of my biggest passions together (Music & Social Media) and give back to help others build their own brands.
