Management

English spoken

This talk will discuss the importance of staying in control of both your career trajectory and your company as an artist. In reality a lot of people supporting the artist are actively chasing information and managing day to day tasks, taking away the focus on the things that actually have an impact for an artist's career.
ABOSS is already helping more than 15.000 users in over 45 countries to bring back focus on career development and growth. We’ll share our experiences and the solutions that we’ve learned along the way these last 5 years.
