Testimonials

“Howard is a really creative thinker and a fascinating orator. When University of Westminster needed an expert to talk on the Future of the Music Business we engaged Howard. His lecture and abundant notes really stimulated the large group of Masters level Music Business Management mature students. Howard is great!”

Graham Ball, Course Leader
MA Music Business Management, University of Westminster, London

“It was a pleasure working with Howard at the V&A where him and his team delivered 10 workshops over 5 days. In the planning stage they were responsive and professional, and during the week the team of facilitators were fantastic.

I would highly recommend them in the future!”
