She has experience working in numerous roles, including serving as a BBC Producer where she worked on numerous radios shows including The Gospel Train and the Deniece Williams Show. Juliet will talk about the Official Christian and Gospel Music charts and how artists can get a chart placing. She’ll also be talking about new plans to launch a live gospel music circuit.
Aside from Paulette Long OBE and Juliet Fletcher sharing their insights about music ministry and media, the other topic that will be featured at this Pathways to Music Ministry success seminar is how to plan, organise, fund and promote your event.
Events do play a key role in helping artists to:
* develop their stagecraft,
* reach new audiences,
* raise awareness of their music,
* generate income and
* sell their product.
Roy Francis, who has extensive experience of organising events, featuring both local and international artists will talk about how to plan and organise an event; Marcia Dixon will talk about funding and promoting your event.
The Pathways to Music session about events will teach attendees the ins and outs of organising successful music events that are remembered for all the right reasons.
