”Your roundtable was excellent. You moderate incredibly well, hitting the right topical note to open people up and navigating the conversation in a such a way that the debate picks up new facets and features, yet never strays too far from the root – which is artists and getting them paid. Very impressed, indeed. “
Will Page, PRS
