“I joined the NTIA in the immediate aftermath of the tragic enforced closure of The Arches, and joined the board shortly after. It was clear to me that we needed an independent collective voice out-with the mainstream licensed trade associations – an organisation fit for purpose in the 21st century, able to truly represent the interests of the electronic music community in particular, and that of the broader cultural & music led the sector in general. Never has the work of the NTIA been so pressing or so relevant, and never has supported it been so vital!” Mike spent 30+ years in the industry beginning as a DJ and promoter in the mid 80’s before opening trailblazing club ‘Fever’ in Aberdeen in 1989.

Sarah Clover – Barrister

I have worked in the music industry for over 20 years and as an agent for 15 of those years, during this time I have worked with artists such as Pendulum, Chase and Status, Tinie Tempah, Wizkid and Marshmello to name but a few.  In 2012 I started my own agency, Echo location Talent. Echo is a global talent agency that prides itself on not just representing, but also developing artists from right across the musical spectrum to ensure they reach their potential.  The agency and team has grown from strength to strength and recently we have opened an office in Lagos, Nigeria and a sport office in Manchester.   Some noteable achievements during my time as an agent are; the first agent to sell out the O2 arena with a Drum and Bass act, the first and only agent to sell out both the O2 and Wembley with a UK Hip Hop act which I have done twice and the first agent to sell out the O2 arena with an Afrobeats artist.  I am also proud to be a co-creator and co-founder of Afro Nation.  Over the years it has always been a struggle to get the commercial industry to recognise the true value of Afrobeats even though we have been able to sell out prestigious venues such as the Royal Albert Hall and the O2 arena in recent times.  With the success of these shows and the obvious demand, we made the decision to put together our own festival to showcase Afrobeats artists instead of waiting for the industry to wake up.  Afro Nation was a complete success and sold out in a matter of days.  Following on from the success in Portugal, we are excited to have launched Afro Nation Ghana and Afro Nation Puerto Rico plus many more. I feel it is my job and responsibility to help force change and make the global entertainment industry accept new ideas and stakeholders.
