ICMP recently hosted a fascinating and exclusive interactive panel discussion focused on ‘How to Build Your Online Profile’ at Tileyard Studios. The event, organised by ICMP’s industry liaison and careers department, featured guest panellists Simon Bush (UK Head of Social, Weller Media Agency) and Alice Beal (Label Manager, Insanity Records/Sony Music) in discussion with Dave Roberts (Industry Liaison Executive, ICMP).
About the guests
Simon Bush has extensive experience developing and implementing creative social media strategies for clients including artists from Syco, Columbia, RCA, Island and Virgin and acts such as 5 Seconds of Summer, Olly Murs and Clean Bandit. Alice Beal has previously worked with artists including Lady Gaga, James Bay and Take That as Marketing Manager at Virgin EMI and within her current role at Insanity had a recent number 1 album for Craig David.
This session was of course very well attended by ICMP students and alumni who relished the unique opportunity to ask their questions directly to industry professionals and receive advice across a range of subjects, including how to use social media effectively and building a digital marketing strategy.
