Kristy Diaz in conversation with Steve Lawson

I’ve been working with Birmingham City University’s School of Media department for a few years now, usually as a panel member assessing their Music Industries students presentations on setting up record labels and PR companies.

At the end of last year, I was invited to participate in a conversation with musician Steve Lawson for a guest lecture, focusing on creative entrepreneurship and innovation. We managed to get through quite a lot more than that – our respective career journeys, the importance of mission and integrity, funding models, social enterprise, record labels and DIY culture. However, as is often the case, there is never enough time, so we’re hoping to do an extended version in the future.
