Bernhard Kerres will lead 12 webinars on career management and entrepreneurship for classical musicians. The webinars are based on Bettina Mehne’s and his book, Be Your Own Manager. The webinars are a good opportunity for you to boost your career and not only your immune system during this challenging times.
The webinars will always be held on Mondays at 6 pm CEST (Vienna, Austria Time) starting on Monday, July 6th, 2020. You can join also later classes if you missed the first few ones. The dates are: July 6th, July 13th, July 20th, July 27th, August 3rd, August 10th, August 17th, August 24th, August 31st, September 7th, September 14th, and September 21st.
Each webinar will last between 60 to 120 minutes. The webinars will be held in English. All webinars will be online hosted on Zoom. You will get the respective link a few days before we start the course. All webinars will be recorded. The recording will only be made available to participants for their own learning and review.
The classes will address:
The classes will be a mixture of lecture, case studies, break out sessions, and workshop. You have the opportunity to ask questions, discuss your own situation, and get feedback on your career and the next steps you could take.
An important part of the course is working together in study groups. You will be assigned to a study group and get a mentor for your study group. You will be expected to do individual homework as well as group work. This will include re-writing your bio, working out a sales plan, feedback on cold calling and more.
The places are limited to ensure that we have a good class interaction.
As part of the Be Your Own Manager family you are invited to regular guest lectures free of charge. These are held by leaders in classical music and give you the opportunity to ask questions and get inside views. Furthermore you are becoming part of our growing family with a dedicated space for interaction on Slack, a modern chat, messenger, and communication tool. It is a great way to exchange ideas, views, and opportunities with each other. This space is reserved for participants and alumni of the Be Your Own Manager courses.
Understanding the financial pressure many artists are currently under, we offer these webinars on a Pay-As-You-Can scheme. The normal price would be EUR 199 for all 12 webinars. We ask you for a minimum contribution at a price of one cappuccino per webinar. Should you find that difficult to pay, please contact us with alternative compensation ideas.
