💥 THIS WEEK'S SPEAKER:
This week, we have a special edition for you - inviting on only one guest to delve deeper - discussing the ins and out of his role at the NTIA and his perspective on where we now find ourselves...
If you'd like to pose a question to Michael Kill, please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
🔊 MICHAEL KILL (DIRECTOR, NIGHT TIME INDUSTRIES ASSOCIATION)
"With several decades of experience working within independent, corporate and public sector environments at executive level, I specialise in Marketing, Operations, Licensing, Logistics and System Implementation. With significant senior management roles within Luminar Leisure Plc, The Drinks Group and the University of East Anglia and now as the Chief Executive of the Night Time Industries Association have been exposed to a considerable range of businesses within the night time economy business sector.
I have been involved within many high level initiatives both within local and national government, alongside key stakeholders. Many of my roles within this industry have involved the facilitation of best practise for independants and multi site operators of venues, bars and pubs, with more recent experiences working very closely with festivals and live venues in shaping operational efficiencies and best practise on a regional level in conjunction with the Police and Local Authorities.
Within my role as Commercial Director at the University of East Anglia I was seconded to the Central Office of National Union of Students (NUS) where I was responsible for the restructuring of their Procurement Strategy for all licensed premises for their University retail sites across the country.
I have been responsible for several multi business procurement contracts with international retail suppliers which have generated circa £50M plus in listing merchandise and retrospective agreements. I have also been fundamental to the roll out of a national music event strategy for the largest late night entertainment multi venue operator in Europe.
I have worked closely with a considerable number of artists and music brands in developing bespoke shows for both stand alone events and larger scale festivals across the UK and still maintain a strong relationship and excellent reputation within the industry as an operator, promoter and procurement specialist." Michael Kill, NTIA
💥 LAST WEEK'S SPEAKERS:
🔊 EVIE VIZOR
Promoter, DJ, Music Producer, Label manager and all-rounder in event production. Evie Vizor established Lemtek in 2012 with the aim to create a platform to put on regular events which would both be inclusive for everyone, also supporting independent charities, with the intention of bringing like minded people together to celebrate and enjoy music. No egos, all fun encouraging voluntary donations, and minimising risk of criminalisation through legal events. Lemtek has since also evolved into a digital label, giving a platform to artists spanning the globe.
🔊 MISTA TRICK
Promoter, Producer, DJ, live bands...all things Swing & Bass. Richard has ran nights his whole life and also been very involved in radio since launching a pirate station at the age of 16!

He's currently living in Bristol & focusing on finishing his debut album...
🔊 RICK JENSEN
Rick is the founder and promoter of SKRONK - an experimental music and performance event that has been running since May 2016. We produce several shows per month featuring improv, dance, electronics and audio-visuals.
