The Music Industry's Power 15

Young Music Boss presents ‘Meritocracy’ quarterly dinner series, in partnership with UK Music. Meritocracy is an exclusive music industry dinner networking event for young music industry professionals (under 30) to get together and disseminate innovative ideas. At the heart of 'Meritocracy’ is the realisation that young music industry professionals, particularly those in non-traditional roles, are often excluded from shaping the narratives and infrastructure of the music business. Meritocracy will present a unique opportunity to engage these young people, creating the perfect climate for diversity and inclusion.
Each dinner event will host a keynote topic from a leading industry head. For its first instalment Meritocracy focused on the issue of diversity with Keith Harris OBE (Manager to Stevie Wonder, worked with the likes of Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye and the Supremes).

Attendees are carefully selected based on merit, outstanding achievement and influence across a particular demographic.

The inaugural meritocracy dinner took place on the 5th October 2016 at Century Club , the next dinner will take place in February 2017.
