MGT12: Find Your Champions – Emmanuel Legrand

EEmmanuel Legrand is a London-based freelance journalist, blogger and media consultant, specialising in the entertainment business.

In this interview with Emmanuel, we continued the theme of promoting a musical act in other countries (something covered in the previous episode, with Martin Frascogna), and talked in details on the history and essence of publishing.

Emmanuel has presented one of the most clear and easy to understand explanation of publishing that we have seen so far. In this podcast, Emmanuel also talked on the importance of surrounding yourself with the right people, why you need publishers, and who may be owning you money.

Some of the topics covered in the conversation:
