BMI welcomed Nashville’s newest hires for a young professionals networking breakfast last week in BMI’s Nashville office. The second of three sessions in the Next Big Wave series, attendees of this installation were some of Music Row’s newest rising professionals. The breakfast provided a unique opportunity for the budding tastemakers to connect with other professionals at similar points in their careers. Breakfast sponsor Pinnacle Bank’s David Smith and BMI’s Leslie Roberts shared brief messages of encouragement for “the future of Music Row.”
Designed to forge personal relationships, foster professional connections and inspire growth and creativity within budding careers, each event in the series is specifically tailored to a different group of new arrivals. With three evenings dedicated respectively to songwriters without publishing deals, new music industry hires and songwriters who have recently secured their first publishing deal, attendees have the opportunity to mix, mingle and dine with their peers. BMI’s Creative team is on-hand for a unique opportunity to network and learn more about BMI’s role in their individual careers. The series allows Nashville’s rising talent to create lasting relationships with BMI and beyond for a stronger Music Row community.
