Paul Bonham (Music Managers Forum)

Paul is Professional Development Director at the Music Manager Forum, the world’s largest organisation of music managers. He leads on the ground-breaking Music Managers Accelerator supported by YouTube Music and other skills development initatives.

Accelerator is the world’s first independent funding and professional development programme designed solely for artist, songwriter and producer managers.

Paul has a background in public funding, diversity and inclusion from his roles at Arts Council England and Attitude is Everything. His entry into the music industry began mucking out the barn and booking bands in the early days of the then community-run Truck Festival before going on to manage a number of major label and indie acts.
