KEYNOTE: Nabil Ayers in Conversation With Andy Langer

Mar 17, 2022

1:00pm – 2:00pm CT

The Creative Pivot  This wide-ranging conversation between Beggars Group US President and author Nabil Ayers and longtime Austin music journalist Andy Langer explores how creativity flows across different mediums. If you've achieved expertise in one creative endeavor, how do you best apply that knowledge to a slightly different landscape? Who are the best role models for this kind of cross-platform excellence, and what are the biggest mistakes to avoid when undertaking a professional pivot? As a longtime label executive, musician and writer, Ayers will frame his thoughts in the context of his memoir "My Life in the Sunshine," due out in June 2022.
