Olivia Brown has taken up the position of Director, London Office at WildKat PR.  Previously Head of Creative Strategy & Marketing, Olivia will continue to be responsible for creative strategy at WildKat, exploring and implementing new services, and running the branding and social media strands of the company.

Her new role will also entail overseeing all business here in the UK and Ireland, and working with Carolin Denz (Director, Berlin Office) to develop and progress the WildKat brand, as well as working with the Founder, Kathleen Alder, to adapt WildKat to our ever-changing industry.

Kathleen Alder, Founder of WildKat PR commented: “It is with great delight that we announce the promotion of Olivia Brown to Director, London Office. Olivia has always been a dedicated and hardworking member of the WildKat PR team and has displayed a great deal of passion to the field of music and performing arts. Olivia first joined us in her ‘year in industry’ while studying at the University of Leeds, and after joining the London office as a full-time member of staff has overseen the expansion of our traditional services such as PR, marketing and social media to include more creative services such as branding, surveys and a more tailored approach to our services.

“Olivia has a proven track record of team leadership and a determination to provide the best possible service for our extensive client roster, and I am excited to see where she will lead the London office in the future. Olivia’s youth, talent and enthusiasm befits the overall company ethos and she will join myself and our Berlin Director Carolin Denz in running the company overall.”

Olivia commented: “It’s been an incredibly exciting and rewarding adventure to experience WildKat transform in the past 5 years, from when I started as an intern to the newly created position that I began last year.

“I am incredibly grateful to Kat for providing me with the structure and support to confidently lead the company from within, which is often very rare in our industry. Meanwhile, Kat continues to champion the young leaders of the classical music industry, regardless of age, gender, or background. As Director, London Office, I look forward to further leading the company into exciting new territories, both through anticipating the future of the industry and reacting to it, and also overseeing our expansion into the U.S. and France in 2018.”

WildKat PR is very pleased to be working with composer and pianist Andrew James Johnson on his upcoming album release and concert, following the launch of his new brand.

Olivia Brown, Head of Creative Strategy and Marketing, says: “Working alongside our in-house design team classicalmusicdesign, WildKat has created a brand and visual identity for Andrew that truly represents both his bold, friendly personality and his enchanting yet sensitive compositions. We’re very much looking forward to continuing our collaboration, and sharing Andrew’s debut album with the press and music industry.”

Andrew is a composer and pianist who grew up in Birmingham, England, and despite having no formal training on the piano in his childhood, immersed himself in the works of Beethoven, Schumann and Chopin. After his parents agreed to pay for lessons, Andrew’s eagerness and innate musicality developed rapidly into a passion for piano performance, before he moved onto composition.

Andrew began to draw upon a combination of classical training and contemporary influences, completing a BA in Composition at the London College of Music.  His compositional style combines rich harmonic language with expansive pianistic techniques, revealing the influence of the Romantic-era composers that so inspired him in his youth.

In the years that followed his graduation from the LCM, Andrew undertook commissions for film, television and theatre. Credits include televised advertisements for HSBC and Timotei. Andrew’s compositions take inspiration from everyday life, and his creative process makes use of the full tonal range of the keyboard, drawing on influences from his role models Max Richter and Philip Glass.

We are thrilled to be working with Andrew on his debut album release ‘Winter’s Heart’, due for release in November 2017.

Unser Berliner WildKat PR Team bietet als erste PR-Agentur ab dem 8. Juli in unserem Büro kostenlose 20-minütige Beratungen an. Jeden zweiten Freitagnachmittag werden bei den Open Sessions über die verschiedensten Bereiche der Profil- und Öffentlichkeitsarbeit gesprochen. Hierzu gehören neben der Pressearbeit unter anderem Social Media, Event- und Konzertmanagement, Marketing, kreative Kampagnen und vieles mehr. Da dieses Konzept schon seit mehreren Jahren im Londoner Büro für Erfolg sorgt, kommt es nun offiziell nach Berlin.

„Wir wollen damit Studenten, professionellen Musikern und Organisationen einen Einblick in unsere Arbeit und unseren Ethos geben. Es geht uns auch darum, der Branche etwas zurück zu geben, ohne dabei an Profit zu denken, was in Ergänzung dazu im Einklang mit dem Fellowship-Stipendium steht, das wir letztes Jahr ins Leben gerufen haben“, so Kathleen Alder, Gründerin und CEO von WildKat.  

Die Open Sessions sollen all diejenigen ansprechen, die sich für klassische Musik interessieren und den Wunsch haben, sich weiterzubilden oder ihre Karriere voranzutreiben. In einer ruhigen Atmosphäre haben sie die Möglichkeit, individuelle Fragen beantwortet zu bekommen, Lösungsansätze für Probleme gemeinsam zu erarbeiten oder einfach über ihre musikalischen Interessen zu sprechen. Ausgebildete Musiker und Studenten, aber auch Labels und Managements sind herzlich in das Berliner Büro eingeladen.

Die 20-minütige Beratung kann ganz einfach hier unter Angabe des Namens, der gewünschten Uhrzeit und eines Interessensschwerpunktes gebucht werden.

Wir freuen uns auf Dich!

WildKat PR is proud and thrilled to announce that we have been invited to lecture to the talented students of The Juilliard School over two sessions. We will be speaking about many aspects of the industry such as marketing, PR, concerts, management, social media, events, budgeting, branding, photography and websites and offering general advice on how to be a prominent and successful 21st-century artist.

The industry can be a daunting start to a young graduate and WildKat PR is here to help bridge the gap between being a student and a professional. After forging a strong relationship with the Royal Academy of Music in London and speaking about similar topics, we are excited to be expanding this service in New York, building on our ongoing presence in the American market, helping to breed the next generation of artists.

 

For further information on how we can help you or if you wanted to know more about our work in New York and at Juilliard, feel free to email fleur@wildkatpr.com
