Liam states, ‘I am always striving to find a position I can add value and bring something to the table. Being educated in the field of production I have a great understanding of studio workflow - the booking process of artists and studio time. Having producing myself in studios and with a working knowledge of such studios as Metropolis, I have valuable insight into studio operation and project production. Having taken part in a weekly Saturday night show on Kane FM, I understand about broadcasting live shows and interacting with the public over live chat and video streams. When I read through the NEM vision and achievements and it was great to associate with the NEM passion and quality which this business offers its clients across many different aspects of entertainment and business. I am delighted to join the NEM team.’
