During his talk, Ivor will discuss his experiences as former CEO of Warner/Gallo Music Group and the ex-chairman of the Record Industry of South Africa.

 

Ivor spent 40 years in the music industry before retiring in 2008. During his 40 years with the Gallo Music Group, he was involved in all aspects of the music and entertainment industry, both locally and internationally - from arranging recordings to production, licencing product, marketing and publishing.

 

Because of his love for local music, he loved visiting townships scouting for artists with his good friend West Nkosi. It was West Nkosi who introduced him to Joseph Shabalala of Ladysmith Black Mambazo.

 

Some of Ivor's career highlights include:

  • Putting musicians together for the Graceland album with Paul Simon
  • Organising the Midem opening night concern in Cannes France in 1995 to welcome back South Africa after its isolation
  • Receiving the international awards from MCA USA 20th Century USA and Delphine France
  • In 2008, being honoured at a dinner in Midem International Music Convention in France for his contribution to the music industry.
