Here’s what people say about Tess Taylor and her Career Strategy Sessions:
Having co-founded a large networking group for the tech world in Denver, Integrated Alliances, I know what a huge undertaking you have chosen to accept. I am in awe of the organization you have developed to date, and impressed with the depth and commitment of the membership. NARIP is like a worldwide fraternity/sorority comprised of outrageously talented individuals from all aspects of the music business who generously share their knowledge, experience and support with each other. These historically cloistered veterans openly support their peers, no matter what level those peers may have achieved so far, or what help, skills or contacts they seek . My hat’s off to you, and Mary Bee, and now Vince for the wonderful job you have done and continue to do. Your impressive leadership skills enable you to do an amazing job of making sure everyone stays focused and to the point at every NARIP event. You make a pretty darned good drill sergeant in a meeting environment. Thank you for all you do—Rock Garden Conspiracy has found a home at NARIP. Sincerely,
Ed Cohen & Rick Tucker - Rock Garden Conspiracy, LLC
Just wanted share how invaluable NARIP has been to me as a practicing attorney in Georgia! Not only have I learned and gained great insight into the legal complexities surrounding the music business, but also great clients and other important contacts! The networking opportunities are endless! I really appreciate what NARIP does for the growing and ever-expanding music industry here in Georgia and will be a lifelong member! Thanks!
