About The Event

We are thrilled to share with you the next speaker in our “E2E Unfiltered” series – the insightful Will Page, former Chief Economist of Spotify and a pioneer of Rockonomics in discussion with Lord Vaizey, former Minister for Culture, Communications, and Creative Industries.

This event will take place on Tuesday the 30th of March at 6pm, two days before the launch of Will’s book – “Tarzan Economics: Eight Principles for Pivoting through Disruption” which provides an essential framework for any individual, organisation, or business which seeks to survive and thrive in the current economic turmoil, drawing upon lessons from major corporates such as Starbucks and Tupperware. As former Chief Economist of Spotify, Will has a wealth of experience dealing with disruption within the music industry and played an instrumental role in the development of the music streaming.

Will Page is a Visiting Fellow at the London School of Economics, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and a non-executive director for “SoundVault Ltd.,” a music licensing and royalty tracking platform.  Will’s observations about the music industry are featured frequently in Billboard, The Economist, and the Financial Times.

In his role as digital minister, Ed was responsible for the roll out of the successful rural broadband programme to more than 4 million homes, the introduction of 4G, and tax credits for film, television, animation and video games, which have helped make the creative industries the fastest growing part of the UK economy.

In addition, he played a key role in putting coding in the national curriculum for schools, and in attracting inward investment to the UK tech economy. Ed also helped persuade Lucas Films to make the new Star Wars in the UK, and received an on-screen credit in the first film of the series.

Ed published the first White Paper on Culture in the UK for 50 years.

In the private sector, Ed is an executive-in-residence at LionTree, the leading global M&A advisory firm specialising in TMT with offices in New York, San Francisco, London and Paris. Ed also on the Technology Media and Telecoms advisory board of FTI consulting.
