One of UK's foremost record promoters, Tony Michaelides, to speak Nov. 15 at Stetson

Stetson University's School of Business Administration, School of Music and Career Development will present Tony Michaelides, one of the United Kingdom's foremost record promoters, in a special lecture on Tuesday, Nov. 15, 2011, 08:30-09:30 a.m. The event will take place in Rinker Auditorium, in the Lynn Business Center, 345 N. Woodland Blvd, DeLand. It is free and open to public.

Tony Michaelides, who is one of the greatest marketer, mentor, author, radio host and music industry entrepreneur, will share insights and advice from the experiences he has developed over a 37-year long career as an artist, record labels and producers. He has worked with U2, Bob Marley, Whitney Houston, Puff Daddy, Annie Lennox, Elvis Costello and other world-famous musicians.

His outstanding history of working together with a long list of famous musicians provide a colorful background of characters and landscapes. Michaelides' lessons are often distinctly business oriented-the same basic principles learned in business school.
In 1982, he decided to offer his own music promotion company, TMP, after working together with Transatlantic Records, Island Records, Charisma Records and others.
He helped launch careers of bans like The Stone Roses and R.E.M.
Now he is a Florida resident with permanent United States residency, because of his extraordinary abilities and achievement for services to music and the arts, he pursues a career of public speaking and writing. Michaelides' appearance at Stetson is a joint collaboration between the School of Business Administration's endowed Roberson Visiting Executive in Residence Program, the School of Music and Career Development.
