MACS invites you to our Signature Speaker Series with Terry McBride, CEO of Nettwerk Music Group and Founder of YYoga.
Join us for Terry's story on how he got to where he is today, including challenges faced with building both Nettwerk and YYoga.
Terry is the current CEO and one of three founders of the Nettwerk Music Group, which includes Nettwerk Productions (Canada's largest independent record label), Nettwerk Management (artist and producer management), Nettwerk One (publishing), and Artwerks (graphic and fashion design). Founded in Terry's apartment in 1984, Nettwerk has corporate offices in Vancouver, Boston, LA, Nashville, New York, Hamburg and London. Since its inception, Nettwerk has released over 500 different albums and sold over 150 million albums worldwide.
In 2004, Terry stepped onto a yoga mat for the first time by way of recommendation from a friend, and it wasn't long before he realized that yoga offered him more than just a flexible body and mind. Acting on this realization, Terry along with his friend and yoga instructor, Lara Kozan, launched a chain of wellness centres called YYoga. It's Terry's vision for YYoga Studios to evolve into social third spaces, focusing on health and wellness for th ebody, mind, spirit and the community.
At the 2003 Juno Awards, Terry received the Walt Grealis Special Achievement Award, recognizing an outstanding individual who has contributed to the growth and advancement of the Canadian music industry. Terry has also twice been awarded the Pollstar Industry Award for Personal Manager of the year for his work with Sarah McLachlan (1997) and Avril Lavigne / Coldplay (2002).
