In this session, Richard will unpack the early days of The Orchard: the challenges he faced throughout the years but saw as an opportunity and the lessons he learned to build The Orchard into a leading distributor for independent music. You’ll leave the session with concrete tips (and stories!) on how to build and scale a business from a concept to reality.
