11:00AM – 12:15PM – Keynote Speech by Laura Taylor, Sr. Vice President of Operations for Guitar Center.
She's in charge of everything at all of Guitar Center's stores (133!!) except for sales. She rose through the ranks from a store greeter in Hollywood to one of the most powerful women in the music equipment industry.
She knows that shopping for gear can be an uncomfortable (and often patronizing) experience for female musicians. That's all changing.
On Saturday morning MEOW Founder Carla DeSantis Black will interview Laura Taylor - who is coming to Austin ESPECIALLY for this event - about GC’s new Women’s Initiative Program. Don't miss this!!
12:15PM – 1:00PM – Complimentary lunch.
