“The inspirational Industry Takeover events bring relevant industry professionals face-to-face with young people aspiring to develop music industry careers. Universal Music UK has worked with UD for a few years, providing volunteer speakers for panels and one-to-one sessions… it is a fantastic resource and we would be delighted to continue supporting their work.”
