President & CEO, The All Access Group LLC
Kelli Richards is a seasoned business development exec in digital media -- especially in music tech -- and a “swat team” strategist with a strong proven track record in identifying opportunities and driving a vision to life from concept to execution. She has established long-term trusted relationships with stakeholders across the ecosystem including mainstream talent, content creators, media execs, tech innovators and leaders, brand execs and investors. As a “super connector” she’s curated an enviable network that at best affords her one degree of separation from virtually anyone in the space. Kelli started out as a young A&R exec at EMI Music, and went on to launch and drive Apple’s earliest initiatives in music and entertainment during her lengthy tenure there prior to launching her consulting practice. She’s also been a talent producer on a myriad of award shows and private fundraiser events working with a cross-section of some of the biggest talent on the planet.
A multidisciplinary innovator, she has spent decades envisioning, identifying and unlocking the value of emerging technologies and corresponding new revenue streams for those at the convergence of tech, music and entertainment -- cross-pollinating people and opportunities to create mutual wins. She’s fascinated by people and what they want, need or don't know they need yet. She gets involved with new business models, new innovations and new alliances that create amazing and engaging experiences that inform, entertain, surprise and delight consumers.
Kelli is also a trusted advisor to high achievers, typically out of tech or entertainment who are looking to reinvent themselves around what matters most to them as they contemplate “what’s next.” Last but not least, Kelli holds an MBA — and she's been honored as a “Top 100 Woman of Influence” by the Silicon Valley Business Journal.
Mondo Zoom Conversation: Mondo & CMW Co-Host Be Present Everywhere: Introductions & Connections
5/18/21, 9:00 PM
Join our global town hall as Mondo -- in partnership with Canadian Music Week and LyricFind -- introduces you to the global community of music conferences, trade missions, partners, consultants, organizers and creatives. The panel series, hosted by Robert Singerman, debuted on a Mondo zoom over a year ago at the start of the pandemic and has since brought hundreds of international colleagues and thousands of new friends together to speak at virtual conferences from NYC and Toronto to Kenya, Rio & LA, with other virtual forays to & from dozens of cities and countries spanning the globe to Be Present Everywhere (while staying home). Meet these global specialists w/o the flights, hotels, per-diems, carbon, $$ and family costs. Many thousands of new music community connections have already been made and many more will be made here, through active chats, shared contacts, new business introductions, collaborations and experiential education. It's a lot of fun for all, like a great Mondo/CMW/LyricFind conference party. Thanks much to the amazing speakers joining and all participants.
