15:06:34 From Michael Price : Andy, Lester – could you choose ‘all panelists & attendees’ above where you type …
15:07:28 From Michael Blainey : Mine didn’t respond. Probably saw a pic of me!
15:08:12 From Simon Woodgate : Hi Danai Kokogia if you are here?
15:09:01 From Michael McEvoy To All Panelists : Hi. Michael McEvoy here – saying hi!
15:09:46 From Matthew Jones : We all owe you all a drink. Thank you!

15:11:35 From Esmeralda Conde Ruiz : Great idea Nainita!
15:12:00 From Michael Price : I’ll ask, Nainita
15:12:06 From Toby Jarvis : Yes, let’s all see who we’re paired with
15:12:33 From Tom Schipper : maybe
15:12:36 From Elliot Nicklin : It’s a little comparative
15:12:43 From Elliot Nicklin : What he said.
15:12:46 From dov waterman : I think thats right
15:12:47 From Zinovia Arvanitidi : i agree with Michael
15:12:51 From Simon Woodgate : Hey Michael Blainey – we both scored films for Ben Gregor…
15:12:58 From Josh Brown : How about just names and contacts if people are happy with it? So there is a community sort of thing
15:13:15 From Michael Blainey : Hi Simon, which one?
15:13:21 From Vikki Flawith : aren’t we all in the facebook group, as a community sort of thing?
15:13:24 From Matthew Whiteside : I agree with Michael, but would a list of everyone involved (not the pairs just individual names)?
15:13:28 From Tom Schipper : Maybe some kind of shared FB group or discord server?
15:13:45 From Simon Woodgate : I did All Stars 3D
15:13:51 From Marco Caricola : Discord would be grand, hate fb but can get back to it 🙂
15:14:06 From Michael Blainey : Excellent. Nice to meet you!
15:14:10 From Simon Woodgate : 🙂
15:14:16 From Benjamin Symons : Discord works for me well too
15:14:32 From Benn Casile : discord is great
15:14:40 From Zinovia Arvanitidi : a new fb group dedicated to the mentorship scheme perhaps?
15:14:43 From Michael Blainey : We’ve both been subject to Gregorphors in feedback…
15:14:47 From Alessandro Mastroianni : Discord is great buy maybe not has widely known
15:14:49 From Eric James : Discord over FB any day
15:14:59 From Alessandro Mastroianni : *not as widely
15:15:00 From Benjamin Symons : If you need help with Discord I’ve set up my own server
15:15:01 From Simon Woodgate : haha gregophors indeed
15:15:02 From Bartosz Szafranski : Also +1 for Discord, use it anyway
15:15:06 From Nick Phillips : Slack can work well
15:15:13 From Vikki Flawith : I’m on Discord too
15:15:42 From Justine Barker : On previous mentoring schemes I’ve been involved with Mentors in touch in a group and mentees in a group together so peers can help with getting best from it.
15:16:03 From Michael Price : Justine – that’s an interesting idea
15:16:05 From Harry Peat : That sounds great Justine
15:16:11 From Daisy Coole : That’s a great idea, Justine
15:16:21 From Benjamin Symons : Yeah Justine. On Discord we can set up channels with access for specific roles so a Mentor chat, Mentee chat, everyone chat etc
15:16:59 From Rael Jones : I like Justine’s idea. But my main take-home is that you know you’re old when you’ve never even heard of Discord…
15:17:08 From Claire Batchelor : Haha
15:17:12 From Michael Price : Rael – neither had I!
15:17:13 From Justine Barker : I haven’t either
15:17:15 From Claire Batchelor : I’ve not heard of it either
15:17:20 From Toby Jarvis : Ive never heard of discord!
15:17:21 From Michael Blainey : Hi Daisy, I think you played some flute for us once? I trust you’ve recovered from that experience.
15:17:22 From Zinovia Arvanitidi : Rael i am with you here LOL
15:17:22 From Benjamin Symons : Don’t worry Rael haha its mostly used for gamers
15:17:30 From Jonathan Vincent : my kids use it. Old! 🙂
15:17:30 From Benjamin Symons : Hi Claire 😀
15:17:38 From Claire Batchelor : Hiii 😀
15:17:43 From Tara Creme : Real that worried me too 🤣
15:17:50 From Anton Yakshibaev : When you never heard of discord then it’s high time to discover something new I suppose 😉
15:17:53 From Tara Creme : Rael i mean
15:17:55 From Matthew Whiteside : I’ve heard of it but never looked at it. Never felt the need…. must be middle ages (not young not old!)
15:18:11 From Die Hexen To All Panelists : Hi Daisy! Tara!
15:18:15 From Daisy Coole : Hi Michael! For O2?
15:18:25 From Michael Blainey : that’s the one!
15:18:35 From Die Hexen : Hi Daisy & Tara!
15:18:45 From Tara Creme : Hola Die!
15:18:47 From Toby Jarvis : ‘Career’ love that word!
15:18:56 From Giles Thornton : Hello Tyler, if you are listening in!
15:19:20 From Daisy Coole : That’s hilarious. Well spotted! I can’t keep up with this chat feed enough to read the names (Hi Die and Tara!)
15:19:25 From Declan Birchall : If Allison happens to be in here, hello!
15:20:30 From Dan Watts : I’ve found peer to peer relationships to be extremely beneficial!
15:20:51 From dov waterman : Hi Dan!
15:20:56 From Andy Quin To All Panelists : if you’re here, hi Adri ; )
15:21:01 From Dan Watts : Hey Dov!

15:21:36 From Dan Watts : Yo, JV!
15:21:41 From dov waterman : Hey Jonathan!
15:21:44 From Ian Arber : this gathering of composers feels weird without beer 🙂

15:26:05 From Rael Jones : I desperately want to read that 1% correspondence
15:26:09 From Giles Thornton : Party Hard!
15:26:10 From Alex Kozobolis : massive gig + afterPARTY once the world starts spinning again
15:26:21 From Dan Watts : There’s always 1!
15:26:27 From Claire Batchelor : hahaha
15:26:35 From Benjamin Symons : Hi I write music and sink beers
15:26:35 From Kevin Sargent : NO PARTY!!
15:26:41 From Giles Thornton : Party like its 1980!
15:26:43 From Zinovia Arvanitidi : it’s funny. half of my screen is seriously chatting and the other half is raging about party
15:26:46 From Rob Knight : We are all rock n rollers at heart :-p
15:26:47 From Darryl O’Donovan : When we have that party we should get smashed and read the 1% emails to everyone!
15:26:49 From Matthew Jones : Drinks are on us
15:27:15 From Vikki Flawith : can we have another panel/attendee check-in half way through the process? cause this is so coooool
15:27:28 From Justine Barker : Sorry question lost in party responses but…. is there structure as in are people setting personal goals or saying to mentor at the beginning what they hope to get from this period?
15:27:30 From Natalia Wierzbicka : Question from Justine Baker: is there structure as in are people setting personal goals or…?
15:27:38 From Natalia Wierzbicka : *Barker
15:28:24 From Eric James : Video calls? Well I guess it won’t hurt to change out of my pyjamas one day a week
15:29:09 From Rael Jones : Its how producer “Flood” got his name – cause he made so much tea. “Drought” the other tape op, not so successful
15:29:19 From Michael McEvoy : Rituals and details…
15:29:33 From Simon Franglen : Totally agree Michael – To quote a mentor of mine, music comes around fifth on the list of things it takes to be a composer
15:29:42 From Amber Higgins : Thats a really good tip thanks Michael !
15:29:45 From Daniel Nolan : Totally agree with that Michael.
15:29:48 From Benjamin Symons : Should mentors be listening to mentees work? Giving feedback? What should we actually be doing?
15:30:40 From Michael Price : Benjamin – if it doesn’t become clear, I’ll ask!
15:30:49 From Michael Price : I think it’s becoming clear … 🙂
15:30:59 From Benjamin Symons : Thanks 😀
15:31:49 From Michael Price : Hi Justine – have noted that Q!
15:31:52 From Michael McEvoy : Great advice Michael. The discipline it takes to hit deadlines and how to structure ones day is critical. It’s also personal to a certain degree
15:32:17 From Michael Price : Justine – I think Ed’s covering that now …
15:32:38 From Lester Barnes To All Panelists : seems like we should be giving constructive criticism as mentors: opinions from personal perspectives and experiences
15:32:53 From Helen L : Fantastic chat. I like the idea of it being a mutual exchange, even if it’s a mentor-mentee relationship. Regretting not being able to commit to a regular time now 🙂
15:33:38 From Zinovia Arvanitidi : What Benjamin asked: Should mentors be listening to mentees work? Giving feedback? What should we actually be doing?
15:34:20 From Michael Price : (Lester – if you could change the preference about where you type to ‘all panellists & attendees)
15:34:57 From Benjamin Symons : Perfect
15:35:04 From Nikki & Joe Davison : We’re defrosting the freezer as we watch this… does that count as an icebreaker?
15:35:32 From Peter Flint : We could be partying
15:35:36 From Michael McEvoy : One day at a time…
15:35:39 From Laura Reid : i have been an OU mentor for CPD so could send stuff
15:37:17 From Nash Ngondonga : Nikki & Joe yes is does lol
15:37:23 From Nash Ngondonga : it*
15:38:11 From Lester Barnes : seems like we should be giving constructive criticism as mentors: opinions from personal perspectives and experiences
15:38:40 From Richard Hellgren : Hi Michael Mcevoy! 🙂
15:39:01 From Darryl O’Donovan : Hi Michael!
15:39:14 From Michael McEvoy : As a mentor I believe it’s important to be clear to a mentee that there’s no one specific way to go forward…life will always present surprises.
15:39:49 From Michael McEvoy : Hi Darryl!
15:40:00 From Michael McEvoy : Good to see you on this!
15:40:13 From Michael McEvoy : Hi Richard!

15:41:00 From Jonathan Vincent : Y
15:41:04 From Simon Franglen : Harriet: Could you reinforce Fight Club rules
15:41:21 From Benjamin Symons : Simon we shouldn’t talk about Fight Club
15:41:25 From Rob Knight : Ooh the 5 years question!! Someone, an agent, asked me that recently 😮 it does make you think about goals and that different paths that could take.
15:41:28 From Giles Thornton : You’ve just broken a rule there simon!
15:42:35 From Mathew Tucker To All Panelists : Is the emphasis here on careers advice or on musical advice or both?
15:43:24 From Kevin Sargent : Trust is your number one commodity as a composer
15:43:28 From Michael McEvoy : V important point Michael!
15:44:21 From Mathew Tucker To All Panelists : Thanks
