LIBBY ABRAHAMS
Director

Having worked for over 20 years in some of the most prestigious global Artist agencies, it was a natural step to branch out on my own in order to deliver my vision of a modern, flexible and innovative Artist management Agency. Over the last three years, and with the support of my amazing artists and team we are about to embark on our third season. I am extremely proud of what we have achieved so far and I am hugely excited about the challenges ahead.

I haven’t looked back since joining Keynote: the years of experience in the industry that Libby and I share, combined with our wish to be able to work as closely as possible with our artists and partners on a wonderfully diverse array of projects – provides a truly creative environment, that inspires us to give of our best.  And to have fun doing so at the same time!

Having been with Keynote Artist Management from the very beginning, I am thrilled to see how much we have developed as a company over the last three years. As we expand our team, I am excited to be leading the development of our work with singers. I started my career in this field, it’s a passion that I have never lost and it’s wonderful to be starting this new chapter at Keynote.

CLAUDIA CLARKSON
Manager

These last two and a half years I have had a wonderful time working as a freelancer on a wide range of projects in the music industry. It has been a most enjoyable period in my professional life and for many months I never envisaged returning to a fixed position working in an agency. However, after I was approached by Alan and Libby I realised that I couldn’t miss out on the opportunity to join Keynote Management, an agency that is modern, adventurous, exciting and flexible, standing for everything I believe in the business and offer a unique style of forward thinking. I hope to help build on their current relationships as well as developing new interesting and diverse projects. I’m looking forward to the year ahead and everything we as a team can achieve for Keynote.

ROBERT SCHULTZE
Assistant Artist Manager

Having worked in various sectors of the financial industry, I soon moved to the world of media. After some years of work experience, I was offered a management position at Berlin-based photo agency, “Kasskara”, and later became the business manager of photographer, Mat Hennek. Through my work with Mat and Hélène Grimaud, I was introduced to Keynote Artist management and I am delighted to now be a member of the team.
