Organised by Reed MIDEM, Midem is the key industry event that unites the entire music ecosystem. It takes place in Cannes from 5-8 June, 2015.

Morris will talk about the "Lessons Learned," sharing his decades of experience in music, creativity, management and business, together with stories that changed the music industry, and how they can now be applied to better understand the challenges that it faces today. The keynote will take the form of an interview with Rupert Younger, Director of the Oxford University Centre for Corporate Reputation, part of  Oxford University's Said Business School. It forms part of Midem Talks, Midem's plenary conference programme, and will take place on Saturday, 6 June.

Morris began his career as a songwriter  and producer, his credits include the Chiffons' "Sweet Talkin' Guy" and Brownsville Station's "Smokin' in the Boys Room." 

"I knew very early that I wanted to spend my life in the music business and be part of the rock culture of that time. And that is the life I had, managing talent and creativity, leading change in the music business. It is now the right time to talk about the lessons I learned along the way. And I can't think of a better occasion than Midem to share such learning with the global music community," said Doug Morris.

Over the past decades, he has actively contributed to supporting the industry and shaping solutions to the various challenges that our music business has been going through.
