4 May - Shakespeare’s Globe: the business side of an arts organisation

See behind the scenes of Shakespeare’s Globe from a business point of view, followed by a guided tour.
Time and details:

Tuesday, 3 May 2016

Ian Dixon, Chief Finance & Operations Manager, at Shakespeare’s Globe will be speaking about the Business of Theatre- Making. 

At a time when government subsidies are decreasing, Shakespeare’s Globe has had a record year and Ian will be speaking about how The Globe’s business model has enabled this and what lessons can be learnt, not only by other arts organisations and charities but also by businesses as a whole. Shakespeare’s Globe receives no annual government subsidy and Ian will discuss what that means to the organisation and how the Globe fits in to the world of arts funding.

There will be time for some networking over a light breakfast before Ian's presentation and the morning will finish with a tour of Shakespeare’s Globe.

Profile of the speaker

For 25 years, Ian was with PwC and was a partner on their not-for-profit audit work, including managing significant relationships with the National Theatre and Southbank Centre. Wishing to make a difference from the inside of an arts organisation, he then moved to the arts-client side as Finance Director of the National Youth Theatre. He then became COO of The Serpentine Galleries before joining Shakespeare’s Globe in September 2015 as Chief Finance and Operations Officer.
