Covent Garden is hiring a Head of Bettermain
There’s a restructuring going on at the Royal Opera House.
Alistair Roberts has left Enterprises division and his empire is being split in two.
The boring bits – secondary income streams such as retail, catering, events – join the Business and Development department.
The people who handle print, online, broadcasting, cinema and suchlike are being herded with communications and marketing into a new group, Audiences and Media. A director is being sought at a handsome salary.
Here’s at tip for the head-hunters:
Are you fre–ee?
Is that Alan Yenyob of the Biased Broadcasting Corporation?
Mr Yentob is most adroit at snoozing through PowerPoint presentations and sending Internal Memos about paradigms and outcomes. Who else could they find to hoover-up a six-figure salary in exchange for no demonstrable results? Yentob’s yer man awright.
While on the subject of Covent Garden, but nothing to do with this post, I have a question. Are you sure Covent Garden is not using some kind of voice enhancing technology? After Carmen this week and comparing to the sound of La Scala, Salzburg and Vienna, I´m beginning to wonder.Can you shed any light?
