Steffi von Kannemann
Steffi von Kannemann was the founder and co-owner of Berlin based music agency Nordic by Nature, before she founded her new company Better Things in 2020. With a degree in Sociology and Political science, Steffi has since worked more than a decade in the fields of Project & Event management, Marketing, PR and consulting. Through her diverse work she has gained a great insight of how the music industry works (and doesn’t work) and what is needed in order to create a healthy, inspiring and successful future industry. The keywords she refers to are knowledge and professionalism! Following her obsession with emerging trends of the digital media world, Steffi is now focusing on Better Independent, a knowledge hub for artists, to share her experience and give away useful information to inspire artists to be successful.
Since falling in love with the music industry after getting a job ripping ticket stubs at an Antony and the Johnsons concert at 13 years old, Anna Dungal has acquired extensive experience in the music industry and event production. As co-founder of monthly concert series Basement Bash, production manager for Midsommar Festival, artist liaison at Iceland Airwaves, songwriting camp coordinator, workshop host, corporate events manager and much more, she has gained a well-rounded insight into most aspects of the industry, with special focus on festival production, stage management, booking and marketing. While earning her degree in Music Business at BIMM Berlin, Anna noticed how many of her artist friends were lacking knowledge and tools on how to navigate our often confusing industry. Her final project was developing and teaching a workshop on the topic, an idea that fit in perfectly with Better Things’s concept ”Better Independent” where Anna is now Head of Department.
