    About Vanessa

    As Chief Executive of PRS Foundation, the UK’s leading funder of new music and talent development, Vanessa has played a fundamental role in making support available to talented UK songwriters and composers of all backgrounds at critical stages in their careers. Over the past 10 years in this role, she has worked with a range of partners to devise ground breaking targeted programmes and campaigns including the Momentum Music talent development programme, Women Make Music and Keychange, which invest in music creators, influence funding policy and raise awareness of the gender gap in music in the UK and across the world.  Outside of PRS Foundation, Vanessa uses her influence in other voluntary roles such as her Board position with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic where she Chairs the orchestra’s diversity group. This year Vanessa was recognised on the BBC Radio 4 Woman’s Hour Power List as the 3rd most powerful and influential woman in the music industry after Beyonce and Taylor Swift.
