Graduate Success Stories
Kane was already making a name for himself on the Leeds scene prior to joining our University, and was keen to stay in the city and continue building his business.
He was drawn to Leeds Beckett because of the varied nature of the entertainment management course, which he says allowed him to explore the subject and get a better understanding of each different area of the entertainment industry.
During his studies Kane was able to practice his art through one of the modules which required students to put on their own night club event, Kane says it was this work that laid the foundations for his future path and he credits the University for teaching him some of the life skills needed to be a successful promotions professional.
He says: “As a promotions manager no two days are ever the same; I’m often out on the road meeting different club owners, promoters and DJs. My studies helped me develop my knowledge of the entertainment industry and helped me to take my business to new heights.”
Kane is now the owner of the Leeds based ‘Sleepin’ is Cheatin’ brand, which he takes to crowded clubs across the UK and overseas to clubbing destinations such as Ibiza and Tenerife.
