Clayton Hutson is a popular entrepreneur in the entertainment industry, and provides services to event organizers and musicians. Prior to his career, he was able to pursue theatre design in the university which made him secure employment in different companies within the live music industry as a project manager. The companies exposed him to the different aspects of live entertainment which also allowed him to hone different skills. That in turn enabled him to establish his firm where he designs, manages and produces concerts. Most of his work involves rock music and this has seen him work with big names in the music industry.
In 2005, Clayton took part in the “Bleed like Me” world tour which traversed through various parts of North America, Australia and Europe where he served as the monitor engineer. During a recent interview, Clayton was able to answer several questions about the live music industry and his life. Hutson was inspired to start his business through the experience he acquired working with different companies in the music industry. One of the major ways by which he attracts his clients is by paying attention to details, and not shying away from long hours, as this enhances his reputation among clients who value professionalism and dedication. His keen eye on details also helps his business succeed.
That’s made possible by the fact that he double and triple checks his work for errors which may compromise the quality of the show. Clayton also attributes planning as a major tool which aids in managing his crew while at the same time boosting efficiency and productivity. The ever trending advancements in technology have brought about swift changes within the industry, and it is very crucial for him to keep up with these developments in order to ensure customer satisfaction.
Clayton also says that his normal workday begins at 6:00 a.m., and he is usually the first person to get to the performance site where he begins to review his schedule while at the same time develops a list of tasks to be completed before the concert kicks off. His view about family and work is that he always puts family first, and that he is always honest with himself and others. This has enabled him to win many clients over as clients often need a service provider who will be honest in the daily dealings. As a parting short, Clayton encourages every individual to read an inspiring book by the name “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff… and it’s All Small Stuff.” which allowed him to see life in a different perspective, thus attributing his success to this book too.
