Creating New Business
When asked how he can create new business, ClaytonHutson responds by saying a lot of his business comes from the referrals he receives from the people he has worked with in the past and who are still in touch with himself. Most of his success in those earlier days are still paying off thru the referrals he receives from those relationships that were formed in earlier times. It’s a pretty mall group of people who do this kind of work, which is stage design, sound engineering, live production and rigging services. There is also a lot of logistics in setting up the crew, the stage, the meetings with staff and artist throughout a tour.

All of this falls within the are of the Production Manager.
