Safeguarding Our Clients
At Black Hat, we strive to strike a balance between the clients & the artists.
In a conscious shift away from the role played by traditional artiste managers, we at Black Hat see ourselves as partners to our clients. Unfortunately, most industry norms & terms favour the artists over the clients & our endeavour is to balance it out by doing whatever it takes to safeguard our client’s interests.
We are honest & sincere in our recommendations & suggestions, as we are not committed to selling a particular set of artists, unlike most talent management agencies.
Our recommendations are driven by the business objectives of our clients. As a practice, we consider a set of key criteria like target audience, budget, theme and other relevant factors to find the best fit talent for an event or campaign.Core offerings
- Influencers and content creators for Digital engagement and campaigns
- Talent / Performing Artists, Speakers and Entertainment solutions for on ground and virtual events
- Celebrities and Talent for brand endorsements and appearances
METHOD IN THE MADNESS
With a mission to make things stress-free for our clients, we have raised the bar in professional business conduct by streamlining the process, in a largely unorganised industry.
Here's Our Modus Operandi:
We usually acknowledge all emails within 1-2 working hours, with queries, if any, to accelerate the process.
We don’t follow a cookie-cutter approach to solutions. As a practice, we consider a predefined set of key criteria before recommending the most meaningful talent solutions.
If the brief demands going beyond the existing pool of talents, we go every mile to discover a hidden gem, a local artiste or a regional / international talent that fits the bill, within a mutually agreed upon time.
We usually revert with our recommendations within one business day, along with detailed reference material including talent profile, video links, cost, terms / requirements and every relevant information that could aid the decision making process.
After identifying the final preferences of the client, we try & negotiate with the talent to ensure we offer a competitive price to our clients.
We define the exact scope of work, terms and requirements to set the expectations right for both the parties before confirming the booking in order to avoid any last minute surprises. We work as a partner to our client & take responsibility & accountability for the booking(s), once signed.
Our end-to-end assistance right from the proposal stage to final execution offers a seamless experience for our clients. Should a challenge arise at any stage, our focus remains on resolving the same with a positive attitude.
We are made of sweat, blood and a whole lot of passion for everything we do within the organisation or outside of it. Everyone at Black Hat lives by a set of common values that shape our culture, empower our results and lead to strong relationships, as individuals and as a company.
We believe success needs a healthy mix of hard work, smart work and heart work. We are committed to doing everything it takes to deliver sincerely, beyond what’s trending. We love going that extra mile because it’s never crowded there.
We are a bunch of self driven individuals who respect time as the most valuable currency. And this reflects in our response as well as our turn-around times. We’re not only prompt and proactive, but detail-oriented as well, to aid our clients’ decision making process.
Grey is not our favourite zone. We ensure that things are Black & White so all the concerned parties can be on the same page. It’s the touchstone of everything we do, every step of the way, at all times. We strive to leave no room for last minute surprises.
Our fundamental focus is not on a single transaction, but on building enduring relationships with our clients and also within our company. We look at each of our stakeholders as our partners and endeavour to play a small role in their growth story – personally and professionally.
Research shows that when people work with a happy mind, performance on nearly every level - productivity, creativity and engagement, improves. We believe work and life should be driven by happiness and harmony as the end goals, not sales targets.
