Henry Hadaway, MBE, has been described by his peers and the media as a pioneer of UK independents in the international music scene, an entrepreneur, survivor and innovator. He is considered resilient, a Genius for re-inventing both himself and his company, a leader and even mogul.

He has set precedence in his field of work and always demonstrates ideas and concepts different to the 'norm' even if the odds are against him. Many independent companies in the music and media industries recognise Hadaway's ideas and methods and apply them in their businesses, in particular in the licensing, manufacturing and production aspects.

Hadaway has excelled in the music and media industries both nationally and internationally in the roles as a promoter, producer, licensor, and distributor of music/artists as well as being a director of his own independent media company, The Henry Hadaway Organisation, since 1969.

Hadaway established two companies, Satril Managment Agency and Big Ear Promotions, to promote major tours all over the UK for leading Tamla-Mowtown artists such as The Four Tops, Marv Johnson and Edwin Starr, in addition to booking acts such as David Bowie, Iggy Pop and Mr Big. Moreover he established the now legendary 'Sunday Rock at The Lyceum' at the famous venue in The Strand, London, staging acts like Wishbone Ash and The Strawbs.
