About the event

"The Entertainment Empire Blueprint" is an immersive masterclass that unveils the intricacies of the music and movie industries, providing a comprehensive roadmap for success in these dynamic realms. This exclusive program is led by industry luminaries,

Dr. Glenn Toby, international Dutch filmmaker Philip Jamal Rachid, and the renowned Dante Kennedy the American composer, Sony Music Artist, and Music Director of Plazzo Verscae, collectively bring a wealth of experience and expertise to the table.

Dr. Glenn ( Sweety G ) Toby, the founder and CEO of Glenn Toby Enterprises (GTE), is a prominent figure in the international business landscape. GTE is a leading holding corporation with diverse interests in real estate, asset management, and technology, and a multi-tiered entertainment and athlete management company. Dr. Toby's extensive knowledge of the entertainment and business sectors makes him a key contributor to the masterclass, providing valuable insights into building and managing an entertainment empire. During the early 1980s, the cultural phenomenon of hip-hop burst onto the scene and right alongside it, Glenn Toby grabbed the mic and spit more than just a verse or two. Known then as “Sweety G”, Toby began his career rhyming with industry legends like Doug E. Fresh, Biz Markie, Treacherous 3, Boogie Boys, Cipher Sounds, Disco Twins, Stetsasonic, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, Kurtis Blow and, of course, Run DMC. Over his expansive career, Toby earned the trust of more than 50 NFL players such as Asante Samuel, Josh Evans, Damien Robinson, and Chester Taylor. Never forgetting his first love, Toby still finds time to shape and foster the musical careers of artists such as Damion Hall, Saigon, Positive K, and Q Da Kid.

Philip Jamal ( Soul Trotter ) Rachid, a self-taught writer, film director, producer, and consultant, adds a unique perspective to the program. His journey as a filmmaker has been marked by creative innovation and a commitment to storytelling. With his experience, participants will gain an understanding of the creative aspects of the entertainment industry, including the art of crafting compelling narratives and cinematic experiences. His first recognition came when he shot a short film on a Flip cam in Kurdistan in 2011 and the film was screened at the Duhok International Film Festival. In 2014 he won the Samsung Short film competition at The Dubai International Film Festival. After that, he won the Silver Act Responsible award at Cannes for a UN Female Rights awareness campaign in 2015.

With his new short documentary film project “SHE” he has won 7 awards and has had screenings over 10 festivals and counting, globally. His films always have Humanitarian themes or are Underdog stories.

Dante Kennedy is a producer, singer, songwriter and fashion designer from Philadelphia, PA. He has made a name for himself playing drums for Travie McCoy of The Gym Class Heroes. Dante has created something very unique with his productions that showcase his singing and songwriting abilities. Featured in Billboard Magazine (April '16) as an "emerging artist," Dante has embarked on iheartmedia's Jingle Ball Tour, performed on Ellen DeGeneres, The Queen Latifah Show and a few award shows as the drummer for Travie McCoy. Also, an affiliate of Bat Squad Records, an imprint founded by The Gym Class Heroes frontman, Dante Kennedy is the CEO and owner of V4texx Music Group LLC. He is also the Creative Entertainment Director for the Palazzo Versace Hotel Dubai & Quincy Jones Q's Bar and Lounge Music Director and drummer.

Together, Dr. Glenn Toby, Philip Jamal Rachid, and Dante Kenndy will guide you through the intricacies of music and movies, offering the tools and knowledge necessary to succeed in this ever-evolving landscape.
