Ozzy Osbourne’s guitarist will bring some rock ‘n’ roll to a business conference linking music and the corporate world.

Bernie Tormé will accompany Peter Cook, a lecturer who specialises in leadership and is presenting Monsters of Rock’n’Roll Business at the Hilton Hotel in Dartford next Tuesday (19).

“Procurement managers are not known for throwing televisions out of windows or for their creativity,” Cook said. “We’re teaching them about balancing order and structure with a creative spark which gives them the edge over their competitors.

“I’m bringing Bernie Tormé along to teach purchasing people a lot about buying and procurement from the school of hard rock. Bernie has spent a lot of his life on the other end of the supply chain, getting record companies to settle their debts and dealing with rock’s toughest people.”

Also joining the pair will be Ian Gillan, singer from band Deep Purple.
