About

José Woldring

José Woldring is the CEO and founder of The Media Nanny, one of the most prominent PR agencies in the dance scene globally. Woldring is a Public Relations professional who helps artists and creative brands build an audience and craft their narrative through the press, new media and other platforms.

Before starting her PR agency, José was a competitive equestrian showjumper, a sport she left behind with her hometown, Groningen, when she moved to Amsterdam in 2008 to pursue her career in the entertainment industry. One of her big passions, breakdancing, introduced her to the music industry. Shortly after moving to Amsterdam, she was scouted as a presenter for MTV, whilst pursuing her study Media & Entertainment Management.

José founded The Media Nanny in 2010 at the age of 23, and in a short five years, the media maven had grown the business from a one-woman operation into a globally operating PR agency that represents clients such as Martin Garrix, David Guetta, Gianluca Vacchi, Jonas Blue, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, Joris Voorn, The Black Madonna and many more.

Championed for storytelling, concept creation, strategy development, brand partnerships, artist and event management, José leads a youthful, ever-growing team keeping the agency on the cutting edge of new opportunities and platforms.

In recent years, The Media Nanny has expanded to represent high-profile clients across various industries, offering a boutique service in the worlds of entertainment, fashion, sport, hospitality and B2B services. From Grammy award-winning stars to the most significant underground acts worldwide, through to festivals, music labels, sports stars, brands and restaurants, the company’s diverse and distinguished client roster speaks for itself.

Woldring recently launched an initiative with social platform Bumble named ‘Making Moves In Music’, of which she will also serve as a global ambassador. The initiative focuses on championing women in music by finding and supporting new electronic female talent.

Awarded by Harper’s Bazaar as ‘Woman of the year’ in 2017, Quote’s ‘Business Babe of December’ and recently named ‘Media Mastermind’ by Holland Herald and ‘Billboard Dance Power Player’ in 2018, as the first Dutch woman ever, she is not slowing down anytime soon. Branching out to become one of the most wanted consultants in the world within fields of creative content, influencer marketing and talent management, one thing is for sure, José is here to stay.

Jonas Tempel

Beatport, Co-Founder

Having only missed the very first year of WMC in 1985, it was 1986-1990 that initially placed me on the map globally due to the international attendance of the entire dance music community. All throughout the 90s I was often getting written about by various high profile mags and websites for having contributed to help break many artists, DJs, producers and remixers. WMC enabled me to bring many top industry people together all under one roof, especially at Groove Jet, where house music officially met Techno in my sets and it’s all been uphill since…TBC

DJ, Producer

Winter Music Conference is my ground zero. It has always provided the perfect storm of opportunity and excitement for up and coming artists, including myself back in 2003, where I first caught a glimpse of how it felt to have an audience respond to my work. Over the years, I’ve always made it a point to have WMC in my calendar because that’s the spot where everyone congregates and you can feel it in the air. Creativity, brother and sisterhood, FUN and most of all the chance to come together as a community and celebrate the reason we are all here—the music.”


Kaskade

DJ/Producer

Winter Music Conference was the cream of the crop of conferences. Every label owner, label A&R, DJ and artist knew they had to go network at the Fontainebleau where the conference was hosted. The conference was not only one of the most important time of the year as it relates to dance music but it was also a place where records were broken and became summer hits. Some of my best DJ memories are from the events I played during WMC in the last 20 years.
