DICKINS HONORED

Lucy Dickins brings out her children at the MITS Award celebration in London.

WME super-agent Lucy Dickins used her acceptance speech for the MITS Award in London Monday night to shine a light on working mothers.

“Life in this industry, as you know, is extremely busy. But being a working mother is another beast altogether,” Dickins said with her two children onstage beside her. “I have so much respect for you mothers who are fighting the fight because it is not easy. We're constantly feeling that we're sacrificing one part of our life for another. So whatever way you look at it, you have guilt. And it's really, really hard to balance it all and often people say, 'I don't know how you do it all.' But you absolutely can't do it all; all you can do is just do your best. That's what I tell everyone.”

Dickins brother, September Management founder Jonathan Dickins, presented her with the award, calling her “a fierce negotiator, strategic, loyal, and most importantly, the greatest sister I could possibly ever have.”

He also praised the WME global head of Contemporary Music and Touring for her ability to juggle a high-level career with parenting: "I'm really proud because I think I've learned one thing, and that is that I have a newfound respect for what it means to be a working mum. Anybody that holds a career, and especially the level that she does, and happens to be a present parent... I'm in awe of that. And that, to me, goes well beyond any achievements in music.”

Accepting her award, Dickins said: "May we continue to nurture, support and empower great talent and may we continue to live and love in music. I'm truly humbled to receive this award tonight and I hope that in some small way I've inspired the next generation of women in music, which translates into the live music business in the future.”

Other tributes came from clients Adele, who recalled how she and Dickins first met, and Little Simz, while Hot Chip and Loyle Carner performed.
