The night will kick off with informal networking and wine/nibbles from 6pm, with the main event and various activities from 6.30pm until 8.30pm. Media sessions will be led by the following people from the Bauer Academy:
- Courtnay McLeod, Director of Bauer Academy with extensive career in both media and education.

In addition to commercial radio, she has worked with independent production company Dabster Productions to produce chart topping podcasts at the Edinburgh Festival for The Pleasance, Amnesty International and the Guardian.
- Gavin Pearson is a well-known voice to listeners of Clyde 1 and Clyde 2 in Glasgow. He’s presented every show on the schedule, from Breakfast to Saturday night dance shows. Gavin still presents on Clyde 1 and Clyde 2 and regularly covers locally and nationally broadcast shows, but in recent years, he’s taken on a more off-air role, as part of the Bauer City Station Imaging Hub. This involves helping to shape the sound of over 40 stations across Scotland and the North of England.

Duncan became Deputy Programme Director at Clyde 1 in 2011 before moving to Programme Director for newly launched Greatest Hits Network in 2013.
