Wednesday 14th November | Compass Room, The Lowry, Salford Quays M50 3AZ
Want to work in radio but not sure how to get your foot in the door? Well, look no further than the aptly-named Foot In The Door Masterclass at the Radio Festival!
Foot In The Door is the Radio Academy Masterclass where the delegates set the agenda. The session is broken into ten themed rounds, with delegates getting the chance to meet and question industry insiders. Just like speed-dating, delegates get 15 minutes to talk to the individuals on each table before the klaxon sounds and they have to move on.
Tickets: £24.00 plus VAT (members) / £48.00 plus VAT (non-members).
