Global advertising group Dentsu Aegis Network and Slenky are inviting 3 lucky people to an evening with award-winning documentarian and broadcaster, Reggie Yates, in conversation with Eva Simpson.

From DJ and TV host to investigative broadcaster, Reggie has become the face of fearless documentary filmmaking for a Generation, examining everything from gun crime in Chicago, being LGBTQ in Russia, to life as a refugee in Iraq.

Initially resistant to documentary making and convinced his point of view as a young, black working-class man in entertainment would not make his films credible, Reggie turned the very thing he once saw as a weakness into his strength on camera.

Eva will also talk to Reggie about his first book, Unseen, which takes us behind the scenes on his journey from TV host to documentary storyteller.

Using some of the key moments and extreme circumstances he has found himself in, Reggie examines what he has learned about the world, and himself as a person.

Eva Simpson is Editor at John Brown Media. Eva was both an original “3AM Girl” and a long-term home news editor on The Times news desk in a career notable for its variety and multi-media nature.

If you're interested in media, advertising, marketing, communications or broadcast this one's for you. You'll get the chance to meet and network with 100+ people from the areas you're targeting and you may even get a chance to put a question to Reggie - who knows?

Networking and refreshments from 5:30pm.
