A former director of Google and the current holder of Birmingham Young Professional of the Year are among the guest speakers at Birmingham City University's (BCU) 2015 Rethink Media event.
Frank Golding used to advise the internet search giant on product, sponsorship and creative strategy projects, having initially joined Google as YouTube's head of sport for North America.
Jodie Cook is founder and managing director of Birmingham-based agency JC Social Media which provides social media management, training and audits for companies.
She is also co-founder of Clever Tykes, a set of storybooks which aim to introduce children to positive entrepreneurial role models.
Mrs Cook was crowned 2014 BYPY last May and regularly speaks at universities and colleges about social media and enterprise.
The 2015 Rethink Media event is the third hosted by BCU and will again focus on what is next for digital media and current trends.
It will be hosted by Jason Bradbury, a familiar face to viewers of Channel 5 programme The Gadget Show.
Other confirmed speakers include the director of BBC Future Media Ralph Rivera, blogger Lily Pebbles, radio futurologist James Cridland, chief creative officer at Somethin’ Else Paul Bennun and Rahul Chakkara, director of digital with Talk Talk.
Last year, BCU conducted research at a Gadget Show event into who 15 - 24 year olds thought were the key media power figures under the age of 30.
Evan Spiegel, founder and chief executive of instant photo app Snapchat, came out on top of the 20-strong list and he has been invited to receive an award from students during Rethink Media on March 18.
Also featuring in the list were David Karp, the founder of micro blogging site Tumblr, at number two and UK YouTubers Tanya Burr, Zoella and Alfie Deyes.
