This looks like a brilliant event, well done to those who've worked so hard on organizing it all.
Unfortunately, I can't make it and am gutted!
Hope it goes according to plan and that everyone involved enjoys and benefits from attending.
Best wishes

We're delighted to announce that Hindenburg, creators of the awesome digital audio workstation, will be delivering a two-hour radio production masterclass at the Community Media Conference. Nick Dunkerley will be flying in from Copenhagen to be with us on the day. Nick has more than 15 years experience in public radio broadcasting which started with a background in sound engineering and radio journalism at DR (Danish National Broadcasting Corporation). Before founding Hindenburg Systems, Nick worked as a consultant for community radio stations in Zambia.
