The Government’s digital champion will be grilled by the BBC’s Rory Cellan-Jones on her experience in business, including founding dot.com darling, Lastminute.com, and her recent work on the Race Online 2012.

Zoe Osmond, Nabs chief executive, said: "The topic of building a networked nation, and the Q&A format between Martha Lane Fox and Rory Cellan Jones, coupled with a chance to win a one-to-one conversation with Martha, makes our first 2011 ‘Audience With’ an unmissable event.

"Attendees include Google, Sky, AMV BBDO and WPP, so it also promises to be a great networking opportunity."

The event will take place at LBi’s Brick Lane offices, on Tuesday, 8 February. Tickets for the event are priced at £65 and can be bought here.

For an extra £5, attendees can enter a competition to win 10 minutes' one-to-one with Martha Lane Fox. Money raised will go to support the work Nabs does within the advertising community.
