It’s always a highlight of the year when the Young Software Engineer of the Year awards dinner takes place. The YSE Awards recognise the best and brightest recent graduates in the industry. We celebrate their achievements and contributions to the field.
We welcome guests from across the country to learn more about the brilliant young talent emerging from our universities. The YSE Awards provide a platform for the community to come together each year and recognise the achievements of our best and brightest.
Guests love getting to catch up with friends and make cross sector connections that last. The dinner acts as a reunion for the community, reconnecting old friends, introducing new ones, and highlighting great work that often goes unrecognised.
Guests can come as individuals but why not book a table and share some good old Scottish hospitality with your clients and staff?

get inspired into action with our after dinner speaker bennett arron
Several years ago, comedian Bennett Arron was in serious debt. He owed thousands to phone companies, banks and department stores. Only it wasn’t him. Bennett had become the first major victim of Identity Theft in the UK. It left him penniless and homeless.
Years later Bennett wrote a comedy show about his ordeal which was critically acclaimed at the Edinburgh Festival. As a result of this, Bennett was asked to write, direct and present a Channel 4 Documentary on the subject. The programme, ‘How To Steal An Identity’ was ‘Pick of the Week’ in all the major Press and described as ‘Fascinating and Disturbing’. In the programme Bennett proved the ease of the crime by first stealing the identities of the general public and then stealing the identity of the British Home Secretary!
Bennett now speaks at conferences, expos and corporate events around the world and has appeared as a Fraud Expert on Sky, Channel 4, ITV and the BBC. He received an “Unsung Hero Award” for his work in Fraud and Cyber Security.
