The evening was MC'd by outgoing MD Ken Nottage who took questions from the floor as well as reading out some submitted by email beforehand.
Understandably, questions were posed on a variety of subjects - some relating to on the field matters, some concerning the club in general.
Ken did kick proceedings off with one popular announcement as he unveiled the new look speakers which will form part of the club's new PA system on matchdays.
The evening lasted approximately an hour and a half but a brief summary of the topics covered are listed below.
Q. How have you settled in Nigel?
ND: "It's been great. Everything I thought it would be. I went to John Brain's funeral a couple of weeks ago, which was obviously a very sad occasion. I had the chance there to talk to a few supporters and their passion for the club shone through.
"It was very humbling and very similar to the background that I've come from at the Scarlets.
"One thing which impressed me during my interview process was that there is a clear ambition for the team to succeed. All the facilities are in place, the resources at Hartpury and Kingsholm are second to none.
"I have the benefit of looking at things with a fresh pair of eyes and I've been hugely impressed. I certainly wouldn't have gone to just any club and the last three or four weeks have been everything I expected them to be.
"The players are a great bunch of guys who want to do well for the club, for the shirt. They appreciate what they're playing for and, given the right direction which I hope to provide, I hope they'll succeed."
Q. Ryan, what was it that convinced the board that Nigel was the man for the job?
RW: "His pedigree in the sport and what he achieved at the Scarlets in a relatively short space of time and under some financial constraints.
"We had several CVs from some very capable coaches but, at the interview stage, Nigel's professionalism, his thoughts on the processes and theories behind coaching all shone through.
"Out of all the candidates, he was the stand out. We're very happy to have him here."
Q. Several young players will be entering the final year of their contracts. How will we proceed to keep them at Gloucester long term?
ND: "We have to create something special here at Gloucester that the players want to be part of. Something more than just a group of professionals brought together to play rugby.
"I have to create that environment and culture. I plan to bring in former players to talk to the current squad about what playing for Gloucester meant to them and also ask some supporters to meet the players and explain what Gloucester Rugby means to them.
"It's not all about money and creating an environment where the players want to stay is key.
"In terms of squad succession planning and continuity, that's down to me. I have to identify who we want to sign and then go to the board for approval who have, to date, supported everything I've proposed.
"I want competition in every position, three players preferably to drive competition and performance. I've already looked at contracts, I know who is coming out of contract and, the sooner we re contract them, the easier it will be.
RW: "We should be competing for top four every single year. But it's a competitive league and sometimes you can't always achieve that for a variety of reasons.
"We're in a good situation financially and will give Nigel all the help he needs. There's still a little headroom under the salary cap at the moment for Nigel and he'll advise us on how he wants to use that."
CF: "We've tried in the past couple of years to get the business back on an even keel financially after a couple of years of losses. We made a small profit last year and will better that this year.
"This gives us a stable platform and allows Nigel to recruit with confidence. We're proud of our financial performance which compares favourably to most of the Premiership.
"And a lot of it is down to the fans. Our support base is terrific. We actually grew our average attendance last year by about a thousand. That level of support helps us provide the team we think the city deserves.
Q. Can Nigel talk us through his plans for the coaching team?
ND:"For the team to play better, individuals have to play better. We can only improve our players if we resource our coaching team properly from conditioning right through to rugby. And developing coaches is vital to keep improving players.
"I like to break the game down into certain areas - attack, defence, forwards plus specialist areas like the scrum. I will take an overall view in terms of philosophy and strategy.
"For Gloucester, I'm going to focus on core skills, in attack or defence, and also the breakdown area which is key. Unless we get the contact area right, we won't control games. We'll work hard on those and then build our game from there.
"Carl Hogg will look after the forwards, I'll look after the attack along with Mike Tindall who we will develop gradually. There's no pressure on him. He has a superb rugby knowledge and is a real Gloucester stalwart who loves the club. I'm quite excited about where Mike's progression can take him.
"I'm bringing in Paul Moriarty to look after the defence. We were the coaches at the Scarlets when we won the Celtic League a few years ago. I know him well and I trust him.
"And I will also be bringing in a scrummaging coach although I don't have a name to announce at the moment. But I'm looking at a couple of guys who have played for Gloucester in the past who understand the heritage of the place.
Q. A kicking coach?
ND: "Jonathan Callard has run sessions with us in the past and I've done a certain amount of kicking coaching myself.
"I've worked with others in the past like Neil Jenkins but kicking strategy is fundamental and that's something I'll be looking to bring into the environment.
Q. The purpose of the West Wales and France trips?
ND: "Going to West Wales was a coincidence and nothing to do with me! Paddy Anson is our new Strength and Conditioning Coach and one of the most impressive men I've met for a long time.
"The conditioning has to be right. I've been hugely impressed with Paddy and his work and most of this innovation is his work. Part of going away on a Friday is to focus our minds on travelling at the end of the week because, apparently, we haven't been too good away from home!
"We've worked hard and the level of intensity and skill on show has been excellent. Training on the sand is a good environment for contact work because there's no risk of studs getting caught in the ground and injuring knees and ankles.
"We'll be in Tignes for ten days which will be training at altitude. We'll be working hard, pulling everything together so we're in good nick for our preseason games. There are scientific reasons for it but it's also about getting away to a new environment.
Q. What are the changes at board level?
RW: "David McKnight has stood down at board level and I've assumed the role of Executive Chairman which means I'll be here more on a day to day basis and able to get more involved with the club.
"David will stay on in a non exec basis and his knowledge and connections will be vital going forward. And we're also fortunate that Ken will still be available to us.
"The board is nice and stable and working well together."
Q. Why are season tickets going up in price when we're in the Amlin and not the Heineken?
CF: "Last year, when we were going into the Heineken Cup, we only passed on the increase in VAT because we acknowledged that times were hard. There was no real increase to the club in terms of revenue income.
"Prices have gone up, by an average increase of 4%, which over the two years is well below the rate of inflation and we're not hiding from that. We really appreciate the numbers who renew their season tickets because we know it's a significant commitment."
Q. The Tom Jones concert was superb. What news on future events?
RW: "The Wanted concert was us dipping our toes in the water but Tom Jones showed we could put on a major concert.
"It was a great team effort and a staggering amount of work went into it. And thank you to everyone who came and supported it.
"We'll definitely do one next year, maybe two, but it's a question of getting the right act. Tom Jones was perfect in that respect. Nothing planned yet but watch this space."
Q. Can the club put on travel packages for away games in Europe? It might be financially advantageous?
CF: "It's slightly complicated because of the laws involved. You need licenses and bonds and insurance etc to be a travel package operator. We'd need to go through a third party but we'll look into it."
Q. Nutrition is obviously key - have there been any changes?
ND: "We have changed out catering partner and the players get three meals a day which they're very happy with at the moment. We're also using new hydration drinks and supplements, all legal of course, which Paddy is trialing for us.
"We've introduced a half time interval during training which enables us to better monitor the workload of the players.
"But it's a very good question. It's not just about what they eat on matchdays, it's also about what they eat during the week. We're constantly looking for areas to improve.
Q. Can the club compete on all three fronts?
ND: "We're judged on what we win. We have to look at the competitions differently but it all comes down to using the squad. We have a number of good young players and the only way they will develop is by playing.
"We also have to keep certain players fresh. Fatigue can lead to loss of form and also injuries. So, we do have to use the squad and ensure that players are ready to take their opportunity when it comes."
RW: "We should be looking to win silverware every year, that's why we're all in the game. It won't happen every year but that's the ultimate goal.
"There's a lot to do but the squad is good and we'll be pushing hard."
Q. How important is it to develop our own local talent?
ND: "Hugely so. I've talked already about the need to retain those who have already broken through from the Academy.
"What I would say is judge me on my legacy when I leave. One of my priorities is to put in place a structure where we identify and develop the best young local talent to play for Gloucester.
"It's important that every young boy in Gloucestershire can see a pathway to playing for Gloucester Rugby if they're good enough."
Q. We lost so many games last year due to ill discipline?
ND: "Discipline is key to everything we do. It's a fine line as we want to be a tough tea, to be a hard team. But we can do that legally through our contact skills.
"Narrow defeats hurt Gloucester last year. That was down to discipline, also goalkicking and the top teams usually have the best defensive records.
"If we improve upon those three areas, we'll improve as a team."
Q. What are your views on social media?
ND: "Our messages have to be clear and focused and I have a problem with anything that cuts across that and what we are as a team. I've spoken to the players about this as I want us to be a tight knit group."
RW: "I think Tweeting is a big part of sport but also that the values that Nigel has outlined are crucial to us going forward.
"But Twitter does allow supporters of all sports to have direct interaction with the players. It's a powerful tool and useful for the club to get out the right messages."
Q. We didn't manage the referee well at times last season. Your choice of captain will be important?
ND: "It is important and senior players have to be aware that they have a role to play in that respect. We'll talk about that as a group as we get closer to playing action
"I was a bit worried to see the officials' room so close to the away dressing room though - I think we might have to build a wall!
"Games can be decided by moments, moment which sometimes involve referees and knowing how to deal with that is important. You have to be able to adapt and react differently if things aren't going your way.
"I do have some views on captaincy but I will announce it to the team first which I think is important. But I don't always do the obvious thing - you'll have to wait and see!"
Q. Are there any new players coming in?
ND: "Maybe! There are obviously things I've been able to look at immediately where I think we need to strengthen and add depth. So, in conjunction with the board, they've agreed there are funds to strengthen certain areas and I will be doing that."
Q. What's happening with the Shed?
RW: "The Shed stays as it is. But we need to be competitive on the field to fill the ground every single week so there would be unnecessary costs involved in expanding the ground without an increase in fan base to support that.
Q. Will Mike Tindall get much game time?
ND: "It depends on his form, the same as everyone else. I want to create a lot of competition in the squad.
"Mike really feels he has something to offer as a player. I've got to say, he's in great nick and I've been pleasantly surprised at his skill set. I always saw him as a big guy who runs down the middle but he's got some real qualities outside that.
"We've got some great backs. Billy Twelvetrees started today and I'm really looking forward to working with him. He'll offer something different for us.
"Mike's got no pressure on him from a coaching perspective. If the backs aren't playing well, blame me!"
Q. What do you think makes playing at Kingsholm so special?
ND: "I can assure you, that every time I came here with a visiting team, the first thing we spoke about was the Shed!
"The supporters here are very vocal and there's pride and passion coming out of there and it's so close to the pitch. It creates a unique atmosphere, it's very special and very intimidating and long may it continue!"
Q. How has your coaching style been influenced by your coaches at Llanelli?
"I was coached by Gareth Jenkins and he was coached by Carwyn James so I'd like to think there's some sort of legacy been passed down.
"I certainly wouldn't put myself in the same bracket as Carwyn James, a man I've studies in depth. I've spoken to a lot of people who worked with him including Gareth. So, they've both been an influence.
"But every coach you work with has an influence in some way."
Ryan Walkinshaw rounded off proceedings by paying tribute to the role that Ken Nottage has played in his 13 years at the club.
