Fast Forward 15 seeks its third intake of event mentees

Fast Forward 15, the industry mentoring scheme focusing on encouraging female talent in the sector, has announced the search for its third annual intake of mentees.

Founder of the programme, Zibrant’s Fay Sharpe, says she expects record numbers to apply this year.

The programme runs over 12 months and is designed to give mentees regular access to their high profile events and hospitality mentors who can help them achieve professional and personal objectives and goals.

Applicants in the second year were up on the first year and it is anticipated over 300 applications will be received for 2017’s programme.

“We have another stellar line up of mentors, from Paralympians to industry recognised experts and FTSE100 corporates, who possess significant knowledge and experience to share with our next intake,” says Sharpe. “We’ve seen huge success stories from the past mentees and I’d encourage any female that is looking to expand their horizons to apply.”

Candidates wishing to apply to be part of Fast Forward 15 should visit: and have until 28 February to submit an entry.
