Fast Forward Your Career

Last updated February 12th, 2016

The right encouragement at the right time during a career creates superstars: confident, high achieving, brilliant people that others look to for inspiration.
We’re always excited to hear about successful female role models as we know there aren’t enough out there. We’re doubly thrilled to hear that our very own Justine Kane is a mentor on the Fast Forward 15 programme for aspiring female event & hospitality managers.

Considering applying?

If you dream big with your career why not apply for the mentoring scheme? Fast Forward 15 is now open for 2016 and to apply you must be female (sorry guys!) and working / studying in events or hospitality (or associated industries). The full list of criteria can be found on the Fast Forward website.
Justine is one of 18 mentors from the world of events and hospitality who’ve excelled in their careers and are now keen to offer their support to the next generation of rising stars. As well as Justine the list includes Tracy Halliwell, Director of Business Tourism & Major Events for London and Josef Jammerbund, Head of Events at the British Fashion Council. Yikes, what a line up!

Who’ll benefit?

There are particular points in your career where you’ll benefit from support and guidance. For example are you graduating this year or newly graduated? Looking for a career change into event management? Have your sights set on a Board Director role and want to get there sooner? Determined to set up your own business?
If you’re starting or changing careers, you work in a small company or you want to set up a business, really good tailored career development advice is hard to come by. Mentoring could make a huge difference for you.
How do I apply?
Dust off your CV and update it with all your latest wonderful achievements. Then head along to the website and answer a few simple questions about what you are looking for from mentoring.
The closing date for entries is 22nd February and it’s a really easy application process, so you’ve got time to get in a really good application.

Let us know if you apply for it, we’re excited to find out who the successful applicants are!
