Celebrating International Women’s Day, Fast Forward 15 (a UK events industry mentoring scheme) mentees delivered an ’80s-themed charity event at Egg nightclub in London on 6 March.
The event was developed to test the event organising prowess of the mentees. This year’s team exceeded their target and raised over £4,000 (US$5,543) on the night with all proceeds going to Smart Works (UK charity) and Fast Forward 15.
Commenting on the programme, head of events at Chinawhite (London nightclub) and Fast Forward 15 mentee, Gabrielle Austen Browne, said: “I can’t emphasise enough what a worthwhile and inspiring mentorship programme this is and would encourage any ambitious women in events and hospitality to apply, no matter what stage of their career they are at.”
Fast Forward 15 is returning for 2018, offering 15 new mentees the opportunity to be a part of the programme. UK candidates can still apply through the dedicated site – click here to download your application form.
