Fast Forward 15, the mentorship programme aimed at encouraging female talent in the events and hospitality sector, is looking for its third intake of mentees.

It is anticipated more than 300 applications will be received for 2017's programme, as the initiative goes from strength to strength.

Conceived by Zibrant MD Fay Sharpe to coach and upskill women in the events industry, the 12 month programme gives mentees access to high profile mentors and also ensures they work together to achieve professional and personal objectives and goals.

Sharpe said: “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. 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 Tuesday 28 February to submit their entry.
