Jackie Fast, The Apprentice Star To Speak At IBWSS London

She directs leaders on how to succeed through the power of sponsorship in the current era of disruptive media fragmentation.


Having sold her company in 2016 and published a business book in 2017, Jackie says she is a trailblazer within the sponsorship industry and wider business community and credits her success to her positive attitude. She admits she can be very opinionated and isn’t good at taking criticism, but hopes her commercial mind will see her through the process.

Jackie Fast Will Speak On ‘The Parallels of being on The Apprentice and launching a drinks brand” at the IBWSS London show that’s happening in March in London.

Former Young Entrepreneur of the Year and Media Disrupter of the Year recipient, Jackie Fast is no stranger in utilising change to amplify growth.  She directs leaders on how to succeed through the power of sponsorship in the current era of disruptive media fragmentation.

Arriving from Canada in 2007 with the intent to backpack Europe, Jackie ended up staying in London and launching her career. Her first business – Slingshot Sponsorship – was started in her bedroom in 2010 with just a laptop and £2,000. A relentless 6 years later with offices worldwide, Jackie sold Slingshot for millions, having worked with notable international clients including Sir Richard Branson, the Rolling Stones, Shell, Red Bull and many more.

The session will cover 5 things you didn’t know about the show and how they helped launch my new business:

  • Run before you can walk
  • Move faster than your competitors
  • Bring something to the people that they don’t know they want
  • Overcome people challenges
  • The proof is in the pudding
