In response to a challenge set down by founder of Fast Forward 15, Fay Sharpe, the 15 mentees of the industry initiative have organised ‘A Night of Sparkle’, to be held at Basement at The London Edition.
On 9 February, the exclusive charity reception will be an informal evening of networking and entertainment, with all proceeds going to Newlife Foundation, Prince’s Trust and The Clink.
The evening has been developed by the participants of the inaugural Fast Forward 15 to test their event organising skills.
Fay Sharpe, managing director of Zibrant and founder of Fast Forward 15 (pictured), said: “This task was designed to get the mentees to think on their feet and put what they’ve learnt from the course into practice.
“It’s amazing to see how the first class has developed over this last year and I am amazed at how they have pulled together to create an event from scratch, organising everything from the affiliated charities and sponsors to the prestigious venue and sparkling entertainment. I look forward to seeing the room packed on the night for what promises to be a fantastic occasion.”
A Night of Sparkle is aimed at young professionals across London and the Home Counties with tickets priced at £15 + VAT per person, which include a canapé reception, two complimentary drinks and a goody bag.
