Ticketmaster Mentoring Programme

We’re excited to announce that we have partnered with Ticketmaster, the global market leader in live event ticketing, to launch a mentoring programme for FastForward Alumni.

The brand new programme will pair leaders from across the Ticketmaster and Live Nation business, with bright young people from our network and community of dynamic young industry executives.

Six mentors will each take on one person for 12 months, giving regular advice on all aspects of a mentees’ working life.

Thank you to everyone who has applied to the Mentoring Programme. Submissions have now closed, with the successful mentees announced below.

Congratulations to our 2018 Mentees!

Good luck from the FastForward team for the coming 12 months with your new mentors.
