Jackie Fast

Excellent Business Speaker & Former Young Entrepreneur Of The Year

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.

Jackie has now launched her latest disrupter business REBEL Pi, an ice wine brand. Relatively unknown, ice wine production is the rarest and riskiest in the world. Taking an exceptional product from her hometown in Canada, Jackie is determined to turn REBEL Pi into a global drinks brand that will create a new drinking moment for audiences with a bold and discerning palate.

Jackie continues to travel the world presenting on the future of business and entrepreneurship with her best-selling business book PINPOINT. Jackie is also a Non-Executive Board Director of the European Sponsorship Association, one of the youngest Board Directors in the association’s history.

“Jackie is a no nonsense entrepreneur, naturally commercial and instinctively inquisitive, who has the rare ability and capacity to lead, guide and nurture clients. And still has time to write a no1 bestseller!”

“Jackie chaired and spoke at our inaugural Sales Forum at the Business Design Centre in January 2017. She was an absolute pleasure to work with, sharp, enthusiastic, confident and so knowledgeable. You could hear a pin drop in her session as delegates hung on her every word, until the Q&A when her broader knowledge and experience gave them real takeaways to challenge their approach back at work. As for Chairing, a consummate professional, everything ran to time, everyone was able to ask questions, and she wore some great shoes to boot!!”

“I had the pleasure of working with Jackie at Shoreditch House in my role as events programme manager. I commissioned Jackie to design and host a number of workshops for Shoreditch House members and guests. Jackie’s classes where extremely popular, and in fact we had to re-run many sessions due to demand. Jackie is a fantastic and prolific speaker on the world of sponsorship with a natural manner and creative flair. Highly recommend.”

“As a client of Jackie, she is great to work with as she and her team work at a great pace and are focused on helping get results. Jackie brought great insight to her analysis of our charity’s strengths and she knows how to build relationships to deliver results quickly.

“Fast by name and nature. Everything is achieved in a timely manner with a minimum of fuss. If you’re looking to raise your profile via sponsorship, look no further.”
