Transforming Brands Through Sponsorship
Jackie Fast is the Founder of Slingshot Sponsorship – an innovative strategic sponsorship sales agency based in Central London with offices worldwide. Launched with the belief that sponsorship has evolved and now has the ability to truly transform businesses, Slingshot has successfully taken their strategic commercial framework and applied it to the world’s leading brands who want to take their investment beyond eyeballs and awareness.
Jackie Fast recently sold her sponsorship agency Slingshot Sponsorship and has exited the business. As founder, she grew the bootstrapped agency to the global powerhouse it became through it’s success in innovation with brands, which transpired into significant sponsorship sales deals with FTSE 100 companies.
Jackie is now a regular keynote speaker within Europe and has spoken at global marketing conventions in Australasia, the Middle East, and throughout North America. Jackie is also a Non-Executive Board Director of the European Sponsorship Association, one of the youngest Board Directors in the association’s history.
Over its 7 years of existence, Slingshot Sponsorship grew to work across numerous verticals with clients ranging from grass roots charities, leading FTSE 100 companies, global music artists, startups and entrepreneurs. Some of Slingshot’s clients have included Sir Richard Branson, the Rolling Stones, the Mayor of London, GB Taekwondo, Spotify, Bloodhound, IBM, Universal Music, Haymarket Consumer Publishing, Renault, Wales Rally GB, E.ON, and Shell – all with the desire to take sponsorship further.
I was very inspired by her ability to convey a complex commercial strategy, namely sponsorship, to a new audience
