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.
