With two Amsterdam conferences plus a London event under its belt, FastForward is starting to explore the potential for building a network of its young industry attendees.
The company has announced a partnership with Ticketmaster to deliver mentoring for a small group of its attendees. Six Ticketmaster (and parent company Live Nation) execs will each take on one person for 12 months, offering them regular advice on their career.
The six include Live Nation’s SVP of marketing international Jackie Wilgar; Ticketmaster’s senior director of design and UX, product Christine Lanoy; and its senior manager of international business development and artist relations John Talbot.
The mentorees must be working in the industry preferably with at least two years’ experience, and have attended one of the FastForward conferences.
