Sallie Coventry

A new events-focused initiative just got a vote of confidence from a big industry player: Sallie Coventry, portfolio director for ibtm events, will be a “mentor” for Fast Forward 15, a new industry initiative created by Fay Sharpe, managing director of Zibrant

Coventry will join 12 other influential senior event and hospitality industry experts who will help mentor “the most talented, rising females joining the industry.” The names of those selected from a formal application process will be announced at a launch event in London on March 20. A not-for-profit and free venture, FF15 is “unique to the event and hospitality industry,” according to founder Sharpe.

“Having worked in this industry for many years and alongside Fay, I was delighted to accept her invitation and to give whatever I can from my personal experience to those just beginning," Coventry said in a statement. "As a women who has been given opportunities to succeed in this industry, I hope that I can bring some benefit as a mentor.”
