Fast Forward

Helping you see beyond the year with confidence

8-10 June 2021

This three day virtual event will offer some much needed perspective on what the future holds for you, your team and your brand. Expect answers to the big questions about the future of your brand, your job and the way you work. 

By June, it will be time to dust yourself down and look beyond the end of the month and the quarter. Each day of June's Festival has a carefully curated theme, which will provide you with thought-provoking content to help you get future fit. This isn’t an exercise in specious future gazing but an honest look at what will and won’t change and how to prepare.
