Working in partnership with Facebook, GroupM offered 90 of their top young female managers a place on the Fast Forward Programme, designed to help elevate confidence and make progress in their careers. Abbie Baisden wrote about her experience:
I arrived at the GroupM Fast Forward Women event with excitement and trepidation – a full day workshop for women of manager level from across the GroupM agencies to learn about ‘high performance living’ and how to take control of your career. The excitement I felt was for the setting (Facebook’s offices) and the thrill of being selected for the programme. The trepidation was for the networking I was sure it would involve, that always strikes me with fear.
