The Cheetah Conservation Fund UK Welcomes our New Ambassador, Jackie Fast

We are very proud to announce that Jackie Fast, entrepreneur, investor, author and speaker, has become our new Ambassador for the Cheetah Conservation Fund UK.

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 and travels the world presenting on the future of business and entrepreneurship. Jackie set up Slingshot Sponsorship, growing it from an office in her bedroom to an international, award-winning agency working with brands including Sir Richard Branson, Rolling Stones, Shell, Red Bull and more. Having sold it for millions, she has now launched a new business REBEL Pi, an ice wine brand, with plans to turn it into a global drinks brand. Many of you will also remember Jackie from her participation in the BBC’s “The Apprentice” in 2018.

Jackie is passionate about big cats and conservation and has recently returned from supporting CCF’s activities in Somaliland. She said, “I’m absolutely thrilled to be the new Cheetah Conservation Fund UK’s Ambassador. Being an animal lover, I think it’s absolutely crucial that we do all we can to stop the illegal pet trade and keep more beautiful creatures like cheetahs on our planet in abundance. The work that CCF is doing is ground-breaking in the animal conservation space and I’m delighted to be helping them achieve their vision!”

We are thrilled to have her as part of our CCF UK Team.
