Commenting on the initiative, Pradeep Guha, Chairman of AFAA, said, “Since its launch in 2013, the Fast Track Professional Excellence Programme has been a catalyst in accelerating the careers of many young professionals. This year too, the three-day specialized training program will guide young professionals to reconnect with their passion for the industry, and enhance their skills as they face the challenges ahead.”

Professionals can apply for sponsorship by writing an article on how communication can be made into a force for good. The article (not more than 100 words) should be mailed to acifasttrack@gmail.com along with their brief profile (age, valid passport number, jobs details, etc.) before March 24, 2015.
