The Asian Federation of Advertising Associations (AFAA), of which Advertising Council of India (a division of STACA Trust) is a member, had commissioned a unique initiative in 2013 called Fast Track Professional Excellence Programme. It is targeted at young professionals from the advertising, marketing and media industry. This year the three-day specialized training programme will be held in Malaysia from April 17-19, 2015.
In its third year now, the Fast Track Professional Excellence Programme was designed with an aim to support the up and coming stars of the industry in their career growth. It empowers young professionals (below 35 years and with at least five years of work experience) with the necessary skills to excel in their respective professions. This year, too, The Standing Committee on Advertising (STACA) will be sponsoring around 4-6 young professionals for this programme.
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 programme will guide young professionals to reconnect with their passion for the industry, and enhance their skills as they face the challenges ahead. ”
Young 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 firstname.lastname@example.org along with their brief profile (age, valid passport number, jobs details, etc.) before March 24, 2015.
Founded in 1978, AFAA has representations in 15 Asian nations (Japan, Korea, Taipei, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines, Indonesia, Bangladesh, India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Pakistan and UAE). Under its auspices, AdAsia (biennially), Adfest (annually), and the Asia Pacific Media Forum (biennially) are held.
