“In the fast paced world that we live in, it’s important to take a moment to stop, reflect and reconnect with our heart and personal passions. FastTrack is a Professional Excellence Program that is designed to inspire from within and give young talents a boost as well as connect them with key leaders of the industry that they can be mentored by,” said Bharat Avalani, Chief Knowledge Officer, AFAA.

We designed this programme for AFAA with the aim of nurturing each and every participant in becoming extraordinary professional leaders and go further than they ever dreamt possible,” said Raymond So, Chairman, AFAA
