Quick portraits with on camera flash

I've been asked to take 25 headshots in a half hour for some new employees. Normally I would bring in my Bees, set up and test for a half hour beforehand, then take 10-15 shots per person in a couple of poses. I don't have the luxury in this case.

What I was thinking was to just take my 430EX on camera and bounce off a white foamcore panel behind me, slightly above and off to one side. Sit the subject down, try to keep the background simple. What do you think? I have little experience with on camera flash, and am wondering if this kind of approach will yield pleasing results.

Your comments would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.
