Fast Forward for Managers, Teams and High-Potentials

The Fast Forward Training Program gives your team the insights and tools they need to set and meet ambitious goals; to prioritize professional and personal outcomes; and to improve resiliency, confidence, and communication skills.

Fast Forward Women in Manufacturing

Women in the manufacturing industry often face unique challenges.

Forward-thinking companies recognize the benefit of gender equity and partner with Fast Forward Group for our proven approach to help women thrive and ascend in manufacturing and in their whole lives.

Fast Forward DEI

People from diverse populations often don’t have the benefit of role models and sponsors in executive positions within the manufacturing field.

They also must navigate people’s unconscious biases and microaggressions. Our diversity, equity, and inclusion training program equips people from diverse populations to succeed and advance professionally and personally while showing up as their authentic selves.

Executive Coaching

Our seasoned coaches use their personal business experience and Fast Forward Group Power Principles and tools to ignite top talent.

We tailor each coaching engagement, so clients achieve meaningful growth professionally and personally.
