What We Offer

Our Proven Approach to Nonprofit Professional Development

Bold Vision Workshop

Inspire your nonprofit organization’s team to be bold and play big with our Bold Vision Workshop.

We provide a simple, science-backed exercise inspiring your team to take risks, focus on what is important at work and in life. Improve engagement, productivity, and culture with this 90-minute to 3-hour workshop.

Fast Forward Training Program

The Fast Forward training program gives managers and high potentials a proven approach to think big, manage stress, and achieve success and fulfillment in their whole life.

Fast Forward begins with time to think: What does extraordinary success look like in your whole life? Participants leave inspired to go after their goals with intention and discipline—equipped with a simple, proven system to get there.

Fast Forward for Women in Nonprofit

Women in the nonprofit space face unique challenges, from advocating for themselves and being heard to navigating unconscious biases.

Fast Forward partners with nonprofit organizations who recognize the deep importance of gender equity and the benefit of setting women up to thrive and ascend.

Fast Forward DEI

People from diverse populations don’t often have the benefit of role models and sponsors in executive positions. They also must navigate 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.
