The Fast Forward Group named as an Honorable Mention on Selling Power’s Top Sales Training Companies

Top 25 sales training companies 2022

The Fast Forward Group is pleased to announce it has been included as an Honorable Mention company on Selling Power’s Top 25 Sales Training Companies 2022 list.

According to Selling Power publisher and founder Gerhard Gschwandtner, sales training is more important than ever. The economy has shifted significantly due to inflation, COVID19, the war in the Ukraine, shortages in supply and the emergence of new learning technologies.

“Sales training companies had to adjust in the last year,” says Gschwandtner. “Each of the sales training companies included on this list was able to pivot quickly to deliver best-in-class, engaging sales training both virtually, and in person. Their efforts and expertise helped their clients reach and exceed sales goals and decrease onboarding time in a highly challenging economy.”

The Fast Forward program goes beyond traditional sales training and skill building. Fast Forward ignites sales executives to play big, manage stress and achieve success and fulfillment in their whole lives. Innovative companies, including Google, TikTok, Meta, Paramount and JPMorgan Chase turn to Fast Forward’s training to help sales leaders create a high-performance culture. Clients cite a profound and lasting difference in risk-taking, customer focus, collaboration and well-being. 

“It’s an honor to be recognized for the difference we are making for sales teams — professionally and personally,” says Lisa McCarthy, Fast Forward Group co-founder and CEO. “It’s a privilege to partner with sales leaders who recognize that helping people thrive vs survive is a priority and key to accelerating growth and retention.”   

All companies on the list submitted a comprehensive application that included a detailed listing of their offerings for both training and retention, innovative solutions, their company’s unique contributions to the sales training marketplace, and their ongoing response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The main criteria used when comparing applicants and selecting the companies to include on this year’s top sales training companies list were:

  1.   Depth and breadth of training offered
  2.   Innovative offerings (specific training courses, methodology, or delivery methods)
  3.   Contributions to the sales training market
  4.   Strength of client satisfaction and overall client feedback

To evaluate applicants for the list, the Selling Power team surveyed and considered feedback from over 340 clients of the applicants. Here is a brief selection of comments from their clients:

  •   “They have a great methodology that is easy for the field to consume, and they go above and beyond to make sure their clients implement successfully and get a high ROI.”
  •   “Our sales managers that went through the training said it was the best training they had ever received as part of a sales organization.”
  •   “The prep work, training, and follow-up after training are all world class.”
  •   “Outstanding, key to our sales transformation.”
  •   “Really great people to work with. Professional and eager to work as real partners.”
  •   “Not only is the training content excellent, but the delivery and interactivity of the sessions really help participants absorb and apply the techniques.”

Selling Power magazine editors say CROs, sales VPs, and sales enablement leaders can leverage this list to find the right sales training partner to help salespeople succeed during social distancing and remote working.
