WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY...

 

The Fast Forward team has really helped our teams, and the relationships between managers and their reports, become highly effective through their inspirational coaching workshops. They have embedded coaching as the principle development tool within our business. This has had a marked effect within the organisation, not only in terms of morale, but also, and more importantly in business performance.

   Latterly at the request of numerous senior directors, Fast Forward has been providing executive coaching to our leaders on a one to one basis.  Fast Forward have been excellent in finding the right coach for each situation and personality, which is essential to ensure that the client achieves their own particular needs from the experience. This has included coaching around career transition either in terms of promotion, career change or sensitively helping people make the right decisions when leaving the business as part of their outplacement following reorganisation.

   I have no hesitation in recommending their services to you.

Kingfisher has contracted with Fast Forward Coaching to provide executive one-on-one coaching to the senior leadership team of its international IT department. The coaching has provided all five senior leaders (and some of their direct reports) with insightful strategies to deal with managing the complexity of leading teams in a rapidly changing, fast-paced international environment.

  Additionally, Fast Forward has run a series of highly successful workshops for our people covering topics such as leadership, communication and interviewing skills.

   If you are thinking of putting an executive coaching or training programme in place within your organisation or just for yourself and would like more information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

“Fast Forward worked with my teams to enhance communication, motivation and to promote action.  The team intervention was fast and effective, and has produced lasting results.  Each person has grown individually, and they are better able to support each other - all round more productive, more focused and more happy.

  Fast Forward manages to mix the blend of theoretical with the practical and brings fun into the learning environment whilst ensuring that the interactions are adult and sensitive to individuals’ needs.

   I have no hesitation in recommending their services to you.”

“I first worked with Virginia when I was in HR at Coca Cola and used her services as a recruiter. Virginia became one of our preferred suppliers because of her great understanding of our business needs. I have since worked with the Fast Forward team whilst at Landor running a series of workshops which were a great hit and we are re - running them. Our delegates described the workshop as ‘fantastic, energising, inspiring, informative, insightful, fun and engaging'. Virginia also does some great 1:1 coaching. She is great fun to work with and has a vast array of skills that can be transferred to many industries.”

“I have found my Fast Forward coach stimulating and challenging. She has helped me move forward in a constructive and intuitive way.  Working closely together we have developed a range of alternatives that I wouldn’t have dreamed of.  I believe she has unlocked my full potential and re-invigorated my career at a critical point.

“Organisational restructure left me between the cracks.  Coaching got me out of where I was then to where I am now. I was able to get clarity, direction and it enabled me to articulate that.  “From a Level 4 to a Level 3, in a line Manager role, accountable for a team whose role is seen as critical……Promotion at a time like this within the organisation is rare - Thanks.

“My Fast Forward coach has coached me for 2 years and is a fantastic coach. She quickly identifies your strengths, moves on to agree challenging goals, helps you meet them and then challenges you to do more! I have also been a delegate on a number of courses run by Fast Forward held to improve team performance. All were fantastic learning experiences and were very effective. I recommend Fast Forward to all my network contacts.”

…it would have been absolutely impossible for me to do this as brilliantly on my own and do thank you very much for your very, very precious help.

Kingfisher plc

 

My coach has worked tirelessly to improve my managerial and leadership skills and taught me excellent new techniques to put into practice in my daily working routine. This has had significant impact on how I act in the workplace and how my colleagues perceive me. Indeed colleagues gave me unsolicited feedback on how impressed they had been with me after I’d put her techniques into practice.

  Fast Forward go out of their way to provide support whenever required and have been a remarkable help in furthering my career.

   I would not hesitate to recommend Fast Forward as Executive Coaches to anyone - their skills and areas of expertise are wide-ranging and everyone would benefit from being coached by them.
