“Fast Forward has changed what’s possible for the future of our business at Facebook. It’s energized people professionally and personally and changed how we communicate with our clients and colleagues. We launched the Fast Forward program 5 years ago for everyone in our Global Sales Organization, and it’s been so valuable that we made it part of our Facebook onboarding for new executives and are bringing it to client and agency partners. I am proud that we have fueled thousands of careers and lives and will continue to do so in 2018.”

— Carolyn Everson, Vice President, Global Marketing Solutions, Facebook

“I’ve personally benefited greatly from the Fast Forward program, at work and in my life. Lisa McCarthy has been our highest rated speaker at several leadership conferences and our Women on the Move Leadership Day. She’s not only entertaining and inspiring, but the best part of the Fast Forward program is that it’s highly actionable.”

— Kristin Lemkau, Chief Marketing Officer, JP Morgan


I have been through many trainings in my career. Nothing has stuck with me like the principles of Fast Forward.  The tools are so practical and easy to apply – starting now. I have stopped using disclaimer language. I have started to choose a new perspective. I have a vision for myself that was different than I did a year ago – I am ready. Ready to be the best version of myself – as a business leader, a mentor, a colleague, and more importantly as a wife, mother, daughter, sister, and friend.

“Fast Forward has given our team a common language and tools for a high performance culture, which is key to ensuring the team and each person is realizing their full potential. Everyone now uses their Vision and Whole Life Plan to stay focused on what’s important at Google, and in other areas of their life. We are having more effective, outcome-driven conversations with clients, and making assertions and recommendations to forward their business. I would recommend Fast Forward to any leader looking to take an already-successful team to the next level, and give people something they will use throughout their career and their lives.”

— Tara Walpert-Levy, Vice President, Agency & Brand Solutions, Google

“Fast Forward has given our senior leadership team a practical and powerful common language. The full life approach really resonated with this team – as did the use of a vision as the defining element of focus. We have rolled the approach out to all our regions and are really  seeing the benefits. I’m personally excited to see how this is helping us to accelerate innovation and growth!”

— Scott Wells, CEO Clear Channel Outdoor


“Without a doubt, FF has been one of the most transformational experiences of my life. I have always been a structured, organized and accountable person by my very nature, but FF helped provide the framework and tools necessary to ensure that I don't have to do things alone when I fall/fail. Instead, I know how to get back up and forgive myself vs. beating myself up. More importantly, FF has helped me focus on the things and people that matter the most to me. My time is much better spent, the quality of my relationships are much more authentic and my sense of happiness/fulfillment makes accentuating the positive much easier. Fast Forward has become an essential part of both my professional and personal life and I am thriving and 'high-fiving' life because of it!”

— Krishna Nadella, Americas Head of Sales, Bloomberg


“Fast Forward has given our team the conviction that they can accomplish more than they ever thought possible — and it begins with having a Vision. Their approach is simple and actionable,  reminding us that discipline, preparation and practice are key to high performance sales teams.”

— Tim Castelli, President, National Sales Marketing & Partnerships, iHeartMedia


“I’ve worked with Fast Forward at three different companies. As a ‘triple crown’ client, I can confidently rave about their outstanding ROI.  With all three teams, I noticed a lasting difference in people’s mindset and behavior across discipline and levels: they’re thinking bigger and taking risks, they walk taller, speak up more and believe in themselves. They are more disciplined about their time and setting intentions for their meetings. It pays off by making us more focused and efficient. I still get notes from old employees who are grateful for Fast Forward. This is the best way I have seen to improve employee morale and do something actionable to grow your people and business.”

Greg Glenday, Chief Executive Officer, AdSpace


“In 2013, I was juggling many commitments — my family, a big job at a hyper-growth company, my health — and inevitably important things were getting neglected. I thought, ‘this is just what it takes to excel in this level of management at a company like Facebook.’ Then I did Fast Forward and it was a game-changer. I decided it was possible to fulfill my commitments in every area that is truly important to me. The Vision and Whole Life Plan tools gave me a practical way to get it all on paper. The Plan was hard to develop, but worth it — it made my Vision operational — and it made me accountable because I shared it with my manager and my wife! Fast Forward…I am thriving at work leading three major verticals, have strong work/life balance, lost 20 pounds, and paying it forward by ensuring everyone on my team uses the Fast Forward framework.”
