Fast Forward ™
Fast Forward, East Africa’s premier leadership development programme, is about building WISDOM in business leaders: developing the deep insights and acute judgement that separates great leadership from the merely humdrum.
FFWD does this by assembling a small group of current and future leaders and training them to think deeply about the real questions of leadership. Fast Forward is aimed at current leaders who want to deepen their wisdom, and at those being groomed for future leadership. It also targets those who have had the nerve to start their own organisations and who want to raise their game. Each annual group contains a stimulating mix of people, to reflect the diversity of styles and contexts of modern business leadership. The programme is designed to be pragmatic, participative, and fit for Africa.

Learning - The Fast Forward Way
Individual and small-group sessions with the Programme Leader set out personal goals and share experiences from Fast Forward.
Participants engage in structured dialogues and debates in which they dig deeper to uncover the true reasons why leaders succeed or fail.
At the centre of the curriculum are lively group exercises that reveal insights into the everyday practice of leadership.
The FFWD alumni group is a vibrant and unique network that turns the programme into a lifelong journey of shared learning.
