In April 2015, I was lucky enough to visit Silicon Valley, the global driving force behind the development of information technology. I went on this tour in search of new ideas for my project.
During the tour, we visited the world’s most advanced companies that practice lean production. Our trip was action-packed. We learned there are methods that we could employ in our companies.
Thank you, FastForward, for the wonderful management tour; there was a lot of useful and valuable information. We visited Google, Microsoft, and Facebook. The trip has exceeded all expectations.
With FastForward, I visited Silicon Valley and many well-known global companies. The things I learned about the inner workings of these companies are very valuable. This trip is very beneficial because of the people you meet and share your experiences with.
I have worked with FastForward a couple of times and participated in several of their tours. I learned how businesses and start-ups are managed in practice and was inspired. I returned enthused about new challenges from all my trips. I recommend FastForward tours to businessmen of all levels.
I really liked the way everything was arranged and the companies we visited. I was impressed with the approach to people there, which we do not have. Such tours will be useful for HR-directors, business owners, and people who want to accelerate their business and improve work efficiency. In fact, it was important for me to meet the guys who were in the group. It was from my fellow tour participants that I learned about some types of technology.
I would say that the tour arranged by FastForward was one of the most enjoyable experiences in my life in terms of what I had learned professionally and in terms of how well the entire process was organised, how intensive the educational part of the tour was, and how much time is given to culture and entertainment. I gained a lot of professional knowledge, ideas, and thoughts about what could be implemented in my country.
I was interested in this tour because I wanted to see the best American personnel management practices. We visited Google and Facebook and had a look at PayPal. We studied HR from various angles, in different structures, in different industries. I want to thank FastForward for the valuable information I learned on this tour.
As part of FastForward’s USA HR Tour, we visited the leading business innovators such as Facebook, Google, PayPal, Zappos, Walmart, and Starbucks. We learned much about the inner workings of these companies, non-financial motivation methods, and many other things. The tour inspired me to open new offices abroad.
