"I found all their staff, trainers and guest speakers to be total professionals with great empathy and respect irrespective of participant’s varying abilities. I also appreciated their many great industry connections which they were happy to share with me. I successfully completed the course and secured a really interesting and rewarding new job soon afterwards, I would highly recommend Optimum not only as a first class training provider but as great business mentors too."
