...and what they're saying


We found Optimism to be highly professional, innovative and easy to work with. The eLearning modules they created for us are highly engaging and well-matched to our needs and our people. They took the time to understand us and our challenges up-front meaning we ended up exactly what we needed at the end of the process. In addition the quality, performance to agreed timelines and budget were spot on. National Manager | Human Resources

Optimism worked with us on a range of digital learning solutions to help health and social service workers engage with Pasifika people. We were thrilled with the results. The learning experiences Optimism created were engaging, relevant and culturally appropriate. We highly recommend working with the Optimism team. Le Va Relationship & Cultural Manager
Optimism worked as a true partner with us on this HoNOS Refresher learning project. They helped us spot potential pitfalls and keep the project on track. The digital learning experience they created was engaging, application-focused and highly relevant to our learners. Their very well-structured methodology gave us confidence that the finished product would be fit for purpose (and it was). They're a great team. Principal Advisor
