The initiative is highly cost-effective and provides an efficient and flexible learning environment for students. There are ongoing returns from higher margins from such a low-touch offering, with automated online delivery, assessment and certification.

We thoroughly enjoyed working with Optimism and are thrilled with the work they produced for us. Optimism’s team are really collaborative; we always felt like they ‘got it’ and we were all on the same page. We’ve had great feedback from our learners who say that the blended approach has made the new workshops far more engaging and they feel more confident as a result. In short, we highly recommend working with Optimism!
Senior Business Advisor, MPI
When Gallagher embarked on our eLearning strategy we searched for a company that could fulfil our strategy and give us something that represented our brand and values. Optimism had a good track record and already had undertaken work for other big brands over many years. The team knew the industry and had clear guidance to help us plan our strategy and have a clear outcome. ....the feedback has been overwhelming.
National Sales Manager, Gallagher Group
We partnered with Optimism to transform our internal product knowledge in to e-learning that is accessible for our global sales teams. From the initial consultation through to development and delivery Sussan and her team demonstrated patience and true business partnering in their flexible approach to our business and strategy.

We found Optimism to be highly professional, innovative and easy to work with. They took the time to understand us and our challenges up-front meaning we ended up with exactly what we needed at the end of the process. In addition the quality, performance to agreed timelines and budget were spot on.
