Risk & Compliance

Minimising risk, maximising performance  

Risk management and compliance requirements are growing in complexity, so effective learning (that doesn’t put people to sleep) is now more important than ever.

Making creative learning solutions to reduce risk exposure and embed compliance standards while also being engaging and enjoyable for your people.

How we can help you

We work with you to understand your risk and compliance issues, goals and priorities and determine the most effective learning and performance approaches.  

Our creative learning solutions are designed to integrate risk and compliance management with business processes so that people are able to actively mitigate risks and perform to compliance standards, policies and procedures as they go about their job.  

One of the ways we do this is by using scenario-based techniques that engage people in real life situations. This helps make risk relatable and also helps your people embed standards and practices into their day-to-day work.

A custom learning solution that targets issues such as:

  • Anti-money laundering
  • Business continuity
  • Data privacy
  • Insider trading
  • Ethics
  • Diversity 


Will mean you can:

  • Ensure people recognise their responsibilities, so they and the business are protected 
  • Instil desired behaviours
  • Mitigate the legal liability if something goes wrong
  • Protect your organisation’s reputation
  • Reduce the likelihood of breaches

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.

We partnered with Optimism to create a series of eLearning modules. Working with them was really easy and I was amazed how quickly they understood our requirements, which led to truly outstanding results. Every stage of the process was delivered on time without issue. I would not hesitate to work with them again.
