I have had the pleasure of working with the Optimism team over the last 14 months. In my opinion they are professional, efficient, thoughtful and innovative.

Dairy Apprenticeship Manager, Fonterra
Optimism have helped us take some very complicated regulatory requirements and express these in interesting, fun, interactive and easy-to-understand training courses. As the main gateway to New Zealand, various regulators review our training programmes to make sure we are communicating security, health and safety, fire evacuation and biosecurity requirements clearly to all Airport users. There has universally been a high level of comfort and confidence expressed in the training courses Optimism team have developed, and we are very pleased with the end outcomes.

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.

Senior Business Advisor, MPI
Optimism gave us the fresh new design we were looking for. They listened and worked closely with us to deliver a blended solution that felt new and exciting to our learners. The combination of animated video, eLearn, and motion graphics engaged our learners to upskill on an age old topic in a fresh new way that was tailored specifically to them.
Capability Manager, ANZ
I've been through both courses and I really like them. They are user friendly and not overly complicated. In addition I think it is a more efficient way of delivering induction training; and we are now very interested to introduce this to our AU employees also!
