Happy Clients

“Optimality understood that as a growing organisation, it wasn’t just our salespeople required to a present to customers.

As a direct result, through Optimality training we empowered our commercial, product and technical
teams to have the confidence, skill and structure to not only present, but add significant value to the sales process.

The impact not only increased revenues, but shorted our sales cycle. This was critical to achieving our goals.”

Business Development Director, Truphone
“Above and beyond. I felt very much out of my comfort zone but because of this I know I’ll make the changes.

Very good – one of the most worthwhile courses I’ve attended. Initially made me feel a little in awe as I questioned my whole presenting style but then gave me the knowledge and confidence to change and improve my presentations significantly.”

Senior Regional Sales Manager, Smoothwall

“The programme exceeded my expectations learning fantastic skills to use not only in larger-style presentations, but also in smaller settings.

Two days of training which involved theory and practice, interspersed with feedback, videos and discussions sessions – totally enjoyed it!”

“Exceeded my expectations. The focus on the individual’s style, rather than a generic/textbook style was very interesting.

One of the best tailor-made courses I have been on to date, with feedback giving me instant improvement.”

Retail Technical Manager, Rockline
“Course was excellent and has really helped to clarify what I need to improve when doing presentations. Very interesting and useful; all topics can apply to my job.

A must for anyone who has to stand up and speak in front of people – excellent!”

Contracts Manager, Vital Energi
“Optimality offered us a tailored approach and great customer service from the beginning.  They were professional, approachable and flexible, and the trainer Dave was perfect for the training we had in mind.  He built great rapport with participants around a very sensitive subject, and did this with respect, professionalism and humour.

The feedback from participants on the courses that Dave ran was always very positive and evaluations received showed that any learning objectives were delivered in a creative and informal way, providing a great learning experience for all our volunteers.”

Training Manager, Prostate Cancer UK
“The course helped me immensely to develop a confident, impactful presentation style and made me aware of many things I can add to complement my style and things I can prevent. I particularly enjoyed the session on body language and although scary, I found it useful to pitch in front of my peers. It was also good to know how to edit slides for maximum impact.

Very useful and relevant. I felt the training was not just useful from a career/vocational perspective, but also on a personal level.”

Regional Sales Manager, Smoothwall
“The course exceeded my expectations in that it provided me with new learning experiences in presentations on top of my experience and previous training.

Excellent – takes presenting to the next level!”

Head of Interconnect, Truphone

“Rockline Industries called on the expertise of Optimality to work on a specific presentation that I had to make to a large audience at an industry event in Minneapolis, USA.
I needed not only a top-up on my existing presentation skills and develop a style to engage such a large audience, but also how to make the delivery format entertaining and interesting in a relatively stable category.

Optimality spent a great deal of time and effort understanding my specific requirements and took me on a real journey. In only a handful of 1-2-1 sessions I created 30 minutes of memorable presentation.

The feedback on the format and delivery have been exceptional, and I mean it when I say, that I could not have done it without Optimality’s support and coaching before, during and after the event. Thanks to Sarah and the team.”
