Optimum Results pride ourselves in establishing long-term partnerships with our Clients. We work with each individual business to get to know them and get a firm understanding of their unique processes and challenges. Each programme is then specifically designed to meet those specific challenges.
Throughout the programmes being delivered, Optimum Results remain flexible to adapt to any changes/shift of focus you might require. As a result of our partnership approach, our Clients are fully satisfied with the outcomes of the training programmes we deliver.
As part of a wider programme commissioned across the Middle East region including UAE, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, there was a requirement to build the management competencies of its SME sector and the skills of local SME Trainers and Consultants.
Through our partners IDI, Optimum Results were commissioned to design and deliver three initial programmes in two locations, Riyadh and Jeddah. These programmes were;
(i) a Growth Programme for Small Business Managers.
(ii) A Leadership Programme for established SMEs.
(iii) A programme to build the skills of local trainers.
The pilot phase saw 60 Companies and 30 Trainers go through the programme to be followed by 500 in the 2020/ 2023 period.
“Optimum Results and their online training / LMS division, SeamsCloud, has partnered extensively with International Development Ireland (www.idi.ie) on the successful design and implementation of customised training programs directly to and also on behalf of Government and Public Sector Agencies across the middle east region including, UAE, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. In this highly competitive and demanding market the high standards of both content and trainers provided by Optimum Results was instrumental in the success of the programs, the overwhelmingly positive feedback received from program organizers and attendees and our ability to win new business opportunities from satisfied clients. The level of competence and service we received were excellent and we confidently recommend them to any large private or public sector organisation.”
