Optu.tv has a prestigious track-record of work with a wide range of people and organisations. We have produced short films and delivered media training to many of the world’s top athletes (Olympic and World Championship medallists) people like Usain Bolt driving a Ferrari in Monaco, the ‘living legend’ Haile Gebrselassie, ‘Athlete of the Year’ David Rudisha and many more.
We have delivered training to voluntary organisations such as Wigan Young Carers through to blue-chip global giants such as BAE Systems.
We work with individuals – often Chairs of companies or Chief Executives or sports stars; or with groups – executive or sales teams, or young people who want to build their confidence as they step into the world of work or training.
We have created THE ACE PROGRAMME – because the ACE in your business hand, and in your career, is you. ACE stands for Authority, Confidence and Expertise.
Each ACE Programme is tailored to the specific needs of our clients. Every individual, every organisation has differing issues. We take account of that.
Our courses, delivered ‘on-site’ or in our own training rooms, are fully interactive…and they are FUN! We all learn much more easily when we are enjoying ourselves.
Each individual gets a video record of their training, plus full training notes. All our programmes carry a full money-back guarantee to give you complete peace of mind that you are investing in the very best communication skills learning bar none.
Communication Skills/ Presentation Training
The key to success in business and in your career is relationships.
It’s proven that you have JUST SEVEN SECONDS to make a positive first impression.
Within that time, people make no fewer than ELEVEN judgements about you. In business or career terms these are whether you are credible, likeable and trustworthy.
The ‘holy trinity’ of success are the words KNOW, LIKE, TRUST
If you can establish this bond instantly, then you will succeed. If not, then you will crash and burn.
Organisations which do not have effective internal relationships from shop-floor to the boardroom and external relationships with clients and stakeholders will not flourish. In fact, quite the opposite.
The ACE Programme will teach you HOW to create the platform for success.
