"Volkswagen South Africa partnered with Optima in 2010 to develop a customised leadership development programme specifically aimed at high potential black portfolio management within its franchised dealer network. The programme was approved as a pilot programme initially. Based on the success of the pilot programme and the skills, professional input, guidance and management of the Optima team, Volkswagen South Africa agreed to expand the offering by more than tripling the intake on the 2nd wave which kicked off at the beginning of 2015. Volkswagen South Africa is pleased to be able to continue its partnership with Optima and values the service it has delivered to date."

"The content of their programmes and interventions has always been of high quality and because they have always ensured thorough line management input during the development phases, content has also been relevant and met client requirements."

"A growing need exists in emerging countries to support the growth of the small and medium sized enterprises (SME) sector through the development of a more organic bottom-up approach to SME development in order to provide jobs and drive economic growth. As an expert service provider Optima is one of few who has the experience to address the skills and capacity development needs of entrepreneurs and their financiers. Optima combines practical experience gained in several countries with best practise training techniques and a credible list of clients."
I attended the presentations done by the participants of an Afrilead Leadership Development Program and was impressed by the outcomes. They have grown dramatically in terms of their self-awareness, understanding of what it takes to lead others and what the business is about in a modern society. I wish to congratulate Optima on developing this program, almost perfectly in line with our requirements.
