See all of our people

ODI appealed to me as a training provider because of the breadth of experience, qualifications and knowledge of their presenters. Their management team ensured that they understood our needs before suggesting a solution, and their trainer was able to ensure a standard programme was tailored specific to the way we operate. Participants found the content to be well-structured, relevant and useful. We value a training provider that takes the time to understand our people in order to match them with appropriately qualified and experienced trainers.
