A new ‘skills and technology’ based approach to enable women to reach their full professional potential.

The new Optimum Results’ Women Managing Business Series has evolved from our work with Women Business Managers over the past 26 years. ‘Designed and Delivered by Ambitious & Dynamic Women for Ambitious & Dynamic Women’, these programmes represent a unique and highly effective approach to optimising business and career opportunities for women in all types of businesses across the
globe.

 

While the core skills of business management remain constant regardless of gender, extensive research and our experience show that women face specific challenges. This programme is designed specifically to address those barriers so that women can succeed in business.

 

Both programmes in our Women Managing Business series build Management Skills on three fundamental foundations:


(i) Managing Self,

(ii) Managing Business, 

(iii) Digital Fluency.

 

 

Women who wish to start their own business and manage its early phase growth or Women managing an established business which has potential for significant Growth & Development (including exports).

This series of training represents a new approach to enabling women to achieve work/life balance – while engaging in a comprehensive self-development programme, learners will also discover how leading-edge technology can be utilised to optimise their performance.

The Optimum Results training webinar workshops are interactive, participative, engaging and enjoyable with modular content delivered by experienced and qualified subject experts.

 

Three-hour modules are delivered in two 90 minute blocks with a 15 minute break. 


Training focuses on building practical skills required by the Participants and assist the conversion of knowledge into action.

 

Training materials, templates and the programme workbook are of a high
standard and are sent to Participants a few days in advance of each module.

 

Networking, peer support and collaboration is facilitated and encouraged to continue far beyond the duration of the training and, as with all Optimum Results’ training programmes, Participants may avail of a “Help Desk” to address any particular challenges or issues.

 

An optional module “The Working Mother’s Tool Kit” may be included, and the programme may be adapted to be sector-specific involving appropriate sector expertise.

This training programme consists of up to 8 online sessions, with mentoring and offline learning included. 

 

The duration can be adapted to suit the clients needs, however we recommend a time-frame of 12 weeks to complete the full course.
