Developing our capabilities and market knowledge through investment in our people

People

Optimat recognises that our consultants are our primary assets. Since the company was established in 1989, we have built up a solid team of professionals with broad technical and commercial expertise who are able to advise clients on business and economic development across a wide range of industries, markets and technologies.

Our consultants are all highly qualified in their specific technical and commercial disciplines, and as a team we can boast several MBAs. Consequently, all members of our team appreciate their ability – and responsibility – to positively influence the sustainability of our customers and the wider markets they serve.

Sustainable growth

A company’s skill-set is never static and Optimat therefore plans to continue to grow its business through the recruitment of experienced consultants and expert associates who are able to establish a good working rapport with our clients, and deliver insightful and high-quality results.

By seeking out experienced professionals who have complementary industrial, technical and commercial expertise, Optimat continues to expand its skill-set and capabilities across a wide range of areas, including:

  • Business Development
  • Business Planning
  • Due Diligence Analyses
  • Economic Impact Assessment
  • Innovation Diversification
  • Investment Appraisal
  • Market and Product Exploitation
  • Policy Review and Development
  • Technology Commercialisation

Our preferred approach is to work in partnership with our clients in a mutually supportive project team that facilitates effective knowledge transfer and ownership of outputs. This is particularly important when working with multiple partners on multi-stage projects, with several strategic steps, and diverse reporting requirements.

Optimat operates to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards. The company is also an active member of a number of respected professional bodies including: the Institute of Management Consultants, the Institute of Consulting, the Institute of Economic Development, the Chartered Institute of Marketing and the Engineering Council.
