Optimising Operations For Change-Makers

Are you spending more time firefighting operational issues than leading positive impact?
More time managing projects and people than driving the change the world needs?
Or more money on fancy business systems that don’t seem to fix the problem?

Optimo is Here to Help!

We support trailblazing organisations leading positive change.

We help you do what you do, better.

Get the Time, Freedom, & Clarity to Lead

To accelerate your impact, your organisation needs to operate at optimum efficiency.
That means:

Enabling your people to be the best versions of themselves at work. Increasing their productivity, enhancing their motivation, supercharging engagement, and maintaining a positive culture as the organisation grows.

Implementing processes that improve the way everything works without losing focus on delivery. Effective business processes that mean less management and more impact.

Applying technology that supports your aims. Systems and infrastructure that talk to each other so that your team can save time, money, and stress.

Having the information required to run your operations and measure progress available when and where you want it to be.

Ideally, all of this should happen without the need for your constant time and attention.
And it can.

Through Optimo’s strategy implementation, change management support, professional project management, and business optimisation solutions, you can drive productivity through all four of the areas above.

This will give you the freedom to focus on your role as a leader and truly making a difference in the world. Which is why you chose a purpose-driven path in the first place, right?

Your Bespoke Team of Business Experts

Optimo boosts business operations for entities of all shapes and sizes: universities, charities, social enterprises, community interest companies, and sustainability-focused for-profit businesses.

With years of business experience behind us, we understand how frustrating it can be to know that something isn’t quite right in your operations, but not have the hours or inclination to dig into the details, find out what’s going on, and figure out why it’s happening.

We don’t want you wasting your time, effort, and resources trying to solve these issues alone. We’d rather you concentrate on creating a better future for us all.

So, we’ve dedicated our team’s extensive business expertise to providing clarity, solving your operational challenges, and optimising your organisation holistically.

For each of our clients, our founder Danielle Heward assembles a bespoke team of business improvement experts. Their skills are chosen to suit your organisation’s specific goals and needs. We then partner with you to co-design solutions that function the way you need them to.

With our objective 360˚ view of your operations, we ensure all business improvements are effective and enhance efficiency from all angles.

Danielle oversees every project and is always available to answer any questions or concerns you might have.

What Our Clients Say

Danielle has shown an exceptional understanding of our charity through the work and time she has put into the project. The process that was followed was easy to navigate and come to terms with. It built on the foundations we already had in a way I would never have thought of and meant the outputs produced were perfect for our needs. The benefit of the project is to enable us to have excellent oversight and governance to ensure we are achieving objectives and working towards our aims, meeting all our legal responsibilities in an evidenced way.

Marie Peacock, Chief Executive Officer – Yorkshire’s Brain Tumour Charity

Danielle built great rapport with the board level stakeholders she engaged with and collaborated with them very effectively to identify a roadmap for improvements and a business case for change in their care and workforce management and processes. It was great to work with her, and I hope to get the opportunity to do so again soon!

Gareth Murphy, Co-Founder & Director – FluidIT Consulting

Danielle has been working with Leeds Trinity University on developing several substantial business case proposals. This has required working with colleagues from across the institution. Danielle has done this with significant skill keeping the projects to time and creating a shared sense of teamwork. I fully recommend Optimo. I hope to carry on our work with them in the future.
