Why did you choose OLIAD?
Someone I respected talked about OLIAD. As General Representative of a group of accountants, I have to support the transformation of the trade. Previously, customers came to the accountant, now it is the accountants who must reach out to the customer. It's a new approach.
To demonstrate that one can be an Expert-Accountant and at the same time have a commercial approach, I needed a consultant who is both a very good commercial businessman and able to adapt to the needs and challenges of our accountants.
What did you particulary like?
On this mission, several OLIAD consultants were to participate. I had a concern: Would all consultants have the same level of expertise as the one I had first met. I made a cold satisfaction survey of members who participated in the convention and it appears from this study that, regardless of the consultant, the level of satisfaction was very good. Comparing workshops made with another provider last year, satisfaction rates have soared by 30%.
One of the difficulties of this mission was the group heterogeneity, consisting of office bosses and Heads of Mission. These two populations have very different perceptions of the trade. It was necessary to "bring" to the two heterogeneous publics regarding their expectations and in terms of age.
The satisfaction survey revealed that managers were 95% satisfied in spite of these people being the most difficult to convince.
If you were to describe OLIAD mindset
It is a firm that has an intelligent approach because there is a great sense of listening and almost immediate adaptability.
This is true in the pre-conceptualization of the demand definition, but also in animation. This really surprised me: there were very different participants in the workshops and and consultants demonstrated relational flexibility and adaptability.
Finally, I felt accompanied at all times. The follow-up did not stop at the end of the training session, the project manager called me afterward. A relationship was born.
