I first encountered David Hales and the team at Optical Design when we both joined the same business networking group. At the time, David was launching Biz Adelaide and he ran a competition with a free video promotion as the prize. I submitted an entry on behalf of Southern Junction Community Services and much to my delight, I won.
When I met with David to discuss how claiming my prize would work, he generously brainstormed other promotional ideas for our not for profit, one of which was the notion of a Christmas Greeting video including our various corporate partners. This would be made available through utube and each organisation would promote the video to its own networks – great cross-marketing and an innovative idea! I was so impressed that I decided to contract David to undertake this project with me almost immediately.
The project involved several hours of filming in different locations, largely with groups of people who had never been on camera before. David was on time, organised, attentive (these people were our Corporate Partners and we wanted them to have a great experience) and professional at all times. He produced the final product quickly and used his experience and initiative to provide a great result. The feedback from everyone involved and who saw the video was very positive.
In January, David graciously allowed our CEO Graham Brown to have a slot on Biz Adelaide. This was a great opportunity for us to showcase who we are and what we do. Again, David was highly professional and supportive throughout. We’ve put a link to the interview on our website.
I am delighted to have had the chance to get to know David and his team and look forward to continuing to work with them as opportunities arise.

Before David asked me to do the Tips from the Top segment for Biz Adelaide I had no idea how to go about something like that. I mean, we’ve all seen interviews on TV with Ellen or Oprah. The guests always seem so relaxed and professional. David and his team at Optical Design made me feel just like that when producing the segment. It was so easy and being guided through the experience allowed me to be relaxed and enjoy the moment. Some time later someone told me they had seen me on TV – well it was on Biz Adelaide – and he thought it was really great. This experience proved to me the power of social media and I can thoroughly recommend David and his team for video presentations – they are awesome.
