Talking to Olivier Van Overbeek Raid Uk’s Training Director and Owner of Dive Life in Manchester.

Over a brew Oli and I discuss commercial and instructor aspects of the diving industry in todays tough economic climate!

Grab yourself a brew and listen to this interesting story. 

🔴 More about this week’s episode:
Olivier van Overbeek, who has been a RAID Instructor Trainer for six years and has worked in the UK and Malta in various consultant positions for RAID UK and RAID International, has now accepted the position of RAID UK & Malta Training Director.

RAID UK & Malta had been without a Training Director/Manager for over six months, and initially it didn’t seem like that role was that crucial. RAID International head honcho Paul Toomer is UK-based, but as he started working with James Rogers (Managing Director for RAID UK & Malta) on various projects, it kept becoming clear that the agency needed some structure in the RAID UK training department. Given that Oil was already working with RAID International on course design and consulting for the training department internationally, it seemed only logical for him to fill that void for the UK.
