About Oliver


Oliver Ormston BSc (Hons), MSc, MBPsS

My name is Oliver and I am the founder of OPB Consulting. I now have several years working as a qualified Organisational Psychologist specialising in professional development. Before training as a psychologist and consultant I have had over 10 years working in the retail and manufacturing industries. In more recent years, I have worked alongside managers and other professionals facilitating them in the development and advancement of their careers.

I typically have 2-3 full working days per week available (sometimes more) as an Organisational Psychologist/Consultant. This is due to the fact I also work for Dixons Carphone as a Control Room Operative (operations). For this reason, I won’t accept any new clients working in the electrical/phone retailing industry due to a conflict of interest (e.g managers working for Amazon, Argos, Phones4U etc).

Every professional relationship should begin with a conversation. If you would like to discuss your organisation’s or your own professional development you can contact me here.
