Words can not describe how amazing the OPUS team are! I absolutely adore the work they deliver and champion OPUS in all capacities! I worked with OPUS as a host for the Commonwealth Social and it was an amazing experience. The team made me feel welcome informed and supported throughout the entire experience and in all honesty I don’t know what more I could ask for. In terms of both delivery and professionalism the team paid me almost immediately and I was taken aback because that is so uncommon. I can’t wait to see how they support producers in the future.  They are a gift to the Midlands. There’s nothing more empowering than to witness intersectional incredible women being amazing and it’s great that OPUS exist to champion that.
