February 2006



A BIG thank you to Sara for helping me re-work the website layout this month,
your advice and suggestions has been of immense value. Tres bien; Merci!

I'm really excited (you can probably tell!) at finalising the content of a course which could have significant implications on business communications. This unique course entitled Convince! explores the skill of Critical Thinking (CT) with the combination of NLP.

Critical Thinking is a skill - analysing and assembling a reasoned case, piece or argument that is delivered formally, informally, written or spoken. Personally speaking, I am appalled at the level of debate in the media. Politicians disseminate short sharp sound bites with no effort required to think and Rolling 'News' presenters deliver bland questions in the line of "What's there a sense of... there at the moment?". Now this non-thinking has begun to happen in the workplace to various degrees. Combine this with exotic management-speak and metaphor and you really get your criteria in a twist.Be in on the start of something NEW! There is a definite structure to CT and NLP is the ideal tool in which to explore it. People do reason, but tend to reason out-of awareness and sometimes badly. Now you can begin to see the advantages of conciously, critically reasoning with all the advantages that it can bring to your business cases, your proposals and to your responses to other's proposals, plans and arguments. Get BUY-IN! If you put your compelling case in such a way, you cannot be refused! Therefore the investment for a place on the course in future will be substantial, however, the pilot seminar will be priced accordingly with the inevitable odd bump. teething and non-sequiteur. What will be taught will be in many cases, unique, and never will it have been learned in this way before. If you are familiar with the Meta and Milton Models, this is the complementary structure.

If you wish to order a free advanced copy of the brochure, click here now email to be put on the (e)mailing list or write now to 'Freepost Learning' (no stamp or address required) and state your preferences for a weekend or weekday course. The launch will possibly take place during March although ultimately this will depend on demand.


January 2006

Make 2006 THE year for YOUR personal or corporate change initiative. Brochures are
now available for instant download - no more 'waiting-for-the-post misery!'

Once you have considered for which course you want to apply, go to the Diary on the
events page which has been updated with the first four courses for 2006 - it was a real
feat to plan these two practitioner programmes to avoid most of the sports events this
year including the World Cup. More courses will be added early next year, including a
practitioner programme for both London and Edinburgh.

On the same events page, you can now book your course online with a credit/debit card
via a very secure 128 bit encrypted form courtesy of PayPal. Alternatively, you can print
a form to accompany a cheque for posting by mail. The choice is yours!

Ongoing Marketing Research: Please let us know whether there enough
demand for a practitioner programme to be held in the following locations
by registering your interest on this

1. UK - Bristol/Bath/Cardiff, Glasgow, Liverpool, Leeds/Bradford, York,
Europe - Dublin, Paris, Prague, Köln, Warsaw, Wien?

2. A three week retreat-sabbatical styled practitioner for you non-sporty types in July/August.

Please email your interest to one or both questions and let us know.

Any Questions? Don't forget you can call free of charge (within the UK) to 0800 019 0117 or email

An excellent piece has been written by Charles Faulkner about 'Models, Levels and Multiple Worlds'
in reSource Magazine. A very clear article setting out how some of the NLP strategies can be grouped
into specific categories.
