Details about NLP training, including courses, dates, suggestions and hints and tips.

The “Vic And Bob Of NLP” are Back!

I am happy to announce that Bob Spour and I are getting back together for a series of trainings.

I have known Bob for over 20 years and we have been running courses together since 2003 (between 2003 and 2007 we were co-trainers of The Birmingham NLP Training Academy, which I founded to offer quality NLP training to the midlands area).

We both decided it had been far too long since we ran a course together (the last one was in 2010!). So we have decided we are getting the band back together for some trainings in 2019 (and maybe beyond…)

These will be a unique experience and not to be missed! Even if you have trained with one or both of us before, I promise you will get something a little extra…

Starting in early 2019, dates and location are to be confirmed (but the first one is most probably going to be in South Wales/Monmouthshire area).

Go to www.bobandmatt.co.uk, or contact me for more details and to register your interest.

Due to family commitments I am taking a short break from running public courses. I am still offering one-to-one coaching and tuition and in-house training courses. Please contact me here to discuss them in more detail or to book.

Merry Christmas 2016

I just want to wish you a very Merry Christmas.

I know things have been a little quiet this year on the communication front, with no newsletters and very few blog posts, etc, so I want to reassure you that I am still here!  Although I have been a bit quiet on that front my trainings are, of course, still running and you can see my current 2017 training schedule here, including the updated and totally revamped, much more comprehensive NLP Coach course.

The office is now closed until 3rd January, I will deal with all queries and bookings when I return. You can continue to book on any of my upcoming courses in that time, and if you have any issues I will be checking my emails and be able to help you out.

Merry Christmas and Warmest Wishes,
Matt

News Update

My apologies for the lack of contact of late, my wife and I had a baby in March and those of you that have had children knows that it takes a little while to adjust to this new way of life. So to allow ourselves to do this I have taken a break from my blog and newsletter for a few months and just concentrated on my training courses and coaching clients.

This email is to just to let you know I haven’t forgotten about you and keep you up to date with what is coming up this autumn.

Core Training Courses

My core training dates for the autumn are:

NLP Practitioner

Cardiff Module 1: 09-12 Oct

Application Courses

Along with my popular Coaching Applications of NLP course, I am also relaunching two other applications courses. The feedback I continue to get is that people want information and tools about how to apply NLP to specific areas and fields. In response to this, this autumn I am re-launching two of my Application course:

Business Applications of NLP

The problem with teaching NLP for business is what we actually mean by the word “business”, do we mean leadership and management? Human Resources applications? Project management? Consulting? Training and development? Sales? Negotiation? Entrepreneurship? With such a bread range of specific applications within the businesses arena, how can you offer a business NLP training that will be relevant and useful to all these? most NLP courses claiming to be business courses focus on just one of these applications, often the bias of the experience of the trainer.

I have thought about this long and hard and decided the best way I could offer an Business Applications course that would really add value was to mapped the NLP tool I developed when working with organisations that will  give you clarity, insights and a way forward in a  broad range of situations and applications.  You won’t find this anywhere else, it is unique to this course.

For more details about this course, click here.

Sports Applications of NLP

Increasingly people are becoming more and more interested ion with “sports psychology” on the rise. At the highest level of sport, it is rarely the physically ability of the players which decides who wins or loses, but their mental ability. This course will show you how you can apply NLP and hypnosis to your sports training to maximise your results.

Over the years I have worked with a broad range of amateur and professional sports people, and from this experience I have developed a number of first principles,  tools and techniques that you will learn on this workshop.

Full details are here.

No dates are confirmed for these 2 courses as yet, they will be late autumn or winter. Please contact me to register your interest.

Other applications courses that I am dusting off and sprucing up for my 2016 training calendar are:

  • NLP and The Structure of Hypnosis: Hypnotic Applications of NLP
  • Entertainment Applications of NLP

Site Update

You may notice that my website is loading rather slowly, that is because something (that I don’t really understand) has gone catastrophically wrong behind the scenes. This, though, has given me the impetus to finally get rounding to doing the big site update I have been planning in the bit of downtime I have over the summer. Watch this space.

The blog will be starting up again soon as will the monthly newsletter.

That is all for now,
Matt

2015 NLP Training Course Dates

Finally! Below are my core 2015 training dates. My apologies for the delay in publishing them, I have been juggling and jiggling to fit them all in. New course will be added soon, including the relaunched “Business Applications of NLP” and the brand new “Advanced Language Pattern Mastery” to name but two.

No Gimmicks, No Sales, Just Lower Prices

Those of you that have known me for awhile know that I am constantly updating and tweaking my training courses to make sure they are up to date and offering the best possible course at the best possible value. As part of this I am getting constant feedback from trainees and clients and take this into account when designing courses. The overwhelming feedback I have received is that people want easier ways to train and lower prices, so I have responded to that by splitting the NLP Practitioner into two modules which will be run over weekends rather than midweek and I have cut costs to be able to reduce the price.

NLP Practitioner – New Format, New Lower Price

This my Flagship course, and in 2015 I have reconfigured the Practitioner to run in 2 modules and lowered the investment to £1499 including VAT. I have managed this by removing the iPad, but if you have a tablet device you can still receive all the learning materials in electronic format.
