About your Trainer:
Paul Bennett B.A. (Hons)., Dip Ed., Grad Cert NLP., is an internationally recognised trainer of NLP.
Paul is a former teacher who was fascinated by how people learn and who dedicated himself to discover ways of making the process of learning simpler.
Paul’s search led him to find in NLP a precision tool containing models of learning which are efficient, effective and easy to apply.
Paul experienced his first NLP Practitioner Certification Training in 1990 with Marvin Oka, a renowned NLP trainer who had been trained by Wyatt Woodsmall and Tad James. He subsequently received training in classroom applications of NLP with Michael Grinder, brother of John Grinder and who specialised in applications of NLP for students and teachers.
In 1990 Paul began a consultancy business in NLP and since then he has used NLP widely in private consultations and in the trainings he has conducted for staff of companies and government departments.
From 1995 to 1997 Paul trained with Jan Kelly and Gary Yardley who are two superb NLP trainers, and who were trained by Richard Bandler to train NLP trainers outside the United States. During this time Paul became a master practitioner of NLP, then a Certified Practitioner of Ericksonian and Satir Patterns and finally a Certified Trainer of NLP.
When Chris and Jules Collingwood of Inspiritive Pty Ltd hosted Dr John Grinder and Carmen St Clair-Bostic in Sydney in1998 Paul attended their celebrated “Metaphors and Butterflies” workshop and received training in the crafting and delivery of metaphor.
In 2002 Paul re-trained in New Code NLP with five magnificent trainers of international stature, Jules and Chris Collingwood of Inspiritive who were, and remain, students of John Grinder, Roger Deaner of Leadervision, Steve Andreas, formerly of NLP Comprehensive and Dr John Grinder.
Since1997 Paul has been conducting NLP Practitioner Certification Programmes in Adelaide. Paul espouses the view that NLP practitioners be able to practise NLP on themselves first and them be able to extend the benefits of NLP to those closest to them and then, to colleagues and clients.
Paul’s training sessions are interactive, participative and fun and he gives his students a through experience of NLP as he believes that his students must be able to do more than talk about NLP, they must be able to do it. He holds a Graduate Certificate in Neuro-Linguistic Programming, the new post graduate qualification in NLP.
