Alan Johnson


Alan has trained over 250 members of Durham Constabulary in NLP. This approach has shifted culture and has contributed to Durham Constabulary being ranked as the number one performing police force in England. Michael Barton, Chief Constable of Durham Constabulary writes “Alan complimented all aspects of our leadership development work and designed a number of bespoke packages in order to deliver NLP in a way which we could use to improve the experience of our victims and witnesses.”

Equine Partners


Equine Partners was the brainchild of Fran Hibberd and Jo Marshall, who set up an Equine Centre to support families in difficult life situations to communicate better and support young people to have a better start through working with and caring for horses. Fran and Jo gave up their jobs to fundraise, set up and work at Equine Partners. Families, many funded by local authorities, report big life improvements because of the combination of horsemanship with NLP coaching.

First Position


Kevin & Rita began working with ACEVO (Association of Chief Executives of Voluntary Organisations) in 2010 to develop Leaders and raise the bar of leadership across the charity sector in the UK. They developed a set of values-driven Leadership Competencies against which sector leaders are measured in 360 activities. They have built up a comprehensive set of data enabling them to benchmark against key NLP paradigms and principles. This profiling tool has been used in over 100 voluntary sector organisations.

Frank Pucelik


Frank Pucelik works with 3 colleagues in the Ukraine, saving thousands of young drug addicts and getting no money, or support for their efforts other than the personal satisfaction of accomplishing an impossible task against all perceivable odds. He is also involved in NLP assisted programs for PTSD, providing ongoing support for the entire nation’s professionals that are responsible for saving Ukraine from tearing itself apart. This includes training more than 5000 medical professionals, social workers and soldiers in the skills required to work with PTSD

Martin Snoddon


Martin Snoddon uses his experience of reconciliation and rehabilitation following ‘the troubles’ in Northern Ireland to mediate conflict resolution between communities and groups using NLP-based skills. He has travelled to Ukraine, Russia, Haiti as a facilitator with compassion and courage to de-escalate violence and conflict and to enable people to find a path beyond violence or dispute. Martin enters situations where war, gangs or natural disasters have broken down the usual structures and social norms.
