Monkey Puzzle Training and Consultancy

The 2018 Award for NLP in Business was awarded to Monkey Puzzle Training and Consultancy.

The business was founded in 2007 by Karen Meager and John McLachlan. The aim was to blend their extensive business experience in retail and financial services with a deep understanding of people and to help businesses maximise the skills and talents of their people and grow their businesses at the same time. John is a qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist and Karen is a UKCP registered Psychotherapist. Both are NLP Master Trainers and are actively involved in the NLP world.

Macmillan Cancer Care commented, “We picked Monkey Puzzle as we were really impressed with how much positive change they have brought to so many businesses. The fact that they have embedded mental health into all of their training really stood out to us. Their aim to have trained at least 200 specialist researchers and programme leaders to NLP Diploma standard by 2018 is really inspiring.”

For all awards apart from Lifetime Contribution, Macmillan Cancer Support were presented with a shortlist from which they made the final selection of the winner in order to make the selection based on the merits of the nomination.

NLP in Education Award

Joanna Harper

The Award for NLP in Education was awarded to Joanna Harper.

Joanna became involved with the charity Friends of Mombasa Children in Kenya when their work was still on a very small scale, sponsoring individual children and sending them items such as football kits, books and some other small luxuries their families would be otherwise unable to afford. She worked with a little boy whose struggles really struck a chord with her as he was the same age as her son at the time. In 2017, as a long-term donor, Joanna was offered a teaching position out there which, unlike in previous years, she was able to take up. She conducted some classes teaching English to the children, but most of her time was spent with the teaching staff taking them through NLP Foundation skills.

Macmillan Cancer Care commented, “Joanna’s trip to Mombasa and using her NLP experience to aid both teachers and pupils is incredible. The testimonials from some of the students were fantastic and Joanna seems incredibly passionate and dedicated to making a difference to their education.”

ANLP Inspiration Award

Thabiso Mailula

The ANLP team were so inspired when we heard that one of the NLP Award Finalists was intending to travel all the way from South Africa, having never left the Country before, to attend both the NLP Awards and the NLP International Conference! His dream of attending was made possible after receiving generous donations from his friends and previous clients and students as a token of their appreciation for his support in changing their lives. 

 

Karen Moxom, CEO of ANLP commented, "We followed his journey, excitement and 'countdown to London' on social media and wanted to acknowledge just how much he inspired and uplifted us with his actions. We are so grateful for his presence and the energy he brought to these events. He is an inspiration to all."

NLP Lifetime Contribution Award

Robert Dilts

For the Lifetime Contribution Award, voting was opened to the online NLP Community, The Leadership Summit and attendees at the NLP International Conference. A voting slip was in each goodie bag. Scores from all three sources have been counted, then combined, leading to the eventual winner.

The NLP Award for Lifetime Contribution was presented to Robert Dilts. Robert has been part of NLP from the beginning in the 1970s Robert’s continued input and connection to the whole NLP community is unparalleled. No-one else in the field has been so eclectically engaging for such a long uninterrupted period of time.

He has been one of the major contributors to the validation and systemization of NLP, adding numerous models and concepts. He continues to demonstrate evolving applications of NLP through publications and workshops and he has worked hard to promote NLP at the level of world-wide community. Robert was the first person to systematise NLP into some form of a discipline.

He was one of the greatest contributors to the field in the 1980s & 1990s. In the 1970s/1980s, Robert’s publications created the first blueprint for the field of NLP. Before that time, books had been written about aspects of a field, but not as a gestalt. His numerous publications over the past 40 years demonstrated and led an evolution in the field of NLP and a development of its applications.
