"I found the course inspiring and extremely practical. Within a short space of time I had new skills to use at work and in my personal life. From a personal point of view it's as if a weight has lifted off me as I no longer feel anxious in what used to be pressure situations. And I've been amazed at how often I am able to use the techniques in a work environment with real ease - my colleagues are intrigued and many are interested in hearing more. The added bonus is that the techniques work with my two little granddaughters just as well as they do in the board room!" - Sheila McGuigan, HR Director, Martin Currie, Edinburgh

In 2013 while training front-end sales teams at the National Tourism Board.
(Note: This model naturally generates NLP Sleight of Mouth patterns in effective sequence).
“Taking part in this course was once of the most worthwhile things I have ever done.” - David Spink, Associate Director, Bank of Scotland.
“The course was fantastic and takes NLP into the next generation. The course is extremely comprehensive compared to anything else I have seen on the market. Thom’s style and delivery enables you to learn easily without any conscious effort and you just find yourself integrating the learnings into everyday life.” - Biodun Ogunyemi, Executive Business Coach.
“I’ve studied NLP Practitioner and Master Practitioner training in the past but this was something completely different for me. The skilful way in which Thom helped myself and other participants to easily experience profound changes was quite remarkable. I wholeheartedly recommend this amazing experience for your business, for your personal life, for you.” - Ian Robertson, Senior Learning and Development Officer, Edinburgh City Council
“I would call Thom 'the Armani' of NLP trainers, as there is absolutely no doubt that he is brilliant with his extensive subject matter knowledge. He has a very personable style of training and what sets him apart from his peers is the genuine concern he has for the development of his students. I hope many have the opportunity to train with him.” - Puneet Sachdev, Learning & Organisational Development Manager, Visit Scotland.
“There was only one NLP trainer that I trusted to give me the deepest possible learning at the most advanced level - and that was Thom Shillaw. I had met loads of good and bad NLP trainers over the years, but Thom was different. Thom has a level of understanding of the craft that only comes through a passion to learn and develop an expertise over a long period of time. Thom has a deep passion to really understand how to communicate and to influence with NLP and to make sure that his students come away from his training with an understanding of the subject that is far greater than the patterns and tricks of others. The main part of my professional life is in negotiation of commercial contracts and the knowledge of NLP at this level is truly a game changer.
Having now been trained by Thom Shillaw, I can honestly say that his training is now truly part of my daily life and I feel I can say that it is now part of who I am both in business and my personal life. Thanks Thom.” - Iain C. Steel, Senior Procurement Consultant, Xchanging Procurement Services.
“I've recently attended an NLP Programme that Thom delivered. Thom is a superb deliverer with an encyclopaedic knowledge of NLP and has a justifiable unshakeable confidence in what he is doing. I learnt and witnessed some incredible stuff and would recommend Tom to anyone.” - Howie Pearson, Subject Matter Expert, Learning Transformation, Lloyds Banking Group.
"Thom lives and breathes NLP and his course is completely different from anything else out there. We spent the whole course learning by osmosis, and by the end of it we were automatically using the new patterns conversationally and able to go out into our everyday lives with a whole new skill set. His passion and enthusiasm is captivating; his knowledge up there with the masters." - Susan Long, Events Manager.
