I was one of about 30 people who went to the NLP workshop "From a tool to a journey of self-discovery. It's up to you" on January 31st. The speaker was Alessandra Zocca, who is also the Secretary-General of PWI. Alessandra has a Masters degree in NLP and her passion for her subject was clear. I had heard some interesting things about NLP before, but most of the points Alessandra made were new to me. For the first time I really realised that the language we use to describe our experiences says a lot about which of our senses are the most important to us - I think I am a visual person and I always remember sunshine sparkling on the sea, and the seagulls swooping overhead. I learned that most communication is not verbal, and how to make communication easier and more effective. Altogether it was a very interesting and informative workshop. As always I met several interesting people before and after the workshop, and I enjoyed the refreshments, delicious nibbles provided by La Table d'Arthur - so thanks to them and to Alessandra.
