Last night Strive PR hosted a Christmas party for our Isle of Man clients, associates and the media in our offices on Strand Street. Thanks to everyone who came out to make our night a great success (and quite a bit of fun!). And best wishes for the festive season to those of you who couldn’t make it. Thanks to everyone who has helped make 2008 a great year (so far!)
Like many people, I’ve grown pretty dependent on my Blackberry since I first got it last year. I use it as a phone, for email, as a diary, to access Facebook and Twitter. But also like many people I’m probably using less than ten per cent of it’s capability.
But I intend to change that this week, thanks to the Isle of Man Junior Chamber of Commerce and Sure. They’ve teamed up for to hold a ‘Blackberry back to basics’ event. It’s a hands on workshop where Sure’s experts will be on hand to help us to use all the bells and whistles of Blackberry.
Drop into the Sefton this Wednesday at 18.00 for a drink and a bite to eat while you learn the finer points of using your BlackBerry.
I was lucky enough a few years ago to spend some time investigating Neuro Linguistic Programming and how it can improve personal efficacy and deal with workplace issues. That’s why I wholeheartedly encourage everyrone to attend tomorrow’s Isle of Man Junior Chamber of Commerce seminar on NLP.
Speaker Justin Tipper, Certified Trainer of NLP has been using the practices in business and therapy for nearly a decade, and runs transformational training courses within the social care sector, within financial institutions, in sports, in shipping, and within Government. He’s previously worked in banking and fund management organisations in London, the Channel Islands and Isle of Man.
Justin says, “Some time ago, I was in a job that I found rewarding in part, but also frustrating, as I was aware that there had to be so much more I could do and achieve, if only I knew how. I discovered some information on NLP, and what others were doing with it, and immediately decided to book myself on a course to learn more. I have never regretted the opportunity that came my way, and now I have created a business in which I truly feel that I am doing my life’s work – that is, to directly assist people to be the best, the most excellent, the most outstanding, in their chosen fields. ”
Brief outline of presentation content:
- What is NLP? How and where did it start?
- Why is NLP relevant to business life, and to business people? Who is using it, and what results are they getting?
- What are the main ideas in NLP?
- How is NLP used to assist people in achieving excellence?
- What if I started using NLP techniques in my work, what would happen?
£10 members £12 guests and includes buffet and refreshments. Sefton Hotel, Douglas, Isle of Man.
