I asked Monkey Puzzle to deliver the NLP Practitioner Certification in my organisation in 2015 to support my team in delivering a continuous improvement programme which involved lots of stakeholder management, negotiations and cultural change management. We were very skilled at the process and technical aspects and wanted to get equally skilled at the people side of things. It was fantastic, enlightening and truly experiential. The learnings are totally applicable to all aspects of both work and personal life. This culminates in a real ability to understand both yourself and the behaviours of those you interact with. Karen and John have an amazing wealth of applicable knowledge and their delivery style is engaging and conducive to a relaxed atmosphere. Karen and John are excellent coaches with a fantastic ability to be both nurturing and stretching. A huge thank you.Kevin Rendle. Head of Operational Excellence at Aldermore Bank.

We commissioned Monkey Puzzle to undertake bespoke training for part of the team involved in our Cultural and Behavioural Change programme. They really understood the brief and importantly designed and delivered to it exactly, whilst adding inspiration and true insight. They met individual learning needs at the same time too, giving the people in the team a real boost of passion and purpose. If you're serious about organisational change then you're in the right hands with Monkey Puzzle, I'd say.John McConnachie, Monouthshire County Council. Principle Training Manager.
John has been working with us as a leadership coach for over a year and I have already seen a significant change in the people that he's been working with. John is different from other coaches I've worked with in the past. Through his business knowledge, NLP and therapeutic approach to the whole person, he really makes a difference to their self-awareness, confidence and ultimately business results. John has a truly holistic approach and is a very warm and engaging person who is great fun to work with. I'm delighted to be working with Monkey Puzzle training and look forward to working in partnership to continually develop our leadership team.Pauline Buckley, Cath Kidston Ltd.

From a senior management point of view, we noticed the difference in how the management teams became more proactive, recognising that if something was not working they could do something about it and gaining the self-confidence to act after the training with John and Karen. The process of working with the teams as a group meant they supported each other and this support has continued on into the workplace. The cost to the charity was a gamble, as funding has been cut, but the positive results have meant the gamble has more than paid off.Claire Hayward, CEO of Freeways.
I first met Karen & John on the NLP Diploma course in 2012 and then embarked on the NLP Practitioner course in 2013. I would not hesitate to say that these courses have made a significant and positive impact on my career and my personal life.

I found the delivery of the course by Karen and John to be exemplary and what impressed on me most was their intuition. They always seemed to know how I felt throughout the course and what buttons to push to ensure that you got a full understanding of the course content.

Karen and John are excellent trainers and I look forward to attending future courses with Monkey Puzzle. Furthermore I have enrolled two of my senior managers on the Diploma course later this year. Gurjit Panesar - Managing Director at MRS Solutions.
I chose to do NLP Practitioner with Monkey Puzzle to improve my skills at work and because Monkey Puzzle had a good reputation. I came out with my outcomes not only met but superseded. I felt like a better person so was able to perform better in both my work life and personal life and found out what my personal talents are.

I have worked with a number of others who have been through the NLP Diploma with Monkey Puzzle and they are all filled with praise for the work Karen and John do and cannot recommend them enough. Everyone they have worked with within our organisation feels they are better at their roles because of the time spent with Karen and John.

They always had time to answer my questions even after the course had finished and I am looking forward to being able to spend more time with Monkey Puzzle doing the NLP Master Practitioners course. Claire Hayward - Strategic Director at Freeways
I have undertaken two training courses led by John and Karen - NLP Diploma followed by NLP Practitioner. John was an inspirational trainer who ensured that all of the course attendees had a great learning experience and moved forwards towards their goals. He has amazing insight, is funny and motivated everyone to attain fabulous outcomes. A truly wonderful trainer and person. Karen is a fantastic trainer. The courses that Karen and John have designed are fantastic. The personal development results that I achieved from both the NLP Diploma and Practitioner were amazing. My skills in NLP have also increased significantly.

I would (and have) recommended Monkey Puzzle to a number of people. In my mind the best investment in myself that I have ever made. Mark Adams - Sales Director at Bright Cloud.
