2 day ‘Introduction to NLP’ with Anton at Prego restaurant on 2nd & 3rd December 2013.

Following the success of Anton Teasdale (see below for details about Anton) NLP presentation to Brighouse Link in April we are delighted to announce that we are running a 2 day ‘Introduction to NLP’ with Anton at Prego restaurant on 2nd & 3rd December 2013. We are running it at a bargain cost of £100 & Vat for the 2 days which will include a buffet lunch at Prego for each of the 2 days!

The workshop will be perfect for those who want to try a flavour of NLP. For those, who after the event, want to take things further, the training will count as part of the Practitioner qualification.

Peter Sleigh has trained for NLP with Anton and is now part way through doing his master Practitioner programme. It has had such an impact on Peter that he wanted to make it easily accessible to all his Brighouse Link colleagues.

To book please advise us as soon as possible by emailing Pat Sleigh at or by calling her on 01484 723783.

About Anton


Having a glowing reputation and successful track record working at the highest levels in blue chip companies and government is one thing. Genuinely making an impact on people’s lives through understanding what makes them tick and being able to draw out their skills in connecting and engaging is quite another! So when we met someone like this, who is also allergic to jargon and refreshingly practical, we were committed to introducing his skills to Brighouse Link!

Anton Teasdale, professional trainer, coach, Managing Director and co-owner of Hexagon, specialises in Teams, Leadership and Inspiration. The company works with well known clients like Virgin Media, HSBC, Sothebys and Yahoo!, through to charities like Just Giving and government.

Peter Sleigh is having a brilliant time learning all about how people work on his NLP journey which Anton leads.  He was inspired, not only with Anton’s experiences (which include working with Ministers like David Blunkett and Alastair Darling) but also his passion to travel anywhere in pursuit of gaining experience and learning from people and communications experts.  Most of all it was Anton’s curiosity, desire and skill for sharing hands-on tools with those who are keen to learn which impressed Peter.

Expect an engaging mix of insight, practical techniques, demonstrations and interaction on motivation, preparing and promoting ourselves and much much more!

Please note that tickets are non-refundable.

Presentation Skills Mini Masterclass – Martin Haigh  Lattitude 7 – 10am-12:30pm 17th January 2014

Martin Haigh from award-winning company Lattitude 7 is running  a Presentation Skills Mini Masterclass for Brighouse Link on 17th January 2014.  This is a free two hour workshop which is definitely not to be missed.  Please put the date in your calendar!   It will highlight Martin’s professional skills in  how to improve the way we feel when making a presentation in front of a large audience and how to translate these feelings into a positive and entertaining experience for the presenter and the audience.  More information will follow nearer the date.

Peter Sleigh has himself taken part in one of Martin’s workshops and found it to be a useful tool for making improvements when public speaking.  It helped Peter to see himself from the audience’s angle and gave ideas on how to make presentations more engaging to a mass audience.  He found it to be very useful and a lot of fun too!  Why not come along and see for yourself?

Martin Haigh is also holding a Stage Fright Presentation Skills workshop at the Great Victoria Hotel,  Bradford on 15th November and wondered if any members of Brighouse Link would benefit from coming along to this event.  The highly interactive session will be held from 8.30 a.m to 4 p.m and refreshments and lunch are included.  The cost is £145.00 per person.

All delegates will take home a framed certificate and will benefit from Martin’s skilful training in overcoming the fear of public speaking.  It will help improve confidence, and help in handling nerves prior to a presentation.

If anyone is interested please email Martin directly: or call Martin for more information on 07801 030 004 and Martin will be pleased to book you on to this event.
