We are trying to adapt the Pitch ‘n’ Win event model in a coaching session and started the Pitch ‘n’ Coach event series. After successful first run on goal setting in January, we have been blessed with another great coach this month.
In the Pitch ‘n’ Coach #2 – Discover NLP with Richard Grannon on 19th February 2014, life coach and speaker Richard Grannon gave an awesome sharing to Neuro-Lingustic Programming (NLP).
Hailing from the United Kingdom, Richard founded the Dynamic NLP Group one year ago, and has been organizing over 30 interesting meetup events in Kuala Lumpur, facilitating interesting discussion, and growing the group to about 200 members.
At the start, each group member introduced himself or herself, and answered the question “What has NLP got to do with you?” Then Richard gave a half-hour animated presentation on NLP.

True to the Pitch ‘n’ Win philosophy where we want the audience to speak up, the whole group were asked to participate. Each of us responded to his talk by asking a question, giving comment or even presenting a real-world case.
After everyone has spoken up, the group were given 2 sticky notes for them to write comments for the 2 most interesting sharing in the group, and then stick the notes on the cloth of their selected members.
The two group members who got the highest number of sticky notes were Kriztel Kok and Lawrence Tan. Kriztel, who is an NLP coach and motivational speaker herself, shared her experience and exhorted the group to apply NLP for a greater life. Lawrence, an expert in intellectual property, presented his situations and received ideas and solutions from other group members.
Richard Grannon then spent some time responded to the sharing of all members. At the end, he gave a closing speech on his feeling for the group and his future direction. It was great to have him to bless us again before he leaves Malaysia for home soon in March.
