Last Thursday night 6 representatives of GMG went to hear Chris Helder speak to an audience of approximately 90 people at Spoons Riverside, arranged by Swan Hill Inc.  Chris is a certified practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming specialising in advanced communication and behavioral modelling.

Chris provided us with a high energy and entertaining account of personality characteristics, body language and how we can identify these.  This is designed to help us to be more aware of our own personality traits and also of those around us.

He also taught us his useful everyday communication techniques that can help us not only personally but professionally based on his FORD principle – Family, Occupation, Relax & Dreams (vulnerability).

Chris was an informative, entertaining and insightful speaker and I'm sure everyone who attended learned a great deal.
