By choosing to work from the Proactive Space, life will just be easier and more enjoyable. Why would you choose any other outcome?

Paul is the owner and director of Proactive NLP Ltd

Having successfully applied NLP across a wide range of business scenarios and built a reputation for a no-nonense approach to developing CEO's and future leaders. Paul is a much sought after executive coach and leadership consultant.

Committed to the development of Collaborative Business Relationships Paul and his colleagues have pioneered the creation of development programmes that support the building of a collaborative culture within complex organisational settings.

After years of getting clients to make changes in various settings and being asked to define what the formula for my success is I put down on paper what it is that I do that makes the difference.

The Proactive Space is the result.

The simplicity of the Proactive Space approach is immediately obvious to anyone that comes into contact with it. The breadth and depth of the approach creates long lasting awareness and understanding that will never leave you and will result in your perception of events being changed permanently. By choosing to work from the Proactive Space, life will just be easier and more enjoyable. Why would you choose any other outcome?

There is a Science and an Art to the Proactive Space. There is not a lot that is ‘new’ in the Science of this approach, the systems, ideas, processes, methodologies, tools and techniques have been around for decades and in some cases, centuries. The Art of this approach is the new bit. The art of the Proactive Space is in how the approach is delivered with Individuals, Teams and Organisations.

I am lucky to be able to work across a wide range of different situations in such a wide array of contexts.  As an INLPTA trained and ANLP Accredited Trainer of NLP you would expect me to deliver NLP training programmes such as NLP Diploma, NLP Practitioner and NLP Master Practitioner.  If you goal is to become an NLP Professional then Proactive NLP Ltd is definately for you.  

Outside of NLP Training Programmes I work in an array of business contexts delivering NLP based consultancy, training and coaching.  A common element I find in my work is creating the conditions for collaborative working to flourish and develop. Whether this is in the fields of construction, oil & gas, utilities or rail or in the increasingly complex and demanding environment of Health, Social Care and Housing.  The success of my approach is supported by my core suite of development programmes that I call The Proactive Space.  This is proving pivotal in creating the change of Attiudes, Behaviours, Cultures and Processes that are fundamental to long term sustainable and generative change.

As a result of the work I have delivered in these complex organisational contexts I have created powerful 'Business NLP' programmes that I call: Collaborative Working Practitioner (An NLP Practitioner level programme) and Leading a Collaborative Culture (An NLP Master Practitioner level programme).  These programmes are heavily oriented towards what is happening in the economy as we speak.  The need to work together and seek out extra value for clients has never been greater.  These programmes have been designed following 3 to 4 years of delivering collaborative working in some of the highest profile infrastructure projects delivered over the last 5 years.

Whatever you goal, Proactive NLP Ltd want to listen to you to understand how we can best work with you to get you to your goal. Call now on 07740506667 or send an email to: [email protected]


Following the successful delivery of custom designed NLP based programmes in the arena of major infrastructure projects I have created a sister company for Proactive NLP Ltd.  The new business is called collaborativeworks Ltd.  The business does what it says, the idea is simple.  collaborativeworks Ltd will collaborate with you to drive value through your project.  Ideally, you will be part of a joint venture or some other form of partnering set-up.  Your joint aim within the venture will be to deliver an integrated outcome for your client(s).  Our role will be to facilitate the development of the 4 essential quadrants of Attitude, Behaviours, Culture and Process that underpin effective collaborative working and collaborative relationships.

We can develop a programme with you in-house or we can align our Practitioner of Collaborative Working programme and our Leading a Collaborative Culture programmes to suit your requirements.
