Following a fantastic taster training session where Scott allowed us to watch him in action, listen to what NLP was all about and gain a feel for how he could give us the NLP techniques to enhance our Leadership and Management Skills.
Linear Recruitment Ltd committed to his NLP Leadership & Management Skills 5 day course in 2013.
Sixteen senior staff at Linear Recruitment, from Principal Consultant’s right through to Directors attended the course which involved 5 full days over a 5 month time frame.
During that time we saw and heard about many individual successes including an increase in the average number of placements per week, closing deals with clients we had previously struggled to convert and improved relations with our teams therefore seeing an increase in sales overall.
Our course assignments also challenged us to use our new skills in the workplace and resulted in a collective total additional savings, in excess of £80,000.00 from the team, through applying what we learned!
In fact we have seen a 33% increase in GP from 2012 to 2013 and identified and promoted 5 members of staff to Regional Managers to allow us to focus on our strategic development and continued expansion of the business.
Seeing these developments within the business would be enough of a reason to recommend this training to others.
It is also important to add that every single person finished the course with a positive change in attitude and much more confidence.
You can feel this positivity throughout our business and all of the people who attended have said this has been the biggest changer for them both in their work and home lives.
We are looking forward to working with Scott again and have already booked 9 days with him for next year so that by the end of 2014 every person at Linear Recruitment will have received Scott’s NLP training.

Unemployment was 3m+
So, I got some cash together and bought a knock-down price suit and went knocking on factory doors, and after around 3 weeks a kindly Production Manager who I am still in touch with to this day ‘liked my style’ (I assume he wasn’t referring to my suit) and gave me my lucky break.
I started my career pushing two buttons on a machine.
Fast forward a few years and I am Production Supervisor, responsible for two departments, managing 30 people and feeling the stresses and strains of life at the thin end of the wedge.
Looking for the skills, not to manage production, numbers, planning etc, but to motivate and manage teams across multiple shifts, and all of the ‘baggage’ that comes with this.
That’s when the second and most important lucky break came - I was ‘sent’ on a ‘Scott White Course’
The first day its fair to say changed my life forever. My spider senses are tingling and the hairs on the back of my neck stand to attention as I recall that event.
I was introduced to ideas that I, if I gave them a go, could help me manage myself even more effectively, and in turn help me understand and manage others even more effectively.
I was blown I away!
Again, fast forward a few years (and numerous ‘scott white injections’) and I am Production Manager (remember with no formal qualifications at this point) earning a small fortune, and driving that business - the one whose door I knocked on all those years before - to record outputs, profits and harmony across the workforce.
If I shared that over a six month period in 1998, the lads and lasses in the factory were earning more in Profit Related Pay per month than their basic monthly wage, that illustrates the magnitude of what happened - and all through
thinking, communicating and acting in new ways.
Fast forward a few years later when I have my own business - Develop-u.
In year 2 - a new start-up - leading a team of 14 employees and 30 associates, we generated £505k in revenue. My wife was pleased as we had a 6 week ‘business trip’ across Australia with the kids.
Seriously, all achieved by my applying simple tools and techniques around how I manage myself to enable me to
effectively work with others, entering ‘their world’ tapping into their motivations, understanding what makes them get up in a morning, and channelling that into focus and direction for my business.
I was fortunate also to get the Uni education along the way, and, if success were measured by the direction we take and how we get there, I know now that from those humble beginnings, to a working successfully in Global role in a
multi-national company working in Europe, USA and South America - it’s not my formal education that has helped my ‘success’, but my ability to successfully manage myself enabling me to enter their ‘world’ tapping into their motivations, understanding what makes them get up in a morning, and channelling that into focus and direction for OUR business.

I've written this recommendation of your work to share with other LinkedIn users.
Details of the Recommendation: "NLP...how doubtful I was of its value until several of my Clients started to talk about it and the benefits for their teams and organisations they worked in.
One name came up time and time again and that was Scott White so I decided to attend one of his courses.
What a revelation, I was sold on it ....Scott is a fantastic trainer, very down to earth and kept my attention from the minute the course started....not easily done!
I can't wait to go on further courses that Scott is running"

I wanted to touch base with you and provide you with my new job title and brief description of my new role.
My new job title is “Associate Director of HR, Organizational Development & Training” for the University of La Verne.
My official job description indicates I am responsible for providing leadership, direction and consultation in the areas of Organizational Development, Training, Performance Management, Employment, Employee Relations and Workforce Planning - creating competitive and innovative program and systems designed to attract, integrate, and retain a diverse and highly competent faculty and staff.
My interpretation is that I am responsible for making a positive difference and inspiring a culture of excellence.
Plus, it’s much easier to remember than the earlier sentence!
I begin my new role on Tuesday, and I am beyond thrilled for this new adventure in my life.
As promised, here is a short statement that you can use on your website and working with any clients.
“As I reflect back upon our meeting for the very first time, all I knew is that I wanted some of what you had.
At the time, I really didn’t know what “it” was, but I could tell it was something special that could change my life and make me a better person. NLP turned out to be that and much more for me.
I eagerly embraced every moment I had in class sessions with you not just because it was my job, but because I really believed in what you had to share and what NLP had to offer.
NLP helped me transform my language with myself and others to be more positive, allowed me to build effective relationships with anyone within seconds after meeting them, and provided me with a tool to handle any setbacks and challenges life would throw my way over the next several years.
Like a sponge, I read the books you recommended, practiced changing my language and eliminated certain words from my vocabulary, such as “try”, and in the process, began to evolve into a much more confident person in all aspects of my life.
A year later, I tackled the biggest personal challenge of my life – becoming healthy and fit. In four months, I successfully lost 30-pounds and have changed my entire lifestyle because, I can.
No longer am I a victim to circumstances, I am victorious in anything I set my mind to.
I recently landed my “dream job” and will be the Associate Director of HR, Organizational Development & Training for the University of La Verne in California.
The secret I had over all other applicants was my knowledge of NLP.
I successfully used it in all three of my 15-person panel interviews and in delivering a 30-minute training presentation to an entire audience of evaluators.
My training presentation was on “Building Rapport” and I shared with them the power of state of mind and the three languages – visual, auditory, and kinesthetic.
NLP has become a way of life for me, and more importantly, I now call you, Scott White, my dear friend for life!”
In the past two years, you have successfully facilitated over 40 NLP Leadership Development sessions with more than 200 line managers and leaders within the Firth Rixson US Rings Division. During this time, we have experienced phenomenal results with growing the confidence and presentation skills with our leaders, improving internal communication skills among all levels of employees, and strengthening our external communications with our customers in the marketplace. Additionally, many of our employees have personally benefited from your techniques to better reduce personal stress and enhance relationships.
During our first wave of training, participants were challenged to identify 1% improvement ideas that they could immediately implement to help improve the bottom line. We were blown away when participants returned with suggestions that collectively identified $1 Million in cost savings. This kind of breakthrough thinking was exactly what our organization needed at that time and something we continue to reap the rewards of. In a recent survey, 100% of our employees responded that their knowledge and skills have improved as a result of participating in the NLP Leadership Development Program with you. Participants who have attended your sessions continue to echo similar comments such as: “This training has been invaluable”; “My confidence in front of groups has greatly increased”; and, “This course has changed my life for the better”.
What I continue to appreciate about your training is that you can actually see employee’s gain more confidence with speaking in public and presenting. You can also feel the morale shift as employees apply their skills in the work place and practice the NLP communication techniques to build rapport with each other and positive connections with our customers. Some of the most rewarding feedback from participants is to hear stories of how they have been able to utilize the NLP techniques to manage personal stress and improve relationships with loved ones outside of work.
Your unique approach blends a highly successful career in the business world along with your passion for teaching NLP techniques in a practical and immediately applicable approach. Our employees value that you understand the day-to-day challenges and frustrations that they face as leaders and you effectively equip them with immediate skills to apply in their jobs.
I personally continue to enjoy the opportunity to partner with you in these sessions and look forward to the ability to constantly learn, change, and grow in the process.

At that point I was semi hooked. It wasn’t until I worked directly with Scott in bringing NLP in my Human Resources organization that I fully appreciated his value as a trainer, coach, and facilitator, but also as a great friend. Scott taught the Human Resources team in the US how to use NLP to select candidates, be more effective coaches within our respective organizations, communicate better in our day to day interactions at work and at home, and perhaps most important for me personally - - how to self motivate and achieve what I want as an individual in life.
Rarely is it the case where what you learn in a work setting can have an impact in one’s personal life. What Scott has taught me is just as much a life learning lesson experience as a practical business tool. I wish I could bottle Scott and keep him in my pocket for when I need him. Scott doesn’t just disappear after he concludes his session. He provides a unconditional commitment to be available to anyone, at any time, for any reason. In essence what you get with Scott is a friendship and a partnership for life. Now that’s powerful!

I am writing to tell you of the unbelievable success the team and I have experienced since attending your tailored, in-house designed, NLP Leadership and Advanced Presentations Course.
Let me start with the team, I am ecstatic to report that the team has delivered back to back record months with the highlight in September achieving 23% ahead of budget! (October is looking like another record).
This result is so significant because at the end of July the team were behind budget by 10%, we are now ahead of our YTD position, this was unthinkable only 8 weeks ago.
I assure you market conditions have not got any easier!!
This fantastic turn around I put down to a few things, belief that it is an achievable goal, this belief has been driven through the entire division, the team has bought in to the success that we know we will achieve, a state of mind which was previously missing.
In addition understanding our client and prospects language preference has meant that our conversion rate has improved by 15%.
This is really impressive because our previous belief was that this could not improve due to our intelligence which told us we were already out performing the competition by 20%.
An additional benefit is the great sense of team and support that has come about from the learning experience that we have all undergone. The upshot of the above is I now look forward to a record year within my division, when only 3 months ago I was looking at a below budget performance.
On a personal note I am glad to let you know that I have just given my first presentation since our time together. After a couple of bad experiences this had been identified as a definite black spot for me and an area which I knew I had to invest time in to correct.
I have just delivered back to back presentations over 2 days to an audience of +150. I am absolutely thrilled to let you know that I nailed both!!
The techniques that you taught really stood me in good stead, in particular remembering a good positive experience and the use of the 3 languages. I cant wait for the next opportunity, a massive change from a few months back. Scott thank you so much for opening my eyes and getting me started on this journey. I look forward to continued improvement and learning.
Please feel free to give customers or prospects my details and I will happily discuss the benefits I have experienced with them.
Thanks again and I look forward to the next time.
