Our TrueDil™ course is developed in a narrative form complete with diagrams and case studies from around the world. 

It incorporates material that appeals to at least the 3 main NLP learning styles,(Visual , Auditory, and Kinesthetic) .

The course changes over time in line with legislation, trends, and events so that the learning process continues after the course until it reaches a point where something new is required.

There are exercises and the entire philosophy is future focussed, generic, and uses a number of frameworks that take into account cultural differences, mindsets, and legal frameworks.  

At the end of each course module, there is a bullet-pointed session summary to consolidate your learning. 

The bundle price for this course is £2,500, which includes:

  • 20 sessions
  • 5 email consultations
  • 20 minutes of phone consultation
