NZANLP is a non-profit Incorporated Society run for its members by an annually elected committee. The Committee are all volunteers and are involved because we are passionate about NLP and want to see NLP thrive in New Zealand. Here is some more information about us:
Meet the Committee
I am passionate about NLP because it gave me my life back after 11 years of chronic illness! I now love using NLP to help other people recover.
I chose to be on the NZANLP committee because I wanted to find ways to grow the community - I really wanted to oversee the creation of this new website, network more with other similar organisations, and provide more online interest groups to keep our members engaged and supported.
If your question doesn't link directly to one the other committee member's specific areas below, then it might be me that you want to contact me: email@example.com
