1997 Trainers' Training Student Evaluations
(every student in the class is represented here).
(trainers training class size is limited to 10 students)
"The more I train with Rex, the more amazed I
become at the depth and range of his abilities. At first, I might
not have fully appreciated the way the trainings are adjusted
to bring out the best in every student. I have seen transformations
in people I would have had difficulty believing before coming
to train with Rex. And what's more, I have experienced those transformations
myself. This is the 3rd time this year I have traveled 5000 miles
to train at IDEA Seminars. I have not regretted a second of any
of it. Trainers Training has taken me far beyond where I expected
to be - and I had high expectations to begin with. I have changed
from hesitance to enjoyment, from indifference to confidence.
I have found the program has also been wonderful in bringing together
my NLP skills to a point where I can use them practically and
congruently from public speaking, to one-on-one, to changing my
own states easily and naturally. The class - the colleagues, the
co-conspirators, have been a great source of help and inspiration.
The program let us grow and support each other in so many ways,
and have so much fun in doing it. Once again, I regret that I
have to leave and that the time has passed so quickly. Thank you,
Rex and Carolyn. A truly

"(Rex is) dynamic, energetic, expert in many
fields. Caring - excellent, excellent teacher. The training and
trainers were AWESOME!!! I would recommend this to anyone who
is interested in public speaking and/or NLP. Rex makes learning
fun, easy and challenging all at the same time. He teaches skills
so that I can use not only in public speaking but with friends
and family. My life has improved greatly since taking classes
form IDEA Seminars. Don't waste your time and money going to other
NLP seminars. I know I've experienced several. IDEA Seminars is

"Rex is a combination of so many wonderful things.
He has a presence that will captivate you, his timing is impeccable.
He is totally prepared and knowledgeable. Rex brings an energy
and vitality and sustains it for 10-12-14 hours each and every
day. His range of emotional expression both physically and verbally
are not only amazing but also totally appropriate for the moment.
On the first day of Trainers Training, I was brand new to speaking
in front of groups. Rex and his staff made me feel totally comfortable
and with each day and each exercise I felt more and more comfortable.
Even when speaking to the guys - I also felt the group - the other
participants - were just fabulous in being both supportive and
at the same time helpful with feedback for all of us. I grew as
a speaker and as a person every day as Rex nurtured, challenged
and supported each of us every step of the way. I feel I have
come so very far in just 6 days and look forward to continuing
to practice, refine and improve my speaking a little bit more
each and every day - for the rest of my life. The training, Rex
and his staff were responsible for this - their energy, humor,
concern and eagerness to go the extra mile really came through.
Rex demonstrated and spoke with a polish, sense of confidence
- professional demeanor and range of emotions that he is one of
the finest people I think I could ever model as a speaker, trainer
or a communicator. I can't say strongly enough what a great 6
days this was - for all of the above reasons."

"(Rex is) masterful, friendly, talented, energetic,
inspiring, professional, focused, entertaining, quick witted,
accepting, compassionate, patient, available, down to earth. My
first experience with IDEA Seminars was a delightful conversation
over the phone with Carolyn. I gained valuable insight into a
curiosity about relationships. I was immediately at ease with
our conversation and basically made up my mind immediately that
the Trainers Training was the one for me. I congratulate myself
on the decision - it was the right one for me. Rex also allowed
me to feel comfortable and at ease. The amount of information,
tools and practical hands-on speaking experience was simply incredible.
Rex has a beautiful way of encouraging and challenging people
to go through fear and do things they didn't dream of ever being
able to do. Each time I felt as though I'd never get it or felt
overwhelmed, the next exercise was the one I needed to continue.
This is the first time I've ever actually felt the integration
of new skills and ways of being happen. This is truly a life changing
event and I am grateful to Rex and Carolyn for their patience,
knowledge, skill and mastery. I was delighted, entertained, and
changed. Thanks Rex. Thanks Carolyn. And thanks to all the participants
in this program. I recommend the Trainers Training whole heatedly."
Barlen, Manager, Bella Vita, Seattle, WA
"Rex cares enough to be tough. Each person brings
with them the ability to be better and Rex provides a mirror in
which I could see what I really needed to do. It's wonderful in
the information age to find Rex leading us back to being people.
There are times and places you can look back on and say that your
life changed in some way. The courses that Rex teaches are certainly
that and yet there is more. To come to an IDEA Seminar is to learn
to make each day a new opportunity to find something good and
new. What a blessing it is to find yourself changing in ways that
are delightful and profound. Some NLP programs are about content,
structure and form but most are not about using your own abilities
to their fullest. Shame on them for losing the most important
aspect of learning. If you really want to make some changes in
your life and outlook - go be with Rex in Wisconsin."

Director, Planning Systems, Inc.,
"(Rex is) intelligent, bright, and a natural
genius. He was interesting and caring about everyone's personal
growth and a trainer.... a great teacher of NLP. Funny, witty,
philosophical and a true artisan... I learned how to use my NLP
skills to teach, entertain, inspire, empower and most importantly
to learn how to focus energy. I re-learned how to add play, humor,
with and fun in my life from Rex and Carolyn. The students of
life who come to training were inspiring and very, very interesting.
To become a trainer was our true mission here at trainers training.
Life is Grande!"

"(Rex is) very accessible and easy to talk to
as well as being very knowledgeable about many subjects beyond
NLP and DHE (e.g. magic, movies, etc.). (I) really appreciate
his commitment to keeping his promise to go the extra mile if
we (I) would approach him first. The promise that I would get
specific personal attention during, before and after class hours
and there was a follow-up consultation program along with a reasonable
price made my decision for me to attend. I had plenty of time
on stage, every day of the seminar always followed by detailed
critiques plus a video to keep for future reference. I learned
as much from the times teacher and students ate together - a rarity
or impossibility in other companies' programs - as I did in the
official seminar meeting room. This made every waking hour a learning
M. Jenkins, Jr. Senior Sales Representative, Seoul, Korea
"I would like to tap into his (Rex's) genuine
energy and enthusiasm! ... He is willing to be humble, yet powerful.
Rex has the ability and the gift to be appreciated as a trainer's
trainer. He tastefully blends humor with learning which achieves
super results. To sum it up... simply grand."
Gerstler, Financial Director, Mortgage Consultants, Inc.
"(Rex is) Genuine! Sincere! And motivated to help
you bring out the best in yourself and others. Once again, Rex
has out done himself with this fabulous program. Rex accompanies
you on this miraculous ride known as transformation. You will
never view speaking in front of an audience as anything other
than a wonderful opportunity to learn and grow, after you attend
