training class size is limited to 10 students)
"(Rex is) a consumate professional. A master of his material,
& a craftsman at presenting. His training has not a rigid
delivery of information overload, quite the opposite, with care
and passion he artfully weaved a tapestry of excellence. I would
whole heartedly & without reservation recomend Rex to anyone
wishing to enjoy improved presenting ability.
have had a dream of being able to stand in front of an audience
and compassionately influence and inform at a deep level. Although
I interact one-on-one with people on a daily basis, public speaking
had always been an area of frustration and anxiety. And perhaps
you can relate to this, although part of me wanted to fully enjoy
being a master speaker, part of me wanted to remain in something
I was already masterful in. Rex was able to coax, conjole, laugh,
guide, provoke, prod me in a supportive and caring way to achieve
the goals I new I desire. Having achieved my goals and enjoying
being on the other side, all I can say is 'Thanks Rex from the
bottom of my heart!'"
Redard, M.D., Sacramento, California
is) charming, knowledgeable, honest, open, straightforward, accomplished,
came to this program in need of bettering my abilities in front
of an audience. I was a bit skeptical, expecting the typical 'stand
here do this type of training.' This training was anything but
this. Rex came at me from all directions, modeling comics, great
orators. Enough pressure to force me out of my comfort zone, yet
with compassion and support to give me confidence 'I' could do
it. This is an experiential training. No boring lecture format.
Plenty of quality information but even more important, hours &
hours of 'spotlight' time. Time spent making presentations from
comedic to tragic. I now have a strong base of understanding of
how to elicit passion or laughter, motivation or understanding
joy or sadness within my audience. Be it one on one or multitudes.
Thank you for giving me the tools, pointing me in the right direction
and the confidence to 'DO IT.'"
Barco, Security Consultant, San Mateo, California
is) dynamic, energetic, caring, intelligent, supportive, positive,
taken many NLP trainings I can honestly say my experience at trainer's
training has been absolutely the best NLP training I have received.
The combination of talent, genius, and caring Rex has, allows
him to connect with his students like no other trainer. He spent
almost every available free moment helping us in ways we never
dreamed possible. I will never forget the hours spent chatting
with Rex late into the nights after each day at the training.
Rex is truly a unique trainer in his approach to the material
and the students. I consider him one of the brightest, freshest
minds in the field and give him my highest recommendation."
Patel, Consultant, Chicago, Illinois
is) cool, loving, caring, extremely knowledgeable about many things,
respect, integrity, calm, centered.
cannot express my feelings and I'm a writer! Each time I come
to Rex's program I get 10 times more than I expected. I love the
changes I've been able to make. At this specific program I came
in with no public speaking experience, and I feel like a strong
powerful, effective speaker. As a performer this new skills will
be invaluable to me. I am absolutely grateful that somehow I found
out about Rex. I've never felt more alive emotionally and physically.
And the ability to 'connect' with people more quickly and easily
and with larger groups is something I've been wanting for a long,
long time. I spoke with a lot of people that have attended other
NLP programs and every one of them that has been through Rex's
program agrees with me that its the best, most useable and practical,
totally life changing event. You'll work hard, but it never seems
like work. Its more like playing like a kid. Lots and lots of
laughter. The week went by so fast it felt like a few days, and
the new skills I found myself with are the equivalent of weeks
and months of traditional training. I can't remember the last
time I felt so absolutely wonderful. This program has given me
even more ability to really control and amplify my positive emotions.
And I thought I was doing great before I started. I really can't
begin to describe this experience until you've experienced it
for yourself. If more people came here, I think we'd be much further
towards peace. Please decide to go, because your life will never
be the same. Thanks Rex & Carolyn!"
Hoffman, Copywriter/Musician, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
has a fantastic range and gently stretched everyone to expand
their view of the endless possibilities for getting a message
training was so much fun. With a small group and lots being packed
in to the program --it was easy to really get to know everyone
and develop bonds that will last far beyond the time spent here.
Everyone was constantly being challenged to try on new states
and play with them. What a refreshing change from other trainings!!
Even more fun than growing and expanding yourself was the opportunity
to see the tremendous changes in other participants. This training
really gave me a greater appreciation for the power of NLP as

is) dedicated master teacher of the art of living, and of using
your brain to live life much more gloriously.
took all three seminars (Practitioner, Master Pract & Trainer's
Training) in 1998. Now, after repeating Trainer's Training, my
growth in using and living much more fully only continues. The
precision and ease of directing my thoughts has resulted in my
creating an increasingly more exquisite and beautiful life."
DeBoer, Anesthetist, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
is a true master at what he does. He understands the needs of
his students on an individual basis. He gently nudges the individual
to stretch beyond their present boundaries to where they never
dreamed possible. If you like people who are funny, happy, brilliant
and full of integrity, you'll love Rex. Thanks, Rex.
never had any aspirations of being a public speaker. I attended
this seminar so that I could be a better communicator in my business
and in my person life. However, after attending this seminar I
now have decided to pursue a new career in public speaking. That's
how much this program has done for me. I am amazed just how profound
the changes have been in my classmates and of course myself. Knowing
the principles of public speaking and then practicing those principles
repeatedly throughout the seminar brings ones level of skill to
a much higher level. I would recommend this course to anyone who
wants to become a better communicator regardless of whether you
plan on becoming a public speaker. The skills I've learned here
will assist me in being a better communicator in all my life experiences."
McCarthy, MCSE/Landscaper, Saugus, Massachusetts
challenges, encourages and supports you to stretch yourself beyond
what you thought possible. He has great skills, knowledge, wisdom,
gotten skills, confidence and enjoyment to do presentations in
a degree I thought weren't possible. If this training can do it
for me, who have English as a second language, it can do it for
anyone. I've met great people in my fellow participants, and I've
enjoyed seeing them develop during this training. We've had a
great time and have encouraged and supported each other. Cedar
Valley and the staff are excellent. I can't think of a better
place for a training.
and Carolyn (and Sydney) have made this training an extraordinary
recommend anyone who want to improve their public speaking skills
to take this training."
Rundcrantz, Malmoe, Sweden
have been in the speaking business for 10 years and have given
hundreds of presentations to thousands of participants. Discovering
NLP three years ago brought my speaking ability to an even higher
level. So when I read about IDEA Seminars Ultimate Train the Trainer
program on the web, I couldn't wait to sign up. This excitement
was maintained the entire program. Since I already had the content
for my presentations I was looking for polish. This program went
beyond polish. We worked on the way we walked, used our voices,
states, anchoring the stage, eliciting responses from the audience
and much more.
One of the most fantastic 'value added' features was the bonding
of the participants. It was wonderful to experience each person
blossom before your very eyes! The more quiet participants became
animated, the intense relaxed into friendly open contributors,
and everyone shared their energy in a way that helped each other
grow even more.
The pace of the sessions was terrific. Assignments were given
to help us strectch yet care was taken to insure we were not pushed
over the edge. We were well fed at regular intervals and the lodging
at Cedar Valley was another experience in itself. We fed horses
on our breaks, walked by the lake and enjoyed exchanging stories
late night in the comfortable lounge areas.
The things I will use specifically in my speaking business are:
#1 eliciting a comfortable, calm & confident state before
stepping on to stage (this usually didn't happen for me until
I was actually on stage a few minutes into my presentations) connecting
with the audience at an even deeper level, SLOWING DOWN and the
powerful use of the P-A-U-S-E. It was also useful to watch videos
of other presenters to see what was effective and what wasn't.
A terrific bonus was being able to bring home a video of myself
with several different examples of my presentations using varing
styles of performing. This way I can continue making adjustments.
And speaking of adjustments, the feedback I received from the
participants was invaluable. It was like having several speaking
coaches for the price of one. The program was a worthwhile memorable
