My introduction to educational publishing came when I co-authored a book of worksheets on self-motivation and related topics, called Goal Setting and Decision Making. I found the process sufficiently rewarding that I acquired the publishing rights to it, along with some 39 other titles, and used them to found the Chalkface Project. I’m proud to say that it still sells well 15 years later.
That book was based on a (then) very new branch of psychology called Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). I had recently completed training in this and it had made a huge difference to my life. I wrote the book because I wanted to find a way to give back.
I still feel that sense of obligation, so when I was asked to develop the website for November’s NLP Conference in London, I naturally agreed. That website is finally ready, and you might be interested to know that it features a very interesting-looking track on NLP in Education.
