After studying Applied Psychology at Leeds University John Thompson started trading as Metropolis based from Leeds. Initially working with a partner in Liverpool developing professionals in the financial sector. 

It was decided to explore the applications of NLP in people development. After experiencing a certified nlp practitioner course it was decided to progress with further education in that field. After an accelerated fast track John became a trainer of nlp and started to apply many patterns and techniques with business clients.  Opportunities then opened to train in Norway at regular periods spanning over 4 years.Metropolis delivered nlp programs in Leeds and John assisted and delivered on certified courses in London to build his knowledge and skill set. 

In 2005 a rare opportunity to speak at a conference in Los Angeles led to working with the original founder of boutique hotels based out of New York. 

During the next 5 years John worked with HR professionals in the US hospitality sector.

This period created the awareness and  importance of value driven cultures. 

Companies adopting this strategy were growing during the recession and personnel were retained and developed based on the fit with personal and organisational values. 

Becoming knowledgable and experienced in value driven cultures led to significant projects with the worlds two largest cruise operators and several global brands. 

John constantly delivered nlp programs with other trainers in the UK and Europe whilst working and developing projects for the US. 

He is currently working with digital operators developing personnel and presenting business orientated nlp programs in Leeds.
