Fish Can't Climb Trees: the Mercury Model workshop

Fish Can’t Climb Trees – the Mercury Model Workshop

Sat 25th November, 10.30 a.m. to 3.30 p.m.

This is an action-packed, fun-filled, participatory workshop which will forever change how you view your own mind and everyone else’s, how each of us handles information, naturally and individually, and what we need in order to take in your message.

The Mercury Model focuses on mental uniqueness. It can improve learning and kick-start mutually respectful communication with people of all ages, both genders, from any culture, on any topic, in any situation – from classrooms and living rooms, boardrooms and bar rooms.

Learn the Mercury Model in a day and use it for the rest of your life.

Pre-registration is essential – with date of birth and course payment– as I do personal work for each participant before the event.

The day fee is £55 which includes drinks, refreshments and personalised handouts.  (Bursaries are available.)  We will share our lunch, Jacob’s Join style. Please bring one of your favourite dishes.
