You are coming to the end of your two year term as President of CANLP. At this time, what accomplishments are you most pleased with during your term as President and what vision do you hold for CANLP?

I am extremly pleased that we have been able to offer the following to our members: Membership certificates; Professional development certificates for attending the conference; advertising program in our newsletter SUPPOSE; a CANLP/ACPNL logo for use by the Institutes; private link for members to access the latest edition of SUPPOSE, documents for the Annual General Meeting and the financials!

The members directory is also undergoing a revamp: soon members will be able to key in their contact information.

CANLP’s 18th Annual Conference will be held at the Plaza de la Chaudière Holiday Inn in Gatineau, Quebec, Canada, April 13 -15. What is the theme of this conference?

Success in the New Millenium

Would you please indicate the highlights of this conference and what attendees can expect.

The CANLP/ACPNL conference is always a great place to find out what is going on in the NLP world -- current issues and trends, latest developments. It’s a major networking activity that promotes information sharing, personal and professional connections for participants.

Whether you're new to the Conference or a veteran attendee, the conference’s energizing setting is an exciting and stimulating place to discover effective strategies, models and techniques and make valuable connections with others interested in NLP. This year the theme of the conference is SUCCESS IN THE NEW MILLENIUM and we have the pleasure of having SHELLE ROSE CHARVET as our Pre-Conference workshop facilitator on the topic of Iressistable Presentations. She will also be the keynote speaker. Her topic is Success in the New Millenium. Shelle is known around the world for her ground-breaking book Words That Change Minds: Mastering the Language of Influence. It is used as a text book in several university business programs in the US and the UK as well as Coach U. It’s now available in several languages

Is there anything else you would like to add at this time?

The 2007 conference has an outstanding list of presenters who will provide you with concrete ideas and applications to enhance your own personal and professional success.
