Re: An exclusive invitation to be one of only 20 people who take part in an unprecdented opportunity to transform their storytelling and influencing skills with direct feedback from a world-renowned NLP master....
An opportunity like this often comes along only once in a lifetime…
And, it’s quite likely to catapult your communication, change and persuasion skills to a whole other universe. Not to mention - change your relationships, income and career.
As a regular reader of my emails, you’re getting first notice of this news flash. Everyone else will have to wait at least a few days.
That’s important. Because this amazing opportunity may be gone by then.
Here’s the story: In 2004 I was sitting in a room with 1,000 people, eagerly watching a wizard of change transform people's lives.
Not the kind of wizard like Dr. Strange or Gandalf but a wizard no less powerful who had the ability to do truly remarkable things. He could change people’s minds and alter their behaviour without any closed eyes, hypnotic rituals, techniques or gimmicky language tricks.
Instead, the ONLY visible thing he seemed to be doing was telling stories.
Not the kind you can read in a book of ‘100 therapeutic stories of change’, no, this was something far, far more powerful and amazing.
I was witnessing a Wizard of Influence change people's lives using nothing but STORIES.
To the left and the right of me, all I could see was a sea of mesmerised faces. People were laughing, smiling, captivated, deeply present … hanging on to his every word.
He wasn’t using any apparent techniques, he wasn’t using a funny hypnotic voice, he spoke entirely normally and yet, somehow people’s brains were CHANGING.
But our conscious minds didn’t realise it. His change work was invisible.
The effects; truly amazing. With the exception of Richard Bandler, I had never seen any teacher of NLP, hypnosis or self-help courses and trainings I had paid for, be able to do anything like that.
And I had paid for a lot!
The ease and speed at which he could change people’s minds, emotions and beliefs about themselves and what is possible, using just conversational stories, was truly extraordinary.
Left, right, centre … people were changing before my eyes and frequently laughing while they did it!
Remarkably, although he was speaking to a 1,000 people, it was as if he was speaking to each of us individually, slipping suggestions into our minds, transmitting new instructions that were perfectly tailored to us, enabling us to change our lives with ease.
We were all mesmerised.
That speaker was one of NLP’s most respected change and storytelling masters - Michael Breen.
I knew right then I wanted to learn how to influence people powerfully, using nothing but conversational stories, where they didn't need to close their eyes and by hypnotised but were alert in a eyes open state. Because I wanted to be able to use this skill anywhere and everywhere.
Problem: No one was teaching this advanced communication skill. No book, course (and with very rare exception) instructor knew how to do it, much less teach it!
Even NLP and hypnosis courses that cost upwards of $20,000 didn’t cover it. Instead they focused on techniques, procedures and tactics that telegraphed to their listeners “I’m using NLP (or hypnosis) on you…”
I wanted to learn the really advanced stuff.
The stuff that is so slick and sophisticated no one sees you coming.
Years later, an opportunity presented itself to discover…
The Elite Storytelling System Used By The Most Skilled NLP Masters To Influence & Change People Covertly
In 2008, a chance conversation with Master Trainer Michael Breen would start a chain reaction that saw me study and work with Michael for over 15 years, creating scores of NLP products for students all around the world.
If you’re not familiar with who Michael is... he’s a renowned NLP master trainer, master storyteller and executive coach to A-list celebrities, billion dollar CEOs and elite clients and organisations. He co-created the hit program “The Power to Influence” by Nightingale-Conant and for over a decade co-ran workshops with Dr. Richard Bandler & Paul McKenna.
He’s been the mastermind behind several innovations in NLP including the Framing Tool and has taught over a 100,000 students how to communicate better. He's also an Oscar nominated screenwriter with 35 years experience telling spell-binding stories.
So when he opened up about how he tells stories that change people, my team and I listen. To begin with, we recorded every workshop and training session, turning many into hit NLP products. This gave me unprecedented access to study Michael up close. I eagerly invested thousands of hours in conversations, training rooms and workshops watching him do his thing.
And sitting there, seeing change after change and transformation after transformation for the students and people who came to study with him, I noticed there was a pattern to his storytelling.
At first it seemed nonsensical but soon it made PERFECT sense and was totally game-changing.
I noticed that frequently the stories Michael told in his workshops, seminars or private coaching calls seemed to have absolutely nothing to do with the topic the students were there to learn!
(I noticed this pattern when I went to see Richard Bandler, Eric Robbie and other legendary NLP masters.)
But whenever Michael told stories people would change. Often incredibly fast. Problems would disappear. Issues would go away, clients would be transformed, all from listening to ordinary ‘everyday’ stories.
With zero resistance. No apparent techniques and no funny trance rituals.
At first, it was incredibly difficult to notice when Michael was just having a conversation with someone vs when he was doing change work.
Until one day, while discussing with Michael how a spectacular change occurred in a seminar, when all he seemed to do was tell stories he said to me:
"Tom, don’t look at my finger, look at where my finger is pointing…”
Suddenly the lights went ON. I realised what he and other legendary masters were doing...
Cracking The Code On Truly Masterful Conversational Change
& Influence Work!
It was then I realised Michael wasn’t doing ONE thing, he was doing 3 things simultaneously. Richard Bandler was the same.
Wanna know what they are? Thought you might. I’ll tell you them in just a minute.
Prior to discovering this breakthrough, my storytelling was fairly average and my change work was very much “what technique should I use?” Mostly misses, with the occasional lucky hit.
When I tried to tell ‘transformational’ stories I felt like I was just guessing. I felt nervous, the process felt clumsy and I frequently lost the attention of my audience.
I had done a LOT of NLP and hypnosis training but when it came to applying it in the real world - I always felt like something was missing. That the true masters of the art knew something the rest of us didn’t.
And that day I discovered it’s TRUE!
So I went back and reconsidered what I'd been told about storytelling. I knew when it came to using stories in everyday life I was nowhere near as skilled as I wanted to be.
I also realised the techniques side of NLP wasn’t really that interesting to me, what I really wanted to know was…
How To Tell Stories Effortlessly
That Truly Impact & Influence People!
So I restudied the original masters of the field and watched hundreds of hours of trainings by Michael Breen, Richard Bandler and other wizards of influence who demonstrated this extraordinary skill, to see what they actually do.
And I discovered that whenever they were telling stories, they were combining 3 different skills together which were creating the magical effects.
Only ONE of these skills is ever taught in storytelling workshops - the first one, how to tell stories. Yet the other two are never covered in storytelling books or courses - which is why it’s been so hard to learn this stuff.
Yet when I studied every example of transformation via storytelling, I saw a master who had applied this triad of elite influencing skills.
The 3 inter-connected skills are:
With these 3 skills they could do remarkable things:
When I tested this out for myself...
"I Was Amazed at The
Speed Changes Occured."
All of sudden, I became way more skilled at creating changes with zero resistance.
I found myself jumping into 'advice giving mode' less and less and instead found myself telling clients multiple stories.
Net result: My clients loved it! They picked up new ideas and new ways of thinking faster.
I stopped using techniques and instead started using stories to create changes. Client changes accelerated.
I finally began to feel like I knew what I was doing!
Even when discussing 'difficult subjects' and having 'crucial conversations' with friends, family and with clients, I was able to communicate in such a way where people didn't feel ‘pointed at’, ‘marked out’, or forced to change. Changing people's minds became easier. I quickly realised how useful these skills were in coaching contexts and corporate engagements.
In leadership situations, I used stories to help teams, senior leaders and clients arrive at new conclusions and adopt new ways of thinking and acting without evoking resistance. Amazingly, this method worked just as well, regardless of my rank. In fact, it was way more powerful than what I had been doing.
Once I got hooked on this style of leading and influencing people, I never looked back.
Over the course of the next few years, I went on a life-changing exploration... investing well over 500 hours... researching and studying how NLP masters and wizards of influence use stories to change minds. I transcribed talks by hand, analysed what different speakers were doing. Patterning what worked.
I compared 'ordinary storytellers' to elite change masters and I began to discover deeper patterns used by the best wizards of influence, like Michael Breen, Richard Bandler, Tony Robbins and more.
Every chance I could, I would discuss with Michael how he and other masters of this form of advanced influence used stories to change people's minds so effortlessly.
Finally, after hearing over and over again from customers:
"Tom how can I do change work like Michael, that's so effortless and conversational?"
I said to Michael:
"This method is far too valuable to be kept to just the elite masters in NLP."
Six weeks later, a brand-new never before seen training and live feedback course was born.
INFLUENCE AND IMPACT

Influence and impact isn't like other things you've tried. It won't handicap you with unnecessary theory, weeks of content or storytelling scripts that work today but stop working tomorrow.
Instead, Michael Breen teaches the most important principles and strategies used by masters of NLP for decades to influence people outside of their conscious awareness - the stuff that so few people know, the knowledge that changes everything.

But before I jump ahead of myself, let me outline exactly what you'll learn in this course.
Here's a taster of what this course covers:
When it comes to telling stories and telling them well conversationally, there are many myths and misconceptions that get in the way. So to set you on the right track, Michael kicks things off by debunking common myths before quickly diving into big ideas and little known secrets anyone can use to become much, much better at telling stories that captivate, create a real connection and have a lasting impact!
The stories we tell ourselves are the most powerful and impactful of all. They create the boundaries in our minds about what we think is possible for us. They shape our relationship with the world, with others and most importantly ourselves. Yet many people’s inner stories are holding them back.
That’s why in this section of the course, Michael will show you how to transform your inner story fast.
