“Dirk is without doubt one of the most impressive and effective trainers I have worked with. Innovative, challenging, motivational and extremely personable, he made the intense learning experience embarked upon by my Team and I both compelling and a pleasure to participate in throughout. He has a rare ability to make all feel at ease, especially when working outside of comfort zones and what’s more, his techniques actually work superbly outside of the classroom. I commend him and his talents without reservation or hesitation.”
Philip A, Consultant, London, Personal Impact Training
“I came away from “Improve your relationships using Emotional Intelligence” training with Dirk and I am more determined to develop my understanding further. Dirk imparted his knowledge and experiences with great humor and nimble skill. Our perceptions were challenged, further opening our “logical minds” to the probability that all is not what it seems upon first glance and that its not all about the way people treat us and sometimes we need to consider the way we react or over react. I would recommend training with Dirk if you truly want to make a positive change in your life and those you care for and love. The future is brighter with a little Dirk in the mix.”
Magdalene S, Team Leader, London, Using Emotional Intelligence To Improve Your Relationships
“Dirk has a thorough understanding of management recruitment, assessment centres, training, development and coaching. He has worked as a Consultant for our company and I was impressed by his quick grasp of the requirements, his sound decision making ability and the way in which he quickly built credible and professional relationships with our clients. I would recommend Dirk unhesitatingly and will be using his services again in the future. He is reliable and a pleasure to work with.”
Kate J, HR Director, HR Consultancy, Harrogate, Assessment Centre
„The two training days with Dirk were very inspiring. He imparted his knowledge and experiences with great sense of humor. To conclude, he was the best trainer I’ve met“
Dr. Julia P, Chemist, Frankfurt / Germany, Coach Yourself To Confidence
“We hired Dirk to provide a training course on Man-Management. I found Dirk to be extremely knowledgeable. The format of the training was ideal for me as we kept changing topics which kept my interest and we had a various activities to complete along the way. I would highly recommend Dirk and am already implementing the techniques we were taught. This has been the most beneficial training I have completed since university.”
Kasia M, HR Manager, Nottingham, People Management Training
“Dirk has had such an impact on the working practices of both individuals and the organisation, it is without doubt that he has been my best consultant find this year.
Dirk’s ability to clearly and effectively communicate helps people relax and feel at ease during his training sessions. He is the upmost professional – whilst been super flexible, and he is always willing to go the extra mile.
The training techniques Dirk uses, not only empowers people in the work – but in all aspects of their life.
Rebecca S, Head of PR, Charity, London, Management Training
“It was more than pleasure for me to be Dirk’s paddawan. I didn’t only enjoy each and every moment of assisting him during his training, but also took the best I could get from having him as a good friend who is awesome company.
Dirk has taught me a lot more than I expected to learn. When I think about other participants, all I can remember is their envy and respect mixed with a huge curiosity I could see on their faces. He generously served us his knowledge in a plate of cheer and joy with a perfection which still guides me through my career of being a trainer and coach.
I’m extremely happy to model Dirk’s professional skills and I keep smiling when I sometimes realise myself showing his manners on stage and recieve questions from the participants asking if I had been trained by teutonic school. I learned how to dig the fun out of a training program while sticking to the plan from him.
I’m sure about any person who gets to know Dirk Bansch will do anything to keep this Jedi Master in his/her life for the rest of the time, because that’s definitely what I am doing.”
Elvan A, Business Trainer, Coach, Bodrum / Turkey, NLP Master Practitioner Course
“Dirk had the second year undergraduate group he addressed eating out of his hand. They have been enthusiastically talking about his visit since and I have had several requests from the students for more input from him.”
Andy P, University Lecturer, York, Motivational Speech
“Dirk employs a diverse approach to coach professionals and help them reach personal and career goals. During a 2-day workshop in Frankfurt, he provided many insightful tools in an interactive and fun manner. I look forward to using many of these techniques in the future. Highly recommended!”
Dr. Anna A, Biologist, Greece
“I thought the course was absolutely brilliant and I thoroughly enjoyed the day. It gave me a lot of very useful tools to take away and build on. Dirk, was very engaging and he clearly knows his stuff. In my opinion, he delivers the session with the perfect tone and the attention to detail by relating a subject matter or theory back to our business unit made it relatable.
Ross B, Director, Wetherby, People Management Essentials
“Tuesday’s training was a great success and thoroughly enjoyed by all – thank you again!”
Emma F, Charity, London, People Management Training
“Just a short note to say thanks for all the training. It’s made quite a difference in my life. Thank you for your encouragement and making me realise I actually do ahve more potential than I give myself credit for.”
Helen S, Senior Project Manager, Somerset, Breakthrough Day
“Dirk Bansch delivered the best espresso shot session so far. He delivered his learning approaches in a very engaging, empathic and inclusive way. The fact that he did so while making people laugh and also interacting with attendees made it even better. There were plenty of things to think about. The techniques he suggested could instantly be applied to reduce stress in the workplace and to assist with creating a positive mindset. Colleagues were queuing up for his business card after the Kings Hill session. With good reason – he was superb. Dirk should definitely be invited back to do a full day course.”
Michelle H, L&D Manager, Charity, Reading, Emotional Intelligence Espresso Session
“Firstly, thank you so much for yesterday, I was buzzing last night and really enjoyed working with you. There are so many things which I have taken on board from yesterday. It really was such a good day and I look forward to hearing from you when you get a moment.”
Tanya W, Customer Service Team Leader, York, Customer Service Training
“As a professional contractor, having a CV which can stand out from the crowd enough to get you the all important interview is vital. My CV had been through several peer reviews and had been reviewed by professional CV writers, but with little success. Although my CV was striking a chord with job agencies, it wasn’t making the vital breakthrough with potential employers for interviews.
A mutual friend suggested I get Dirk to review my CV, and the results were astonishing. Dirk had a quick look through and made some suggestions for a few simple changes. I made the changes he’d suggested, with the intention of working more with him to get the CV even better. But I didn’t get the chance!
Within a week of registering my new CV I had had over a dozen calls from agencies wanting to submit my CV to potential employers. The first role my CV was submitted for resulted in an interview, and I was successful in securing the contract.
I have nothing but praise for Dirk’s ability. He spots the simple but effective things which make all the difference. The results speak for themselves.
I have no hesitation in recommending Dirk – he can make a real difference to your prospects.”
Phil J, Director, Consultancy, Manchester, CV Optimisation
“Congratulations on the Building Ambition event – all of the feedback has been fantastic – many people have commented specifically about how impressed they were with you and the energy you brought to the event – I hope you enjoyed yourself and that we get to work together with you again on something similar in the not too distant future.”
Matthew R, Senior Council Officer, Halifax, Emotional Intelligence Speech

In addition, you were very flexible in your approach and gathered some very valuable feedback which will help us to manage our business more effectively.
On top of that, we all had some fun!”
Sean M, Managing Partner, Manchester, Team Building Training
“Thank you for a fabulous training session. I liked your extremely professional, relaxed, knowledgeable and friendly approach to the day. A very satisfying and enjoyable session and time well spent. Many thanks.”
Pam J, Client Relationship Manager, Edinburgh, Presentation Skills Training
“The organisation I work for has now hired Dirk on numerous occasions to deliver training for myself and my colleagues. Every session he has delivered has been fantastic. The training day that I helped to organise was delivered perfectly to my specification and the office staff couldn’t stop raving about it – hence my boss felt the need to bring him back for 2/3 days!
He was brilliant at tailoring the day to our specific needs and we all found the days he worked with us incredibly useful. His training has hugely improved the way we communicate as an office and many of the techniques and theory he has taught us has helped in many other areas of my communication as well. A great experience all round.
I hope we can have him back to further practice and perfect the concepts he has introduced us to. I would recommend him (and do!) to anyone.”
Alissa D, Office Manager, NHS, Essex, Advanced Communication Skills Training
“Dirk is a skilled trainer with whom I have worked number of times over the past three years. I have visited overseas markets with Dirk and his company, and have seen glowing testimonials from companies where he has provided training courses at the highest levels. I have no hesitation in recommending him or his company.”
Brian A, Senior Manager, UKTI, Manchester, Exporting Consulting
“Dirk has delivered 2 workshops and received great feedback from my normally sceptical colleagues. His training his highly effective and relevant.”
Dirk took care to establish exactly what our requirements for the course were prior to delivery, he also adapted his programme to meet our needs on the day ensuring that we got the best from the training. Excellent course and trainer.”
Sean M, Senior Partner, Investment Bank, Liverpool, Team Building Training

Sonia B, Training Consultant, Rotterdam / The Netherlands, Customer Service Training
“Dirk was my trainer when I attended a Practitioner Course in NLP. He is a superb NLP trainer and has been my coach since. What he taught me has had a dramatic effect upon my ability to communicate and to improve my outcomes. Dirk is of the highest integrity, extremely intelligent, great fun and a wonderful friend to have. I recommend you look no further if ever you want an NLP training.”
Roger K, Osteopath, York, NLP Practitioner Course
“Dirk completely helped me overcome anxiety with regards to a blood disorder I have.”
Rebecca S, Director, Charity, London, One-to-One Coaching session
“I had a training session with my company in Bahrain, the training called The Leader Within, which was very informative and practical. Dirk was one of the instructors (of two), who conducted the training in two parts- each part was 4 days, I could not attend at the second part and Dirk provided coaching sessions to me over the Skype. It was really really helpful. I should say that Dirk took care to develop exactly what I needed for my job and is a highly skilled trainer with an excellent style of teaching enabling me to throughly understand concept of that valuable training.”
Alireza S, Senior Manager, Logistics company, Tehran / Iran, One-to-One Coaching Session

Serkuthan N, NLP Master Practitioner, Istanbul / Turkey, NLP Master Practitioner Course
“The training was delivered with professionalism and to a high standard. You tailored the content to suit our needs following some pre-event discussion with me and I am happy that our training objectives were met. Many of my colleagues have taken time to provide me with very positive feedback about how much they enjoyed the training and how beneficial it will be in their workplace. The interactive nature of the training was especially appreciated and stimulated much thought and discussion. I intend to seek formal feedback from all the attendees and if you wish I can share, with you, any relevant comments about the part of the training day.”
Fiona D, Consultant, Civil Service, Belfast
“I am writing to thank you for all the help you gave me over the past 12 months. The monthly workshops were informative and really useful and I will miss the interaction with the other students. Also I appreciated the individual sections as they kept me on track and I definitely felt that time was no object.
The course has built up my confidence as a team leader and helped me recognise that I already had the basic skills but they just needed fine-tuning. The knowledge I have gained and the tips I have learned are being put to good use and the team at Escrick feel we are working together better as a team.
Our next venture is to enter a competition to gain a National Training award. We are doing this as a team and I have got other team members involved. So watch this space!
The course was well worth the time and effort and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for management training.
Thank you all once again.”
Jane W, Team Leader, Estate & Park Management, York, Management Training

Jackie W, Senior Researcher, Science Laboratory, Hull, Team Building Training
“I have attended the Master Practitioner training course given by Mr. Dirk BANSCH in Ankara. I should say that with his energetic, lively and helpful approach, I learnt a wide range of fast and highly effective NLP techniques which enabled me to be more aware of my abilities and opened my eyes into a world of magic! Also, I gained flexibility in many areas of life, as did all other participants. Furthermore, just after the course, I started to facilitate lives of many beloved ones through eliminating their concerns, problems, phobias and even allergy.
I benefited from training of Dirk Bansch so much that I would suggest everybody taste this experience of perfect NLP training.”
Aytac U, Managing Director, Ankara / Turkey, NLP Training

I am sure I will be the world champion. No way out.”
Muhammed C, Professional Kickboxer, Antalya / Turkey, 1-2-1 Coaching
“THANKS Dirk! I feel much better now. You are very good at your job. ”
Dr. Alaina S, Conservator, Scotland
“Dirk – what can I say????
I think what comes across most from him is his honesty and his passion for what he does – he really believes what he is trying to convey to us and that comes out very strongly.
His ‘performance’ is very clear and simple – he’s also great fun and is able to laugh both at us and with us, as well as at himself!!!
I know when we went to the last session, I told Frank that it was going to be Dirk and he was a bit wary because he hadn’t worked with him before and had only seen him sitting at the back etc – but by coffee Frank’s reaction was WOW!!!! – and so if he can impress an old sceptical geezer like Frank (!) he must be doing something right.
I really can’t think of any criticism and I’ve tried really hard!!”
Alison D, Senior Manager, Construction Company, Leeds, Management Development Training
“I am delighted to recommend Dirks work in designing, delivering and following through on a series of leadership programs delivered in the Middle East. Dirk’s approach to developing leaders through innovative techniques and a strong focus on ethics I found to be both highly value adding and unique. Dirk is customer focused, builds lasting relationships and I would be thrilled to have an opportunity to work with him again.”
Meredith T, HR Manager, Logistics Company, Manama / Bahrain, Leadership Training
“Dirk is a pleasure to work with, focused, practical and results driven. When I first talked over some issues with Dirk, I found that at the end of the conversation I had written down a single sentence of advice. The classic ‘take away’ if you like. However that advice made an enormous difference when I used it as the lodestone for a potentially tricky meeting. Thats a long way of saying that Dirk sees the wood as well as the trees.”
Chris B, Head of Event Marketing, Charity, London, Emotional Intelligence Coaching
“You are my teacher. I learned very beautiful things from you. You are the greatest teacher of my NLP journey. You helped so many people… You do not even know… I thank you very much, I send my love.”
M. C., NLP Master Trainer, Ankara, Turkey, NLP Master Practitioner Training
Thank you so much for your brilliance in what you do.
My anxiety is gone, and I feel a million times better!”

“Thank you so much for your help! I feel much better now.”
Yinan Xu, Dalian / China, Confidence Coaching
“The initial feedback from all who attended has been very positive. Everyone found Dirk engaging, patient and extremely knowledgeable on the subject given the variety of questions he received across four very different groups. Overall, it was a successful introduction in to the world of Emotional Intelligence.”
Darren D, Training Manager, Insurance Company, Manchester, Emotional Intelligence Leadership Training
“Just a note to say thanks again for the session that you ran for us last Thursday. I think it is safe to say it was a great success and everyone was very pleased with it when we had our final review on Friday!”
Emily W, HR Director, Engineering Company, Newcastle, Management Development Training
“I just wanted to thank you for your help with my presentation and for the text that you sent me on the day. It went well and my director was really pleased with how it went. I used the relaxation tips which you went through with us before the talk and it definitely helped to calm my nerves. Thanks again!”
Jodie D, Student, York, Presentation Skills Training
“Dear Dirk, I just wanted to say thank you again for these two days in Frankfurt on your conflict management seminar. You are indeed engaged far beyond what may be expected from such a training. Insights are coming like in a bunch of flowers and the range of applicability is stretching far beyond the immediate seminar topic. After some thinking, from the many valuable insights this (quite unexpected one) is likely to have the broadest effect on me: ‘It’s your responsibility to make sure you walk into the office happy and come out of it happy.’ Will certainly recommend your seminars.”
Dr. Erika K, Frankfurt, Germany, Coach Yourself To Confidence Training
“Many courses within the arena of leadership and management development promise the world and deliver very little. This couldn’t be further from the truth when applied to ‘The Emotionally Intelligent Manager’ course run by Dirk Bansch.
The course content was fantastic and gave a great insight into the potential for emotional intelligence in the workplace. I was equally as impressed however, with the level of knowledge, expertise and quality of delivery from Dirk.
Dirk spoke with the kind of passion and enthusiasm that infects those around him. His knowledge knowledge of the subject (and many others) was clearly evident, but it was his application to both real world situations and the psychological drivers behind behaviour that made the day so memorable.
I came away with a number of simple and effective tools thanks to Dirk’s skillful blending of theory and practice, which I have already started to apply and see results from.”
Matt R, Senior Project Manager, Calderdale, Motivational Keynote Address
I would like to express my sincere gratitude to you.
You helped me understand how to find and demonstrate my strengths.
It was a real pleasure to have you as a trainer.
Thank you so much for your kind help!”
Dr. Camelia T, Geophysicist, Bucharest / Romania, One-To-One Emotional Intelligence Coaching
“It was fantastic to meet you, thank you so much for a great session, I have let my managers know of my plans following the coaching and they were both pleased with the outcome.”
Natalie S, Team Leader, London, One-To-One Coaching
” Dirk – we all agreed that it was an excellent presentation from yourself and we have learnt many new skills that we are keen to implement!”
David A., Cardiff, Management Training
Well, as I attended an event which took me totally out of my comfort zone recently, I met up prior to this with Dirk.
I’m not sure what he did during our session but I certainly have been feeling very calm and very positive ever since.
Renni P., York, Reflexologist
“What you gave me as trainer is so valuable that I can’t pay it back no matter what I do and no matter how much I thank you.
Thank you very much for the love you gave and for all the sharing.
This training has been a landmark in my life. You absolutely changed my world. I strengthened my self-esteem, I solved the biggest problem of my life in your training. Everything I learnt from you is coming back to me as love and happiness. Now that I am a very successful trainer myself and I get 100% success in my trainings. It is a perfect feeling to achieve these at the age of 23. Even though my dreams are big, I feel like they are highly possible and they will come true, because nothing is impossible. Please expect to hear suprising news from me. 🙂 It was great fun to be with you. I expect your success to continue. I thank God for your existence.”
Gözde Aras, Trainer, Antalya (Turkey), NLP Master Practitioner Training
“Dirk Bansch – probably the best NLP teacher in the World
I had heard much about NLP and the likes of Anthony Robbins for some time and after having done a post graduate training for helping children with dyslexia my need to study NLP accelerated. Good old Google found a training organisation in my old home town of York and one phone call later I was talking or should I say communicating with someone who has gone on to become one of my very best friends. Enter Dirk Bansch, an Anglo-German and proudly hailing from Wolfsburg somewhere in Bavaria.
Dirk offered me a taster session, a personalised one on one training, and when we finally did meet he simply asked “what would you like to change about your life?” Well where do you begin with a question like that! “Ok”, I said wanting to test him “I break out in a cold sweat when I hear a particular mobile phone ring tone, an association created by a psychologically deranged ex girlfriend, I’d love to be clear of that”. Well 10 minutes later I was clear of this phobia. “Next” said Dirk!
This continued on for an hour with Dirk systematically reprogramming my reactions and thought patterns with a combination of hypnosis, language patterns and direct challenging. I was blown away by his insight into the human mind and his ability to see the bigger picture. So many issues when viewed from another angle are easily defused and turned around so they become ecological for the individual. I had to know more so I signed up for his week long training course.
At the time Dirk was part of a teaching 3 some, all excellent teachers or “trainers”, but the course participants all actually agreed that Dirk was in a far higher class and predominantly because his humility and refreshing honesty resonated with us. We covered a huge amount of material at breakneck speed, yet I understood and could remember it, I could almost instantly apply it, and a month later I could remember it almost word for word! Now I am dyslexic with ADHD tendencies and I have never had such memory recall and understanding from teaching! Why? What was he doing? How did he do it? And WHY WAS HE NOT MY TEACHER AT SCHOOL? I had the potential that was never harnessed fully by my teachers at school yet here was a teacher who could teach me and I could achieve!
I applied what I had learned in my practice and I did see the benefits to my clients. One tool Dirk taught me was modeling and an assignment was to make a study of a person who particularly impressed me. I choose an osteopath called Gez Smith; everyone likes Gez and he is a phenomenal practitioner who at times literally walks on water. I studied his language patterns, his body language, his movements but when Dirk put me into a hypnotic trance and had me “stand by Gez” and then “step into Gez” it was a ground breaking experience. I was inside Gez and could feel what he would feel, share his emotions, anticipate what he would say or do and literally experience his whole physiology and psychology. I learnt his anchors, his strategies, how he associated and moreover his weaknesses.
When I “stepped out” and dropped out of trance I transformed, I now had an understanding of how my subconscious interpreted my interactions with Gez and how that communication and therapeutic interaction worked. In actuality Gez my function in a totally different way, but I now understood how he worked for me! This whole process can be applied to anyone you admire, respect and would want to emulate. Do the top business executives do this? Do the top sports people do this? Yes they certainly do and it is why they get an edge on the opposition.
Some teachers of NLP claim they can teach a horrible person “get the pretty girl into bed in 5 minutes” or “to sell something the person doesn’t want, need or afford”. Dirk let it be known very early on the course he would rather be struck down by plague than be associated with such reprehensible behavior.
Over the years we became firm friends with him helping many of my clients and family. He has an incredible intellect combined with humor and intense honesty. As a professional he trains and coaches world leading executives and organisations and he is in demand worldwide. He not long ago trained a friend of mine how to pass an exam by learning how to study, absorb, process, retain, integrate and be able to apply such information in an exam setting without melting down under the pressure. My friend passed and is doing well. Many students with exam issues have Dirk to thank for coaching them to success.
He is amazing and if you need a coach there is no one better.”
