Who We AreIntroducing Sue and the teams
My India Family
Arul Subramaniam, Ramesh Prasad and Tulsi Prasad
The team here are most definitely so much more than a team. We are family. My work here in India has unfolded in ways that I never could have set out in a ‘five year or a ten year plan’. And it has been over ten years since I first started to come to India first in Chennai in Tamil Nadu and now my base is Cherai in Kerala.
I do work in many other parts of India and I could not do this without the amazing and generous support of these remarkable people – Arul Subramaniam founder and owner with his brother of the business BrainoBrain with its branches in 27 countries around the world. Arul also runs his own NLP business Arulsubramaniam.com.
And Ramesh Prasad and his wife Tulsi who are the owners of onefluencer.com running NLP programmes throughout the whole of India. Ramesh, Tulsi and Arul are key to my work in India. They provide the hosting, the organisation and the support. It is my aim to ensure that they learn all that I have learnt over the years.
India is a key player in the world and I am honoured to be supporting them in all the NLP work that they do and the work with teachers and children in BrainoBrain.
And a huge thank you to Graham Bower for not only translating my thoughts and dreams for my new image and website into a beautiful reality but for enriching it in the process and for doing it all with such charm, sensitivity, professionalism, creativity and above all patience. The journey was as much of a pleasure as the destination and the destination is superb. So the design and the brand inspires me and the style with which Graham does all of this gives me a freedom in which I just revel and play.
Many of you may have heard Graham present at one of my Alumni events and heard or read about his remarkable strategy for coming through cancer treatment. Read his blog here …and now his commitment to fitness is paramount.
I first trained in NLP in 1999 and worked with a number of NLP trainers before completing my NLP Trainer Training with Sue, in India in 2007. Discovering Clean Language and Provocative Coaching during this training with Sue was game and life changing and took my understanding of NLP to a whole new level.
Sue’s ability to recognise and work with patterns in language and behaviour, in real-time, changed how I understood NLP and how I now use it with myself and in working with clients. I have assisted Sue during trainings in many different communities, cultures and countries and have gained a deeper appreciation of what it means to be human.
It seems that no matter who we are or where we live, our ability to communicate effectively, connect deeply, and to trust appropriately, are keys to fulfilling our own potential and being able to support others to do the same.
Sue has a deep ability to create environments where all these elements, and more, are present, providing space for change to emerge. Her ability to model unconscious patterns and bring them into conscious awareness then offers an opportunity for change, individually and also communally.
Having trained and assisted with Sue for many years – completing my Master Trainer in 2013, it was only recently that it occurred to me to ask if she might work with me in Scotland to share her training here! And I am delighted to be working with Sue to make her unique contribution to NLP more widely available north of the border!

During the course I was impressed by Sue Knight’s sincere, calm, gentle attitude and her way of teaching in the state of being yourself. As a result of modelling Sue’s style and attitudeI started to achieve much more both professionally and personally.
I discovered that NLP is not an ‘education’, but a real-time awareness of the structure of life. My mission is to bring Sue’s experiential, purpose and value based model of NLP Training to Turkey. I want each participant to get a transformation and to discover their own unique excellence.
After each training session with Sue , I feel total gratitude for being in the right place, at the right time, with the right teacher.
NLP Trainer / Family Constellation Therapist
Marie Quigley and Jeanine Bailey
As co founders and directors of Empower World – a coach training, executive coaching and facilitation organisation based in Qatar – when we set our intention to bring outstanding NLP training to the Middle East we knew Sue Knight was the trainer and expert we wanted to partner with.
Having both participated in Sue’s transformational NLP programmes, we understood her purpose was intrinsically aligned to our own personal and organisational values, passion, mission and purpose.
There is no doubt Sue is a leader in her field. She carries in her heart, mind and soul years of real life experience, working with people from all walks of life in relation to personal and professional developments and she translates that experience into practical experiential learning, offering potential for enormous growth in every interaction.
Sue is generous, intelligent, challenging, colorful, provocative, courageous, divine and empowering.
And we believe we were destined to work together.

Many people call Vinoj Mr Cherai He can help with anything to do with Cherai where I run most of my India programmes. If you want accommodation (even there might appear to be none left if you book last minute) he will find some for you. If you lose something (one delegate left their passport on the plane!) He will find it or get it back! If you need a bike he will arrange it. If you want a mobile phone with an Indian sim card he will arrange it. If you are not well he will find a cure or someone who can … (not that we expect anyone to need this!) He will anything for anyone anywhere. I encourage all my delegates to make their bookings through Vinoj. As some say he is ‘a legend’!!
John and Jane Edwards
And here is the marvellous team John and Jane Edwards who support us in France. John and Jane own the charming and welcoming Chambres d’Hotes Pauliac where most of my delegates stay.And they do so much more than provide a place to stay. They take care of their guests, my delegates as if they were family.
Friends and family
.. And the most important team of all are all my friends who stand by me no matter what my choices (in this case it was salted caramel ice cream!) The friend in the middle was a great friend and supporter (she helped me with the french in my French TEDx talk) and she died not long ago. The other friend a long time neighbour in France is also very ill now so it is a reminder how short life can be and how important it is to make the most not only of that life but especially of those dear to us.
And my own very special personal team – my sons, my beautiful daughter in law and my wonderful grand daughters. What I do has to work for them first and foremost I mean if not them then who?!!
