Asia-Pacific Mid-Year Conference 2019 Testimonials

I was able to see practical examples of myself and others communicating both effectively and ineffectively, in a deliberate and focused manner. It has accelerated my understanding of transactional competence in ways that simply weren’t possible via the study I have done to date.

Andrew Crellin

During this conference, I saw where I am an offer of help and where I need to ask for help. The practical activities allowed me to practice in a safe and highly supported environment where everyone was on my side. I came back to work being able to put new practices and behaviours into place immediately; I saw and felt a level of satisfaction I have never experienced before. This conference was highly practical and immediately useful. Looking forward to the next one.

Anna Stover

Conference is essential for a successful participation in these programs. It’s about the people you meet, the learning you gain, and the help I can be to others and others can be to me.

Bo Hendgen

My experience of Influence Ecology conferences is that they always shine a light on an aspect of your business offer that was in your blind spot. Not only do they draw attention to a weakness in your business process, but they also offer a solution. I loved day 1; day 2, as a judge of the gentle persuasion, the experience was painful. Pain, when recognised and treated effectively, leads to greater power over your own destiny. The help was there for me to go on this journey and shed the baggage.

Daphne Thompson

MYC in Surfers Paradise was a great experience. Excellent presentation and content, in a wonderful ecology of ambitious adults. I was seeking re-motivation, and the conference delivered in spades. Thanks, Influence Ecology!

David Somerville

I gained a much deeper understanding of what transactional competence can actually provide for the world and was really inspired by the lofty aim of Influence Ecology. Watching John Patterson transact with participants was incredibly valuable and highlighted the need to practice if I want to reach his level of mastery. I gained a greater understanding of how a transaction is constructed, the roles different personalities play, and their location in the cycle. The games were a valuable demonstration of this. I learnt the value of taking the time to construct a transaction.

Jannie Alday

The learning environment was masterful. At every stage, I felt confident and safe at the same time as being sufficiently at risk, which produced an accelerated learning environment for all of us.

Jillian Formentin

As I have said on other occasions, your education is not complete until you have attended a conference—and this conference was no exception. The lessons learned through the practical application of this education were priceless. To see and practice the transaction cycle in action, with all the moods, excitement, agitation, was something to behold. Few, if any, could have come away from this conference untouched by the impact that they have on the environment and the environment has on them. A fantastic game that taught us all—even when some thought that it wasn’t designed for their involvement!

John Baigent

The lessons learned at conference combined with powerful professional members and the expertise of John Patterson’s delivery of the program is without a doubt priceless. This is my 5th Mid-Year Conference; it only gets better. A+++

Lisa Baptista

The way that Influence Ecology designs a conference to enhance learning is world class. This conference brought to life key concepts for me that I know about but did not understand or embody. To create an environment that provides that level of education over a weekend is impressive, and I highly recommend attending.

Matthew Jackson

An ideal setting in which to learn and practice the fundamentals of transactional competence, in a setting where everyone is committed to achieving the best possible outcomes in a competitive and consequential environment.

Michael Dunn

The 2019 Mid-Year Member Conference was “just what the doctor ordered.” After a challenging start to the year, the conference was directly relevant to my aims and my enterprise aims. It felt like it was individually designed to meet my needs. Thank you to John for his wisdom and sheer brilliance in planning a challenging, clever, and fun program. Thanks also to Drew and Gary, all the Influence Ecology staff, and Debora and Vivienne who supported us here in Surfers. I am grateful beyond words to be able to study and practice with this ecology.

Moira Clay

Influence Ecology conferences never fail to create an environment of learning through deliberate practice. Being given the opportunity with other ambitious adults to consider how I act in the environment I create around me and understand the impact I have is not achieved in any other professional learning I have done. I leave motivated to continue to think accurately and apply the techniques I am learning for the betterment of myself and my business.

Neil Calvert

The experience of attending the 2019 Mid-Year Conference was invaluable in holding up the mirror of how we transact in practice. The learnings contribute to raising my ability to transact to ensure satisfaction of my Conditions of Life.

Pam Millist

I had been to several local workshops before, but at a conference spread over several days the level of knowledge I picked up was at another level. The opportunity to meet, interact, and gain insights from the various personality types was a privilege. There is a huge wealth of resources that I realised I could tap into. Now that I have made those connections and expanded my ecology within Influence Ecology my ability to access those resources has become easier. One thing I realised is I did not previously understand what asking for help meant. In the conference, I learned how to request for help and was overwhelmed by the help provided when I made those requests.

Pasan Fernando

A great ecology to help you grow yourself. Having the ability to work with a group of people for nearly three days to coach, mentor, and call you out is one of the most valuable experiences one can have. Knowing is doing.

Paul Harris

The conference experience with an Influence Ecology conference is unlike anything I have experienced in 25 years of attending conferences. The content is specifically designed for the attendees as the conference aims of each attendee are known by the organisers. The content is specific, relevant, and delivered by world-class presenters. No two conferences are ever remotely alike. There is a natural evolution of Influence Ecology conferences that means I never want to miss one, no matter how many I have attended previously (currently: eight).

Ross Clennett

I had an absolute incredible experience at this conference. It really helped me demonstrate deliberate practice. Plus all the value I got out of the experience. How I can be so high cost to the transaction. Plus the benefit that every part of the transaction is important. Do not let your moods and hubris get in the way. Keywords are important to identify the language of the study. Slow it down to speed it up. Just one transaction at a time. Allow and get judges involved in the transaction early. Be careful to request to get the transaction back otherwise judges can go into inquiry overload paralysis, which in turn slows transaction down. Remember to concentrate and focus on your part of the transaction; only do your job. I learnt all this and much more but with this deliberate practice I am learning the real way to identify the brilliance of this study. Things are showing up all the time—a grasp to understand, application, embodiment—are all coming up in different ways in this remarkable work. So grateful to be a part of this sensational education.

Tom Galt

The Mid-Year Conference was an excellent event. I very much enjoyed connecting with other ambitious individuals and the opportunity to learn from them. The schedule was very well put together and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole event.

Tristan Swanwick

A wonderful environment to practice the elements of how a transaction should occur to meet our aims. Delivered with brilliance, the content showed each of us the true value and freedom of having your team or organisation run like a well-oiled machine, given the right environment to thrive. A fantastic opportunity that ought not to be missed!
