In the beginning, sticks and stonesTerry Neason is Scottish and spent her childhood in a raunchy housing scheme in Glasgow. Terry says, "I always used humour to steer clear of sticky situations. I shot from the lip, as opposed to the hip"
Learning the hard way
At 16, she turned her back on the street fights, left home and ventured to London for the first time, where she added to her life experience by working in New Horizon, a centre dealing with drug abuse and homeless youths. Then going on to work with ex-prisoners in R.A.P. Radical Alternatives to Prison, dealing with re-homing and employment issues.
Stage & Screen
One of her biggest dreams was to sing, write and act. However, previously, music had been disallowed as a specialist subject in school. Undeterred, Terry went on to develop her talent and performing style.
With no formal training, Terry began her singing and acting career with two of Scotland's top companies; 7:84 Theatre Co. and Wildcat Stage Productions. Both companies being known for their innovative shows, which tackled social and political issues of the time. She hosted her own 6 part television series of chat/music/comedy, for STV, called The Terry Neason Show.
Having a interest in technology and computing, Terry has combined song and narration on the App she developed for Android.
Producing, Selling & Negotiating
Her professional journey took her into the business of managing her own company, Wee One Productions, for 15 years; leading a team, which produced highly acclaimed shows for Corporate Events and Theatre. It was at this time Terry learned a lot about selling and negotiating when dealing with Theatres and International Festivals. The award winning performances captivating audiences from Europe to the USA and from Canada to Singapore.
NLP Techniques - simply the best bits"At first I was sceptical about Neuro Linguistic Programming, thinking it wasn't for me. However, I am glad I opened my mind to acquiring knowledge of these excellent techniques. I enjoyed the mind body connection aspects and effective use of language and went on to become an NLP Master Practitioner. I do not live and breathe NLP; I simply implement what works best for me personally and offer these effective techniques to my clients."
