Michael Dunlop, Founder and Director of OR is a (twice) certified NLP Trainer and Master Practitioner. In addition to his Coaching and Professional Consultancy work, Michael is also a Visiting Lecturer at the University of Ulster; An Associate Consultant for The Chief Executives Forum & The Health & Social Care Leadership Centre; and has worked with some of NI’s most recognisable organisations in the Public, Private and Community & Voluntary Sectors.
Michael is also the Irish Ambassador for the Association For Neuro-Linguistic Programming (ANLP), the Association for NLP Professionals.
He is passionate about NLP and its practical applications for helping people and organisations to become more effective in leading and creating change and making a positive difference for themselves and others.
'With NLP change need not be a daily struggle fuelled by willpower; change is within my own reach and I can choose how I feel, behave and react. Michael shines with enthusiasm, integrity and generosity of spirit. He is a great teacher of NLP and creates a safe space for learning and practice.'
'I first got in touch with Michael about a year ago as I've always been interested in NLP but didn't know much about it. I finally recently attended his Live It or Lead It programme and the results for me began immediately. The biggest tribute I could pay to Michael is to say that he's a guy who knows so much he could bowl you over; but he doesn't. Like any good facilitator or coach Michael finds a way to transfer learning in an engaging and simple fashion.'
'Michael is one of those rare individuals who can captivate an audience with outstanding presentation skills and make the complex seem simple. He has an expert knowledge of NLP which together with his passion for the subject and his skill in training makes him an excellent trainer for anyone seeking to learn more about NLP.'
'Some people you remember. Michael made a powerful impression on me the moment he started presenting. He not only cares genuinely about his work and those he leads but is an expert NLP Trainer, a professional and genuinely honest person. Michael embodies the best of NLP, high values, skill, is a model of success, a fantastic Coach and a really nice guy'
Michael is one of the most inspirational trainers I have ever had the pleasure of training with, the training is informal but packed full of practical knowledge and very key information to be the best version of a practitioner you can be. The 9 months I spent training with Michael were really worth it, not only benefitting my life but those of my family and others I have coached along the way. Couldn't recommend Michael more highly.
'Michael is an exceptional communicator, who is passionate about NLP and very knowledgeable on the subject. The combination makes for an outstanding trainer!'
