ANLP Ambassador for Northern Ireland

Michael Dunlop

Michael Dunlop

Michael Dunlop is a (twice) certified NLP Trainer, Master Practitioner and Professional Change Consultant who is proud to be a Trainer Member of ANLP.

He is passionate about NLP and its practical applications for helping individuals and organisations to become more effective in leading and creating change and making a positive difference for themselves and others.

On Michael’s own journey, he has had the privilege of working with some of the most outstanding teachers and practitioners in NLP and is committed to promoting integrity and excellence in the field.

In 2011, Michael and his wife were devastated by the loss of their beautiful daughter, Orlagh Rose, after an incredibly brave 3 month battle with a rare immune condition called HLH.  Orlagh was such an incredible character, full of joy and colour and life. She filled every moment of every day and even during her illness she inspired so many people around her with her courage and determination.

Inspired by Orlagh’s bright spirit and having met so many unsung heroes on their own journey, Michael founded OR Training & Personal Development Ltd as a Professional Change Consultancy to help people and organisations who are making a difference in Northern Ireland and to pass on the skills and best practice of NLP in a practical and ethical way.

With our particular expertise in NLP, Leadership & Change Management skills and methodologies, we help our clients to communicate, act and lead more effectively in either a personal or professional capacity, to achieve evidence based results and to meet what challenges may lie ahead with confidence. 

We have worked 'in-house’ with some of NI's most recognisable organisations in the Public, Private and Third Sectors and we are currently developing a unique NLP research and modelling project for political transformation and civic leadership.

In addition to Michael’s own Coaching and Professional Consultancy work, he is also a Visiting Lecturer at the University of Ulster.  Michael is a Level 7 qualified Director, Consultant and Facilitator with over 14 years operational and professional experience across the Financial, Housing, Learning & Development and Arts sectors in key strategic and management posts. He has an MSc in Management & Corporate Governance and a BA (Hons) in English and Politics.  He is a Graduate Member of the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators and a Fellow of the RSA.

‘Integrity and a commitment to excellence are vital to the long term future development of NLP and I am therefore both delighted and honoured to have been invited to become an International Ambassador for ANLP.  

ANLP’s ethics, professionalism, wealth of knowledge and commitment to independence make it a vital bridge between NLP Professionals and the wider public.

I very much look forward to representing ANLP and helping to develop its presence in Northern Ireland as the trusted industry body for a thriving community of NLP Professionals who are committed to excellence in their field.’
