NLP masters I would define as those who have truly understood the mechanics of NLP, taken it to its thoroughbred level, show us the awesome capabilites of NLP and thus inspire us to master NLP ourselves. NLP masters (or NLP gurus) are always very positive people who help others develop the tools to become positive themselves. Positive people have positive lives, this is undeniable. Sure, some of the masters have made a ridiculous amount of money doing what they do - but do they not deserve it?
The NLP masters I will discuss are three of the most important NLP experts of our time; Tony Robbins, Paul McKenna and Derren Brown. These men are commonly associated with the understanding and development of the human mind. Each of them are top of their respective fields and have gained an enormous amount of credibility, not least with myself.
NLP Master Tony Robbins
Tony Robbins is an American motivational speaker and successful self-help author. He is widely regarded as the most successful motivational speaker in the world. He has helped millions of people all over the world achieve their personal goals and improve their quality of life.
Tony Robbins learned NLP from one of the founders of NLP, a man called John Grinder. This, along with a keen understanding of the human mind, helped propel Tony to greatness in his field. Such is his reputation that he has been hired to develop many top-level athletes and sports teams in terms of mental preparation.

NLP Master Paul McKenna
Once the host of his own TV show The Hypnotic World of Paul McKenna, and street hypnosis show Street Hyp, Paul McKenna is perhaps now best known for his range of books, including bestsellers I can make you thin and I can make you rich. Paul's books are published in 30 languages, all over the world.
Paul McKenna leaned neuro-linguistic programming and hypnosis from one of NLP's co-creators, Richard Bandler. He has gained two doctorates (Ph.D) from two different universities, the second of which he gained with his 70,000 word thesis The Effects of Fixed Action Patterns and Neuro-Linguistic Programming in Determining Outcomes in Human Behaviour.
Paul McKenna's books are famous for a good reason - they are easy to read and seamlessly blended with NLP techniques which help the reader attain their goal without any effort. Click here to view our Paul McKenna Amazon Bookstore
NLP Master Derren Brown
Although Derren Brown is most famous for his fascinating television shows broadcast in the UK, he has a solid reputation for his unequaled development of NLP and hypnosis. In fact, Derren's effortless demonstration of NLP to manipulate the thoughts of his guest stars was what got me interested in NLP in the first place!
Derren Brown actually has a flexible view of NLP which is similar to my own. Rather than adhering to rigid methods set out by NLP's original creators, Derren uses wordplay that works well and has adapted a lot of NLP techniques to make them work a bit more seamlessly. It is for this reason that Derren's methods are my chosen schema for the techniques on this website. They work the best. It's as simple as that.
