John and Kathleen LaValle

John and Kathleen LaValle run NLP Seminars Group International and handle the business part of NLP events in the United States as well as working as Dr. Bandler’s booking agent throughout the world.

John came across NLP by attending an “evening of NLP” type event and knew that he wanted more. He was involved in the corporate world working in human resources for a large company. He told his boss more than 20 years ago that he was going to take an NLP seminar and convinced his boss to attend with him.

John was a tenacious student, practicing and trying everything that he learned, sometimes using his skills on unwitting people in the produce department of grocery stores, (LoL,if you’ve been to an event you know this story).

To master each language pattern he often wrote hundreds of examples of each of the Milton Model patterns.

Currently John and Kathleen LaValle are Licensed Master Trainers of Neuro-Linguistic Programming and has been in the training & development field for more than twenty-five years and his mission was to develop and teach business applications of NLP including its use in sales and influence, manufacturing applications, team building, management and leadership skills.
