The Performance Partnership


The Performance Partnership (TPP) is one of the world’s leading training companies, specialising in teaching NLP, Time Line Therapy®, Hypnosis and NLP Coaching. 

Master Trainer David Shephard launched the business in 1993. Since then, the business has taught thousands of people how to improve their career, health and/or relationships using the power of NLP, Time Line Therapy® & Hypnosis.  

Thousands of people in the UK, and many more globally, can legitimately claim to be Trainers of the subject matter.  Since 1975, only a few have been given the title of Master Trainer. It is only bestowed to those who have demonstrated a phenomenal theoretical and practical understanding of the subject. As such, David is the one of the longest standing Trainers of such quality on the planet. 

The business’s mission statement is simple.  It is "to make the seemingly impossible, possible".  For many clients, personally and/or professionally, they experience just that. David brings a blend of entertainment, passion, practicality, and pioneering expertise to the training and it is what makes the business a success. 

The business identified that people going on their training courses wanted to improve their love, wealth, or health. These people are called "individual free thinkers". The Performance Partnership also offers a number of short courses into being a better presenter, salesperson and coach.
