Transforming Communication was developed by Certified NLP Trainer Dr Richard Bolstad, the director of Transformations International Consulting & Training Ltd, and the late Margot Hamblett. In developing the course design, Richard and Margot taught hundreds of seminars, to business teams, teaching faculties, parent groups, counsellors, health professionals and the public. They also taught these skills in challenging situations such as Sarajevo, in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Alan Fayter, director of Optimum Mind was certified as a Transforming Communication Instructor by Richard. Rigorous training ensures that Alan is able to deliver the seminar with clarity and impact. The seminar is based on the book Transforming Communication, a text used in degree training programs and schools to teach effective, leading edge skills for co-operative relationships. It has been used in large corporate organisations such as Bank of New Zealand and the New Zealand Retailers Association, and in large service organisations such as Wellink Trust, New Zealand Inland Revenue and numerous school districts in the USA and New Zealand.
