NLP Training | Leadership Coaching | Speaking



I am a certified NLP Coach, Neuro Pathway Mapping Expert, Kinesiologist and Trainer. I would like to be your team member on your path to a happy and successful life creating a lasting legacy to the community.

Markus first discovered the power of the mind after being introduced to The Silva Mind Control program and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) at the young age of 24. Since then, he has studied the impact of mindset on health, career and relationships. And, now with emotional intelligence and mindfulness valued more and more important, this knowledge is more relevant to you than ever.

Since his first introduction to NLP and the power of the mind, Markus has developed “Neuro Pathway Mapping”, a strategic thinking method that lets you transform yourself, your life and your business or career, from the inside out. Along with his Authentic Leadership Program, Markus offers this to Business Owners, Directors and CEO’s globally.

With the downturn in economy Markus faced new challenges: redundancy and bankruptcy.

This experience shaped his future as he learned how to turn survival into growth.

Markus learned that the answer is aligning what some call “The Trinity of Success”,  mindset, purpose and heart. This alignment is the foundation for strong emotional intelligence, resilience and success in your business, career and personal relationships.

For years Markus has worked with people to improve their health and vitality through massage, kinesiology, counselling, training, public speaking and coaching. The experiences his clients shared were always the same


  • Chronic stress at work,
  • Personal relationships breaking down,
  • Challenging relationships at work,
  • Financial pressure,
  • Feeling guilty for not looking after personal health with healthy diet and exercise,
  • Unhappy with their life/ career and not understanding why,
  • Denying their personal identity because of external pressures.

Markus van Driel Thought Strategist

The conclusion is always the same:

“I know I need to make changes. But I don’t know how, I feel stuck. What can I do to move forward? How can if find out what success looks like for me?”

Markus regularly featured on and has appeared in publications such as the Australian Financial Review.


“It is my vision to develop, authentic leaders who understand the power of personal development. Through a deep inner self awareness and strength, they can focus on building their business and supporting others in their team to reach their full potential.

It is my belief that true leaders have a desire to provide benefit to the community they live in. They aim to empower and engage their followers, encouraging their potential, growth and success, rather than feel threatened by it. The positive impact of this will extend far into the community.”

An expert in all aspects of leadership potential and vitality, Markus frequently delivers training, workshops and presentations to organisations aimed at helping others find the success and freedom in what they do.


’94    Graduated
Markus graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Hotel Management. This set him up to live his dream of living overseas. Now thanks to the internet, he is able to coach clients all over the world. At the same time when Markus first started to use the power of the mind to map new Neuro Pathways creating different outcomes in life.
’10 Coaching and Practitioner
Markus completed his training in Coaching, NLP Practitioner, Counseling and Kinesiology, building on his existing skills and experience, giving him the insight to facilitate change from the inside out using traditional as well as contemporary methods mapping new neuro pathways.
’12   Training and education
Solidifying his skills in training, Markus completed his Training and Assessment certification. This has now propelled him to be the engaging trainer and presenter he is, creating engagement, and driving change in organisations and individuals.


Markus has always been driven by the thought that how well you feel in life is determined by how good you feel about the life that you live. To find the answers Markus has done enormous amount of formal and informal study giving him the conviction that everybody can be in charge of their own mind. The mind controls the results you get.

What he learned was that success is influence by many things. He found the solution in a combination of Neuro Science, Epigentics, Positive Psychology, Neuro Linguistics, Energy Modalities and Traditional Eastern philosophies.

This lead him to combine these ideas into a new approach: Neuro Pathway Mapping.

Neuro Pathway Mapping targets the 95% of your brain that gives rise to your unconscious habits and behaviours. It is an intuitive programming
and re-wiring of the mind transforming your limiting thoughts, feelings and energy, into new thought strategies that are aligned with your desired future.

Not taking charge of your mind will lead to limited success, under-performance and unhappiness. Master your mind to be an authentic leader and live according to your own true values.
