ROBERT DUNLOP BIOGRAPHY

Robert Dunlop is a teacher, curriculum consultant, author and inspiring speaker who believes that there is nothing more powerful than an educator who loves coming to school each day. His personal journey and his work with thousands of teachers, principals and support staff has given him insight into the importance of finding more happiness in education. Robert channels his passion for helping others into engaging, informative, research-based professional development that always leaves his audience feeling empowered and inspired to make positive changes in their lives.

Robert Dunlop’s Journey in education has been one of peaks and valleys. His work in schools and his partnership with the Terry Fox Foundation to create Terry Fox Lesson Plans for educators around the world, led to him being honoured with the Prime Minister’s Award for Teaching Excellence. Although Robert has enjoyed many peaks throughout his career, he credits his valleys for his greatest learning. Through his speaking engagements and his writing, Robert shares, in an open and authentic way, how he has been able to reconnect to his love of teaching and make his own well-being a priority.

In 2020, Robert Dunlop released his first book, STRIVE for Happiness in Education. It has been used in school districts internationally to improve staff well-being and school culture. The layout of the book lends itself nicely for book studies and ongoing professional development in staff meetings. He hopes that through these programs, educators will make happiness a priority in their lives and share their learning in the classroom.

As a speaker, Robert Dunlop is a natural storyteller. He has a unique ability to quickly connect to his audience through his willingness to be open, honest and authentic about his experiences in education and life. His audience will be laughing one moment, and eyes filled with tears the next. His goal is not only to let his audience know that they are deserving of more happiness in their lives but to give them practical ideas on how they can start to make this shift.

Robert Dunlop prides himself on delivering meaningful professional development using the skills he developed in the classroom. Each workshop is thoughtfully designed to get participants to reflect, share and learn together. The goal of each workshop is to help participants to reconnect to what brings them joy at work and to give them new job-embedded ideas that will bring them more happiness in their work and professional lives.

Although Robert Dunlop comes from an educational background, his message has been very well received outside of teaching. The companies that he has worked with rave about the impact he has made with their staff in a very short period of time. Regardless of what we do for a living,

Robert Dunlop believes that we are at our best when we are happy.

After reading STRIVE for Happiness in Education and then getting to hear Robert Dunlop speak about it in person; I felt revived, refreshed and excited in my approach to the new school year and my overall career in education. Being in the mid-career phase, this picked me up of positivity and helpful strategies was truly right on the mark. His message combined truthful observations with realistic strategies and techniques that can be utilized and put into action immediately. Thank you Rob!! Keep up the meaningful work.

With the objective of supporting our employees in finding balance and perspective in managing during very hectic times I invited Rob to speak to my government relations team on the importance of seeking happiness in their work.  Although Robert Dunlop comes from a teaching background, he was able to quickly connect with his audience of pharmaceutical professionals.  I received tremendous feedback on the experience, some described him as the best speaker we had ever had. The positive impact led us to subsequently invite Rob to return to speak to our broader organization at our annual National Meeting. Rob easily distills and contexts several theories and concepts into a very simple and...
