Every year Clayton spends on average 1200 hours front of room speaking, training and facilitating. His thought provoking questions, in private dialogue and stimulating classes help individuals, teams and companies to grow beyond boundaries of their perceived knowledge and capabilities, so they achieve their true hearts desires.

Clayton loves to be different, challenge the status quo and inspire the people and companies he works with to explore new ways of thinking, attitudes and behaviours transforming lives and results for the long term. He has been described as someone who “speaks the truth, shares from his heart and genuinely cares about people.’
