Clayton specialises in understanding the reasons for negativity, and why it causes people and companies to sabotage success, relationships, health, well being and finances.

In his work, he helps individuals and teams overcome negativity that stifles progress by explaining with solutions the effects on the physical body, the mind and how it interacts with and impacts on life, business performance and corporate cultures.

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.’

A member of an audience recently said the following about her experience of Clayton – ‘I heard Clayton speak publicly for the first time this summer and was inspired by what I heard. He’s one of those people who just lights up a room and you know that he is a genuine, humble and gracious spirit.’
