He has also mentored and worked closely with elite athletes competing in Commonwealth Games, World Championships, Pan Pacific Swimming Championships, and the Super 12 Grand Finals. Clark was presented with the Australian Sports Medal by the Governor General for his contribution to sport in Australia.

In addition to working with elite athletes, Dr Clark Perry completed an assignment as Chief Operating Officer of a large national commercial law firm where he was able to apply his principles and practices in a remarkable turnaround performance.  He became a director of a global consultancy for exceptional performance, that helps leaders and their teams deliver results in three of the hardest areas: leading, inspiring change and driving sales growth.

He also holds a Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy. Together with Andy Shea, Dr Clark Perry wrote Elite: 11 Steps to Success in Business, the Arts and Sport.

Clark Perry talks about:

When the going gets tough, get hardy - despite the need for rational thinking, and action to mitigate potential losses and capitalize on hidden opportunities, volatility in financial and equity markets highlights the reactive nature of many leaders in uncertain times.

Clark Perry reveals global research conducted into the attitudes and behaviours that deliver exceptional performance in the face of adversity. This research demonstrates that Mental Toughness can be measured and developed, both individually and culturally through MT Leadership. Perry examines what it is that makes some leaders hardy or mentally tough instead of getting caught up in the hysteria. And, the secrets to creating a resilient staff that bounce back and continually exceed expectations?
