“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”
- Sir Winston Churchill, Former British Prime Minister
Trevor Clark is a business and executive coach, educator, speaker and brand strategist.
A native of Durban, his family moved to Johannesburg and then to Switzerland, where he completed his schooling. Upon his return to South Africa, he earned both IMM and MBM diplomas in marketing and business management respectively through Damelin Business School, beginning working life in 1993 as a commercial accounts analyst for ABSA bank. Electing to specialise in marketing and sales, he gained extensive sales experience in the engineering sector prior to accepting a marketing position with Babcock. In addition to Trevor’s primary role, he created a national Used Equipment initiative and successfully led the Aftersales division’s Parts unit.
In January 2001, Trevor took on a General Manager’s post in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia – an opportunity that allowed him to develop his skills and again experience new places and cultures first hand. Trevor was later headhunted by Origin Communications Group, a respected international corporate design and brand consultancy. As part of Origin’s expansion strategy, he opened an office in Dubai and successfully grew the branch to such an extent that it became the company’s head office, with Trevor as co-owner and Managing Director.
Although successful in the international arena, Trevor had long wished to return to South Africa – a dream he realised in 2009 after studying to become a business coach and being awarded ActionCOACH certification. On first encountering ActionCOACH, he not only recognised the tremendous benefit of hiring a business coach but also saw the potential in personally helping other business owners and executives in the key areas of time, team and money
