ABOUT STEVE CLARKE
Entrepreneur, inspirational speaker, business mentor and specialist in the field of sales and marketing.
Author, of “How to thrive… not just survive” and a regular columnist for numerous publications.
As is often the case with entrepreneurs around the world, Steve wasn’t gripped or inspired by formal education. He didn’t go to college or study at university, in fact he left school at the age of 16 with no career path or obvious opportunities ahead of him.
Not prepared to just accept the hand he’d been dealt, aged 18 he became engrossed in the power of personal development and goal setting. By his 19th birthday with a “yes I can” attitude and determination to succeed he found his niche in sales. Within 12 months he was invited to become a director of his first company.
Since then he has owned and operated businesses in the UK and USA. He has taken them from start-up to stock market flotation.
He helped grow his last UK business from scratch to over £30 million in annual revenues in just 8 years, becoming one of the “Times Top 100″ fastest growing and profitable SME’s in the country in the process.
In 2005 the company was sold and he was able to retire at the age of 45.
Steve is now retained by a number of 1-2-1 mentoring clients who want to take their business to the next level and turn to Steve for his guidance and inspiration. He runs a number of business mentoring groups for like-minded entrepreneurs and speaks at seminars and conferences all around the world.
Over recent months he has delivered keynote talks and worked with companies all across the UK and Europe as well as further a field in The Middle East, South Africa, China, India, Australia, New Zealand.
Steve lives by his mantra…
