    Courtney Clark

    Courtney Clark designs her presentations to help organizations adapt to change and crisis when the stakes are high. Resilience in the face of major stress is possible, and she knows how to get it done. Audience members who hear her presentations say her strategies make it easier to manage change, cope with anxiety, bounce back, let go of “the plan,” and get clarity when life, love or work throw you a curveball. Clark loves to work with Pillar Professionals, people whose roles require they remain solid, like a pillar, regardless of chaos or change around them. The people in these roles are called on to be highly resilient because of the pressure of their work and their critical position at the foundation of their organization.
