Dave Clark is a man of extraordinary will and perseverance, stricken with polio at a young age, he has grown to accomplish many things in his lifetime. From being top relief pitcher of the year to Envoy Coach for Major League Baseball International you will see that he is a compelling speaker with a motivating story.
As an infant, Dave contracted polio that stunted his growth and left him without the full use of his legs. But despite that, and perhaps because of it, he was driven to excel in physical competition against so-called able-bodied people.
"I would highly recommend having Mr. Clark speak as part of a special program at your organization. His intelligence, clarity, and positive message would make for an excellent addition to any organization’s list of guest speakers.”
Bruce Markusen, Manager of Programs, Hall of Fame.
It is hard to imagine a more impactful speaker than Dave. The honesty and emotion of his story is dramatically inspiring. The incredible determination he showed in overcoming his circumstance (stricken with polio as a young boy) to become a professional athlete is nothing short of amazing. His mindset of focusing on what he could do instead of on what he could not, is one that any group, team or organization will benefit from hearing. Apply his coaching and anything is possible.
