The Presenter – James Clark

My passion for over 20 years has been coaching and mentoring kids and elite athletes to build their confidence and self belief.

Working across different cultures and age groups, I have found the one constant we all have is an internal confidence switch. However, few of us have learned how to flick that switch, stand tall and be the person we know we can be.

I created The Mental Switch to teach new learnings around how the mind and body works together, combined with ancient eastern philosophies around our internal wellbeing and spiritual connections.

With a huge love for sports of all kinds, I am fortunate to live in beautiful Brisbane with my wife L and our four wonderful children.

“We wanted to pass on our sincere thanks for making tonight so special for Stephan. You went above and beyond, and we’re sincerely thankful. We think you’re an amazing coach and mentor. Thanks again James.”
