009: Creative and Personal Freedom Through Understanding Your Energetic Make-Up with Clark Speake

Sep 01, 2020

Finding herself at a crossroads in her career where she observed that the closer she got to “success” the further she felt from her joy and freedom, Clark Speake eventually sought coaching to help her overcome these obstacles. Clark fell in love with the process of energy coaching and the transformational results she experienced through creating awareness and acceptance and then translating these into personal choice. In addition to her day job, Clark now works with clients at all levels of success as a coach for creative leadership, helping them find their authentic voice and connecting with their true power. Kerry Clark Speake is a product designer, creative director and coach for creative leadership with over 20 years in the apparel and footwear industry.  Currently she serves as a Senior Design Director in the Art Department at Nike and has worked for companies both locally and globally such as Adidas, Ralph Lauren and Levis.
