It’s hard to put Speechworks coach JD Clockadale into a box.

He is a Georgia Tech educated engineer, athlete, a nationally recognized sales trainer, and an author. Oh, and don’t forget he’s one of the founders of the City of Brookhaven.

But one thing we can say definitively about JD is that he’s a terrific corporate coach.

“I love working with people and helping them get better,” says JD. “Working as a coach is like waking up without an alarm clock.”

That’s not surprising, says Speechworks President Joey Asher. “JD’s broad experience has given him a great ability to connect with people. Not to mention he’s just hilarious. Combine that with his passion for teaching and you end up with someone who is uniquely qualified to help business people learn.”

JD’s background in engineering, sales and working with professionals on a daily basis also brings a depth of problem-solving skills to his clients. With a busy schedule and a wife and 3 kids, JD still finds time to volunteer for his city as a member of the Zoning Board of Appeals and as the President of the Brookhaven Police Foundation, Inc.

Check out his book “M.A.D. Time Ownership for Sales.”
