“We’ve all heard presentations and speeches, but they don’t always leave a lasting impression. Courtney has a gift – her presentation was animated, engaging, touching, personal and interactive, not unlike improv comedy. She reached her audience both in content and in her presentation style.”

About Courtney

Courtney Clark is the luckiest unlucky person in the world. At age 26, Courtney beat melanoma. But five years post-cancer, routine follow-up scans detected an aneurysm in her brain that was close to hemorrhaging. Courtney underwent a series of brain surgeries at age 31 to remove the aneurysm. She is the author of two books on resilience – The Giving Prescription, and The Successful Struggle: Powerful Techniques to Achieve Accelerated Resilience.


Today, Courtney works with teams and individuals who want to adapt faster and achieve more. Her presentations are designed to help you adapt when the stakes are high and life doesn’t go according to plan. She is passionate about sharing her techniques for bouncing back, letting go of the plan, and getting clarity when life, love, or work send you on a detour.
