The Wellbeing Venture

Alan Clark


About Me: In the words of the great Ronan Keating, Life is a Rollercoaster. I want to get up every day and just have a good time. Who doesnt?

Im the guy who tries to make you smile. I tell really good bad jokes. I happy cry at Mr Hollands Opus and my favourite film is The Princess Bride. If a meeting lasts more than an hour Ill pretend I need to go to the toilet and leave for 20 minutes.

Following a 25 year career in PE Teaching, Sports Development, Physical Activity and Lecturing, I co-founded 2 wellbeing businesses, Take Your Marks and The Wellbeing Venture, with my flatmate from University.

The Wellbeing Venture provides wellbeing support to business clients. However, the business is built on strong social giving principles.

We see huge inequality in our education system. The gap between the most deprived and most affluent continues to grow and that, for us, is an unacceptable situation.

As a result we have committed that The Wellbeing Venture will support Take Your Marks in providing free resources to schools.
