Ron Clark

RON CLARK is a New York Times bestselling author whose book The Essential 55 has sold more than one million copies and has been published in twenty-five different countries. He has been featured on Today, CNN, and Oprah, where Oprah Winfrey named him her first “Phenomenal Man.” In 2007, he founded the Ron Clark Academy, where each year he trains thousands of educators and business people, both at the school’s home base in Atlanta, Georgia, as well as around the world. In addition to his teaching work, Clark consults with Fortune 500 companies, small businesses, and individuals, helping them work better, faster, and more effective. Move Your Bus was derived from his work with those businesses, when he realized that the tools he uses to achieve peak performance don’t just work in the classroom—they also work in the boardroom and beyond.
