Clinton De Vere has almost thirty years experience providing intercultural and creativity coaching and training to leaders, senior managers, employees and students in business, government and universities in Germany, Japan, Thailand, Cambodia, Japan, and Australia.
He brings to his intercultural training the experience of having grown up outside his home culture, and then later of living and working in different cultures. In his undergraduate degree he studied Anthropology. His creativity coaching is informed by his own art practice and by his postgraduate studies in art. His intercultural workshops and coaching cover such topics as cultural dimensions and global business, managing across cultures, cultural adjustment and working in international teams.
Clinton De Vere is more than a coach. He has the ability, thanks to his depth, to look behind the façade of everyday life built by stress and pressure.
Clinton understands like no other how to give a new meaning to self-confidence through appreciation.
Clinton De Vere ist mehr als ein Coach. Er hat die Fähigkeit dank seiner Tiefe auch hinter die durch Stress und Druck errichtete Fassade des Alltags blicken zu können. Clinton versteht es wie kaum ein anderer durch Wertschätzung, Selbstbewusstsein eine neue Bedeutung zu geben.
Katharina Meisel Head of Corporate Media & Branding METRO AG Düsseldorf, Germany
As my communication coach, Clinton guided me through a challenging professional situation and together we worked on my English presentations and international negotiations with multicultural stakeholders.
Clinton’s personality is characterised by a high level of empathy, patience and the ability to listen combined with the ability to strongly motivate his coachees. His ability to reflect on people and situations led to a high level of insight and support for my situation.
Through his support, I not only became more confident in my communication skills but his knowledge and coaching on intercultural negotiations have become invaluable to me.
I can highly recommend working with Clinton.

Clinton De Vere provided me with excellent intercultural training and coaching aimed at building my intercultural communication skills and knowledge.
Using role plays, intercultural business case studies and cultural comparatives, the process of building my intercultural skills was expedited. Together we worked on all aspects of my intercultural communications including meetings, presentations and emails. This was invaluable to me.
We also examined the different components of a strategies for developing Cultural Intelligence (CQ). His approach and methodology made the training enjoyable and effective. Since the training I feel more confident in my dealings with international clients and teams.
I would unreservedly recommend Mr De Vere to anyone planning to undertake intercultural training and coaching.
