When Jim Clark arrived in Shenyang China in 1987, he had no idea that he would settle in Asia, that he would start a consulting company focusing on creative innovation, that he would live in Taiwan for more than 25 years, or that his name would change from Jim to Jimbo. If he had known any of these things, he probably wouldn’t have gotten off the airplane. Luckily, he didn’t and he has been living, working and innovating in Asia since.

Brains on the Beach Consulting Ltd. Co-Founder

Brains on the Beach (affectionately known as BoB) is an organization dedicated to the art of co-creation.

Co-founders James Bishop, Glenn Wilkinson and Jimbo Clark figured that the best audience to study the challenges of co-creation would be find people who are famous for not working well together and work with them. So they invited a group of consultants together and had them co-create solutions for various non-profit organizations. It worked so well, that BoB events are happening on a regular basis. More than 100 Brains have participated in BoB events in Hong Kong, Taipei, Shanghai, Malaysia, Bangkok and the United States.

Jimbo collaborated on the design and delivery of the Galaxy Entertainment Group's Leadership Development Program which in 2015, was recognized by the Human Resource Innovation Awards for Excellence in Leadership Development.

Jimbo partnered with Paradigm Consulting to work with Hong Kong Land’s senior management team to set and communicate their VMV throughout the organization. The program was so successful that it was repeated in Bangkok, Singapore and Indonesia with HKL’s joint venture partners there.

Strategic Planning Process

Nestle Malaysia was facing a number of serious issues when Jimbo was brought in to facilitate their annual plans meeting. In the jungles outside of KL, Jimbo ran the first iteration of the “Marketplace of Ideas,” an invigorating and engaging ideation, decision making and communication process. The process was so impactful that Nestle used the Marketplace to communicate the change to 5,000 employees. Today, the Marketplace has become a part of the Nestle Malaysia’s corporate culture.

Executive Leadership Development

The Galaxy Macau was going through rapid growth and found it easier to build a new property than it was to lead it. Jimbo was brought in to design and facilitate two years of executive leadership and team development programs across the property that reduced turnover and increased leadership and team effectiveness.
