Biography – Jason Clarke – Director, Minds at Work

Since 2000, Jason has been a director of Minds at Work, a commercial collective of autonomous thinkers and problem solvers dedicated to supporting anyone interested in Making Things Better.

Their mission is to help people think and their work has involved them (in
one form or another) in just about every government department, many not-for-profit organisations and some of the largest corporations on the planet.

While establishing Minds at Work, Jason also worked as a lecturer teaching innovation, logic and problem solving at Melbourne Business School, in courses of his own design. He was a guest lecturer in innovation at the Australian Graduate School of Entrepreneurship and for the Stern Business School of New York.

In 2003 he co-founded (with Larissa Brown) the Future Environmental Leader’s project, which quickly blossomed to become the multi-award winning Centre for Sustainability Leadership. Jason is still an active contributor to the project. In 1994 he became the creative director of AAV Australia, the country’s largest multimedia production company. He was responsible for the creative output of 200 media professionals on big budget creative projects for large business and government clients.

From 1988 to 1994 Jason worked as an idea merchant and freelance wordsmith
for the commercial film and advertising industry, at least by day. At night he developed and taught Creative Writing and Thinking at Holmesglen TAFE.

Between 1984 and 1988 he was a Producer at Australian Business Theatre, one of the most creative and commercially savvy successful media production houses in the country.

From the late 1970’s to the mid-1980’s Jason was a stage manager, presenting and touring everything from kid’s pantomime and stage magic to Shakespeare and Grand Opera. He worked with Playbox, MTC, St Martins Theatre, The Pram Factory and the Victoria State Opera.
