Public Speaking
Dr. Clayton is living his film and education passion by running FilmDoc, LLC. In this role, he provides coaching to firms who wish to maximize their films’ effectiveness, provides leadership training, speaks in public on film’s impact, and produces inspiring documentaries. His approach to maximize film’s impact is centered on his “Total Recall” evidence- based model. During his diverse 30-year HR career, much of it in global leadership roles, Doug was fortunate to work in every HR function. Highlights include producing creative training videos, public speaking, mentoring younger employees, and training design and delivery. Examples include culture-changing training focused on change management, strategy, stakeholder centricity, and knowledge sharing. Doug has conducted Myers-Briggs (MBTI) for hundreds of individuals and teams, Franklin Covey’s 4 Essential Roles of Leadership, 5 Choices for Extraordinary Productivity, and 7 Habits for Highly Effective People. His ability to relate to audience members and use of humor help to make the highly interactive workshops effective and enjoyable. A native of New Jersey, Doug earned his doctorate degree from the University of Pennsylvania (PennCLO executive program) and is an alumnus of the Wharton Business School. His doctoral dissertation topic, Total Recall: Using Film to Enhance Learning, involved a global experiment, the largest on record, that resulted in empirical evidence that using film in a company learning setting can enhance learning. Doug also earned an M.S. in Human Resources Development from Villanova University. Doug conducts ongoing research, has been published, and has spoken publicly nationwide on the topic of film and learning as well as Human Resources leadership in venues from New York to California.
