Clive is co-author (along with Mike Pratt, Kevin Roberts and Ed Weymes) of the Harper Collins' Business Book of 2000, 'Peak Performance, Business Lessons from the World's Top Sports Organizations'. The book tells the stories of 10 worldwide sporting organisations that have experienced unparalled long-term success. It is the result of in-depth interviews with the inspirational players both on and off the field within each organisation and details the consistent concepts that have led to their sustained success. The result is the elite theory of Peak Performing Organisations (PPO).
In their joint keynote presentations and seminars Clive Gilson and Mike Pratt explain the key concepts of PPOs which have led to the sustained success of these organisations which include Team New Zealand, The Australian Cricket Board, FC Bayern Munich, the Atlanta Braves and many more.

"Alice and Nancy were very professional and helpful and answered every question our organisation had. Even though we had a slight mishap which was out of everyone's control (Dr Michael's flight was delayed for about four hours) Nancy called me straight away to talk about alternative options and swiftly organised a partial refund for the service he was not able to provide. We were very grateful for this level of professionalism! Thanks so much!"
