A rags to riches biography a€“ amusing and inspiring in equal measure Belt and Braces chronicles the life of Douglas Clark, a poorly educated man who was born into poverty in a country village and went on to become an inspirationally successful businessman. From mending lawnmowers as a child to running a huge network of motor dealerships and a property empire as his journey progressed. His methods were home grown and unconventional, his risk taking enormous but always calculated and he always played the game by his own rules. His lifelong caveat being that once a course of action was decided upon then he applied belt and braces to it. In essence this meant contingency against every conceivable adversity. Alongside the business growth, his private life exploits will raise many a smile. The book covers seven decades, up to the present and parallels what was happening in Douga€™s life alongside national and international events. You dona€™t need to be a car buff or even a budding entrepreneur to appreciate it; merely enjoy the journey through life of a very talented, amusing and unique man.... in a#39;add-onsa#39; that had nothing to do with our core business of servicing cars, but were an extra service and profit centre in themselves. ... to come to us rather than travel to one of the main dealers in Birmingham, Redditch or Stourbridge - but not anywhere near enough for my liking. ... to the main board, which included the very astute Trevor Taylor, the then CEO (later he went on to be CEO of Toyota GB ).
