Because of Pj's belief in me, I was given opportunities from a young age to work with some of our industry's best. This helped me gain the skills, confidence and knowledge I have today. Pj invests in his clients because he believes in their potential. He definitely helped me on my journey to realizing mine.

Pj has played a major role in our careers as singers dancers and actresses. This industry can be very fickle and Pj has always been there and he believed in us from the very beginning. As an agent teacher and mentor Pj has extraordinary knowledge and he is also a wonderful person to be around. We relocated to Los Angeles 3 years ago and have dealt with all walks of life and many different personalities and leaning from Pj even just on how to deal with people as he dealt with us with kindness and support was a very valuable lesson to us and for our future as artists. Even though we are out of site and out of mind across the sea, we still feel his support after all these years.

PJ believed in me long before I ever really did and always pushed me to follow my dreams. He gave me countless opportunities to work and develop my skills in performance and as a mentor he was always positive, constructive and inspiring.

PJ's incredible work ethic, passion and dedication to his clients is what makes him so special and such a breath of fresh air in this industry. He has the ability to nurture talent and give people the confidence & skills they need to make it in whatever field they choose.

If it wasn't for PJ's love, guidance and honesty I truly don't think I would be where I am today and be so sure of who I am and what I want. I am blessed to call him a friend and mentor!

I cant say enough about PJ and his ability to instil belief, confidence, and most of all a real understanding of the industry. You must understand that PJ has been there at every step of the career that i have experienced. Not only as a mentor, but a true friend. PJ has truly helped me with the tools to overcome any situation not only in the audition process (Which can be very daunting no matter who you are) but having the people skills to help make those big decisions. Do yourself a favour and attach yourself to this man and the sky's the limit. I am now on the West End doing The lead role in "Dirty Dancing" and am blessed to now be in this situation.

Rockell Williamson

Without a doubt PJ Clake was one of the main people who helped mould a wonderful career for me in Entertainment. Soon after arriving back in Australia from the Moulin Rouge in Paris he helped nurture and guide the next steps in my career. He helped me with the confidence to look beyond just dance and challenge myself in other areas including Acting, Musical Theatre and Fashion. He was always at the forefront of the industry in terms of knowing trends and how best to market me to advertising clients, casting agents and directors. After a fruitful career in Entertainment I am now the International Director of Xtend Barre and I feel that many of the qualities that I use in my corporate role daily have stemmed from the experiences and the confidence I gained from my association with PJ.
