Clyde Campbell was diagnosed at the age of 44 with Parkinson’s disease.
Clyde founded his own company, Machinery Automation & Robotics which grew to 100 staff, servicing Australian and international clients with high-tech automation and robotic solutions. His vision for technology was the driving force behind his rapid progression from Engineer to CEO.
Clyde has an entrepreneurial spirit and a vision for the future. He decided not to sit back and wait for the rest of the world to find a cure but to join the action. Clyde launched Shake it up Foundation Australia and partnered with The Michael J. Fox Foundation to increase awareness and funding on matched basis for Parkinson’s research targeted at better treatments and ultimately a cure.
Australia has some of the world’s leading scientists specialising in Parkinson’s. What Australia needs now is financial assistance to accelerate this research. Clyde’s vision in establishing Shake It Up Australia Foundation has created an opportunity for everyone in Australia to make a difference.
