Bevon David Williams wears many hats. He is a husband, father, therapist, coach and entrepreneur.
What many would not know, is that he was one this country’s best junior athletes, representing this nation, in the long and triple jumps in the early 2000s ending at the Carifta Games and Pan Am Games in 2009.
Williams is a very humble young man from Point Fortin and a registered Sports Therapist with SMA/The Association For Soft Tissue Therapist UK. He is also the public relations officer (PRO) for the Caribbean Association of Massage & Bodywork Practitioners.
Williams owns ProSport Clinic TT (PSCTT) Ltd, a mobile physical therapy clinic, that delivers a number of different modalities/treatment. The aim of the clinic is the holistic development of individuals, this means not only a healthy body but also mind and soul.
He treats sports and orthopaedic cases and has broadened his scope to include health and wellness with a focus on osteopathic manipulation and sports medicine.
“The mission of ProSport Clinic TT Ltd is to express our creativity to find unique solutions for health and the well being of the individual. The company utilises different modalities in the treatment and prevention of injuries and pain. PSCTT Ltd overall aim is to help the client learn basic information on injury care and prevention,” said Williams who has excellent communication skills and noted that he loves to speak.
His deepest dream is “to improve the standard of health care, risk management, injury prevention and rehabilitation in the country and to the wider world”. He encourages each and everyone to - “Live life in such a way that you’ll be remembered for your kindness, compassion, fairness, character and benevolence.”
Words of wisdom, if accepted.
As a child, Williams’ desire was to work for himself and always be of service to others. He felt that he would either work in the health care services or be a lawyer. His motivation to start his own company came when he wanted to be of service but was unable to find jobs in his area of study. He thought that if no one would hire him, he would hire himself. That is how PSCTT Ltd was born.
When asked about his achievement, Williams said, “I had a lot of persons that impacted my life in many ways but none like my late big brother Dexter.”
Williams’ late older brother, Dexter, always told him that he could rule the world if he wanted to. His brother supported him in everything and when he passed in 2008, he knew he had to fulfil the mission at hand. He wanted his life and work to be a reflection of the love and support his brother showed to him over the years. Williams, to date, is on track and his intention is not to fail.
One of the main challenges he had to overcome is his faith in God and understanding that man’s time is not God’s time. He, however, takes heart by believing in God’s word that says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths - Proverbs 3:5-6.”
Williams’ work-life has reminded him of the track and field circuit and this has taught him that life is a marathon and not a sprint, saying: “Enjoy the life you have now because you can lose the comforts that you have taken for granted.”
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, he helped develop and implement COVID-19 protocols for many non-profit organisations (NPOs), as well as his home club Cougars track and field club, where he is the chairperson for their health & safety committee.
Some of his achievements have been share numerous times both on social media and printed press. He has a passion for sports and that is very much so evident in his work. He has also launched a free online platform providing clients and athletes with guidance in training, injury care and rehabilitation in this time on his personal Facebook account. He calls it ‘Giving Back’.
He has done a lot of work with the Ministry of Sports and Youth Affair, recently renamed the Ministry of Sports and Community Development, T&T Olympic Committee (TTOC) and many other national governing organisations (NGOs), over the years.
His professional experience also includes national team physiotherapist at the 2014 Caribbean Unified Teachers (CUT) Games, sports therapist for the Point Fortin Aqua Darts swim team, a National Association of Athletics Administration (NAAA) kids athletics’ coach, Vessigny Secondary School Swim team physiotherapist and sports therapist for Cougars club, to name a few.
Williams has credited his success to his loving and supporting wife Deka and daughters, Blessing and Divine.
