David Rendall- 

David Rendall. Randall. Randell. Rendell. Reynolds. Whatever. No one knows how to pronounce his last name.

David’s mission in life is to be hilarious and helpful.

He’s a standup comedian with a doctorate in management. A class clown turned leadership professor, he went from disrupting classes to teaching classes to disrupting companies and conferences from Portland to Paris to Pakistan.

After being criticized and punished his whole life for being hyperactive, he now channels his frantic energy to compete in Ironman triathlons and ultramarathons.

He wears more pink than the average middle-aged man. Well, actually, he wears more pink than an eight-year-old princess.

As a nonprofit executive, he built businesses to employ people with disabilities.

During the last fifteen years, David Rendall has spoken to audiences on every inhabited continent. His clients include the US Air Force, Australian Government, and Fortune 50 companies such as Microsoft, AT&T, United Health Group, Fannie Mae, and State Farm.

In addition to his doctorate in organizational leadership, David has a graduate degree in psychology. He is the author of four books:

  • The Four Factors of Effective Leadership
  • The Freak Factor
  • The Freak Factor for Kids
  • Pink Goldfish
