Extended Bio (for event publications)

A highly sought-after author, speaker, and business coach, Dave Crenshaw is the master of helping businesses triumph over chaos.

The irony of Dave’s mission is that he considers himself very chaotic and inherently unfocused. In fact, he was once diagnosed by a clinical psychologist as “off the charts ADHD.” Dave took that diagnosis as a personal challenge and developed simple systems that fast-paced business leaders worldwide now utilize to improve focus, structure, and stability.

Crenshaw received his degree in Business Management-Entrepreneurship from the Marriott School at Brigham Young University, one of the nation’s top Entrepreneur programs. Dave was mentored and taught by many serial entrepreneurs, including Larry H. Miller, former owner of the Utah Jazz NBA basketball franchise. He began his coaching career in 1998 as the youngest independent consultant for one of the world’s largest small business coaching firms.

Dave Crenshaw’s humorous and entertaining approach always hits the mark with audiences. His speeches are described as dynamic and life-changing. He also frequently appears in the news worldwide, including TIME magazine, FastCompany, USA Today and the BBC News. However, Dave is most proud of being cited by Chuck Norris in The Official Chuck Norris Fact Book.

Dave’s first book, The Myth of Multitasking: How “Doing It All” Gets Nothing Done, is a time management bestseller available in many languages worldwide, including Korean, Italian, and German. His second book, Invaluable: The Secret to Becoming Irreplaceable, was released in 2010. His third book, The Focused Business, was released in 2013 and regularly appears on small business bestseller lists. Dave’s courses on lynda.com (a LinkedIn company), including Time Management Fundamentals and Small Business Secrets, have received millions of views.

He is the founder of Invaluable Inc., a coaching and training corporation that has helped transform thousands of businesses around the world.

Dave lives in the shadow of Utah’s Rocky Mountains with his wife and children.

"Our business has grown financially. It's grown in organization and stability of our systems. Our employees are definitely happier and most importantly - my stress level has decreased substantially."

"Invaluable bridges the gap between employee - manager relationships and productivity. Companies that implement this message not only stand to improve their bottom line but also make their work environments happier for everyone."

Keith Ferrazzi
Author, Never Eat Alone

"Dave Crenshaw demonstrates how multitasking is, in fact, a lie that actually wastes time, energy, and money... 'switchtasking,' as Dave calls it, not only uses up more of our resources, but it also diminishes our overall productivity."

Chuck Norris
Actor and Martial Artist
