Praise, Kudos, Feedback, and General,
All-around-nice-things-said about Dave Crenshaw

With Dave’s unique experience and insight he has helped me personally to become a better business owner, manager and more importantly a better person. I am living proof.

When I started working with Dave a few years ago, I was personally doing so much in the company, but nothing was getting done very well. With Dave’s systems and counsel, I have been able to streamline our systems and processes which allowed me to bring in the right people to get the job done.

I have more time now to drive the company direction and not be consumed by the day to day events within the business. I have gone from working 60-80 hours to 32 hours per week. I have more free time than ever before. I am very happy—and so is my wife! Dave, she thanks you, too. With the wide variety of challenges that I faced, I never stumped Dave. His seemingly countless solutions to the situation at hand were, to say the least, impressive. At times his coaching has also been a life saver.

Jim Holbrook, President, Premier Plastics, Inc.

Dave's coaching has helped my business run smoother, increase employee longevity and we're much more profitable. Personally he has helped me finally find a life outside of work for the first time in over 20 years, it's so refreshing. Any business owner who is struggling with getting everything done will benefit from working with Dave. It's changed me and my company for the better.

Angy Ford, Owner, Bravo Arts Academy

Dave has helped create structure through the SAM cycle, as well as keeping us focused from chasing every opportunity that comes up that will distract us from our core business model. The personal systems I have learned from Dave have allowed me to organize my life, reduce my stress levels, and strike a well-balanced work/home dynamic. I am a much happier person without all the chaos. You CANNOT afford not to work with Dave. The opportunity cost is too high!

Yahya Mansour, MS DDS FICOI

You simply can't go wrong by having Dave Crenshaw present at your meeting. He's professional. He's personable. He engages the audience. His material is absolutely outstanding. We will have him back.

Greg Anderson, Managing Director, Crown Council

I hired Dave Crenshaw to address three hundred entrepreneurs from across the globe on The Myth of Multitasking. Dave has a simple and yet important message which he delivers in a fun, light and entertaining way. I would not hesitate to re-hire or recommend him to others.

David Nilssen, Cofounder & CEO, Guidant Financial (EO Seattle)

At Zappos.com, our core values include pursuing growth and learning, doing more with less, and building a positive team and family spirit. Dave's message can resonate with anyone looking to live those values and make themselves invaluable.

Tony Hsieh, CEO, Zappos.com

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

Crenshaw has mastered the perfect recipe for small business success. This book rocks!

Michael Symon, Iron Chef and Restaurateur

Dave has helped our business revenue grow over 50% over the last year due to a successful expansion using processes he helped us develop. Dave's accountability measures have stretched me as a business owner to get out of my comfort zone and face problems head on in our business. Even though his advice is hard to hear sometimes it … stretches my thinking and encourages me to do hard things. Dave most certainly does not allow me to become too comfortable (or work too much)…pushing me to make improvements that will not only benefit my business but my family as well.

Jennifer Duffield, Executive Director, Dancing Moose Montessori School

He has gotten us focused, and organized which are essential to any small business that is growing. Dave has completely changed my time management and organization skills…I have total control of my schedule, both business and personal. It's an absolute must for any business leader out there. He uses a realistic, modern and practical approach to leadership, organization and time management.

Dr. Saam Zarrabi

Dave did a phenomenal job … high integrity, tremendous content. If you're considering hiring Dave for an event I highly, highly recommend it. He went above and beyond.

Robin Robins, President, Technology Marketing Toolkit

I've produced some extraordinary events with speakers such as the Dalai Lama and Sir Richard Branson. Dave Crenshaw's message, his passion, his commitment to his clients is unlike any we've ever seen before. He was without a doubt one of the biggest hits today.

Koroush Assef, Partner, SimpleWealth

Dave's topic and presentation are incredibly on point! I'm amazed at his unique delivery where he smartly personifies the chaotic villains that pull at our ability to be focused superheroes. I'm not surprised he was our highest rated event of the year and confident that he will continue to bring value to all individuals/chapters that have the opportunity to hear his sound methodology.

Mark Sims, President/CEO at Fikes Products

Weeks after [the event]having heard the overwhelmingly positive feedback of so many attendees, we can say this with certainty: we made the right choice. ... you successfully connected with each person and encouraged them to apply your advice to their unique business challenges. More than a typical corporate keynote presentation, you really took us on a journey. Your dynamic presentation was interactive, entertaining, and allowed...attendees to walk away with tangible lessons.

Meny Hoffman, Founder LTB Summit, CEO, Ptex Group

We live in an ADHD world. And I'm glad we do. But as Dave understands, the secret is to do one important thing at a time, with focus. If you can take the time to focus on his message, you'll be glad you did.

Seth Godin, Author, Tribes

This is the one book I wished I had when I first started out in business. The Focused Business is jam-packed with street-smart strategies to help you achieve success NOW. Crenshaw rips apart all your excuses and will jump-start you on your way to the profits you deserve!

"Famous Dave" Anderson, Founder of the World's Best BBQ Joint

Dave has perfectly captured the sobering reality of an entrepreneurial existence. Follow his advice and your path to excellence and the 'ultimate harvest' will be more rewarding and a lot less stressful. I wish this book existed five years ago.

Raegan Moya-Jones, CEO and co-founder of Aden & Anais

The Kansas City Chapter of Entrepreneurial Organization recently hired David Crenshaw to speak at a Learning Event. We had a packed room thrilled with David’s Presentation/Workshop on The Myth of Multitasking. His humorous approach to an important subject kept the room thoroughly entertained while imparting great wisdom. We would highly recommend David Crenshaw to others.

Luke Ungashick, Automated Ingredient Systems, LLC

Dave has spent considerable time developing a program to help entrepreneurs be more productive. After a year of coaching with Dave my organization has dramatically improved our ability to focus, prioritize and execute on the critical activities that move the needle. I cannot recommend Dave or his approach enough.

Chris Carlson, President, Sales Talent

Dave Crenshaw's systematic approach allowed me to be in a position to sell my business for a tremendous profit, on my terms, and gave me the freedom to focus on my family. He provided me with the tools I needed to grow and organize my business. I thank Dave for his patience, guidance and continual support.

Shannon Wilson, Founder, Westwoods Center of Performing Arts

As an early start-up, we had great enthusiasm, but were unfocused… Now, our business operates smoothly and scales seamlessly because of the systems Dave taught us to create, implement and integrate. In short, He taught me HOW to build my business, not simply get RUN by my business or RUN-OVER by my ideas. I do fewer things with greater focus. I have more peace. I would say, It depends… If you are ready to be stretched into a better person and smarter business owner, then yes, work with Dave.

Michael Jones, Founder at SnapBOOSTER

Dave's advice and direction have refocused our efforts onto what really matters in our business.....saving us time, money and mental energy! Personally, this has freed up a lot of my time and energy. Only work with Dave if you are ready for honest, insightful, coaching. Dave will help you find the courage and drive to make changes- personally and professionally.

Mardi Obray, Peakkids

Dave is an awesome speaker who is able to connect with the audience in a unique way. Everyone left with a new perspective on what productivity really means. It is rare to leave a session with this many concrete steps to improve your business and your life.

Gary Pica, President, TruMethods

I had Dave Crenshaw come to one of my events and speak to about four hundred of my members. Since that first event I've hired Dave again to come and do another session for my people because they just can't get enough of him. Book him before someone else does.

Sam Beckford, Owner, Successful Studio Strategies

Our meeting attendee survey proved him to be the top rated speaker … Dave's presentation was inter-active, provided great solutions and really made people think about the positive changes they could make.

Diana Nelson, Event Coordinator, KFSA

Dave Crenshaw recently spoke at EO Utah's Business Convention. He did an excellent job presenting "The Myth of Multitasking" to the group. He was well-versed, enthusiastic, energetic, and came prepared. Dave spoke on a topic often overlooked in the workplace, and I think it shed some light on all of us business owners. I would highly recommend his services.

Jeremy Day, Dealer/President, Henry Day Ford

It was amazing having Dave in Kuwait and it reflected positively on all the members that attended his session. He was direct and to the point and gave many tools which entrepreneurs took away to their daily business habits. He definitely left a lasting impression and an honor to have in our country.

Ghazi Alhajeri, WIC New York, EO Learning Chair

Dave Crenshaw addressed our group on the topic of The Focused Business: How Entrepreneurs Can Triumph Over Chaos. The presentation was amazing. The nuggets of information that I took away from this session were worth the price of admission and then some. I would see him again in a heartbeat.

Sylvia Richards, NAPSA President

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.

Dave is very knowledgeable with his craft and has a great way of teaching it to a variety of personalities. His insight and follow up is amazing.

Brent Bingham, VP Sales at Winder Farms

Dave has an uncanny way of knowing what ails most entrepreneurs. I've appreciated his insight as a business coach and I use him as an outsourced board of directors. Many of the recommendations he's made have had a great impact on our efficiency and profitability. He's helped not only the company but also on my own effectiveness as a leader.

Jacob Hoehne, Chief Creative Officer, Issimo Productions, inc.

It was the best money spent this year.

Dave is an incredibly multi talented, dynamic and compelling individual. His take on topics such as multitasking was 'invaluable'!

His breadth of knowledge and abundant skill set has been utilized by a global audience of CEO's and Admin professionals.

Over the years at SANG we have had some amazing speakers share the stage like Tony Robbins, Jack Canfield, Brian Tracy, Guy Kawasaki, David Allen, and I can honestly say that some of the things that Dave shared with our group has been some of the most impactful. Dave's message is important and his delivery is powerful. You will be glad you hired Dave Crenshaw, I certainly was.

John K. Stvartak, Business Owner

Dave presented to approximately 90 HR professionals at our CUPA-HR Utah Chapter Spring Conference. He confirmed what many of us have felt for a long time, yet assumed we were the only ones – multitasking has real costs. During his very engaging presentation, he gave several pointers for kindly and professionally reducing interruptions. His message was fun and relevant, and each of the attendees took away several tips to help them in both their professional and personal lives.

Wendy Poppleton, CEBS, SPHR, SHRM-SCP, Director of Benefits, The University of Utah

Dave Crenshaw is spot on with his assessment that chaos is a business killer. If we weren't able to focus and build the correct systems to avoid chaos, OtterBox wouldn't be the industry leader in mobile device protection.

Anisa Telwar Kaicker, Founder and President, Anisa International

As my business has grown, so have opportunities for growth and demands on my time. Like most entrepreneurs I often find it difficult to know when to say "no".

Karen E. Martin, Holland, MI

Dave is extremely patient. He is relentless in his efforts to help you improve, and he really cares about your success, both professional and personal.

In just our first short discussion, Dave was able to help me see through the fog and chaos I brought him and give me tools to find my clarity. The value is more than financial, though I am certain that will be significant, it speaks to my sense of personal direction. Books, seminars, personal coaching... one way or another avail yourself to this rare and talented man.

Paul Pugmire, Owner at Deja Blue, Inc.
