David Rendall | Leadership Consultant * Speaker * Author
What are your weaknesses—the things you wish you could change about yourself? While it may seem counterintuitive, speaker and leadership consultant David Rendall challenges the mindset that we need to find and fix our weaknesses, because he believes what makes us weird also makes us wonderful. With over twenty years of experience leading people and organizations, he has spoken to audiences on every inhabited continent on leadership, business, teamwork, personal development, education and happiness. His clients include the US Air Force, the Australian Government and companies in the Fortune 500 including AT&T, State Farm Insurance and Ralph Lauren. Rendall holds a Master of Science in Clinical Psychology from the University of Wisconsin and a Doctor of Management Degree in Organizational Leadership. He has authored three books including The Freak Factor: Discovering Uniqueness by Flaunting Weakness.

The Joy School Annual Luncheon is a highly anticipated event in the Houston community. The event features distinguished guest speakers who address current topics of interest to both educational professionals and the Houston community at large. Following the Luncheon, the speaker conducts an interactive seminar.
Proceeds from the Luncheon are primarily allocated to The Student Financial Aid Fund, which supports children who would otherwise not have the opportunity to attend The Joy School. Additionally, funds generated from the Luncheon are combined with Annual Fund gifts to help meet the operating needs of the School.
We believe helping other educators in the community work effectively with children with learning differences is crucial. The Joy School holds an educator seminar in conjunction with The Annual Luncheon, in which the Luncheon guest speaker spends an evening addressing professional educators such as teachers, school administrators, diagnosticians and speech pathologists.
This seminar is generously underwritten and offered to all education professionals in the Houston area at no cost as part of our ongoing community outreach program. Teachers also earn TEA credits by attending the seminar.
Special thanks to our underwriters for their generous support!
