The New Providence School District is pleased to sponsor a free parent presentation titled The Freak Factor by Mr. David Rendall.
Monday, August 29th from 7pm - 8pm at NPHS
"Your child’s weaknesses are actually the best clue to their strengths. Furthermore, building on their strengths, not fixing their weaknesses, is the best strategy.
Find out how to help your kids become more of who they are, instead of trying to turn them into someone else. Encourage them to be more different and more unique, not more average and more mediocre."
During the last twenty years, David Rendall has spoken to audiences on every inhabited continent. Prior to becoming a Certified Speaking Professional, he was a leadership professor and stand-up comedian.
David has a doctor of management degree in organizational leadership, as well as 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 and Pink Goldfish.
Have a safe and happy summer, New Providence!
