About Keynote Speaker Joe De Sena

Joe De Sena is all about efficiency. Efficiency with his time, selling a multi-million dollar swimming pool company while in college and creating a 150-person trading firm by the age of 30. Efficiency with his energy, running 100+ mile races, biking cross-country and participating in any gruesome endurance event he can. And finally, efficiency with his resources, expertly managing them to build what is now one of America’s most popular obstacle race series.

If there’s something Joe has learned in nature and in the office, it’s that conditions are never going to be perfect or guarantee success. Whether it’s the blistering sun, tricky office politics, or crippling self-doubt, there will always be hurdles before the finish line. Joe’s talks offer audiences the perspective and frame of mind to understand who they want to be, and the timing, planning and communication tools needed to become that person.

Joe’s athletic achievements are the stuff of legend—over 50 ultra-events and 14 Ironman events in one year alone. Furthermore, Spartan Race is present in over 17 countries, and participation is increasing to the point where obstacle racing is becoming one of the fastest-growing sports in American history. Joe is also the author of Spartan Up!: A Take-No-Prisoners Guide to Overcoming Obstacles and Achieving Peak Performance in Life, and reached #2 on the New York Times best-seller list.
