Performance & Productivity In The Modern Business Era

I Teach Productivity, Performance & Human Leadership Strategies To Busy Professionals And Fast-Paced Organizations Who Want To Grow Sustainably Without The Overwhelm

My Mission is simple: eliminate burnout in business to help other growth-minded professionals live burnout-free, perform at their best while living a fulfilled life. In a busy and high stress modern business world, busy professionals are ashamed of opening up about their struggles, resulting often in major overwhelm, deteriorating health (physical and mental) and low performance, costing organizations billions every year. In these inspirational talks, serial entrepreneur and author Dave Ruel, a leader for mental health advocacy and burnout prevention in the modern workplace, shares the story of his battle with burnout. He openly shares how he recovered from it and how he is now permanently staying out of the burnout zone while performing at his all-time best. He now reveals with you the game-changing workload management methodology he created for himself and his employees to efficiently manage Time, Tasks & Talent and unlock burnout-free, sustainable, performance.

About Dave Ruel

Dave Ruel is a former competitive physique athlete turned serial entrepreneur, author, speaker, and leadership mentor.


After founding and growing multi-million dollar online companies in the field of health, fitness and sports nutrition for nearly a decade, Dave saw the dark side of entrepreneurship gradually rob him of his freedom, leaving him burned out and unfulfilled. Refusing to conform to a broken business culture that promotes workaholism and non-stop hustle, Dave created a sustainable structure and systems for his life and business to reclaim his freedom without sacrificing the growth of his companies.


Fueled by his passion for entrepreneurship and human performance, he launched Effic, an innovative leadership development company that helps busy entrepreneurs maximize their impact and freedom.


Following his “efficiency first” philosophy to entrepreneurial productivity and performance, Dave developed a powerful methodology that he sums up in the best-selling book Done By Noon - How To Achieve More By Noon Than Other Entrepreneurs In A Full Day.


Effic's systems, frameworks and tools, including the Effic Planner, are now used by thousands of entrepreneurs all around the world. Effic has also built a fast-growing network of Effic Certified Partners who teach the methodology on 3 continents, in countries including Australia, the United Kingdom, Norway, Canada, and the USA.


Dave lives on the East Coast of Canada with his wife Karine and their 2 daughters.
