About David A. Specht Jr.: For David leadership has been more than a vocation but a way of life. A veteran of the first gulf war, David has led organizations of many types and sizes.
For the bulk of his career, David has been the President of Specht Newspapers, Inc., a media and marketing company in Louisiana. Early on, David taught himself graphic design, sales, and news writing to help lead the organizations under his charge from a position “in the trenches.” He learned valuable lessons, which he continues to apply today.
Other organizations sought out David for leadership, naming him chair of multiple boards, including the Bossier Chamber of Commerce, Greater Minden Chamber of Commerce, Minden Medical Center, and Louisiana Press Association.
In 2005, as Chairman of the Louisiana Press Association, David helped the organization respond to Hurricane Katrina, the worst natural disaster in U.S. history.
In 2010, David launched BIZ Magazine (bizmagsb.com), a business news and leadership publication. Since then, David’s companies have been integral to leadership training and inspiration. In 2018, David and his wife, Tina, embarked on a health journey, losing a combined 180 pounds. This journey led to what David calls his “impact passion” for health coaching. Since then, their business, Specht Health Coaching, has directly impacted hundreds while indirectly impacting thousands of people who seek a solution for their health and weight loss challenges.
He has launched multiple podcasts, spoken before numerous crowds of business leaders, and written a leadership blog at davidaspecht.com for more than ten years.
Today, David wants to help other leaders achieve their purpose and realize their dreams. As co-hosts of the 2-Per-Specht-Ives Podcast, David and his son Joshua bring generational views to the world of leadership to reach common ground.
David’s book, “Old Dogs, New Tricks, Version 2.0,” speaks to his generation of leaders, teaching them to embrace leadership for today without compromising timeless leadership principles. The book will soon be available at Amazon.com.
