David Jensen
David Lee Jensen is the Amazon #1 Bestselling Author of The Naked Interview: Hiring Without Regret, a Motivational Speaker, Business Growth Expert and Entrepreneur Coach.

During twenty years consulting Jensen observed that the two most common problem-areas were Marketing and Personnel. He recognized there were already a plethora of marketing experts but no Hiring Expert or codified, workable system for hiring. Business owners consistently said “I Hate Hiring!” So, he wrote the book with solving that in mind.

The Hiring Academy, of which Jensen is CEO, has the purpose of helping business owners and HR professionals simplify the hiring process. Jensen developed The Hiring System materials and consulting.
