Harnessing ADHD for Entrepreneurial and Professional Success Workshop
If you missed Andre's presentation during our 2020 Conference, here is your chance to hear him share his experience of being an entrepreneur with ADHD and how its diagnosis interfered with his business management.

More importantly, Andre will demonstrate how each typical ADHD symptom is a strength when harnessed and managed, and show how to identify your ADHD impairments, find strategies to manage them to be your strengths. Once identified and you are aware, you can coordinate your efforts, energy and time to work within your ADHD strengths.

The 2-hr workshop covers:
  • Overview of typical ADHD symptoms and their impairments,
  • Real examples of how my ADHD impairments sabotaged my growth,
  • Real examples of strategies I created to work with my ADHD strengths,
  • Hand out and tools to use during the workshop,
  • You will create your ADHD strength highlights,
  • You will generate strategies to work within your ADHD strengths more,
  • You will gain clarity on your ADHD strengths.
Tactical Breakthroughs
Join him on February 23 for a 2-hr workshop. $10 from each registration will be donated to CADDAC.
