In his late 40s, Rick was diagnosed with ADHD. This made a lot of sense as he began to learn what the symptoms of ADHD are. He could see the signs of ADHD as he looked back over his life and time at university. Though he graduated with a degree from Waterloo, it was a rough road at times. Rick wishes he’d received this diagnosis sooner so that he could have treated and mastered his ADHD, making it work for him rather than against him.

Join Rick as he shares both his journey and cutting-edge, scientific research from medical experts on the subject of ADHD.

In this event:

Find out about the symptoms and science of ADHD in adults

Learn strategies and tricks to overcome procrastination and ‘overwhelm’

Discover how to turn ADHD traits into potential ‘superpowers’ to succeed in life
