How many times have you bought a course, exciting to learn something new and then not completed it because it was so boring? You tried, you really did but the presenter droned on and on and you lost interest! I get it because I have ADHD and it has always been difficult for me to learn anything, hence THE CAPTIVATING SPEAKERS PROGRAM. My mission is to save the world from terminal boredom.  My team produces captivating content that sticks. The goal is to give you all the tools you need, without all unnecessary fluff and presented in an entertaining way. WE MAKE LEARNING FUN! Nobody can be a greater example of this than Rick Segall.
