Excellent focus, attention to detail, meeting deadlines, reliability and organization -- they are all things employers are looking for in employees. But when you have ADHD, these can be a real challenge; making it tough to excel at work and sometimes even to keep your job.


Richard Slovenski, CEO of ATP Fitness, understands the struggles better than most. He has ADHD himself but has managed to thrive, despite the challenges, and held a number of senior management positions at BHP before 'retiring' to set up his own business.


Clearly, Richard had found ways to leverage on his strengths and mitigate his weaknesses so that he could consistently create value for this team and his employer. But even more significantly, as a business leader, he has had the opportunity to hire and develop younger colleagues, some of whom have ADHD.

Join us as he shares his insights on how he adapted as an ADHD individual as well as what he learnt from mentoring younger ADHD colleagues and clients.
