Peter feels his ADHD is a gift of curiosity and creativity.  He figured there had to be others like him, so he started the “Faster than Normal” podcast and wrote the best selling book by the same name. Peter believes that in the next ten years, 35% of companies’ employees and customers will be Neurodiverse. He coaches companies on the benefits of ADHD and consults them on how to attract/retain incredibly creative and talented people with ADHD. Peter shares these powerful nuggets of life wisdom:
– when you feel you’ve made it big, remember your roots and try to stay humble
– life is too short to sit in one place
– if you don’t like where you are, move, you are not a tree
– trust the process
– learn and grow from successes and failures
– the universe unfolds the way it should
– take the good and the bad in stride
– if you’re not enjoying what you are doing, perhaps it’s time to change

The New York Times has called Peter Shankman “a rockstar who knows everything about social media and then some.” He is a 5x best selling author, entrepreneur and corporate keynote speaker, focusing on customer service and the new and emerging customer and neurotatypical economy.  With three startup launches and exits under his belt, Peter is recognized worldwide for radically new ways of thinking about the customer experience, social media, PR, marketing, advertising, ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and the new Neurodiverse Economy.
