How an Underachieving Child Grew Up to Help Thousands of STUDENTS Unleash Their Greatest Potential
At age 8, Adam Khoo was expelled from school for misbehaviour and poor academic results. He was labelled “slow, forgetful and lazy”. Faring poorly at PSLE, he was rejected by his top six schools of choice.
15-year-old Adam was exposed to Neuro-Linguistic Programming™ (NLP™). He developed powerful study skills and learnt to set clear and measurable goals. He began to model the success strategies of top students.
Spurred by his own experiences, Adam created the I Am Gifted!™ programme to help children and teenagers unleash their greatest potential.
Once told that he was a bad writer, Adam made headlines when I Am Gifted, So Are You! topped the national bestsellers list, beating acclaimed international titles. He was 24 years old.
At National University of Singapore, Adam ranked amongst the top 1% of academic achievers and became a pioneer in the NUS Talent Development Programme.
During National Service, Adam wrote the first manuscript for I Am Gifted, So Are You!. He was rejected by 9 publishers before it was finally published.
Having mastered the skills for effective learning, Adam topped his school for O-Level and broke records by being the only student in his school to be accepted into Victoria Junior College.
He wrote articles on memory-building, self-motivation and speed reading to help his friends improve their grades. Eventually, his articles were published by Teenage Magazine.
A truly homegrown brand spreading its wings across the globe, I Am Gifted!™ went on to empower the lives of more than 480,000 students across 8 countries/regions over the last decade.
