    Interesting approach! Thanks for bringing this up. I'll make sure that David finds out about it. I'm not sure it's compatible with the way we're set up, having licensed partners delivering GTD courses and coaching.

    In MasterClass the creative subjects are largely '101' classes with the celebrities giving an extended interview. The 'hard' courses such as Stephan Curry basketball or Daniel Negreanu poker delve into some details but no one is giving away the store.

    Perhaps David's course would simple cover the same topics he covers in YouTube seminars or in podcasts.

    MasterClass has a thirty-day money back, $180 for all-access, so you can investigate.

    Thanks for the follow-up, good to know that there are now risks investing in it, I may give it a try !
    We still need David there, though :)

    I believe David has a class on Lynda that is Masterclass-esque...

    I know it's not the same but may be fun to watch if you haven't!

    Yep -- I took this course. Our university now has LinkedIn Learning and I can access the course at any time through that portal. It is really good! :)
