Course overview

Imagine Having a Coworker Who Never Sleeps

What if you could have a coworker who never sleeps, doesn't need kid gloves, and you can ask them for anything at any time and they will always say yes?

This exists and it is AI.

By equipping yourself with the knowledge of how AI works, a directory of AI tools for your exact needs, and a keen sense for what tasks can be done with AI, you can operate as a superhuman.

Coworking with AI will completely change the way you work.

Imagine having AI draft any email you ever want to send to your customers, to your boss, or your direct reports.

Imagine if you didn't know how to use design tools like Figma, or Photoshop, and you didn't have the time to learn, you could instead just tell an AI what design you want and it does it for you.

Imagine if you have data you don't know how to analyze and you could just give it to your AI coworker and they would just figure it out.

These are exactly the types of things that you can do when you cowork with AI.

We will teach you to cowork with AI.

We'll explain how the technology works, help you find and identify the right AI tools, and give you hands-on guidance and training.

This is a hands on AI workshop, and you are guaranteed to walk away with the ability to incorporate AI into your daily work.

This is the course we wish existed when we first started exploring AI's potential back in 2016. Join us, and together, let's unlock the groundbreaking power of AI for you and your business.
