Speed reading in ten easy steps

Category: MASTER COURSE

Improve your reading speed and learn strategies to increase your efficiency and effectiveness at work.

Who should attend?
If you're feeling overwhelmed by the amount of information you need to process, think you don't have enough time to get through the amount you have to read or just want to be a faster, better reader, this course on '>spd rdng' (or speed reading) is for you.

What you will gain
In one day you will learn a minimum of ten top speed reading techniques and strategies, any one of which individually will impact on your professional performance, and, when combined, will give you the skills to deal efficiently with written materials, including books, journals, emails, reports, contracts, etc. Our unique accelerated-learning approach allows you to acquire the techniques with ease, and practice is provided during the course to enable you to use everything you learn immediately in the workplace.
