Course level



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 is for you.


In two days you will greatly improve your reading speed to increase your efficiency and effectiveness at work. You will learn 37 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. During the course, you will process six books on factual topics of your choosing. You will benefit most if you bring materials you genuinely need to work through, and indeed, many people use the course as an opportunity to complete a work project. Our unique accelerated-learning approach allows you to acquire the techniques with ease, and adequate practice is provided during the course to enable you to use everything you learn immediately in the workplace.
