Who is it for?
This workshop is for anyone who would like to be able to read their general work-related documents in a fraction of the time that it currently takes.
What is it about?
Speed Reading is about understanding how our eyes work and then using a couple of simple techniques to make them move faster and cover the material more quickly. During the workshop you will try these techniques and, through a series of timed exercises, find out which ones work best for you.
The ideas we cover are suitable for reviewing general work-related material to help you to assess whether the document needs more in-depth reading.
