There are many inherent benefits in developing your latent skill of speed reading at work. If you can train yourself to read four times more than your normal reading speed, this means that a business report that takes you one hour to read with normal reading speed can be read in fifteen minutes. This leaves you forty-five minutes to engage in other more constructive activities resulting in you being more productive at work.
The positive side effect of becoming a speed reader is that you will enhance your thinking skills and become better with managing excessive information.
In this one-day workshop, you will learn to read faster, remember more, and boost your productivity.
