Greater understanding and retention

In any company, reading is a huge part of your day-to-day. The Power reading system helps you get through your business reading in a fraction of the time it does now – learn to read more efficiently and absorb more information.

Reduce reading stress

We are constantly bombarded with information and if we aren’t processing it correctly, you and your staff can feel swamped and stressed. School taught you to read at a walking pace, Power reading helps you run through your reading material with ease and maintain comprehension.

Power Reading

Do you feel intimidated by the volume of material that crosses your desk and computer screen each day? There is so much to read, absorb, analyse, and retain and so little time. Lengthy documents such as board reports could take an hour to read through, and as that all important meeting looms, stress levels rise.

If you could triple your reading speed and keep your comprehension, how much time would save? Our one-day workshop sharpens those skills, freeing up your day and stopping you getting bogged down.

We can help you understand the basic structures of writing, so you can find information quickly and easily, and retrain your brain to unlearn slow reading habits. The average reading speed is 200wpm with 60% comprehension. Typically, at the end of the workshop participants are averaging 600+wpm with 85% comprehension.

Emotional Intelligence is how somebody manages their personality to be both personally and interpersonally effective. It means having positive self-regard, being self-aware and managing your behaviour effectively, as well as possessing a positive regard for others and managing your relationships effectively.
