One simple fact of life in today’s world is that generally people are time poor.
When computers first made an appearance in any great numbers in industry and commerce, it was muted that ‘because they would do all the work, we would have more leisure time to enjoy’. Where did that theory go in the intervening years?
With the advent of computers, more information is fed into them, analysed and reports and analysis produced! Added to which, if all this analysis is to be of any use, it needs to be read!!
People in all walks of life find themselves reading copious amounts of information and data in preparation for attending meetings, presentations, discussion groups, local authority committee meetings concerning planning, finance, etc.
In simple terms, this participative half day course is designed to help people read faster. There is good reason for it being half a day and not a whole one. The technique of speed reading means adopting new reading techniques and skills, which, in essence requires everything learnt about reading up to the age of around 12 to be ‘forgotten’.
