Chris Lyons

An experienced trainer and facilitator, Chris also has over 10 years' commercial experience gained in senior management roles in large UK and Australian companies, before starting to design and deliver memory, speed reading and study skills training programs in 2003.

Chris has appeared on The Today Show, A Current Affair, Today Tonight, ABC TV and demonstrated how effective memory improvement, speed reading and study skills techniques can be on radio stations all around Australia including 2UE, 2GB, 3AW and frequently on the ABC.

But more importantly, his main focus is on delivering unique, fun and highly effective workshops and coaching programs that show you how you too can read faster, remember more, tackle information overload and be more successful, whatever your age or situation.
