Blast through emails, books and reports, save valuable time, be more productive. The benefits of Speed Reading are obvious. In this fun, fast-paced Speed Reading Program you will discover the reading techniques used by highly effective people to read faster, boost their productivity and achieve more each day.
Plus go beyond traditional Speed Reading Programs by learning how to remember much more of what you read through the use of powerful Memory Techniques. Designed and delivered by Australian Memory Record Breaker Chris Lyons.
You can take this 1 To 1 Speed Reading Program from anywhere in the world using our Online Training Platform. In Sydney? You can also take the Program face-to-face at Gloo in Balmain.
For your convenience, you can choose between two formats each of which covers the same material, whether done online or face-to-face:
OPTION A: Half Day Program. Delivered in x1 four hour session, either a morning or an afternoon. Perfect if you want to cover all the material in the shortest possible time and in just one go.
OPTION B: 2 Session Program. Delivered in x2 two hour sessions one week apart. Ideal if you find two shorter, separate coaching sessions more convenient.
With both options, the program is broken up in to a number of short modules each of which covers one or several key strategies or techniques, which progressively build on each other through the course of the training. The material is delivered in a fun, relaxed and humorous fashion to ensure maximum engagement and retention. Regular short breaks are also taken to maintain attention and focus. In this way, it is possible to easily absorb and learn the techniques covered whether done in x1 four hour session or over x2 separate two hour sessions. Half Day Program Discount: As less preparation time is required when the program is done all in one go a $100 discount applies to the Half Day Program option, whether done online or face-to-face.

For Online Programs we use a web-based training delivery platform which enables us to share video and audio in real time. So it is similar to a face-to-face session just done via computer or tablet and over the internet. The platform also allows us to share documents and you are able to view the supporting PowerPoints we use as we progress through the training. For online program you simply need broadband internet access plus a computer or tablet with webcam and microphone.
Both options are live, one to one training and cover exactly the same ideas, techniques and content. Some people prefer to learn face-to-face in the same room and so this is a good choice if you are based in (or can travel to) Sydney. Online Programs offer more flexibility in terms of scheduling and can also save on travel time and costs. Both options work well, cover the same material and achieve the same results.
