"Doubled my reading speed in a very short time. Simple processes, easy to remember."
Mark Elworthy, Director, Merrill Lynch

"After the first 10 minutes I learnt the simplest technique that immediately doubled my reading speed and is so easy it blew my mind. I wish they taught me this at school, doubling my reading speed and comprehension allows me to build a good momentum while I’m reading, which allows me to read faster, for longer and more focused. Thanks Chris, I loved your passion and easy approach to learning the techniques."
Phillip Allison, Real Estate Agent, Belle Property

"My reading speed more than doubled. I always had a strong memory but Chris's techniques have improved it even further. Well worth it."
John Havas, Manager Risk and Compliance, Commonwealth Bank

"Very useful method on how to approach reading for maximum retention and understanding. Currently reading 2 books a month and look forward to applying these principles to cover even more content. Chris was super effective in teaching. Highly recommended!"
Edric Taing, Manager, Stecs Trading Pty Ltd

"Great course, definitely exceeded my expectations. Handy tips and techniques which will make life at work and as a student easier."
Vicki, Senior Team Member, AFP Canberra

"What a great practical course! The first step in changing my reading habits is becoming aware of what I am doing wrong. This course has put me on the right track to doing this."
Lisa Stewart, Solicitor, Gadens Lawyers

"Simple steps to become an awesome reader."
Helen Blazek, Planner, Department Of Planning And Community Development

"A lot of value in increasing your reading speed and memory. With just one session I have at least doubled my reading speed. Highly recommended!"
Vinh Luu, Business Improvement Consultant, Sydney
