Rapid Reading

A Midas trainer writing on a flipchartMany people find that they need to read large volumes of material for their work. It may consist of long, dense textbooks, high numbers of short but important reports, or a wide variety of written sources.

Our Rapid Reading courses will equip you with the skills to read faster and remember more of what you read.

Each course consists of a mix of theory and practice so that participants can try the skills discussed as the course progresses. To be effective, this course needs a minimum of 3-4 hours for delivery. It is ideally suited to be matched with another topic of interest to you, so that it can be presented as a full-day training course if desired.

Here are some topics we may include in our Rapid Reading courses:

  • Analysing purpose and objectives in reading documents
  • Types of reading skills and their benefits
  • Improving reading speeds - what it takes, how do I do it?
  • Dealing with distractions and increasing concentration
  • The 5 R's of effective reading
  • Comprehension, retention and summaries
  • Practical note taking for understanding and memory
