Suffering from Email Overload? Speed Reading/Memory Workshop

Suffering from Email Overload? Speed Reading/Memory Workshop

Email overload is a serious and growing problem in workplaces all around the country with many of us swamped by the seemingly endless stream of information which we are expected to read and remember each day.

So says Australian Memory Record Holder Chris Lyons who will be in New Zealand next week to run a 1 day workshop showing how you can read faster, remember more and tackle information overload.

"It seems that we are all under increasing pressure these days to get more done in less time and this creates a lot of stress for many people," said Chris. "The good news is that there are many simple actions anyone can take to tackle information overload and achieve more."

Chris will share his top speed reading and memory techniques first hand at a special workshop in Auckland on Tuesday 7 August. Attendees will also learn key business skills such as how to remember people's names and how to deliver talks completely from memory.
