Learn How To Read More in Less Time
Today we consume 7x more information per day than people did in 1987. That is the equivalent to 174 newspapers of additional information, every single day.
In an information economy, the value of a knowledge worker is becoming more and more reliant on their ability to find gems of wisdom and insight amidst the daily dump of information. This requires a skill of reading with speed and precision, as well as organizing and storing the new information that you have consumed.
Digital Irish is offering its members an opportunity to learn how to improve these skills on Wednesday, January 22nd at 7:30 am by attending a Speed Reading Workshop with Patrick McAndrew. Patrick has taught workshops on mental training skills throughout the US to executives at Fortune 500 companies and Graduate Students at Ivy League Schools. On Wednesday he will be teaching reading skills to improve productivity and learning for work and self-development. This workshop is suitable for people of all ages and professions as it has been taught to Fortune 500 Executives, high school students, and everybody in between. You will see a marked improvement in your reading ability by the end of the workshop regardless of your current ability.
In the workshop you will learn how to:
- Overcome reading habits that slow you down
- Increase your reading speed
- Improve your comprehension and focus when reading
- Approach a book or news article to maximise efficiency
The workshop will run from 7:45-8:45 am with 15 minutes for Q&A at the end and will be held at the Bank of Ireland Innovation Lab on 140 E 45th St, New York. Start time is at 7:30 am.
Coffee and donuts will be served on the morning. This is a for-profit effort by The Bowery Common, run by Patrick McAndrew, who is also a team member of Digital Irish in New York.
