Members Only Professional Development Webinar: Speed Reading for Financial Professionals

Event Description

​     worry man study and classic watch isolated on white background

Wednesday, January 12
4:30 PM - 6:00 PM

Speed reading is the process of rapidly recognizing and absorbing phrases or sentences on a page all at once, rather than identifying individual words.

The amount of information that we process seems to be growing by the day, whether it's emails, reports and websites at work, or social media, books and magazines at home. We likely feel pressure to get through this information more quickly, so that we can "stay in the loop"  and make informed decisions.

Join us for a Speed Reading & Memory Bootcamp, customized for financial/investment professionals. These instructor-led sessions will cover speed reading techniques and comprehension strategies customized for efficiently approaching technical content such as research reports, 10Ks, Harvard Business Review cases, contracts, legal documents, emails, financial news outlets - Bloomberg, WSJ, Financial Times, and other daily reading.

Topics Covered:
  • How Fast Do You Read? (Initial Reading Speed Measurement)
  • Speed Reading Fundamentals
  • Changing Old Reading Habits
  • Drills and Exercises to Increase Speed
  • Reading Faster on the Computer and Other Digital Screens
  • How To Improve Comprehension Using Proven Methods
  • Approaching Technical Material More Effectively
  • How To Remember More of What You Read
  • Note-Taking Strategies: How To Take Better and Faster Notes
  • Mind-Mapping to Capture Ideas Rather than Sentences
  • How To Boost Your Focus and Concentration While Reading
  • Applying the 80/20 Principle Towards Reading Dense Material
