You will double your reading speed by the end of this exciting seminar and you will increase your reading comprehension and reading pleasure! You will read more in less time!

We get more printed information thrown at us in one day than our great-grandparents saw in a lifetime. (Beyond a seed catalog and a book or two, what did they have to look at and absorb?)

Today, information is coming at us from all directions. Books, memos, periodicals, email, newspapers, reports, faxes, magazines, the Internet, and more leave many buried, able to wade through just a fraction of what they need to know. Do you happen to know anyone who has a stack a stuff that they haven't had time to go through? Maybe that's you.

Knowledge is power. This is the Information Age. Half of what we know today, we didn't know just fifteen years ago. The amount of information has doubled just in the last fifteen years and some experts predict it will be doubling again every two years.

Everyone has books on the shelf they've never read because they didn't have the time. Some even find reading a slow, laborious task because they read slowly, their mind wanders, they're often having to go back and re-read what they just read.

You cannot control the flow of information to you and if you don't increase the rate at which you read, you are seeing less and less of what's out there.

The average person spends about two hours per day reading at the rate of about 200 words per minute. If you can double your reading speed, you can cut your reading time in half. What takes two hours can now be done in one hour.

An extra hour a day for you. Seven hours per week and 365 hours for you over the next year. That's the equivalent of nine free workweeks over the next year to spend time with your family or hobbies or work on those important tasks that are being neglected.

Let's look at this in terms of dollars and cents. If a person is making $37,500 per year and is wasting just one hour per day, it is costing the employer $4,687.50 per year in paid for, but lost productivity. This does not include benefits (an additional $2,343.75), or overhead (an additional $1,171.88) or profitability from that person's wasted time (an additional $4,687.50). One lost hour of productive time costs the employer $12,890.63 per employee.

If a group of just eight employees can save just one hour per day, gain one more hour of productive time, that's the equivalent of adding on one new free staff person, without a salary, without benefits or overhead costs.

It can be done. Easily and with a lot of fun!

Don Wetmore, the country's leading expert on Personal Productivity, offers the most comprehensive Dynamic Speed Reading seminar anywhere. At the end of our one-day, six-hour class, you and your participants will double your reading speed and significantly increase your comprehension level and reading pleasure.

Imagine reading a book in one sitting! Or reading those books you bought, never read, and placed on the shelf. 95% of all the books purchased are never read.

How about going home each night with all the paperwork done, with a clean desk for the next day! What better way to insure your career advancement and success?

"Probably the best seminar I have ever invested in!" "Don shows you the "how to" in simple, easy to follow steps." "I've never enjoyed reading so much and been able to read so much."

What you will learn:

  • How to easily read beyond the way you were taught in the first place
  • How to eliminate the blocks that cause you to read slowly
  • How to avoid losing concentration when your mind wanders and you have to go back and re-read the same material
  • Time Management tips to provide you with several more hours in your week to read more of what you want to read
  • Tools to maintain your new skills and to continue to improve your speed and comprehension
  • Multiple reading techniques for different materials
  • Improved memory tools
  • And a whole lot more!

"I can't believe how much fun this was!" "I'll sign up the sales staff for another one!" "I learned a lot more than I planned on. This was great!"

The "Myths" About Dynamic Speed Reading

Speed Reading is just a "skimming technique".
Not true. You will read significantly faster and read every word. You will learn how to eliminate the blocks that slow you down.

Speed Reading requires a lot of formal education.
Not true. Anyone with a basic, primary reading ability, can learn and apply Dynamic Speed Reading tools to double their speed and comprehension.

Speed Reading will reduce my comprehension.
Not true. In fact, it's the opposite. Increasing your reading speed will significantly increase your comprehension and concentration. You will not only be able to read a lot faster but you will be more effective.

Speed Reading requires a lot of study and practice. Not true. You will learn simple, easy techniques and double your reading speed by the end of this unique six-hour seminar. You get the results during the seminar as you apply the new, easy techniques you will learn.

Speed Reading will not permanently change my reading speed.
Not true. Not only will you double your reading speed and significantly increase your comprehension and reading pleasure by the end of your six-hour Dynamic Speed Reading seminar, you will receive the easy tools to permanently maintain your new skills and improve them in the weeks and months after your seminar.
