"Discovering Your Memory Power and Reading Smart"
In this keynote, Roger will demonstrate memory techniques to help you remember: names and faces, presentations (without notes), to-do lists, student information, and important details from books, meetings and conversations. In addition to increasing your memory power, you will learn techniques to Read Smart. Reading Smart is a great way for busy school counselors and educators to learn time saving strategies to read faster, comprehend more, concentrate better and retain information more easily. You will learn your current reading speed and tips to immediately improve your reading speed without losing comprehension.
During this keynote, you will be amazed! You will walk away with several ideas on how a more powerful memory and improved reading skills will help you be more effective and reduce stress. One participant said it best, “Very helpful and insightful. It was a relaxed environment and we were given tools to practice and implement into our daily routines. I’m looking forward to growth, knowledge and a bit of down time for personal reading! Thanks!”
