get so much more done if only I could take in more information AND

How many times have you promised yourself to read
more and never found the time? If only you could do it quickly and
Its not an impossibility.
What if we could teach you some simple reading techniques
GUARANTEED to double maybe even triple your reading
speed with far better comprehension than youve ever had before?
Introducing our new half-day speed reading seminar
thats blazing across the country and its coming
to your area soon! Designed specifically for todays busy business
professional, this workshop teaches the basics of the F.A.S.T. Reading
Information Management Program. Its a powerfully effective
speed reading method that has revolutionized the way success-minded
businesspeople read and comprehend even the most technical of materials.
Thousands of others, just like you, have decided
that NOW is the time to dig themselves out from under the paper
blizzard theyve been buried under once and for all!
Todays worker reads more now than at any
other time in history!
Think about the information overload that you deal
with on a daily basis. On an average day, you can easily be bombarded
with dozens of e-mails, memos, reports, proposals and more. Then,
add in the professional journal articles, web research, training
materials, manuals and more that you need just to keep up with the
changes in your job.
At best, most of us have just enough time to give
each one a quick once-over and try to pick
out the important stuff ... and at worst, we put it in the dreaded
Read Later pile where it lays until we pitch it weeks
or months later ... unread.
But now, with our F.A.S.T. Program, youll
not only have time to fly through all this reading in a fraction
of the time it takes you now, youll be able to use it better
on the job ... stay on the cutting-edge of changes in your industry
... and gain the respect and admiration of your peers as someone
who stays up-to-date and in-the-know.
This course is a serious way to increase your
reading speed and comprehension, developed by serious training professionals!
We dont claim that youll walk out of
our seminar being able to read 10,000 words per minute like many
of the programs youll find on the Internet, but we know that
800 words per minute is a very attainable goal (the average reader
reads between 250 and 400 wpm).
And we also realize that you DONT have to
spend several days learning this method. In this fun and exciting
half-day seminar, well teach you exactly what you need to
do and then well send you home with all the materials
youll need to practice and master these revolutionary
methods. We dont want to waste your time ... and we wont.
Isnt it worth 3 hours of your time?
Even YOU Can Learn to Speed Read With Our Easy-to-Use F.A.S.T. Program!
Some of our most amazing success stories with the
F.A.S.T Program almost never happened because these people thought
that speed reading was some sort of trick ... they were intimidated
by the process ... or they thought they werent a good enough
reader to try.
Theres no trickery involved. Our method is
based on a combination
of advanced science and the unshakable principles of adult-learning.
In other words just about everyone who practices and masters
our methods will increase their reading speed ... get work done
faster ... and take less work home at night and on the weekends!
Here are just a few of the concerns that some of
our past attendees asked us BEFORE they took this powerful course:
Q: Im not a very fast reader so how
can this course help me?
A: Obviously this course isnt some magic
pill that you can take to instantly transform yourself from
a bad reader to a supersonic reader in just a day. If you have a
reading disability, then this course isnt for you. But we
can turn a fast reader into a lightning-quick reader, and an average
reader can easily double or triple their speed and absorb more information
Q: Im incredibly busy at work and I have an even
more hectic personal life. How much time does it take to learn your
A: The methods we teach can be mastered by just
practicing a few minutes every day. Its completely up to you
how much time you want to spend on them. The more time you spend
doing it will accelerate your learning curve!
Q: Whats the big deal about learning to read faster?
A: The big deal is that the skills you learn to
read faster are the same ones that will give you a higher retention
rate, an improved memory for facts, greater creativity and an improved
capacity for learning in all areas of your life! Youll naturally
improve your vocabulary, spelling skills and communication skills
also. And, all that will give your professional image an incredible
boost as well.
