How to Learn Better
Improve your ability to learn twice as much in half the time
This workshop is based on my book 23 Tips to Learn Stuff Better. It’s ideal for teenagers and college/university students. It can also be adapted to adult learners. By using a few simple but effective techniques attendees will be able to improve their capacity to learn more, understand better and remember for longer. Areas covered include:
- Common learning errors
- The brain and memory
- The Learning Ladder
- Learning strategies
By the end of this workshop, attendees will be able to identify the most important mistakes learners make, evaluate their own learning methods, distinguish between effective and ineffective learning techniques and develop their own learning strategy to be a better learner.
The Sorites Method
Harness the power of insignificant change to achieve almost anything
How often have you started out to achieve a new goal but have given up before reaching it? How often have you made a New Year’s resolution only to have surrendered to temptation after a few weeks? In this workshop we look at how to harness the power of insignificant change to achieve what until now has been unachievable. Using three simple steps you will begin to see how you can start to set yourself objectives and reach them that you previously thought were beyond you. We will be especially looking at subjects such as:
- The Pieces of the Puzzle
- The Power of Habit and Passion
- The Perception of Progress
- Prizes and Punishment
After this workshop you’ll want to rush out and start setting yourself powerful new goals straight away!
Stand and Deliver!
Improve your public speaking and presentation skills
Do you find public speaking a nerve-wracking ordeal? Do you find excuses not to give presentations to a group? Are you one of the many who find their mind goes blank when put in front of an audience? In this workshop we will look at some of the basic skills, tricks and techniques of public speaking and learn (and practice) the five golden pillars:
- Personal Connections
While other public speaking workshops just focus on the physicality of giving presentations, we will be looking at what makes an audience tick and how your thoughts and behaviours can be honed to optimise communication.
