6 Accelerated Learning Talk 1. What is Accelerated Learning? A way of coping with the todays information overload Techniques developed over last 15 years, based on brain research Techniques that can enhance the learning of any subject Techniques that can improve memory of any subject Q?

9 Accelerated Learning Talk What is Accelerated Learning? I use the techniques as an IT technical trainer, to study effectively & quickly for new courses I incorporate the techniques in to my courses to ensure delegates also learn effectively & quickly
10 Accelerated Learning Talk 2. Your Fantastic Brain You already have the raw materials for accelerated learning The unused potential of your brain, not 10% unused but more probably 4%
