Member Training Program: Gain More from Your Brain (Module 1)

Optimize your performance and save 2 hours a day by using your brain more effectively!

  • 93% of people are easily distracted – We lose 2.1 hours a day due to poor concentration
  • 72% of people read too slowly to read everything – Most people only skim documents, just read headlines or skip entire documents
  • We forget 70% of the information within 1 day – What is the use of any reading, meeting or training if we forget most of it within 24 hours?

Risk comes from not knowing what you are doing.” – Warren Buffet

As knowledge professionals, we need to process vast amounts of information to do our job effectively. We spend 3 to 4 hours each day reading and analysing information. What if you could reduce that by half the time? How do you absorb information faster without losing any comprehension?

Based on 12 years of experience in neuropsychology, Mark Tigchelaar developed the revolutionary UseClark method to help individuals stay focused, absorb information faster and remember it much longer. The method consists of 8 brain principles that help optimize the possibilities of your brain. The effect is that your productivity will increase by 30%, giving you 2 extra hours every day.

Session Outline:
Module 1 of 3*: Absorbing Information -
you will discover how to read and absorb complex information faster. During this session, you will learn:

  • How the brain works and how to gain more from it
  • 3 techniques to absorb information faster
  • How to improve your comprehension and memory
  • How to read effectively from a screen

*Future modules (Date - TBC) include:
Module 2 of 3: Laser Focus - you will discover the 6 concentration leaks and how to stop them
Module 3 of 3: Memory Master - train your memory muscles using scientific techniques

Those who attend this session will have the priority to attend Module 2&3 in the future sessions.

Who should attend?
Knowledge professionals e.g. Lawyers, Auditors, Accountants, Consultants, Investment and Insurance Professionals, Bankers or Students; anyone who needs to absorb and process large amounts of information daily and don’t have the time to effectively absorb it all.
