Imagine if you could read a 200-page book in 20 minutes? In today’s disruptive information overloaded world driven increasingly by innovation, we are required more than ever to transform the way we learn and think in terms of speed and creativity. In this talk, I will explore some of the things that we can do to stimulate and empower our brains and senses to be more focused, learn faster, and think more creatively.
