Reading electronic text, e-mails and web pages on a computer screen is different to reading text from a book and is often 30-50% slower. That’s why Screen-Smart training provides tried-and-tested principles for increasing effectiveness and is important no matter what industry you are in as it is designed to immediately improve your organisation’s productivity.
